3.45/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass

A: Amber color; a clear yellow/orange. Half finger head that leaves way too soon.

S: Sweet, smoky; wafts of burning cedar

T: Smoke all the way, but not overpowering. Light, very drinkable.

M: Light, smooth; low carbonation

O: Not an overpowering smoked beer. A good entry from Bayou Teche. Maximize with a burger or cheddar.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Thank you shan8454 for this one in trade.

Appearance: Reddish amber with a thin off white head that lingered. No lacing on the glass.

Smell: Sweet and smokey, with a meat like smoky smell.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of sweet citrus and hops with a strong but pleasant barbeque like smokey flavor.

Overall: Great brew! I would have this one again for sure.

3.49/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is clear light amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high beige head that quickly died down, leaving wisps of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of smoked cherrywood are present in the nose, although there is a lot of iodine so the smell mostly resembles Band-Aids.
T: Just like the smell, the taste has lots of Band-Aid flavors along with notes of smoke. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite easy to drink hived its wheat base, but you really need to have grown accustomed to the Band-Aid aromas and flavors to appreciate it.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Amber, mostly clear, small white head has little retention and lace.

A little sweet overall, with smokey notes mostly in the aftertaste. A touch of wheat twang, campfire, and smoked meat. Caramel, bready sweetness.

A little heavier than expected, but still a medium feel with medium carb. Finishes mostly clean.

Intriguing combo of smoke & style. I feel like this has potential, but not fully executed.

Bayou Teche Boucanee’ has a very thick, foamy, cream-colored head, a clear, bubbly, copper appearance, and slight lacing left behind. The aroma is of an overriding smokiness with an undercurrent of sweetness and wheat bread. Taste is of wood smoke, caramel, sugar, and a touch of bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Bayou Teche Boucanee’ finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and semi-dry. Overall, it’s very smoky and not like a wheat beer. I think it is good and interesting.
