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 (13555) - 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

Oakes (12551) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2012
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.

bhensonb (11047) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (10643) - 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

A hazed yellow wit with a thin white head. In aroma, light fruity esters with faint smokey notes. In mouth, an explosion of bananas overlayed with smooth smokey notes, a bit of cloves, light and refreshing. On tap at Braises et Houblons, May 1 2011.

Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2011
SO much flavour at 3.8%, enjoyed on tap at Mondiale 2011. Big smoke yet pleasant, sweetish and medium moutheel. Hops right there,pilsner, saison yeast yields some yeasty flavour, unfiltered on tap version. A small head. I would have this frequently if I could.Only a little head.
