This one pours a tootsie roll brown that is capped off by a large, rocky cream-colored head. The smell hits you immediately and it is smoky, meaty with a hint of grains. It is the kind of smoky that you smell on your clothes the morning after sitting around a campfire all night. The taste is much the same but the sweetness of the malt comes through a little in the end. It is not too thick which you assume after smelling it but is rather light which is what you expect from a Weizen. This one is very refreshing but still odd and different being a rauchbier. I am very impressed with this one and will be seeking out more.

Nice smokey smell and aroma. Pours a nice mediium brown with a small head that dissipates quickly. Not as smokey a taste as I was expecting and definitely not overpowering. Good flavor and easily drinkable This is a very good beer that you can take your time with and savor.

A- Deep reddish brown. Semi hazy. Only poured about a 1/2 finger of head. Soapy lacing. 4

S- Mostly a pork style smokiness. A touch of caramel. Not very strong. 3.75

T- Different from the nose. Malt bomb for the most part. Caramel, clove, just a touch of banana, light bready malts, and a pretty good kick of spice. Seemed to have an earthy hop presence as well. 4

M- On the thin side. Carbonation was crispish... 3.75

O- This one was ok. The aroma and mouthfeel was much lighter than I was hoping for, but the taste was nice. 4

A campfire wheat beer? Sure, why not. I like fire.
I'm going to try to recall this, so work with me.
Hazy pour, typical of a weizen style with maybe a darker golden color to it. Don't recall the head, I think it was adequate, but honestly. I was going for the nose, and what smokiness and wheat were going to give me for a ride. Enjoyable, if you like to drink the essence of a healthy campfire burning with crisp wood. Some brightness and snappiness happening just underneath, and obviously with its smoked barley. this is a malt forward beer with hops having only a bit player role. Definitely be an interesting food pairing beer and also a sharing beer with those who enjoy such things.
A very old style and traditional one that warrants your investigation, and more brewers in the new world riffing on.

Smoked Weissbier you say? I'm game. As a weissbier connoisseur, I was curious to try this variation. Would it be like a dunkles weissbier or a thing of its own making. Pour dark, muddy coffee dark in a Weihenstephaner Weissbier glass. Average head that dissipates to nothing after a few minutes. Smell is wonderful aroma of warm smoked meat & leather. Taste follows the smell as smoked malt followed by the tart cloves and a touch of sweetness. Mouthfeel is unexpectedly light and carbonation is weak and this is where this beer comes up short. It's a nice change of pace from a weissbier or dunkles weissbier but I'd think twice before paying $5/bottle for another one.
