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).

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - APR 19, 2013
Pours hazy gold with a white head. Smells like a bamberg smoked beer. Tastes slightly tarte and minerally with a smoky finish. I am happy to see gose separated out, but why lump it in with lichtenhainer and grodziskie?

Vighals (1422) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - DEC 24, 2014
Lys brun tåkete med lavt hvitt skum. Eple, korn og noe bærlukt. Søt bær og karamell og noe syrlig smak. Røyklukten og smaken er jo der også. Kort. Lite kullsyre

hopscotch (9558) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle... Pours hazy and orange with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The subtle aroma furnishes cereal grains, smoked malts and a light ration of acidity. Medium-bodied with a 2%-milk mouthfeel and kicked-back carbonation. The flavor is grainy and bready with minerals and even less acidity than the nose hinted at. Crisp, minerally finish. The smoky component is non-existent in the flavor and finish. Cleanly brewed though.

Nische (900) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2014
Hazy golden pour with tan head. Light tart fruit, hints of smoke and roasted malt aromas. Flavors follow, smoke is more influential on the finish.

Bottle. Somewhat hazy pale golden beer with a small offwhite head. Smoked bread aroma, lacto, smoked fish, biscuits, caramel notes. Smoked sourish flavor, citrus, lacto, caramel, some biscuits.

Cloudy orange color, white head. Fruity nose, light smoked, hints of wheat malt and cured meat. Sweet fruity taste, yeasty, smoked and sour notes, vomit-like hint in the finish. Medium body, soft to flat carbonation.

teorn88 (3064) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2014
Backlog rating. 33cl bottle from bierkompass. It pours a pale straw color with a small white head. Aroma of light funk, dust, smokey wood, citrus and barn yard. Taste is quite acidic with lemon juice, grass, foraged herbs, pineapple and wet soil. Quite dry and acidic finish. Overall, good tart beer
