16.9oz brown glass pry-top. No freshness date. Just arrive in VT this week.

Appearance: Poured casually resulting in head filling half my imperial pint. Fluffy, creamy light tan head atop murky amber/brown body.

Nose: Campfire smoke. Some light citrus notes, charcoal. Smells like a bonfire on a sandy beach.

Palate: Medium bodied and not as smokey as the nose would lead you to believe. Don't get me wrong, it's plenty smokey, but it takes a second to catch up. Salty and sandy, tastes of driftwood, seaweed and wet burnt wood. Can't find the wheat anywhere.

Notes: Man, these guys make smokebeer alright. An interesting twist, but without having it side by side with the original it's hard to say what the wheat does. Drinkability is low because the beer is SO bold.

500 ml bottle into weizen glass, no bottle dating. Pours very hazy deep reddish brown color with a 2-3 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of banana, clove, toast, brown bread, wood smoke, wheat, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with well balanced fruity/spicy yeast, dark/bready malt, and wood smoke notes; with good strength. Taste of banana, clove, toast, brown bread, wheat, wood smoke, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of banana, clove, toast, brown bread, wheat, wood smoke, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, dark/bready malt, and wood smoke flavors; with a great smoke/yeast/malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and moderately crisp/creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice smoked weizen. All around well balanced fruity/spicy yeast ester, dark/bready malt, and wood smoke flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
