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).

Smoky more than sour. Milky, but also, somehow, thin. Not bad, but didn’t live up to my Oh too high expectations.

vadie (1229) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2016
Jaune pale et opaque avec une grande robe blanche. L’arôme du blé et un peu de fumée et houblon florale, et peut être du sel. En bouche c’est léger mais assez complexe, avec des céréales, du blé, pain, un peu du fumée et une finition légèrement amer.

Pint at Vultures’ Lane. So smoky, the wheat and sour both take a backseat and that’s a shame. I like it but I feel it could have been so much more.

On tap. Not my cup of tea. Odd, lingering aftertaste that bothered me. Feel on the tongue was also....unpleasant. I wanted to like this one but I cannot. Next....

Tap at Beergeek Bar Freigeist tap takeover. Slightly grainy, cereal, oatmeal like. Moderate level of beechwood smoke. Faintest hint of lactic acid. Thin bodied and easy drinking with a high carbonation. Very good.
