COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stilbeschreibung: Das Rauchbier hat seinen Ursprung im oberfränkischen Bamberg. Das Malz, das man für diesen Biertyp verwendet, wird über einem offenen Buchenfeuer gedarrt und erhält so seinen typischen Geschmack. Besonderheiten: Das klassische Rauchbier weist einen sehr dominanten Rauchgeschmack auf, der oft als zu dominant empfunden wird. Roog, das Rauchweizen der BraufactuM Kollektion, hat die Rauchnote entschärft, ohne dem Bier jedoch die Rauchbier-typischen Charakteristika zu nehmen. Der Dreiklang aus Rauch- und Weizenbier sowie Spezialmalzaromen ist harmonisch abgestimmt. Verkostungsnotiz: Rotbraune Farbe, trüb, mittlere Schaumbildung. Legt einen kapriziösen, sehr individuellen Auftritt hin: Die Andeutung von Orangenzesten und Banane wird überlagert von Räuchernoten wie von Wacholderschinken, die wiederum gemildert werden durch gebrannte Mandeln. Eine leise Bitterkeit hallt nach.

Hazy brown color and big creamy head. Distinctive aroma of smoke, some malt. Taste, again, smoke, a bit of spice. Really good one.

RhetoricalAns (304) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2014
Murky deep muddy brown. a couple fingers of bubbly wet sand head. Full bodied but very smooth. Aroma comes across with some caramel malt and malt at first, the smoked profile comes a bit later. Taste has the smoke and wood flavours much more up front.

yngwie (13801) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle. It pours a hazy amber body under a big, creamy, beige head. There’s a pleasant, subtle smoke in the aroma, with banana, cloves and bubblegum blending nicely. The flavor has some bitterness in the finish, with a touch of caramel and the same weissbier things found in the aroma. Full body, pleasant carbonation. Lasting finish. Quite lovely this one. Would like to have more. 141003

jtclockwork (8595) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark brown tan head. Nose/taste of smoked caramel, smoked wheat, banana, coriander and touch of smoky meat. Lighter medium body.

rotaman14 (111) - Potsdam, GERMANY - SEP 25, 2014
Pours dark brown, with an amber/reddish touch. Medium beige head. Almonds on the nose, along some banana, caramel and a faint notion of smoke. The alcohol is warming, but well hidden. Taste of caramel and almonds evolves into banana and spice. Can’t really taste the smoke. Overall not bad, but too expensive for what it is.

Spab (2459) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
On tap at the beerbistro. Pours a dark orangey brown with average-sized eggshell-coloured head. Aroma is roasty/smoky with banana, nuts, candied fruit and brown sugar. Flavour is modestly roasty/smoky, candied banana, brown sugar, some dark fruits and light nuttiness. Average plus body. Nice.

bhensonb (11260) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Capped 750 from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pour looks brown, but against very strong light it’s copper/orange. Creamy tan head. Aroma of smoke and wheat. Med body or nearly. Flavor is smoky wheat. There’s a roasty malt aspect, but it’s a sort of one hit wonder. Smoky. Not that that’s a bad thing. :)
