Like Freigeist Abraxas, itís 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 GŲller in Zeil (330 ml bottle).

Cloudy yellow pour with a thin white head. Pleasant aroma of smoke, wheat, citrus and mild sourness. The lactic sourness is more present in the flavor than in the aroma, itís joined by smoke, citrus and wheat, the flavor is very sharp and refreshing. The body is bigger than what I expect from a Berliner Weisse, although itís not too heavy, the texture is a bit oily and the carbonation is lively. This might not be the best of the style, but itís definitely worth a try and I wouldnít mind buying this again.

Bottle. Clear golden body, medium white dense head with good retention, poor lacing. Aroma of smoked mackerel, salt, leather and grains. Taste of hot smoked fish, grains, green grapes and apples. Lovely.

Draft 8 oz pour at No Anchor. Pours a shiny golden orange with a full cover foam head. How this isnít classified as a smoked beer, I couldnít tell you. Itís as obvious as it gets, as far a Iím concerned. Smoked flavor from beginning to end. Hard to pick up any other detail. Maybe a salted background. Not a bad beer, but as a gose? I have no idea whatís going on here.

Tap at La Fine Mousse, 18th October 16. Pours straw coloured some haze. Aroma is sour and smoke. Taste is light, slightly sour, great smokey lemon sherbet, slight acidic. Really nice and different.

Skarecrow (271) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 13, 2016
1 pint bottle. Subdued smoky aroma. Light honey amber color with no head to speak of but plenty of effervescence. Initial smoky taste (which lingers) gives way to a delicate salty/sour finish. Interesting.

Pdubyah (641) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 24, 2016
Stunning. Get one. Get two. Get in! This is smokey on opening, smokey in the glass and smokey in the mouth, with softness from the malt and a sharp bitter but not over the top finish. Itís just a good beer .

KansaiBeerLvrs (4663) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 6, 2016
Freigeist Abraxxxas 6% 6$ bottle from the LCBO. A clear orange gold with an intensely smokey ham and sweet pear aroma. Medium bodied with a semi-sweet mouthfeel. The taste is smokey, sweet honey-glazed ham with pear. Delicious.

alexsdad06 (9140) - Ohio, USA - SEP 5, 2016
500 ml bottle from the Party Source. Pours a hazy yellow gold color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have smoked grainy malts, bread, lemon citrus, salt, lactic sour notes, strange yet interesting beer.

Hammy78 (961) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2016
Bottle from the University Plaza LCBO. Pours a cloudy golden colour, big foamy white head, spotty lace. Smells, sweet caramel, malt, also a little smokey. Tastes not quite what I imagined, no sour or tartness or salt. Tastes more like a burn banana, and sweet.
