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).

jookos (3078) - FINLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Bottle (SB, if my memory serves me right). Yellow hazy. Smoky nose. Wheaty malts, smoked ham, beef jerky, seaweed, peat. Sort of soft though, the smokyness is. Very pleasant. Med bodied, med dry finish. Good flavours, bunch of them. Malt-wise a bit weak- wheaty, blandish, but the peat/smoke is soft, nicely filling in. A soft nice drinkable smoked.

Draft pour at Mammoth Seattle, light golden pour, sour aroma, you can definitely taste the smoke in this one.

Homer321 (2437) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark yellow to orange color with minimal white head. Aroma is bacon, smoke, and a faint sour/tart character. Taste is mild compared to the aroma in terms of smoke, there is a pronounced lemon tartness in the flavor with a hint of perfume and coriander type of character. Ok, and interesting, but nothing crazy.

Vestergaard (632) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle with huge thanks to Bursprak!! Pours and unclear, light amber with a small, white head. Aroma has wheat, banana and some smoke. Taste is sweet up front, but turns more spicy with some smoke, slight hops, cow poo and grain. One could wonder how this is the same category as Goses. Well, not very good.

PapaSkeetSkeet (982) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 11, 2015
light amber-orange with fine off-white head, medium-slow rate of decay. Aroma is lots hardwood smoke! semi-sweet sour-dough bread, grass. Body is medium, oily, moderate, fine carbonation with light burn, creamy feel. Flavor is crazy! Tart (light under ripe raspberries) and light clean smokiness, blackberries, touch of strawberry, dry grain bread crust. Overall, this is a crazy, awesome beer. Such a neat combination of tart and smoky.

neongolden (680) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 10, 2015
(Bottle sample at tasting, VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Jan 26 2015) Pours a hazy medium gold with a whitish head that fades to a ring. Aroma of bacon and smoke, salty. Slight banana ester. Mildly lactic yoghurty notes. On the palate, banana, bubblegum and orange and raw wheat core, smoky salty bacon really kicks in towards the middle and keeps things dry. Pretty woody and smoky and herbal towards the finish with a little salt lingering into the aftertaste. Slightly mineral. Light bodied with almost no carb. First Lichtenhainer, really weird style. It is quite interesting, and not bad, but it isn’t something I would grab again by choice.

RasmusOtt (1353) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle @ dangerous bottleshare 5.0 . Pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of literally smoked wheat in a not particularly good way. Stable, yogurt and some straw as well. The taste is smokey and wheat as well. Also some hops, yogurt, stable and a slight note of cowshit! Pretty interesting indeed but not my thing at all.
