A smoked wheat beer?
That’s about the size of it.
Pouring a dark brown with a lovely big foamy head, the smell is smoky fruit chocolate.
This won’t be to everyone’s liking and it’s a rather complex beer with all sorts of things going on.
First there’s a fried banana base that’s toffee rich and unctuous, providing a big strong backbone that’s speckled with lots of cloves and black peppercorns.
You get a lovely soft and rather thick feeling on your tongue along with lots of nice crisp crunchy hops full of elderflower, some light citrus bitterness and just a hint of orange juice.
Floating about over all this is the beechwood smoke that hangs around like a delicious mist, infusing everything with a warm woodiness that if you like Rauchbier, you’ll find absolutely delightful.
Oh, and by the way, I had this with hotdogs and it complemented them brilliantly.
