3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle from Discount. Pours a pale orange wirh a foamy white head. Aroma has straw, fruit, wheat and smoke. Taste is of lightish sweet bread, tangy fruit, some citrus and smoke. Interesting taste. Gets progressively more sour and earthy through the glass. Finishes light and sweet. I had no clue what to expect but this was pretty good and an easy drinker.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark yellow gold body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is just slightly sour with some wheat, light smoke, and an earthy yeastiness. The flavor is pretty mild in its sourness, just a light hint of it on the finish where it mixes with a subtle smokiness and a little yeastiness. A rather drinkable version of the style, some of the others were a bit more in your face about one component or the other. Medium bodied with a nice soft gentle carbonation level and a lingering finish. Pretty nice beer, very approachable and subtlety complex.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a mostly clear gold with a short white head and lacing. It has a mild aroma of sour fruit, smoke, and faint, grassy hops. The flavor is mild, with tart flavors up front, a solid, malty, smokey backbone, and a slightly sweet finish over a light-medium body. Very interesting.

Very complex beer. Like of mild hefeweizen then sour but very mild. Then some floral sweetness. If this wasn’t so complex the general public would drink it up heartily as a summery ale. Serving: Bottle

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden yellow. Small off white head. Aroma mostly sweet malt. Light body. Just a little carbonation. Flavor lightly lemony at first, then some off-dry malt, crisp but not overly bitter hop finish. Not really getting much in the way of smoke. Maybe a little wheat in the background. Good balance, very drinkable, nice flavors for being so light.

On tap at Mr Dunderbaks. Strange brew: Gold pour, white head. Wheat and smoke aroma. Tastes are not really sour. Wild part knocks down the smoke some. Not sure what to make of this. 6.2

Säuerlicher, mild hopfiger Antrunk. Dann etwas bitterer werdend, geringe Intensität mit minimalen Kräutern. Enttäuschend. 11/9/8/8//8

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught(!) at Braukunst Live, München 02/2014. Aroma of wey, peachy wheats and whispy smoke. Pleasant light palate, pillows of eggwhite. Wheat acidity, delicate pale smoke trails and zest. A late, almost lambic-like old hop bitterness kicks in after a while, adding layered and timed complexity to a beautifully designed and revived for sessioning historical beer style. Now only to make it available in sessioning quantities on its continent of origin...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at BKL 2014. Bubblegum and vanilla Weizen aroma, a hint salt and smoke. Yellow, white lace. Medium body, lactic dry. Smoke and spiced salt on a light wheat base. Maggi finish. I liked it.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bottle. Nose is wheaten, lightly tart with beech smoke that starts slight and gains in prominence. Pours clear golden with medium carbonation and lacing white head, even slight legs. Taste is tart to start but that’s caught and quickly passed by an ultra-smooth and rounded beech smoke. Strong lemony citrus character with some wheat, not intensely flavorful but allows for a lot more (and longer) enjoyment. Just a touch of lactic and the tartness is quite restrained (no one on this site would call this a ’sour beer’). Woodiness detached from smoke also present and long-lasting through the aftertaste, citric hops are a little green, bitterness low, little hints of choice harvest grain here and there, but overall fresh and clean. No signs of alcohol, medium body ... this is a tremendous volume drinker, or quaffer, with a lovely rounded mouthfeel and the grace of extended age. It won’t get the high marks of an imperial stout but it’s made extremely well and I’d rather have this ten times out of ten.
It’s just so mellow and easy-going, balances all its elements and manages significant complexity for such a light beer. [2014.01.20: 4.2]
