3.6/5 rDev -5.8%
This specialty brew is a cloudy golden hue with a respectable white cover and very little to show for lacing. The aroma offers a clear perfume of hickory smoke with a subtle ham and wheat idea to inspire the palate. And the flavor follows but my first impression is that it's a bit watered down from what the aroma suggested. In fact this brew seems to be aiming for a lighter, sessionable appeal with a decidedly frisky feel from pin point carbonation and a generally medium-light body. This is solid stuff that will translate very well into the summer months or to accompany an appropriate meal, but the flavor hits up front and then seems to quickly dissipate into the heavy carbonation. Likeable enough, one I'd definitely drink again, but not a show stopper creation as some of these Abby beers are. However, I don't think they were aiming for that anyway.

Thanks go out to Yamar 18 for this bottle....cheers, Kevin!
It pours a hazy straw gold with a couple of inches of foam, some awesome lacing left behind as the foam shrinks slowly.
It smells like a lovely breakfast minus the eggs; smoked ham, big on bacon aromas, it has my attention 100%.
Tastes just like what I smelled. Big bacon, ham, yeah, the smoke IS intense and is not for the timid but I've never been accused of being timid. It comes in a 16.9 oz bottle and I'm sure, after I'm finished, I would not yearn for another but that's no slant on the brew at all. Sometimes one and done works.
Medium bodied with perfect carbonation.
This beer was, as I have finished, a real treat for me. Thanks again, Kevin!
