Absolutely how incredibly distinct the fruit wood smoke comes through in all of the stages of a taste from start to finish.

Draught. nose is fruit, some citrus, some pineapple. Something phenolic. I’d guess Brett if I didn’t know it was smoke. well played. Just orange without much head. Flavor is yeast-forward, with lots of depth. Fruit and flowers. The vaguest smoke. So well balanced and complex. Gorgeous.

Pours a deep, thick golden orange with a head as thick and tall as, um, something REALLY thick and tall. Aroma is bready lemon zest shavings with a touch of attic must and old wood. Light whisps of rosy hops in there too. Flavor is buttery smoke with light notes of pepper, bread, and a touch of orange. Some dark fruit tries to emerge but decides to sit back down. Really interesting flavor; the smoke would seemingly detract but in this case it adds to the complexity and enjoyment. Slippery mouthfeel. This one’s a winner in my book.

Poured an amazing hazy yellow with a thin head. Slight spice in the nose but really drinkable. Love all the yeast.

12.7 ounce bottle thanks to Errl. Pours a hazy copper with a white head of thick foam. Good retention. Aroma is a sort of earthy dryness. Taste is mildly bitter throughout with a bit of funk coming through. Not sour necessarily, but just a little funky. Fruity and floral notes. Really nice.

Rock on! I’m the first San Antonio Rater (to my knowledge). Smells like a Belgian golden ale, some spice, banana and fruity malt esters. Cloudy honey color in the glass, very fizzy as others have noted. A bit straightforward Belgian golden ale taste until you get to the aftertaste, some peach and pepper, with a touch of cinnamon. The flavor lasts a long time on the palate. Overall, a very nice brew. glad I picked up more than one.

Extremely surprising beer. Smells intensely fruity and has big smoked wood notes. Taste is similar with a prominent apple taste followed by other fruit notes.

Bottle from Kegs & Barrels in Plano, TX. Pours a cloudy straw yellow with fizzy white head. Aroma has hints of farmhouse, grass, citrus, just a bit of vegitable and earthy. Flavor is very much the same with a bit more kick that includes a graininess with hints of white pepper and very Smokey. Light-medium mouthfeel with spritzy carbonation. Overall, solid stuff!!!
