An interesting Berliner-style wheat ale that's brewed with beechwood smoked malt and aged on peach purée, this offers a lot of different aromas, flavors and sensations—campfire smoke, sweet peach and tart lactic acid—and each one seems to be the dominating characteristic at varying times. Aromas of sweet smoke, ripe stone fruit, pineapple, barnyard hay and lemony citrus all abound on the nose and continue through to the tart palate in waves of attack—first extremely tart acidity, then lean to ripe fruit, followed lastly by smoky sensations and citrus pith.
