3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Frothy head over a hay coloured opaque beer without carbonation.
Smoked ham, bbq smell.
Salty, ash, smoke taste mixed with Belgian triple sweetness.. hints of cherries even. Fruitiness, peaches? Brilliant.
A surprising on-the-edge, schizophrenic fusion of rauchbeer and Belgian classic triple.
Not a beer you want everyday but an artwork you need to put effort in to explore when you’re in the mood.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tastes exactly like you’d expect: a smoked weizen. Creamy and a nice smokey flavor. I could drink this on a warm day, but it’s no winner.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Brewed with Hallertau Mittelfrue, interesting. Same like the saphyr they brew with. Are they doing those de Molen-like typo’s on purpose? Hazy golden color, medium slight off-white head. Aroma of soft dry smoke, banana, hint of clove, some fruity hop. Nice combination of beechwood smoke and weizen. Quite dry in taste with again some dry smokeyness and banana. Finishes with the dry woody smoke. Could have used a little more sweetness/body, instead it finishes on the dry side. Overall the intensity of the smoke is medium and the smoke is more woody than bacon or peat-like, which I think is the best fit for a weizen-like style. Good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange gold with a thick, foamy, lacy, lasting white head. Smells of smoke fills the air once the bottle is opened, yeast, caramel with some wheat/banana, cloves, vanilla and some sourness. A smoked witbier interesting. Smells a bit musky. Medium thin body with soft carbonation. Tastes like slightly burnt malt which gives the impression of bacon, banana, vanilla and yeast and mild fruitiness. Some citrus tartness in the dry finish but with a lingering smokiness. The smoke was not to powerful and such not overwhelming the drink. It was interesting and I proved to my friends that a beer can taste like BBQ. I enjoyed drinking it but I wouldn’t have it again.
