A: Hazy pale orange with a large dense hite head and nice retention and lacing.

S: Cured meat smokiness, fruits (apple and banana), and cloves.

T: Apples, brown sugar, bacon and cured meat, cloves and a bit of banana.

M: Medium body, creamy and a long smoky finish.

D: There are a lot of flavors here. It reminds me of good bacon wrapped around a crisp Granny Smith aplle sprinkled with sugar and spices. I really like this beer. I have no problem drinking a few of these.

Serving type: growler

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!
