Very intersting new beer, as close to the original style as possible. Easy going beer with a great taste, luckily low in alcohol. Breadish, soft, not too smoky, balanced. I really enjoyed this. Not easy to distinguish from the Grodziskie (samerecipe with willow-bark added) however.

From WLVL. Seems at first light a soft but rather fruity lager but then has a touch of wheat beer flavor and the the smokeiness hits. Not over powering. Serving; Bottle

Aroma is fruit/citrus, salt and mild oxidation. The flavor is smoked malts, wheat, mild sweetness, salt, spices and a mix of slightly odd heat and sour in the finish.

Pours a slightly hazy blond with a medium white head...creamy lacing and retention. Aroma is crackery with faint smoke and fruit. Flavor follows suit...steps up the smoke just a bit...very mild. Mouthfeel is medium / full and creamy with a finish that goes from mildly earthy to more smokey.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Grodziskie made by The Monarchy, which intends to resurrect extinct beer types; a collaboration between Jopen, De Bierkoning, Evan Rail and beer historian Ron Pattison. Unfortunately not the willow-bark version - that would have been even more authentic, I guess. Stable, thick, creamy head, murky ochre blonde colour. Wheaty aroma with smoked meat, ashes, charcoal, grass, straw, soap; wheat sourish onset, some estery fruitiness, bit of citrus, strong smoked malts in the middle, ashes and tobacco, finishing in grassy and peppery hop bitterishness. Very interesting but not really accessible - and let’s be honest, there is not much around to compare this with.
