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).

Draft at Local 44 in Philly. Hazy orange-brown, creamy tan head, nice lacing. Smoky tart aroma with light lactic, soapy notes. Flavor is bacon, smoke, tart green apple. Quite dry and refreshing, if weird!

TXBadger (1793) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Had at a share; pours a slightly hazy golden color with fizzy head. Smoke, citrus, and tartness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Normally, I’m not a fan of smoked beer, but this is pretty decent.

Ragnampiza (673) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAY 22, 2014
330 ml bottle from Les Vignerons, served in a goblet glass. Sunrise orange, pretty hazy, with a small and creamy white head. Fruity aroma upfront (different kinds of red and black berries), then some leather and wood notes, and lastly just a hint of ash and campfire smoke. Sharp and lemony acidic edge in the mouth, nice level of sourness without being too much, quite sweet but very refreshing and easy too drink. Fruity, moderately bitter and slightly yeasty aftertaste. Average to lively carbonation, light to medium body, creamy texture. Having zero experience with these types of beer, I’m pleasently surprised. Very enjoyable.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2014
Hazy gold colored body. Low dirty white head. Subtle smoke and doughy wheat malts aroma, with a certain fruity acidic twist. Soft mouthfeel, light body. Mild wheaty malt base. Fine fruit tones, with an underlying lactic sourness. Finish dry with vague smoke tones. Good drinkability. Unusual and elegant. [Shared bottle at larsga’s, 20.08.13]

Leicht trübes kupferfarbenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch nach Citrus, Kraut, Gewürze, genauso ist auch der Geschmack.

tgncc (2998) - Bellmore, New York, USA - APR 30, 2014
First Lichtenheiner. The aroma is caramel, light smoke, lemon. The appearance is hazy copper, white head. The flavor is sour lemon, smoked malts, caramel. Really intriguing. The finish is sour citrus, smoke. Medium in body. Really cool.

kramer (5348) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body under a large foamy off-white head that left some nice lacing. The nose is slightly sour and funky with some nice campfire smoke, wheat, and some yeastiness. The flavor is rather smoke-forward, much more than was expected. Smoky from front to back with just a light almost citrusy twang from the yeast and the sour mash. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering smoky finish. Pretty nice beer, and a fairly hard to find style.

CapFlu (4725) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 15, 2014
Quick dissipating white head atop a clear, lively gold body. Nose is peat and a sweet white wine. Flavour is surprisingly tart, some lime, tart apple juice and lingering smoke. Interesting blend of tart and jerky.
