    Golden yellow pour, with a thin lifeless head and some spotty lacing. Lightly smoked wheat with a touch of minor fruitiness. Perhaps a touch of floral hops to help balance, but this is a lightly malt forward brew. Crisp and clean, nice to drink. Thanks Lou for this beer, and the red tape around the bottle made me smile.

    A Tennessee High Tax Ale: Nice touch with actual red tape around the cap that must be removed before opening. Light hazed straw yellow pour, short tight white head, some lacing. Light smoked wheat aroma and initial taste, malty and lightly sweet malts, hint of bananas, light earthy hops, a touch gritty mouthfeel. Very easy to drink with a slight smoky linger especially when it warms a bit. Interesting beer, great cause, nice collaboration.
