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!

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.

Zekada (427) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2014
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.

Flaska hos kompis. Brunrödfärgad vätska. Stor doft av tjärad båt. Smak i bra balans mellan maltsötma och beska. Lite vattnigt avlut.

Bottle (330 ml). Slightly hazy copper/brown with a small beige head and little lacing. Aroma is of wood and meat smoke, but it’s not overwhelming. There’s also light fruity notes and hints of caramel. Taste is also gently smoked with wood, caramel and light fruitiness. Body is medium, but maybe a tad light for the style. Moderate carbonation. The smoke is lasting in the aftertaste, but it’s quite subtle. Good balance. Smoke is well integrated. Body is a tad light, but it helps the drinkability. Very good beer!

Pours a nice copper with a thin offwhite head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of smoke, really pleasant. Smokiness is not over the top and just like a distant memory of a fireplace. Taste is lightly sweet, smoky as well and finishes on some light metallic notes. Caramel and fruits hide behind that smoke screen. Body is light to medium, maybe lacking a little, and carbonation is moderate. There is a slight acidity that isn’t unwelcome and makes for a really drinkable product. Overall a nice smoked beer, there are betters but this one stands on its own.
