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).

weihenweizen (1732) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Refrigerated 0.5 L brown bottle poured into a La Trappe glass (closest I had to a bowl). Pours light amber with small white head which dissapates quickly. Medium body, medium carbonation, and light tart aroma. Taste is tart malt, some smoke (mostly pepperoni), and mild grain. Interesting and pretty good, but nothing really special.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 23, 2013
500mL Bottle, purchased in San Diego. Light smoked meat aroma, paired with some of that Hefe banana peel. At first, this is ass-kicking, thirst quenching, complex and rounded. As it warms, the wheat takes over with some rubberiness, the lacto gets a little languid, and the smoke fades into the background. I love the juicyfruit yeast quench finish and the breadth of the flavor profile, but I want a little more levity, bubbliness and a bit more sour tang. Still, worth trying.

3fourths (8027) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy golden wheat body with a fine and lasting white head. Lemon and lime rind and pith, sour mash wheat, faint lactic acid nose. Yeast, muddy, musty, mild sweet banana, lightly smoked wheat, medium sulfur / dried egg shell. Medium body, medium sweetness, effervescent and frothy with zesty acidity on a creamy and smooth wheat body. Chalky banana SweetTarts. Almost nondescript smoke character. lightly meaty and smoky Hefeweizen meets berliner weisse with an orange slice in your glass and a small banana slice too because we’re fancy.

nsquishee (598) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - JUL 14, 2013
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 (4809) - 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.
