COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"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.

Abijen (1574) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2013
Pours a nice orange beer with a good white head. Smells fruity. I expected smoke aroma. There were some hints but not much. The taste contained morr smoke. A bit dull beer. But nice

Douberd (2902) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2013
330 ml bottle, poured into a weizen. ABV 7% Deep orange golden colour on the body, hazy, with two full fingers of white head, with average retention, collapsing withiut leaving any lacing on the glass. Heavy aroma of smoke that covers everything else. Taste of smoke mainly, then some wheat surfaces. Medium sweet taste, gets numbed again from the smoked malts. Aftertaste is a combination of fruity flavours and smoke. Medium thin body, soft carbonation. Not that bad, maybe a little too much smoke for me.

vipinvelp (2542) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2013
Somewhat hazy dark yellow with white foam head. Aroma is not strong, some barley, some citrus, some wood. Taste is not a smoked nor a weizen beer, certainly a mixture of both. Aftertaste is citrus dominated. (Velp 201306).

Bosskie (496) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2013
Frothy head over a hay coloured opaque beer without carbonation. Smoked ham, bbq smell. Salty, ash, smoke taste mixed with Belgian triple sweetness.. hints of cherries even. Fruitiness, peaches? Brilliant. A surprising on-the-edge, schizophrenic fusion of rauchbeer and Belgian classic triple. Not a beer you want everyday but an artwork you need to put effort in to explore when you’re in the mood.

ShivanDragon (1961) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2013
Amber ondoorzichtig met witte kraag Aroma: fruitig, licht rokerig, iets fruitig edoch beperkt Smaken: medium zoet, citrus, banaan zepig mondgevoel en rokerig De rook bieren zullen nooit in mijn top 10 bieren belanden verwacht ik, het voordeel van deze is dat hij niet overheersend is.

Martinus (3440) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2013
Slightly hazy light brown colour, white head. Aroma of smoke, malts, light honey, dried meat and apricot. Malty flavour, ash, smoked wheat, smoke, the kind you find in smoked ham cheese potato chips (hamka’s). Lots of carbo. Light sour finish, wheat, banana, sweet touches, light smoke, lingering ash.
(From 33cL bottle @ home)

Countbeer (4974) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2013
Bottle: Medium sized bit airy but vast white creamy head on top of a hazy orange colored beer. Aromas of smoke, leather, malts, peach, apricot, some sweets, tobacco, hint of red fruit, plants, sweat... Flavours of wheat, weak malts, some smoke, sweat, creamy, yeast, some light smoked branches and malts, hint of bananas, (old dried) peach, herbs and floral hints. Aftertaste is a mix of weak malts and hops, some yeast, light bitter and some floral hints.. Low to medium carbo, creamy foamy mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture. Aroma is ok, taste is weak and unbalanced.

Tastes exactly like you’d expect: a smoked weizen. Creamy and a nice smokey flavor. I could drink this on a warm day, but it’s no winner.
