750 bottle. Bright light gold and hazy. Small white head. Nose is first smoke, then a bit of funk and yeast. Taste is backwards, with the yeast and funk first and then smoke at the end. Unique. Not a bit smoke fan but this is interesting.

Provided by JJ. Served with a large, foamy, frothy, off-white head that lasts all the way down. Color is a hazy amber. Aroma is yeast, smoke, sour, with notes of fruit. Flavor’s like nose, smoke is prominant, but not overdone; again a bit tart. Body’s decent, good carbonation. Finish is like flavor, fairly easy drinking, would killer to cook with..
