A pint at the Oliver location on a nicely frigid day-off Monday afternoon. Dubbed a 'Rauchweizen' by the brewmaster himself, Gunther.

This beer pours a very hazy, near opaque dark apricot hue, with a thin cap of bubbly beige head, which evaporates as expected, leaving a few specks of island group lace around the glass.

It smells of light meaty smoke, mostly of the seaport variety, bready, grainy maltiness, and a mild wheaty fruitiness. The taste is subtle, fishy smokehouse up front, followed by a semi-sweet wheaty graininess, some tame banana and clove esters, and emerging singed leafy hops.

The carbonation is present, but mostly on the reserved side, the body a decent medium weight, and a hair short of outright smooth, the underwhelming smoke rearing up somewhat. It finishes fairly off-dry, the sweetness of the wheaty malt contending rather easily with the now almost faded smokiness.

A beginner's rauchbier, with the low-key smoke, and people's choice wheat beer as the base. Agreeable enough, but it could use another hefty dose or two of Bamberg's best.
