3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Originally reviewed: 2/9/11. Bottle #1,376. 22oz bottle poured into a tall tulip.
This one pours out a faintly-cloudy deep orange with a finger-width white head on top. Minor bits of lace cling to the glass. The aroma starts out with notes of grapefruit and mango. The smoke sneaks in at the end, but once it comes through, it’s all I can smell. Charred wood, bacon, smoke. There it is. I like the melding of citrus and smoke more than I thought I would.
The mouthfeel on this beer is a big downside. This is thin; carbonation is lacking, and it is just too slick for the "bigness" of this beer. More bite! The citrus tones that I got in the nose carry over to the flavor, but are masked much more by the smokiness of this one. It’s not overpowering as a Rauchbier would be though. Smoked meats, malts, and alcohol warmth finishes it out. The booze gets to me a bit. I don’t know. This is an interesting stab at a new style, but I think it can be a bit messy at times. I’m glad I tried it though.
