3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Served in a mug, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with a half inch off-white head. Both the head retention and lacing are decent enough. The aroma is light, the brew smells like wheat, smoke, and some fruitiness. It mostly tastes like smoked malt and wheat, along with some green grapes/grape skins, apples and a bit of tart lemon. The label says it’s a sour smoked wheat ale, but there really isn’t much tart/sourness in this at all. With that being said, it’s not a bad tasting brew! Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s slick, smooth and easy to drink. At $6.49 a bottle, I don’t think I’d pay that price for this again. But it was nice to try once.

A surprising beer on two counts. One, it is much lighter in color tha I expected and two, the sour takes center stage with the smoke notes in back. Enjoyed every sip though. Very subtle.
