RATINGS: 48   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.38/5   SEASONAL: Autumn   EST. CALORIES: 165   ABV: 5.5%
A farmhouse-style Festbier. Malty but dry, creamy yet crushable. A gentle hint of noble hops and an enigmatic Saison aura.

on tap at the Lions pride this thing should be called a smoked beer. the smoke and malt sweetness blend perfectly

Draft at Oxbow Portland. Pours brown with very little head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Slight smoked malt notes on the nose. Kind of sweet on the tongue. Finished clean. Solid but not spectacular. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to Chow. Pours a cloudy orange with medium off white head. The aroma is yeast, floral, spice. Medium body, spice, earth, nice sweetness, very good.

birricio volo with brewer Tim. odd combo of moke and sour. like drinking acid of a pickle.

maekchu (3947) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 28, 2016
Bottle. Rich and mildly funky fruit nose. Bright reddish brown color. Gentle sourish stone fruit, thin and a bit vegetal. Thin body and lightly astringent. Interesting, mild stuff. Smoke doesn’t really emerge.

KyotoLefty (10311) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 26, 2016
Bottle. Pretty amber-orange color, clear, with lace. Wild bretty nose, some smoke, apple, grapefruit. Fruity flavor, grapefruit, light smoke, a bit of caramel. Good.

MartinT (9932) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2016
My Bottom Line:
Grapefruit seep into wooden smoke and straw, offering acidity among the BBQ notes.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam garnishes the hazy amber.
-Mouthfeel is rather dry and prickly.
-The smokiness is soft throughout.
-This is as well executed as all Oxbox brews I’ve had.
-Smoke and grapefruit is not the intuitive flavor combo out there, so some mental ajustment is necessary to truly enjoy this one.

Draft. Hazy straw pour with off-white head. Nose was caramel malt, noble hops. Tasted caramel malty, with notes of toffee, noble hops, and an earthy finish.

mansquito (6508) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2016
Beer Street, Brooklyn tap: pours amber with a white head. Aroma is bacon, malts, caramel. Taste is not at smoky but hets smoky at the finish. Taste is complex and pretty weird. Kind of candy like flavor in some sense. Nice and yeasty. Interesting.

dogfish120love (1335) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 7, 2015
Pours a dark orange with brown hues. The aroma is bacon and smoked malt. The flavor is somewhat sweet, but for the most part dry. Not an Oktoberfest, but good

kaser (6314) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Dark Orange and cloudy. Draft at their brewpub. Pumpkin and spices tons flavor and the smoke brings it along. Nicely done
