Hammy78 (961) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2016
Bottle from the University Plaza LCBO. Pours a cloudy golden colour, big foamy white head, spotty lace. Smells, sweet caramel, malt, also a little smokey. Tastes not quite what I imagined, no sour or tartness or salt. Tastes more like a burn banana, and sweet.

Flavour is also smoke forward but the pear is more prominent as well as some lactic sourness with some light wheaty notes. Average body. Decent.

Smoky more than sour. Milky, but also, somehow, thin. Not bad, but didnt live up to my Oh too high expectations.

explosivedog (504) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 8, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2016 Pint at Vultures Lane. So smoky, the wheat and sour both take a backseat and thats a shame. I like it but I feel it could have been so much more.
