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.

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.

chriso (7482) - 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.
