(Served in a 16-oz shaker glass)

A- This beer pours a hazy deep caramel body with a sticky beige bubble head that last for a good bit.

S- The dry caramel malt mixes with smoke and a faint band-aid hit that is not bad. There is a nougat note that grows with each sip and a yeasty apricot fruit ester in the finish.

T- The smoke note mixes with a caramel malt richness that finishes with a pungent flavor that lingers for a moment.

M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with a tight little fizz and no alcohol heat noticed.

O- This beer is interesting. It has a nice smoke flavor but it starts to take over all the other flavors and gets a bit tough to finish the whole glass.

Had a glass at the Kalamazoo Beer Exchange. Man, this beer is out there - a hybrid wheat-amber-pale ale. And I'd say it's well made beer at that. It had a strong balance of spicy, Euro-like hops with smooth bready, toasty barley and wheat with a share of caramel. Despite weighing in at 6.1%, but this beer is very drinkable and quite interesting.

12 ounce bottle into a weizen glass.

Pours a medium copper, a little cloudy with a one finger head and some foamy cling. Smell is malt, yeast. some floral hops, caramel, a little musty grain. Taste also leads with malt, then caramel, a more distinct wheat flavor than the nose. Hop bitterness comes through on the back end. Smooth, creamy, good level of carbonation.

This is a very good example of the style. Lots of flavor and enjoyable to drink. Well worth a purchase.

Served in a pint glass at Small Bar-Division 05/03/12.

A: Served an extremely cloudy, dull amber color with one finger of dense white foam on top. Retention was decent with some random ropey lace left behind.

S: Bits of grassy hops and quite a bit of toasty/bready malt. This leaned pretty hard in the malty direction.

T: Pretty much as above with some spicy yeastiness during the middle that managed to keep things a little lively.

M: Drying roasted malt and a little peppery yeast.

O: I was hoping for something a little more "left field", but this was more middle of the road. Not bad in the least, just too safe.
