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).

radagast83 (4409) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Draft at Churchkey. Poured a cloudy yellow color, with a small very white head. Aroma was some lemony citrus notes. Flavor had some floral notes, other characters, some salt character to it, unrefined grain character. Enjoyable enough.

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Poured into a perfect pint. 4.0 A: Murky dark yellow brown color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average and a decent sized ring of lacing is left. 4.0 S: Good balance between the base and the smoke. The smoke offers a nice complementary campfire vibe. Mild lemony tartness from the base along with neutral wheat and a light peppery spiciness. Unique to me and quite pleasant. 4.0 T: Again there is great interplay between the base and the smoke. Tart lemon with campfire smoke straight up works. Hay, wheat, peppery spice, light barn funk. 3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Good here, but I like a bit more creaminess in the style. 4.0 D: Well rounded tasty brew. This is an instance in which combining two things I like if a huge success.

Aroma of slight smoke, salt, lactic notes, honey. Appearance is light gold with fluffy white head. Flavor of light smoke up front, lightly lactic and tangy in the finish. Palate is light, creamy and flat. Tasty.

kuphish (380) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle from EithCubes. Hazy, golden orange body with a lasting, fluffy white head. Light sourness and wheat in the nose. Reminds of a Beriner Weiße. Light, fruity esters and a strangely pleasant, metallic hint from the smoke. Citric tartness pops through upon the first sip. Lovely, light smoke and some grainy malt. A little sweet orange peel is there, too. Medium body with medium carbonation. Tartness is coating and lingering on the tongue. Overall a very tasty beer and the smoke is integrated beautifully. I’m a fan.

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Got served this one by mistake at Brouwer’s Sour Fest 2013. Cloudy, cloudy orange. This is like a smoked beer from Schlenkerla with a squirt of a gueuze in it. Smoke comes through and dominates the minimal lactic notes. Not too impressed by this one.

Theydon_Bois (7904) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle at Braustelle, Ehrenfeld Koln, 27/04/13. Hazed golden amber with a thin white head that clears to a film. Nose is apple sauce, light spice, soap, grass, light smoke. Taste comprises sour apples, light sugar, caramel, toffee apple, tarte orchard fruit, malts. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry finish. Ok but not quite tarte enough for a gose.

sloshgator (399) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Freigeist Abraxxxas is a unique and refreshing German beer. It is officially listed as a Lichtenhainer style. Abraxxxas has a clear but darker amber color with a white head. Aroma is lightly fruit -- kind of like a lemon. Taste is well balanced mix of lemony fruit, wheat and yeast with a touch of sourness (no pucker factor.) Finish is clean with no aftertaste. Very enjoyable. Give Freigeist Abraxxxas a try if you find it; you don’t come across this style very often (at least in the US.)
