One of the most original beers I have tasted in awhile. The base of a good hefe , soured and then smoked. The sour notes balance the banana flavours of the Hefe and then the smoke comes through in the finish and the nose. It all works as the balance is there and such the drinkability is maintained. I have never tasted a combination such as this and I applaud German brewers who step outside the tried and true styles that dominate the country.

Appearance:
Medium orange colored body, very hazy, with a thin white head. Light carbonation and light lacing.

Aroma:
Slight tang of tart fruits and and a light sweetness. All malt, no hop notes to speak of. Overall, this is pretty dull as everything is too muted - requiring a fair amount of effort to pick up the subtle aromas.

Taste:
Tart fruit right off the bat. A bit of orange and peach provides a bit of sweetness, though, not much else to report on, sadly... A bit of peat character on the finish and in the aftertaste, otherwise the smoked character is way too muted.

Mouthfeel:
Light-medium bodied with good carbonation. Goes down easy with a semi-dry finish.

Overall:
Worth adding to your palate but there is not enough smokey character though.

3.8/5  rDev -0.8%

Cloudy amber with the thinnest of heads.

Scent is hay,citrus, and damp earth.

Tart citrus and sourdough bread followed by grain and grass. Mineral and faint smoke finish.

Thin mouth with low carbonation.

Really great all around. Not nearly as much smoke presence as I'd expected, but far more complex. Well balanced and very easy drinking.
