look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Had on tap at Max's

A-Pours a hazy golden color with 1 finger cream head. Decent lacing.

S-Aroma is smoked meat fading quickly to toasted grain and dry grass.

T-Taste is initally some nice smoke and corn but devolves into a bit of a toasted corny mess with some herb and grassy hop on the finish.

M-Mouthfeel gives a light-medium body has a nice balance and a high carbonation

O-Overall a decent blend of the two styles. I think more wit would be better.

Bomber int tulip glass

A- Hazy orange like natural grapefruit juice
S- a bit of orange, but tons of smoke. The smoke kills any spices that maybe there
T- A bit of orange, spices, mad mild sweetness up front, then BOOM the smoke kills it all and leaves nothing but smoke
M- A bit thin and watery

O- Great idea, ok execution. I would have loved more orange and spice with a hint of smoke. I had to eat something salty along with this and it improved, but I could not have drank this on its own

This was just bizarre, not sure if the keg was screwed up or what.
Draft pint at Northdown, quick review from notes.

The color was pale and opaque, as if the glass was 60/40 milk and beer. It looked like tan milk, sort of like the last couple pours from the bottom of a keg, but this had just been tapped. A compact head of tan parchment foam settled after awhile.

Smell was nondescript, watery and grainy, not much to speak of.

Taste was terrible, bitter and watery, very yeasty. Feel was flat and off. Very strange, we passed the glass around and no one could finish it. Seemed like a bad joke... besides the "Kill Whitey" name, which was actually kind of funny.

As an aside, I love all manner of smoked things, Ardbeg, Laphroaig, Schlenkerla. Smoke I can handle, but this didn't taste smoked at all. There seemed to be something wrong with the keg, but it was still served and paid for, thus this review. If given the opportunity I'll re-review for sure. Drew's beers have all been great otherwise.

Appearance - The beer poured a yellow color more emblematic of a saison. I expect a wheat beer to be a little darker. The head was a bright white color with large bubbles.

Smell - Notes of lemon and mild notes of smoke were detected, but these are not characteristics of a wheat beer.

Taste - At the risk of being redundant, this even tastes like a saison. I initially felt like I had a mouth full of lemon rind. Toward the back, the smoke comes in. The smoke is not acidic, but makes be think of drinking hot dog water.

Mouthfeel - The beer was light, as a wheat beer should be. It quickly brushed across the tongue before disappearing down the gullet.

Overall - I love 18th Street, but I do not think I will need to try this one again.
