3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
from Erzbierschof - pale and cloudy yellow beer under a firm and long lasting white head; the smokyness comes first followed by fair sourish lactic notes; hints of hay; sourish and juicy palate with a solid carbonation; very dry and fruity finish where the sourness this time dominates the smoke - very interesting

Very hazy gold beer, short white head. Light crisp palate. A touch of sourish citrus. Mild wheat. Turns lemony. Smoke is omni present but never overwhelming. Minerally crisp finish. Sour and and smoky. Not really my thing but it’s fine.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.
The beer is hazy and yellow with a small white head. The aroma is quite smoky. Sour malt and some tart citrus blend well with a prominent campfire smoke character. Lingering tartness in the finish with smoke notes. I think of this as equal parts rauchbier and Berlinerweiss. Interesting and well done. I would have this again.
