I don't know about this beer. I have had one bottle of this and don't know if it's just an infected batch I got but I get a lot of Funky smell and taste from it. Tastes like it has lacto bacteria in it to me. I have had some smoked beers before, but this flavor is not the smoked variety to me. Its not bad but not what I was expecting.

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.

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.

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.
