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!

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.

Slightly smoky aroma with some malt. Smoky flavor but it is not at all hard but fairly moderate, I think with a hint of hops. Fills the mouth front with just enough bitterness with a weak moment. Feels almost like the beer is more refreshing. But also easy to drink. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

mikeyo1 (347) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle @ home. Pours amber with very little haziness and a small off-white head. Aroma is slightly sweet with a smoke character consisting of delicate metworst, peat, leather and ham, balanced by a toasty and grainy maltiness and some birch and fruits in the background. Taste has similar smokiness along with red fruits, herbs, toast, dry wood and notes of toffee. It finishes with a light bitterness and an interesting dry and slightly tart leather- & grain-like mouth feel with. Low carbonation.

Vignale (2340) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2014
Flaska från SB. Bärnsetnsfärgad, klar, lågt skum. Lätt rökig doft med torv, läder och lättrökta charkuterier med söt malt i bakgrunden. Välbalanserad, lätt rökig, fin men lätt kropp för stilen med välavvägd sötma, lätt beska. Torv, läder, textilplåster och kolbakat bröd. Ett lätt välbalanserat rököl som är lätt att kombinera med mat och dricka flera av. Riktigt gott.
