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 clear dark golden, red tint, with a small light beige-orange cap showing some retention and lacing. wood smoked lightly spicy and nutty maltiness, appreciable and welcomed caramel, red fruitiness imparting fruity berries with just a touch of their acidity, meaty without being bacony, peppery and grassy. light carbonation, light body, balanced woodsy-astringent-smoky-peppery-grassy finish. enjoyable.

Rauch poco particolare dal forte aroma affumicato che non dispiace ma dal gusto poco deciso! Non ai livelli di alle smoked da me provate in passato. Passabile!

Dark amber body with a small offwhite head. Aroma of sweet plums and light smoky, taste of caramel, dark malts, raisins and subtle smoke hints. A little light on the smoke to be honest. Finish is bitter and fruity, making an enjoyable, though still a bit boring beer.

Bottiglia, premetto che questa è la mia prima smoked quindi non posso fare dei paragoni, nel bicchiere si presenta con un colore ambrato scuro con una schiuma fine e poco persistente. Aroma affumicato, legno bruciato e malto tostato. In bocca si sente molto il malto seguito dall’affumicatura che non è mai fastidiosa. Per essere la mia prima smoked devo dire che non è male

Antoineke (1) - LYON, FRANCE - SEP 24, 2014 does not count
bière isssue de céréales fumée, qu’on retrouve fortement au nez et en bouche. Presque tourbée, pas de mousse, dans un registre désaltérant. Un goût légèrement acide me dérange un peu. Perso je n’aime pas cette bière.

Bottle @Mondial de la bière. An amber brown beer with low head. Nose is slightly smoked, aroma is on caramel and light smoked notes associated with seals horse notes, leather. Peppery finish, a shy version of smoked beer.

Smoked salmon and smoked mackerel, that’s a new one! Instead of the usual meaty aroma profile with sausages and the like, the smokey notes in this one actuarially reminds me more of smoked, salty fish. This isn’t as fishy as it sounds, these notes actually makes the aroma far crisper than the heavy meaty aromas of some smoked beers. I don’t get any smoked fish in the flavour, but I guess thats a very good thing. Instead there is a pronounced hoppy fruitiness that plays very well with the gentle smoke. The taste is light to moderate sweet and the finish is light bitter. It is smooth on the palate with a moderate carbonation. In the glass it is hazy with a medium amber colour and a very large, creamy, off-white head. A very nice and different smoked.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 3 months before BB date, form Systembolaget Gårda, Göteborg]

Belle bouteille qui crache un liquide brun laid sur lequel flotte une mousse qui semble être malade. Le nez s’ exprime en fumée de bois et en caramel. Simple ou inintéressant, c’est selon. En bouche, rien de tonitruant ou d’impressionnant. Légers malts et fumée sans complexité ou sans complexe. Sur le palais, un corps léger et pétillant qui passe comme de l’eau. Une finale courte et sans impact. Peu stimulant.
