3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost black red-brownish colored. Small white laced head. Soft smokey aroma with chocolate malts. Flavor has sweet tar taste with malts.IIRC, this is some what lighter and more easy going than Plevna’s James smoked beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ the brewpub. Rated on 12.02.2009
Aroma is somewhat smoky with tar, some sweetish fruits and sourness. Flavour is somewhat sour and tart with smoke, wheaty notes, fruits and some tar. Somehow wheat and smoke do not fit together perfectly. Not bad still.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
from old notes Murky brown beneath a creamy tan head. Intensely smoky and tar-like with chocolate and caramel; odd blue cheese twang. Sweet with bread and baked ham – nothing sharp – finishing creamy with lingering smoke. Slick with an apple-acidic feel, prickling carbonation, medium-light body.
Downright savory at any but the coldest temperatures; contemplative, but perhaps best with food as a counterbalance.
50 cl draft at Plevna.

Draught@Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Deep rubyish brown, close to black colour. Small off-white and lacing head. Aroma is smoked, some slightly coffeeish and burnt wooden notes. Flavour is smoked wood, some bready malts as well as mild notes of vegetables. Slightly watery palate, but still an ok attempt.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at Pikkulintu. Dark mahogany with sliglt ruby reflexes. Pronounced smoked aroma, smocked bacon mainly, and toasted notes. Not persistent. Cappuccino-like head, quite dense and long lasting. Unsatisfying in the mouth; an excessive carbonation sweeps away any other possible feature and very few stay in the mouth. Just a slightly sweet and smoked aftertaste. Light body. Too many well-brewed smoked beer to compete against actually exist.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught (500 ml) at Panimomestari, Tampere, Finland.
Extremely smoky. Interesting. I have no other Rauchweizen to compare but I guess the main element is the smoke, not the wheat. But I guess I expected a bit more Weißbier-kind of beer. But not bad at all.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 3/20
Simply smoke! Not much wheat beer characteristics at all. An interesting
concept, but does not work as it stands.
