COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s not a smoke beer. It’s not a tart Berliner Weisse. It’s maybe a weird saison. BerlinerRauchSaison. Yes! Low gravity beer with good presence of wheat. A small layer of smoke malt disappears after a few sips. And light tartness and spice from the Saison yeast. Refreshing and flavourful at the same time.

yngwie (14907) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle,75cl corked. It’s an unclear, yellowish orange beer with a nice, white head. The aroma has some smoked malts, a fruity touch, some pale malts and hints of grains and beef jerky. It’s medium to thin bodied, dry and soft on the palate, low carbonation level. Some sweetness in the flavor, with salt, something herbal and spiced, feeling like coriander, still not, and a faint bitterness. Lasting finish. Very refreshing and easy drinkable this one, and tasteful too. 140502

Hazy blonde. Light bubbly head. Smokey and with a little tartness. Sour and a little smokey. Good beer, but not as complex as I might have hoped for.

Koelschtrinker (12180) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 20, 2014
Mild rauchiger Antrunk mit säuerlichen Noten, die schnell verschwunden sind. Dafür im Mittelteil vollmundig, etwas hefig, leicht herb. Eher langweiliger Nachgeschmack mit einer Mischung aller vorherigen Aromen in ihrer milden Form. 11/11/8/9/8/10

bhensonb (12138) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Capped 750 from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours hazy gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is lightly, lightly smoky with something like a non-sour Berliner Weisse background. Med body, almost. Flavor is lightly smoky, and there’s something like earthy lemon. It’s certainly not sour, but it is arguably tart. It’s certainly different, and it’s working pretty well on a hot evening. I’m liking it more and more.
