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!

SamTheBarrel (417) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2014
330ml shaped like a short bodied champagne style brown bottle, with a nicely designed Italian countryside themed label. Pours a clear sierra brown with a small beige head that reduced quickly, leaving no lacing. Aroma is dominated by smoked charcuteries with a hint of roasted malts and tar. Flavour of smoked charcuteries, tar, roasted malts and caramel. Taste is light sweet and light-medium bitter. Palate is medium-light bodied, slightly oily texture and soft carbonation. Overall a good Rauch beer, would have liked it a little stronger and fuller bodied.

TychoJames (107) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2014
Flaska från systembolaget. Orange vätska med sparsamt vitt skum. Rökig doft som drar åt blött papper, prickig korv och anis. I smaken känns en tydligare rökighet. Tjära och torv. Anar ändå en viss fruktighet i eftersmaken

Garlic_of_Doom (448) - SWEDEN - APR 5, 2014
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 (1585) - 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.
