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!

Jorn69 (842) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2014
@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (32:-). Rökiga toner, maltighet, sötma och karamell, rökta charkuterier, medelfyllig, något tunn i smaken. Torr, besk och rökig avslutning.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a white head, no retention. Sweet malt and soft smoke in aroma. Taste is quite soft as well, smoke, wood, sweet malt, slightly peppery/spicy. Medium body, medium carbonation. Short herbal after taste.
Well balanced but not enough punch for my smoked beer needs.

Lilja (1550) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2014
Smak och doft av humle, malt, torv, aska, toner av tjära, jäst, örter. Fruktig, frisk, lagom sötma och framförallt en fin ton av rök som ramar in de andra smakerna. En fin rököl helt i min smak.

Nice golden to ref color with thin white head. Smells smokey and creamy chocolate. The taste is according the aroma and quite soft on the palate. Only concern is why do weak am alcohol? ??

Franzen (290) - SWEDEN - APR 5, 2014
Some leather and campfire like smoke in the aroma with hints of chocolate.
Clear orange with minimal head
Begins sweet with a mild interlude of smoke with a pretty watery finish
Light body, low carbonation and watery texture
Pretty boring

MSBrindbergs (230) - Solna, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2014
Flaska från SB. Rödbrun grumlig vätska med mycket lite skum. Doftar rök och tjära. Man tänker på de klassiska pastillerna från finlandsfärjan. Det första jag tänker på är den avslagna smaken som dock lämnar en rökig efterton. Ganska klen i kroppen, en viss beska dröjer sig. Doften är det som sticker ut!

MrHult (183) - SWEDEN - APR 5, 2014
Flaska från Systembolaget. Mörkt kopparfärgad vätska med lågt ljust skum. Doftar kärpastiller å rök. Känslan är blaskig lager med rökig smak som kommer efter en stund. Förväntade mig större smak men den är god.
