0,5 l bottle (12/2014) into a weizen. Hazy amber brown body, big head with good retention and lacing. At first all I can smell is smoke, after a while a little bubblegum comes up as the smoke tones down a bit. The first taste is all smoke. After having a couple sips, sweet malts with bubblegum can be tasted. Later through the beer some banana comes up. The aftertaste is dry and mildly smoky. At first there's nothing but smoke in the taste, more weizen-like towards the end. Medium-light body, medium mouthfeel, a bit watery mouthfeel. An interesting specialty, though I necessarily wouldn't have one again. Not as smoky I feared it would be.

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.
