On tap at the VBC on 8/29/08.

Pours a deep, hazy, burnt orange with a 1/2 finger of brite-white head. Thin, creamy retention that holds strong, leaving some good looking lace behind. The aroma is very smoky up front but that gives way to some prominent fruity orange character that really stands out. There is also some refreshing wheat character that props up the smell as well.

The taste is smoked malts that are much more subtle than they were in the aroma profile, with that orange character and other citric flavors really coming out this time. There is also some additional notes of spice, wheat, and malt sweetness. Finishes sweet and fairly dry in the mouth. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a creamy carbonation and overall pretty easygoing feel.

Wow, this was really unique! Billed as a "Rauchweizenbock" this did indeed possess the smoky nature of a Rauchbier married to the fruit, wheat, and heavier feel of a Weizenbock. This was really tasty and drank pretty well considering the complex nature and beefier body. I love the fact that we're seeing all of these cool, new beers on tap at the brewery!
