"Witte Rook" is onze gerookte blonde Weizenbock. Dit blonde bier wordt gebrouwen als eerste brouwsels van het jaar. Het bier is dan rond de vastentijd gereed om te drinken. Het aroma van de Witte Rook is bepaald door een met beukenhout gerookte mout, wat een zacht spekachtig aroma oplevert. Dit combineert goed met de fruitige aroma’s van de Weizenbock.

Witte Rook was in 2011 het eerste Jopen bier dat in de kerk gebrouwen werd en is nu een seizoensmatig terugkerend bier geworden. Het bier wordt in kleine hoeveelheden op fles afgevuld.

Tap at the Jopenkerk. Poured a hazy light amber with a big frothy white head. The aroma is light smoke light yeast. The flavour is neutral herb veg with a smooth light smoke light fruit light malt, yeast palate. Pretty light everything actually including the smoke, which is rather unusual for a smoke beer! Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Idiosynkrasie (4915) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2013
330ml bottle. Cloudy orangey dark golden to amber colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head, Fruity, wheat malty aroma, hints of pear, peach and banana, slightly unpleasant backgroundish smoke note has hints of peat, cold ashes and sere dog dejection. Taste is of the same mixture with intensening smoke notes; unbalanced, oscillating between if not incompatible then seemingly improper components; not completely bad though. Finally a ’centre of a seesaw’-rating.

Hazy orange amber, tiny off-white head, dissipates quickly, hardly any lacing; nose at first smoked, bacon, burned wood, followed by wheat, bread, banana, dough, orange peel, citrus; medium sweet, some banana, cloves, mildly smoked; medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, finish dry bitter, woody kinda smoky. Not that strong smoked as a rauchbier, smokiness more in the background.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2015 Pours a hazy dark orange. Aroma consist mostly of smoke and some wheats, with an aftertaste reminiscent of smoked bacon. Unfortunately I found this one ruined by too much malty sweetness.

Smokey white beer with a hint of smoked ham. Nice to drink, but not too memorable.

Zachte jodiumsmaak, sinaasappelschil en komkommer, nasmaak snel weg. Aroma is wat rokerig, afgestoken vuurwerk en medicinaal. Troebel oranje met slappe kraag.

Fles gedeeld met rikstar. Amber kleurig licht troebel weinig schuim. Heel licht rokerig in de geur. Smaak is bacon met klein bittertje.

Rook? In de geur vooral mout met in de verte een vleugje rook. De kleur amber en troebel, schuim is minimaal crème met een fijne structuur. Smaak is beetje bacon met een licht bittere afdronk.
