3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml. Hazy golden pour with a one inch, creamy head and lots of effervescent action in the body; the look of a Belgian Tripel. Nose of smoky wheat and resin, with a hint of dish soap. Taste is upfront with smoke and light wheat that develops into a smoky, lightly peppery cracker with some touches of wild garlic, green grass, resins and lightly sour citrus on the finish. I normally only consume beer, but this seems like it would pair nicely with some sort of fish. I might take up eating food again just to see. Light body is smooth, and surprisingly seems lightly carbonated with a slight oily texture, and is to the dry side.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted on draft at the Yazoo tap room on 3/7/13. Pours hazy dark yellow with almost a brown tint and a thick white head that slowly recedes to average but rocky lace. The nose is dusty cracked wheat malt with a light hint of smoke and a bitter, almost green coffee note. The flavor is light wheat malt up front, moving to an almost creamy wheat flavor and ending with a very lightly, very light coffee note. The body is medium with an almost creamy texture, average carbonation and a long strangely bitter finish.

This was an odd one. Murky brownish orange and no head. Smells fruity, wheat-ish, some smoke aromas. Very watery on the first sip. Taste is Lemony, some wheat malt, some smokey notes. Dry finish. Not a total lost cause by any means, but maybe needs a few minor tweaks.
