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).

Sweet, sour, and lightly smokey. Looks like a Berliner, with a light frothy head. Tastes sour, lightly malty, and lightly peaty on the finish. Berliner, year malty and peaty in the finish. Interesting

Pailhead (4413) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of smoke, light clove, banana, and a hint of citrus. It pours a cloudy orange with a one finger off-white head that eventually fades to a thin film outlined by a soapy ring. There is some sporadic thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus that is quickly followed by moderate smoke. The finish has moderate sour lemon. It’s light bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, I really didn’t see this coming. Considering I don’t like sour and roasty, I’m surprised sour and smoke works so well for me. I wish I bought more.

solidfunk (2999) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Nice little beer. Pours cloudy yellow with good head and lacing. Nice smoked aroma with some bretta and funk. Bitter slightly burnt finish, but not overbearing on rauch. I can find no fault with this - generally well put together.

MrChopin (2927) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 13, 2013
hazy orange gold, thin fizzy white ring. Dusty smoke nose, heavy wheat with considerable ester, light sour with heavy spritz lemon. Flavor is heavy lemon candy followed by light smoke, fatty and oily slickness. Smoke is schlenkerla quality, wished for more. Balanced throughout if a little sweet, no biting acids thankfully despite variety. Well done.

nellycale (171) - Caledonia, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2013
500 ml bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a slightly hazy copper with a white head of velvety foam, good sheets of lacing and retention as well. Aroma is doughy and a touch smoky. Some clove and cardamom esters as well. The doughy, estery, smoke come through in the taste, along with a hearty sourness kickng in and dominating. Spritzy carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle from Discount Liquor Milwaukee. Pours a hazy amber color with a white head. Aroma is lemon, wheat, a little smokey, maybe a touch of yeast. Medium on the palate with lively carbonation. Flavor is mostly sweet, but a touch of lactic sourness, smokey, wheat, lemon, with a light smokey finish. Very interesting.
