I'm not a fan of smoked beers, especially porters, or wheat beers, but this beer turned out to be quite different than my expectations. Appearance was a slight golden color with an small head. Smell was malty wheat with a bare hint of smoke. Taste was slightly sweet, malty and smokey. The smoke taste didn't overwhelm and was quite agreeable. The malts and hops were well-balanced. Mouthfeel was crisp and dry. Overall this was a very drinkable beer and one I would consider for regular rotation. i just hope it will soon be available in a bottle.

12oz bottle shared by Vito at the Copper Mine on 7/24/11 thanks amigo!
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy radiant orange with little to no crown, retention, or lace.
Smell: Smoked tomato juice and a dash of wheat.
Taste: Same as nose but a bit less tomato juice.
Mouthfeel: Thick side of thin bodied with fairly low carbonation for a wheat beer.
Drinkability: Easy to knock back if it wasn't for the not so appealing smell/taste.

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.

An orangey copper body with a creamy tan head. Great retention, nice lacing.
Smells like a Belgian dubbel for some reason-- I rather like it. The smoked notes add a little complexity that comes across with some nice dark fruit notes. Very odd profile from a beer this light in color.
The finish adds an unwelcome earthiness and a touch of acrid smokiness. I prefer it sweet and fruity, and the finish dries out too much.
Body is a bit overcarbonated.
Overall-- it's weird to get the smoke flavor without the stout profile.
After reading the description, I thought I'd hate this beer-- but I was pleasantly surprised (at least at first).

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.

Poured into a pint glass a copper orange with excellent clarity. Good looking beer, at least.
The smell is sweet, and faintly of apricots and figs, as well a a sharply roasted note.
There is an odd astringent flavor present. I don't really know what to make of it. The taste is overall fairly sweet and malty.
The overall texture is on the thick side of medium-bodied, with a lasting astringent quality. Not a bad beer, but I'm not crazy about it.

i see I'm not the only one to get this beer from optimator13. It's good beer, thanks man!
Light peachy-amber colored, clear, lots of nice tiny rising bubbles, head and lace were nothing special, but it's not bad looking at all.
Plenty of smoke smell and a little bit of wheat and malt.
Tastes pretty good, although smoke is most of what you're getting. Wheat and malts accent, much like the smell. Just a touch of fruitiness finishes it off.
Feel wise I like this one, it's got a nice smoky aftertaste, a light body, pretty smooth and ample carbonation, and it's easy to drink.
Overall it's not bad at all. Light for a smoked beer but very drinkable.
