2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap sample. Poured a cloudy yellow color with an average white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Light aroma of wheat and wet wood smoke. Medium body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Light wet wood sweet flavor with a sweet finish of short to medium duration. Interesting brew that was worth trying once.

Tap at Rye and Thyme, pretty decent little gose, a bit expensive at this particular bar, but the taste is spot on, hints of coriander, and a touch of tartness but not overpower, quenching and refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught. Pours a very hazy pale gold with a thin white head that lasted until nearly mid-glass. Mild smoke in the aroma along with some wheat grain and citrus. The flavor is mild smoke again with ample wheat grain and some tart lemon. Dries out very quickly. The dryness lingers on the palate well after the swallow. An interesting beer to try, but I much prefer Blind Bat’s Vlad the Inhaler.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pouring at BCTC. Pours a hazy gold with a thin white head. Soft wheat, very faint smoke on the nose. Medium-bodied, bigger smoke than the nose suggested, chewy wheat. Rather one dimensional, wheat and smoke. Smoke on the finish, light and musky.

Draft. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Lightly smoked and weaty malts, toasted grains, some faint bitterness, and a clean grainy malty finish. Clean, crisp and very drinkable. Nice.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Rattle. This is legit, god damn. Not much smoke, but dry as hell, husky, slightly citric. Grain profile is perfect. Tell someone this was a Hill saison and they’d never doubt you.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours a greyish yellow with a white head. Aroma is smoky wheat. Taste is lightly smoked with a slightly sour, kind of lemony taste going down. Full flavor for the low alcohol. Tasty. An acquired taste for sure though.

Draft at spuyten deuyvil in Brooklyn. Pours a light yellow color. East drinking like a wheat helles or small beer. Nothing great but not boring.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz pour at Smoke and Barrel. Pours a very hazy straw gold with some thick, cloudy white head. Nose is real cool, ashy burnt straw, smoked almond, some gravlax, a bit of dried lemon peel. Flavor is the same, straw, ashy hay, some sand, lemon, a bit briny too, like an oyster, more of that pricey smoked almond. Clean finish. Nice.
