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).

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.

nealblind (761) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - OCT 18, 2013
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.

krumbum (521) - truckee, California, USA - OCT 14, 2013
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 (779) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
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.

BMMillsy (1368) - Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Pours from the bottle cloudy grainy hazy golden with a one finger white head. Aroma is weird! Smokey wheat and spice, yeast funk. Flavor is fruited smoked bacon, apple, hint of yeast and spice. A smoked brew for sure. Light medium body with plenty of carbonation. Lingering smoke. This is weird. Not bad, but a strange combo of light weisse and dark smoke.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Light amber-ish, hazy pour. Minimal carbonation. Subtle hints of ash, tart apple and sour wheat layers, with a mild yeast quality. Hints of sweet wheat, banana/fruit and more ash as the beer warms, though seems to finish dry. Best chilled, not cold. Delicate, simple and refreshing overall. Some age in bottle might increase and benefit a desired sourness. Nice. Enjoyable. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

MaBeer1972 (1312) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 5, 2013
On tap at Armsby Abbey. Unique smoky aroma and flavors with a distinct sourness. Light amber with minimal head. Served in a tulip. Very nice find!

Inbreak (2130) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 16.06.2013, tap @ Alewife Queens:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet, smoked light malts, caramel, grass, toffee, almonds. Taste is slightly dry sour-ish, smoked light malts, grass, caramel, chalk, hay, toffee, nuts. Medium bitterness. Nice one.
