I like it when bottles come w/ labels written only in the original language like you this one. You can really taste the authenticity it adds. The particular bottle of this I got had apparently been stored upside down for some length of time because there was a yeast cake formed on the cap rather than the bottom of the bottle like you’d expect. I opened it over the sink for caution’s sake but there were no problems whatever. It pours a cloudy orange color w/ a bit of a raspberry red hue. The head is of large bubbles and is quickly dissipating. The nose is rather tart and fruity, a bit of pineapple and berries, plus a warm spice cake overtone. The carbonation is sharp and bracing which seems to sort of clash w/ an earthy bitterness. The carbonation masks most flavors but from what I can tell this is slightly tart and medium dry. It is not a bad beer but it’s just a little out of whack texture-wise and that is preventing me from enjoying it fully. Oh well.

12 oz green bottle. Pours a murky orangeish brown. It is pretty carbonated and produces a large off white head that dissipates with some decent lacing. The smell of this one is intense. It has a pinch of skunk but not too much. There is a huge barnyard funk going on with it, it smells a lot like brett. There is some underlying fruitiness as well. But mostly it is a bretty beast. The taste has a good amount of brett as well. There is some fruitiness as well. But the main flavor is a nice malty smokiness with hints of cocoa. Some people say the Bamberger Rauchbiere have hints of bacon, I would say this one has more of it though it is faint. The mouthfeel is good, slightly creamy. Overall it is a quirky but good beer.

MrChopin (3575) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2011
translucent tan, beige thin white ring. Lots of old smoke, like the revolutionary war exhibits you see in 7th grade, or the elephants and hay at the zoo. embedded or something. also light tea. Flavor is smokier, fresher, 1943 cockpit mixed with a strong citrus, particularly in finish, almost biting and thinning. Light smoke through, chalky flaky body. Decent, nice smoke, tale of two centuries I guess.

EricE (1368) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Orange pour with a thin tan head. Dirty smoke aroma, like burning grass and hay. Sweet flavor. Smoke flavor is better than suggested by the nose. Very meaty with a bitter hop finish. Smoke lingers in the throat.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Massively meaty nose, sweet smoke. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter, moderately smoke, some honey and apple, lots of floral hops. Strange, but good.

obguthr (4430) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Fascinating aroma of caramel apples, thistle, and hay. Cloudy dark amber, thick yellow head, nice lacing. Dry, lightly toasted malt, almost smoky, grainy. Rye malt possibly. A touch chlorophenolic. Finishes with smoked wheat. Flawed, but probably a great beer when it’s on. It’s certainly distinctive and unique.

Coxy (41) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2011
What a superb surprise find of a beer. Lovely sweet, slightly yeasty, woody, yet smokey aroma. Bright orange/amber colour and foamy off white haed. The taste isn’t overpowering with the 6.5% but it’s balanced mix of slight fruit with the rustic smoke tinge. An interesting but great beer that I will be having again.

Lubiere (10846) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2010
An orange amber ale with a thin creamy off white head, In aroma, fusel wood extract, a bit smokey and smooth. In mouth, a lightly sweet malt with good smokeyness, nice, if a bit too oily in mouthfeel. On tap at ChurchKey DC, Sept. 16 2010.
