On-tap at the tap takeover at Beer Revolution in Edmonton.

This beer appears a rather dark orange brick tinted brown dishwater hue, with barely a half finger of thinly foamy, wispy off-white head, which leaves little beyond a few piddly specks of fizzy polka dot lace around the glass as it quickly wafts away.

It smells of tame orchard fruit - apple, pear, and a bit of peach - lightly smoky caramel malt, a mild oily nuttiness, some subtle leafy, earthy hops, and a gritty stony flintiness. The taste is meaty caramel malt, a slight, wet smokiness, some hard water stoniness, understated drupe fruit, and a pleasant earthy weedy hoppiness.

The bubbles are fairly underwhelming, in a game-saving sort of way, the body medium-light in weight, and actually quite smooth, as that lingering hint of smoke hangs aloft on the palate. It finishes on the dry side, the grainy caramel malt and unsweetened fruit exhibiting huge sway in the matter.

An interesting dunkel, as the smoke isn't quite expected as a given, so I have to sort of reset my metrics as such. After that, things work out ok enough, especially as the malt does well to reassert itself, even when I was expecting nothing of the sort (by that, I mean the Saskatcheweizen).
