"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.

Citroengele kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt citrus, iets rook, bacon, kruiden. Smaakt beetje raar. Bacon, verder iets gerookt en niet dader te bepalen smaken. Tikkeltje bitter in de afdronk.

Daanminator (476) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2014
Ik had de witte rook gevonden in mijn trappenkast met 4 maanden over datum maar dat doet absoluut geen afbreuk aan de kwaliteit.Weinig schuim na het inschenken. Mooie honingachtige kleur. Geur van hout en rook.Smaak blijft lang hangen van rook, hout en spices. Heerlijk zachte afdronk.

Taboada (963) - Compostela (Galiza), - JUN 24, 2014
Tap tasted on 24/06/2014. Hazy medium orange colour with a medium persistent white head. Weak aroma of citrus, malts and smoke. The flavour is not well balanced between the malts and the smoke. Not a memorable smoke beer. Next one please!

Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2014
(Draught at Jopenkerk, Haarlem, 27 Feb 2014) Hazy golden colour with dense, off-white head. Malty, slightly smoky nose with notes of white bread, banana and gentle smoke aromas. Malty, slightly smoky taste with banana, peaches, white bread and gentle hints of smoke. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Quite tasty, with a fairly gentle smoke character. Quite nice.

jmgreenuk (7843) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 6, 2014
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 (6539) - 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.

blackisle (2092) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2013
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.
