cloudy golden color. Lots of cloves with a hint of smoke. A bit sour. Pretty refreshing, but not smokey enough. Not bad.

Draught at 1020. Pretty orange color, cloudy, with lace. Typical weizen nose, banana and good clove, only very lightly smoky. Also smoke is barely distinguishable in the flavor (heard it was stronger when the keg was first opened), lightly tart, banana and clove. Tastes nice enough for a weizen, can barely call it a rauch. Needs about 10 times as much smoked malts.
