look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: dark, reddish amber liquid, relatively clear till the lees are dumped in... throws up a big foam stand, which falls, leaving a constant, creamy, thick-ish pad atop... very nice

S: light-to-moderate campfire smoke... mild-moderate dark wheat malt... perhaps some faint doughy yeast

T: sharp, clove-y phenolics... bubblegum far in the background... sweetish whole wheat bread... fairly familiar Bavarian yeast character providing color... washy aftertaste of caramelized wood, dark bread crust, gummy gluten

M: typical, fullish, beta-glucan-rich feel for a weizen, with a bit of an elastic flow... fairly dry in the finish, perhaps a slight residual yeasty film on the palate

O: actually not too shabby once you get into it... the smoke elements are pretty well balanced with all else... no telling how old this bottle might have been though

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.
