3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Une arôme de beef jerky et de blé. En bouche c’est encore plus agressif, violence gratuite et buvabilité ralentie pour une petite bière.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Hazy yellow pour with frothy white head. Aroma is more on the weizen side according to me, lots and lots of banana, some clove and a hint of smoke that is definitely present, but is playing second fiddle. It does not stay subdued for long however, as it explodes in the mouth - strong smoky flavor with light wheatiness, somewhat of a clove-y finish. Palate is really heavy, not super drinkable. Not really my style either.
