Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Smoke and Beards is a collaboration beer brewed with Menno from Brouwerij de Molen (Netherlands). It is a smoked Tripel ale brewed with a blend of 2-row and smoked malts then lightly hopped with Northern Brewer, Hallertau and Saaz.

Smoke and Beards is hazy and light golden in appearance with an aroma of light smoke and spice. The flavor is smokey with hints of dried fruit. The dry finish and medium body make Smoke and Beards very drinkable.
Brouwerij De Molen was founded in 2004 by Menno Oliver in the town of Bodegraven, in the Netherlands. The brewery, whose name means "The Mill", is located inside a historic windmill building known as "De Arkduif" that was built in 1697. De Molen has created a broad range of beers of widely-varying styles, including American, Belgian, English and German influenced creations. Menno also has a habit of naming beers with paired words like "Donder & Bliksem" ("Thunder and Lightning"). Once meeting a few of the Allagash brewers, he knew he wanted one of the words for this beer to be beards.*

*No beards were harmed in the making of this beer.

Hadon tap at blind tiger- pours a hazy bright golden yellow, with minimal head, retention and lacing.

Smell is mild- pale malt, yeast, some candy sugar and a hint if smoke.

Taste is very nice but unexciting considering the name if this brew. Lots of traditional tripel flavors; banana, yeast, pilsner malt, candi sugar. If there's any hint if smoke, it lingers throughout and never punches through.

Mouthfeel is nice medium body and light carbonation. I like allagash- but this is not up to snuff imop.
