This is a historic Polish style-session beer made with oak smoked wheat. Too curiosity provoking to pass up!

It poured a cloudy golden color with tightly laced foam atop. It had a light, barely perceptible smoke aroma to it. The light smokiness carries over to the flavor with a surprising tartness. It’s lemony and crisp with a wheated smoothness. Overall just an interesting, complexly flavored, curious beer. Surprisingly filling too—its effervescence which kept it light also unexpectedly inflated my belly!

In some ways it reminds me of a Berliner weiss (a la Bell’s Oarsman) with a similar tart/lactic souring and light/crisp/refreshing flavor, not to mention the low ABV—and minus the smoke nuances, of course. Love it or hate it I imagine you’ll find this brew hard to forget.
