Trockener Start mit bitteren und etwas süßlichen Rauchnoten. Dabei bleibt die Rauchigkeithinter den Erwartungen zurück, im Mittelteil wird das Bier milder und sogar etwas langweilig. Zuerst steigt im Anschluss die Bitterkeit, danach sind Weizennoten erkennbar. 8/7/6/6/12/6

Into the glass pours a slight cloudy, amber-colored beer with a beautiful creamy off-white head. It smells very yeasty and fruity, subtly sour, with some grape and a subtle smoky background. Starts with sour malt notes, paired with sour yeast and a nice fruitiness. In the background, there is a slight aroma of ash. The middle part is sweet, yeasty and fruity, with a lot of ash and some whiskey. Goes into a very smoky finish with lots of ash (the flavor comes close to an ashtray, instead of bacon, unfortunately), and a slightly tart fruitiness.
Bottle @ home. Clear golden orange to amber with a big white head. Smells wheat, corn, farm, hay, sweet. Tastes slightly smokey, smoked eel, bacon, sweet, hay, farm. Soft carbo, thin to medium body. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2012
Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is murky smokey malt with a really weird swampy notes. Bad start. Flavour is a weird sourish old fruit like smoke. Don’t know if this is really not my thing or something went wrong, but I couldn’t finish my 10cl taster.

Sampled @ Monthly De Molen Tasting. Clear orange color, small lightly beige color. Aroma is indeed smoked, but not too much and almost a bit peachy. Taste is soft, a bit smoked, some yeast and something weird and not really nice. Soft, low carbo, low body. erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 10, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2012 Clean brown body, no head at all. Canned corn, artificial whiskey, dried fruit, sherry, earth. Sharp vegetable taste, alcoholic. Died hop and malt extract. Disgusting. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2012

Clear amber white head. Aroma is smoked bacon. taste is again smoke and bacon, weird and pretty awful. POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2012
Orange-colored beer, a good foam, but with a disgusting aroma of rotten grass. Taste of wet grass with Notes of burned garden waste. Strange compost beer.
