Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Fans of rauchbier should definitely give this a try.. lighter style of rauchbier than you'll see from the Schlenkerla Märzen or Doppel.. more in the line of High & Mighty Fumata Bianca, but without the wheat character. Good fruit and subtle citrus up front with a great blast of smokiness on the finish. To lover of the style, or anyone who is doing a barbecue.. give this beer a try! Stays refreshing while still smokey.
