Lawger (177) - SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2015
Pours a cloudy dark gold with big white head. Smoky aroma. Not like a rauchbier but more like a peaty whisky. Belgo yeast in addition. Interesting combination, like peatsmoked bananas. Medium bodied palate, off-dry with smoky and slightly fruity elements. Low bitterness. Medium finish. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ernest (6516) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle (2014). Head is initially large, frothy/creamy, off white, mostly lasting. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), moderately yeasty (barnyard), with notes of manure, peat/earth, incense (sandalwood?), apple skin, autumn leaves, sage. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A very odd brew for Dupont, and a bit of a mixed bag in general. The aroma is extremely rustic, all the way to horse manure, a usually unwelcome character I find in some smoked beers. This smells more earthy and manure-like than smoky, and quite incense-like as well...and so there are some things in the nose that are appealing while others admittedly do not invite me to take sips. So as Im drinking, Im constantly fighting with myself over whether I actually want to imbibe more. Its satisfying to drink, being nicely balanced (although Id like it crisper/drier), but even here with my second bottle (about a week after my first) Im still not that moved. As much as I love Dupont, sometimes they have mediocre years, and 2014 was definitely one of those, across the board...while I wouldnt really call this a "dud", its just not that compelling.

mile (3235) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, faint caramel and light smokiness. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, faint caramel and light smokiness with light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish - lightly sweetish, light - some smokiness with faint bacon, faint sourness and light - some hoppyness, light metal and faint alcohol. Lightly sourish and nicely hopped smoked beer. Finish has notes of sharp metal. OK but cannot be compared with those from Bamberg or Schlenkerla.

Lukaduke (2486) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Pours a deep golden color with three plus fingers of rocky eggshell foam. Nose is a blend of sawdust, buckwheat honey, apples, hay and a trace of smoked malt. Palate follows with nice balance of smoke, sweet and bitterness. Nice layers of fruit, smoked rustic grains and spicy yeast character that falls into the lingering bitterness.

GTAEgeek (1379) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 14, 2015
In tap at the Brick Store Pub. Hazy yellow, with a thin, white head. Light smoke, orange zest, coriander, and straw. Very sweet, with light savory spice. Light body, syrupy, and sharp. Overall, this is a light, clean, and very interesting beer. The smoke isnt too forward.

HopfenWeisse (1225) - - MAR 14, 2015
Bit hazy orange color with small head. Aroma is malt, some smoke. Flavor is malt, smoke, not that bad.

ajnepple (2901) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - MAR 11, 2015
On tap at Barrels & Bottles. Orange and clear appearance with a lingering off-white head. Aroma of peaty malt, earthy notes, light smoke and toasted grains. The flavor is similar, with more pronounced smokiness. Medium body with a fluffy feel and soft carbonation. Pretty smooth finish.
