COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like Freigeist Abraxas, it’s also inspired by the style Lichtenhainer, but this version is stronger (6% alc.) and contains more lactic sourness. Brewed until 2012 at Braustelle (375 ml bottle), from 2013 at Göller in Zeil (330 ml bottle).

(Many thanks to Sammy for the trade.) Funk, earthiness, and hints of smoke comprise the aroma. Pours a cloudy orange with a thin, quickly disapearing white head and no lacing. The taste is tart. Citrus followed by a smooth pleasing smokiness. A very satisfying balance of flavors. There is also a lemon/grain aftertaste present. Medium-light body and mild carbonation. Overall, very enjoyable!

Bright lemon aromas and a hint of smoke. Very light body with a creamy mouth feel with almost no carbonation. The taste is sweet and moderately tart. The lactic acid dominates the flavor but smokiness sneaks in at the end.

GBZ59 (1182) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - SEP 8, 2013
Botella de 330ml. Copa Flauta de pie largo. Color latón pálido y apariencia turbia. Espuma blanca, corona tupida con bastante buena retención que permanece como un persistente capa en la superficie. Gentil acidez, que recuerda al vino, seguida por leve azucarado y notas de pan. Cuerpo ligero/medio. Carbonatación moderada aunque chispeante en el paladar. Textura densa. Astringencia cítrica en el intermedio redondeada por notas de fruta agria - manzanas y peras verdes. Bajo amargor. Final prolongado y ácido con sutil lúpulo en el retrogusto. Refrescante y de muy fácil asimilación. 330ml bottle. Footed Flute glass. Pale brass, foggy appearance. White froth, close crown. Fairly good retention. Lasting thin layer on top. Gentle acidic at first -wine like- followed by slight sugar & bready notes. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation but funny palate. Oily texture. Citric astringency in the middle rounded by sour fruity notes - green pears & apples. Low bitterness. Long acidic finish & subtle hops on the aftertaste. Refreshing & easy

Enjoyed at the 4de Gents Bierfestival, 2013. The bottle pours with an opaque gold to copper body that supports a light tan head of foam. The modest aroma offers up red apples, pears and some sweet sugary maltiness. The taste delivers some grainy sour mash like malts to go along with lemon and lime and soured wheat husks. Pretty cool. Beyond those notes I get a light smokiness too. I like it. It’s crisp and fresh and refreshing.

Bouteille @ 4de Gentse Bierfestival. Orangée, col blanc léger. Arôme est léger grains, fruité moyen le tout gardant ce bouquet trčs allemand et oscillant sur une Berline Weisse. Palais offre un bouquet légčrement fumé sur qcq notes aigres. Houblonné citronné avec un profil restant axé sur les grains. Sour wheath & mash / dręche for sur les grains, qui au final n’est franchement pas mal.

_angst_ (3235) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2013
330 ml bottle bought @ bierkompass.de. Pours hazy golden with a frothy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving some soapy trace on the glass. Smell is sour and smokey with crackers, lemon juice, smoked charcuteries, charred wood. unflavoured yoghurt, wood and hints of salty soy sauce. Taste is sour, smokey, lactic and tiny salty with crackers, smoked ham, hay, unflavoured yoghurt, lemon juice, burnt wood, dry soil, lemon zest, orange zest and hints of banana bread. Mouthfeel is round, dry, tiny mouth-puckering and medium bodied. Finish is sour with crackers, smoked meats, burnt wood, hay, dry soil, lemon juice, grapefruit juice and unflavoured yoghurt. Much much better than its lighter little brother.
