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.

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..

My first white smoked beer. Draught. Looks like a white beer with a small white head. Very nice aroma, fruity wiith berries. A small note of smoke, but not too much. The taste is good, with smoke and fruit and a wonderful bitter finish. I really like the way the smoketaste is made subtle and not too intrusive, besides, this must be one of the fullest beers marketed with the word "witte".

Incrdible smoke smell. First sip also has a stromg smoke/malt taste that slowly fades away bit always sticks around. Very nice and characteristic beer from Jopen.

Tap at 6th Noord-Holland Bierfestival, Alkmaar: Hazy yellow coloured brew with an intense smokey start that will faint fast away. The taste is kinda fruity and the finish kind a bitter with some smoke.

On 8th KBC 2011. A hazy yellow/golden colored beer, with a thick foamy white head. The aroma of smoked malts, a little sour with some fruits. The taste is fresh smoked malt with fruits in the back. The aftertaste is dry smoked with some bitter.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2011
On tap at ’t Arendsnest, Amsterdam on 3 April 2011. Noted at 6.5%. Reputed to be the first beer from the new kit at the brewpub in Haarlem. Hazy orange colour. Sweetish with some banana esters and clovey spices. Not much smoke in evidence. Which may be just as well as I’m not convinced that a sweet smoked wheat beer would be a great combination, for me at least. As it was, this was a bit too sweet for my liking. Decent enough, just not really to my taste.

A tapped wooden barrel atop the bar at Arends Nest. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light palate. A little dry. Low carbonation. Sweetish malt - somewhat tripel like. Mellow smoke, clear and present but never overwhelming. Nicely judged! Finishes a tiny bit dry with a trace of bubblegum and some subtle wood. Alright - fresh pleasant drinking smoked beer.

On tap @ Arendsnest. Smoked hefeweizen, I thought it was a combination that wouldn’t work, but it did, and surprisingly well. All the aroma’s of a good hefeweizen: wheat, juicy fruit, some banana/clove/vanilla and then some smoke, not too strong but clearly present. Flavor is ever so slightly sweet, grainy, smoky. Medium bodied, that helped too. Dryish somewhat bitter finish. Very pleasant surprise.
