3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home, 330ml, poured into a weizen glass, ABV 7.5%
Deep orange golden colour on the body, lots of activity in it, with a good sized off-white head, a bit thin though but with ikay retention, leaving light lacing on the glass.
Aroma consists mainly of smoke, although some of the wheat is still notable on the back, along with clove.
Taste has wheat, lots of metal, smoked meat, light clove.
Overall okay, interesting beer.
Medium thin body, good lively carbonation. Moderate dry palate.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Bierkoning, thanks! Spicy-yeasty, vinous-tart and pale malty aroma, only then some smoked notes chime in. Vapid, empty taste of light malty, discernably alcoholic water, with a spicy, light smoky, very alcoholic-astringent finish. Tastes like a light smoked tripel gone really wrong.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The smoke is there and tasty, but the wheat is a bit too present with it’s sweetness. Needs some more balance.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled draught @ Tilburg Bierfestival 2013. Murky no head, lemon yellow & basically no white head. Nose is smoke, leather but dominated quite a bit by thick lactic wheat, citrus. Taste is sour smoked wheat, leather, lactic sourness dominates but leather is the first thing I am getting, sour wheat & lemon. Flat, hazy thick wheat. Agreeable but surely it is not meat to be sour?
