3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Blond mostly clear beer with small head. Fruity, spices, anise, Belgian yeast style. Medium bitter, tasty malt, well developed. Wheat did a good job here. Nice brew. Still not sure why the wars are mentioned on the label. :-) (33cl bottle from Bière Révolution shared with Guus and Tim)

Pours hazy yellow with thin, white head. Very fruity aroma with orange and citrus. Nice bitter taste but not too sharp. Kind like IPA with the hops toned way down. Soft mouthfeel and carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pour at The Beagle, Chorlton. Interesting beer. Did not realize the style of this at first, as the lager and yeasty notes mix with a pale ale esque feel. Did not detect the smoke, though there is a quality in here that does not come through at first.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge, dense, just off-white head, fed by lively carbonated clear golden beer with faint orange sheen. Fragrant USA hops; exotic fruit, rosewater, melon, ever so slightly meaty/phenolic. Bitter, hoppy, finish being resin mixed with (exotic) fruit. Grapefruit(peel). Only after quite a few good sips, a new flavour appears that, knowing it, is indeed smoke(y/d). More obvious is the fattiness the blurb speaks about, making it indeed more than light bodied, and quite slick/oily. The beer is (more than) OK. But has it really become that hard to find a fitting name for a beer? Stalins organ - PUH-lease!
