3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Almost a regular hefe, the smoke wasn’t very strong to me at least. I love the refreshing qualities of a good well made hefe on tap, the freshness and the phenol/ester fun, here it didn’t disappoint. Just a shadow of smoke in the aroma and flavour, none in the finish for me.
Love these guys, pretty sure a sticke alt is on deck...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Cloudy amber color with compact head. Mild aroma of malt, some paper, very light smoke. Light and smooth mouthfeel, with light wheat flavor and very light smoke; low bitterness.
Quite delicate, but it seems simplistic.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(4oz sample) Sampled at the brewpub. Clouded golden body beneath a creamy white medium head. Nose is generally hefe-banana. Smokiness comes out mid-palate, its funny because this is very, very mellow. The weizen wheatiness is highly apparent and nice but 20oz of this smoke and banana flavour would have been much.
