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.

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.

Bottle. Brewed with Hallertau Mittelfrue, interesting. Same like the saphyr they brew with. Are they doing those de Molen-like typo’s on purpose? Hazy golden color, medium slight off-white head. Aroma of soft dry smoke, banana, hint of clove, some fruity hop. Nice combination of beechwood smoke and weizen. Quite dry in taste with again some dry smokeyness and banana. Finishes with the dry woody smoke. Could have used a little more sweetness/body, instead it finishes on the dry side. Overall the intensity of the smoke is medium and the smoke is more woody than bacon or peat-like, which I think is the best fit for a weizen-like style. Good beer.

Hazy orange gold with a thick, foamy, lacy, lasting white head. Smells of smoke fills the air once the bottle is opened, yeast, caramel with some wheat/banana, cloves, vanilla and some sourness. A smoked witbier interesting. Smells a bit musky. Medium thin body with soft carbonation. Tastes like slightly burnt malt which gives the impression of bacon, banana, vanilla and yeast and mild fruitiness. Some citrus tartness in the dry finish but with a lingering smokiness. The smoke was not to powerful and such not overwhelming the drink. It was interesting and I proved to my friends that a beer can taste like BBQ. I enjoyed drinking it but I wouldn’t have it again.

My first white beer with smoke. Was a very nice suprise, didn’t suspect too much of it. Nice yellow/orange color with a good head. Smells like citrus, banana and smoke. Taste was very good with some citrus, vanilla, bacon and smoke. Aftertaste was too high

Draft. This is not my first tought of a smoked beer. Aroma in the beer has little smoke, but loads of citrus smells. Loved the smell for a witbier, but not for a smoked. Flavour has loads of citrus tarts, but again little smoke. More like a very decent witbier to me..
