I’m not normally a fan of smoked anything but have recently seen a few posts on Twitter for smoked Hefe’s. I figured I’d try in good time…Lo & behold My Guy brought home this one by Gigantic Brewing (another PDX fave) the other day!
First sip was a cautious one but the smoke taste was so slight as to be just a hint really. I’m glad. Any stronger and it would have drowned out the characteristics of hefeweizens that I love. Still the heady clove and banana aroma greeted me and a faint smoke lick at the end of each sip. This was tasty & original; glad I switched things up a little!
