Edinburgh Beer Factory - Bunk! - Smokey Wheat - 5%
Our BUNK! series takes underrated beer styles and re-presents them to a new audience. Inspired by David Bowie’s Starman, this is our ‘hazy cosmic jive’. Typical of a German-style Hefeweizen, the look is a hazy golden-orange, and the nose is a decidedly wheaty-banana. But rising through the wheatiness, is a complex, rich smokiness reminiscent of an Islay whisky.
The taste is crisp and creamy, as sweet banana notes are undercut by the subtle peated smokiness. A satisfying summer thirst quencher, it pairs well with seafood and antipasti.
Smoky Wheat has been named World’s Best Smoked Beer at the World Beer Awards 2018!
