Yellowish golden colour, aroma is spices, mild smoked notes as well as some slight herbal and toffeeish notes. Flavour is very similar with some fruityness as well. Pleasant!
Bottled at SBWF. Lightly hazy golden, small head. Fruity and dusty smoke aroma. Dry with light body and clean crystal malt character. Light smoke as perfume atop a modern crystal malt body. Low bitterness. Superficial. djd07 (15543) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle shared at RBWG 2012. Pours a hazy yellow with a small off white head. The aroma is yeast and wheat. Thin mouthfeel with a smoke and pepper flavor. Easy to drink a decent ale. bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 6, 2012
(750ml bottle) Pours a hazy pale yellow body with a medium egg-white head. Aroma of wheat, herbs, sulfur, burnt plastic, and smoke. Flavor of herb, grass, smoke, and sulfur. hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Bottle… Murky golden ale with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Good retention. The bouquet is closer to smelling like smoked meat than any Rauchbier, American smoked beer or Lichtenhainer Weisse I’ve ever come across. It’s full-bodied with mild carbonation. Flavor-wise, this one sort of falls flat, but what are you gonna do? “Wheat is for baking and barley is for brewing,” although if Choc had thrown more acidity my way, I would have scored this beer much higher and I imagine others would have done the same. Finishes coarse and wheaty. Well, at least it’s perfectly-balanced and inoffensive. A+ for the attempt as I’m a sucker for breweries that try to recreate ancient, extinct and/or traditional beer styles; because, after all, no one is putting a gun to their head to do it and there’s a very good chance the brew will not go over well. Otherwise, the beer style probably wouldn’t be a thing of the past now, would it? Big props to ericandersnavy for providing this bottle!
