Questa è la birra che decisi di creare per celebrare il mio matrimonio, in omaggio alla mia sposa che ha sempre avuto una predilezione per le Rauch. La città di Bamberg con le sue tradizionali birre affumicate ci è rimasta nel cuore; l’abbiamo girata in lungo e in largo, abbiamo indugiato sui tavoli delle sue birrerie e ci siamo fermati tante volte a contemplare i rivoli d’acqua del fiume Regnitz.
Al matrimonio ci furono circa duecento invitati e 450 litri di birra a disposizione. Ricordo che il giovedì mi trovavo ancora a Tettnang a selezionare il luppolo del nuovo raccolto e mi dovevo sposare il sabato, per decorare la festa portai dieci piante intere di luppolo appena staccate dal campo. Invece del riso gli invitati ci lanciarono fiori di luppolo e nel taschino della giacca portai un rametto di luppolo in fiore. Quella del matrimonio fu a detta di molti la festa più bella di tutta la loro vita, fu una cosa davvero memorabile. Vendemmo la birra non consumata ai nostri clienti ai quali piacque così tanto che decidemmo di continuare a produrla e ora è entrata a far parte della famiglia.

I created this beer to celebrate my wedding and my bride who has always loved Rauch beers. The city of Bamberg is particularly dear to us. We ventured through its streets, indulged in its well known smoked beers and stood together contemplating the water ripples of the river Regnitz.
Being in Tettnang 2 days before the wedding to select the newly harvested hops, I brought back 10 freshly uprooted hop plants to decorate the wedding reception. Instead of the traditional rice tossing, the guests showered us with hop flowers. My weeding suit was garmented by a small hop blossom as well. With more than 200 guests and 450 liters of beer, many remember our celebration as one of the most memorable gatherings they have ever attended.
Selling the leftover beer to some clients was such a success that we decided to keep brewing it. It is now part of our beer family!

330 ml on tap at Birra+. Light brown, slightly hazy, with an average, creamy, moderately persistent off white head. Good lacing. Roasted and meaty nose, some bacon chips notes, smoky cheese (scamorza), a hint of campfire smoke, toffee and burnt caramel. Plesent sweetness, very balanced with just a hint of chocolate bitterness in the aftertaste. So easy to drink and surprisingly refreshing. Average carbonation, light to medium body, slightly creamy texture, Very nice.

Dans l’obscurité dans l’endroit, je perçois une robe plutôt cuivrée et légèrement voilée. Les faisceaux lumineux engendrés par l’éclairage discret du bar me permettent toutefois d’y voir plusieurs particules en suspension. La mousse, à priori très mince, ne tient pas du tout la route. Les céréales fumées, jumelées au caramel brûlé, constituent le bouquet tourbé de cette bière. Des traces de toffee nous laissent croire qu’un certain aspect sucré balancera le tout en bouche, ce qui est le cas. Ce côté sucré est la première chose qui se présente à notre palais, le fumé se pointant le bout du nez plutôt en fin de gorgée. Les saveurs de caramel et de toffee s’amplifient plus la bière tempère. Un peu trop pétillante à mon goût, j’aurais probablement apprécié une plus faible carbonatation pour bien cerner les saveurs, mais n’empêche que, dans le style, c’est assez bien fait.

Silvan7 (823) - Samarate, ITALY - SEP 1, 2014
On tap @ Eataly Birre in piazza Milano 2014. Aroma intenso, affumicato, quasi torbato, speziata di cannella e chiodo di garofano, prosciutto. Fruttato di castagna. Abboccata, acidula, tostata. Piacevole mix di sapori contrastanti. Gusto non troppo intenso comparato alle Rauch di Bamberga. Poco amara sebbene luppolata. Carbonatazione gentile, meno corposa di quello che ci si aspetterebbe, poco calda. Equilibrata ed armonica.

Bouteille de forme bizarroïde de 330ml. Une robe trouble brune orange à la limite du marécage. Une mousse épaisse trône. Un nez légèrement fumé avec des notes de sirop d’érable.Une bouche simple aux saveurs amères, sèche, fumé mais loin d’être agressant.

Interesting and with a balanced smoke flavour. But it is lacking a real punch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Clear amber red beer with a small beige head. Aroma is smokey with notes of caramel, herbs and charcuterie. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel, grains, smoked malt and toffee. A bit thin bodied but balanced.

Bottle from systembolaget. Smell is meaty and smokey. Pours clear brown or amber with a small white head. Taste is smokey and sweet, however a bit bland and watery. Palate is a bit oily and very simple. Overall a decent beer at best, a bit boring but smokey enough if you like this type of beer,

Very nice Rauchbeer - well balanced, with a subtle not to dominating Rauch-edge, amber, hazy, nice head, good carbonation, not my everyday beer - but still worth to go for.
