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).

33cl bottle into tulip. Lille. Appearance: cloudy orange/brown color. Mininimal white head. Aroma: sour, smoked meat, citrus Taste: mostly tart. Upfront there is mostly sourness, but it slowly evolves into smokey flavor. Like drinking lemonade and eating a sausage. Palate: medium body, slick texture, shortish finish. Overall: a real interest beer. Flavor like I have never had before. The smokiness is no like peat, but like meat. A nice texture. A good beer to try.

D’une belle couleur abricot et voilée, ayant une mousse typique qui se résorbe en disparaissant pratiquement au complet. En secouant le tout, ça reprend forme. Des arômes acidulés, citronnés, fumés et de pierres mouillées en émanent. Un mélange de levures sauvages et de paraffine forment un tout olfactif, où l’on perçoit parfois les unes, parfois l’autre. Des saveurs minérales et acides frappent fort et s’évanouissent aussitôt. En second violon, les levures sauvages semblent plastifiées. Elle doit être sûrement plus intéressante fraîchement brassée. Elle réussi à surprendre. (Emb. fév.’12 MA fév.’13 et bue en nov. ’13) (883-071113)

Fascinating beer, really a strange beast. Moderate smokiness, comparable to some lighter rauchbiers, but with the lemonade light tartness of a berliner weisse. Hard to drink a lot of, but really quite a cool beer.

Bottle. Hazy gold, light smoke. Interesting blend - smoke and sourness. Tart, the smoke makes this a more complex beer.

Pours gold into a weizen. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Sour smoke aromas. Smoke upfront turning to a dry sour dusty grape front to back.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2014 Orange cider pour no head. Aroma of smoked pears leather. Tastes like tart apples strong smoke woody faint malty wheat background. Acidic dry vinous palate. Really nice to have a lighter sour type beer with strong smoke flavor.

This was a peated version. cloudy golden orange. Smells of wet dough. Great that flavor that turns to band aids. Nice sour after taste.

JBPortland (1374) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 14, 2013
From 10/13 notes. 500ml bottle pours red brown into tulip with almost no head. Nose is apple, pear. Mouthfeel is sharp tartness on the front of the palette, very low carbonation. Taste is tart musty apple, smokey malt. Finish is smokey, tart, pear. Lack of carbonation took away some enjoyability. OK.

Tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Deep amber pour with a thin white head. The aroma is softly smoky and a little bit of light sourness and a bit of soft fruitiness. There’s a bit of salty character and a bit of lingering oak smoke character. A touch of wheatiness. Really interesting brew.
