Draft at Spuyten Duyvil. Pours a clear deep orange with no head. Aroma of light smokey notes and sweet malt. Flavor is smokey initially (just smoke, no meats) but the smoke doesn't really blend with the underlying malt. I also got some milky, odd, nasty notes. This was pretty bad.

On tap at the brewpub on 12/6/08.

Pours a clear coppery gold with a thin head of brite-white foam. Retains around the edges, leaving just a smallish smattering of lace behind. The aroma is some wheaty sweetness with light notes of toast and subtle smoked malts. I'm also getting some floral hop notes and citrus in the back as well.

The taste is silky mix of bread and wheat with a pervasive yet subtle amount of smokiness going on. Nice tingle of balancing hop bitterness in the back rounds things out. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a nice firm carbonation and feel for a 4% offering.

Nicely done. Good smokey character and this is surprisingly full-flavored for a lower ABV beer. I could have easily put down the 20 oz glass of this that was offered instead of the mere 12 ouncer that I got.

Let me say up front....I am a sucker for a well done smoked beer, no matter if it is a stout, porter, marzen or a wheat such as this one.

A-Copper orange with a medium white head that reduces to a thin cap and leaves spotty lace.

S-Light smoke with a bit of a sour twang and a bit of spiciness.

T-Nice initial sweetness with a touch astringent smokiness to dry things off. Hints of fruitiness (apple/pear) and a bit of spicy bite, hops/yeast?

M-Medium-light bodied and a bit thin. Very clean and quite dry. wish it had a tad more body.

D-Great stuff...a clean, dry, lightly smoky 4% wheat beer with flavour! This is a lovely beer that matches well with the EB&B menu of pizza! I hope this beer is a staple as I am hooked.

A: Amber, white single finger head. Still and clear. Average head retention. Actually a pretty American Wheat beer.

S: Oh the smoke is there. And that seems all that is there. I let it warm some and a slight perfume fragrance came out with some aggressive agitation. I liked there was some complexity to the beer's aroma.

T: Smoky up front and center which gives way to a tart dry wheat flavor. Oddly a soapy aftertaste along with that perfume note.

M: Thin as to be expected. A bit too still and just average head retention.

D: I enjoyed this beer. I would not drink another. The reason I have a bias against "Smoke" beers that are lighter than a Porter or Stout. I just feel these lighter smoke beers do not have the depth of flavors or malt qualities to balance or support the smoke flavors. I guess I view many as a gimmicks and don't really believe the brewers actually enjoy drinking this beer.

On tap at Earth on 11/8/2008

Poured a clear gold color with 2 fingers of foamy white head. OK lacing and retention. Smells of citrus, biscuit, wheat, and light smoke. Tastes of lemon rind, fruits, wheat, biscuit, and grass with a touch of smoked meat juice added in to make things interesting. Medium in body with moderate carbonation. Sweet with a little dryness in the finish and an added touch of smoke. A very different tasting wheat beer, very easy to drink but with a little twist on it.

Appears a slightly transparent, light gold with a small white cap that quickly fades into a mild collar. Gentle spots of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of smoked meats, doughy yeast and freshly picked, spring flowers.
Taste is of camp fire wood inflused meat, dough, and obvious wheat. Mild hopping comes through.
Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied, chewy, with a tad bit of bubble gum dust sticking to the palate.

This beer is a Polish style (not on BA I guess) that's both smokey and hoppy brewed with half smoked malt and half wheat.

This beer came a golden mandarin orange color with a frothy white collar.

Smells of a present but not obtrusive smoke that caries a touch of sour grains (as smoke often does). There's a sweet veggie there too with peanuts and sunflowers.

Tastes of a surprisingly sweet (but as far from cloying as one can get) that's also qutie far from being sour or pungent with a touch of smoke to dry things off. The dryness numbs my palate a bit. There's some sweet carrot and a touch of red apple with some sunflower seeds in the finish.

Feels clean but dry. It really lets you know its been there by the nice dryness. Kinda makes me want another sip.

I'm a fan. It's clean, tasty and I can't say I've had anything similar. This would pair well with just about any pizza they have.
