A: poured into a Duvel tulip to a clear golden orange topped by a half inch of dense white head that retains well and leaves some lacing
S: smells of spicy yeast, fruity esters, alcohol, faint smoke and a slight grassyness
T: taste is slightly smoky, sweet malts, fruity esters with some pear flavors, and spices. swallow is more smoke, hop resin, fruity esters and a lingering smokyness
M: this beer sits surprisingly light on the palate given the ABV with soft carbonation and a slightly drying finish
O: I figured the alcohol would be more pronounced given the style but it's pretty well hidden and provides a nice warming sensation. A great beer and I wouldn't be opposed to seeing it again.

Such a beautiful beer as the lasting legacy of a true Brew Mister. Extremely light and refreshing. I am not much of a light colored beer drinker, but on the advice of some local pros, I decided to give it a whirl and was not disappointed. Not one part of this beer is overwhelming... including the "smoke." There is a perfect balance between malt and hops to keep the palate clean though out every sip and the bottle. Even at 10.5 ABV... there is no "alcohol" taste to it AT ALL! The only downside is that this will be the last of its kind...

A-slight hazy gold color with a white head that leaves a small lace
S-smoke, farmhouse aroma with a sweet yet sour aroma
T-smoke, with a funky sour taste, and a bitter aftertaste that fades to a smokey finish
M-light body, and medium carbonation
O-was different. The smoke was powerful at first but fades as the beer gets warmer, and I could not taste the high 10.5 %
