COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Grodziskie or Grätzer is a Sour Smoked Wheat Ale that was brewed in the 1900s in East Prussia and dates back to as early as the 15th century. It was named after the Polish town of Grodzisk Wielkopolski or Grätz in German. Our historic version is brewed according to the German Purity Law with air-dried barley malt and beech smoked wheat malt and hopped with Perle and Saaz. A sour mash is created using the old and forgotten technique called “Digerieren.” Finally a three month aging and maturation process creates a complex sour, smoky and heavily hopped wheat ale.

Draught. Pours golden with nice pillowy head. Aroma is smoke. First taste is wheat which quickly changes to smoke. Not much ’sour’ in this one, but still pretty pleasant beer. Reminds me of campfire toasted marshmellows.

Bottle thanks to stevencon! Pours a hazy straw yellow with light white head and lacing. Aroma of bready grain, pils malt, slight smoke. Taste follows, no real sour flavor to me, kind of bland and unimpressive.

From bottle straw color very small white head. Very light smoke and sour aroma light pils malt. Very light smoke and even less sour. Not like the American versions. Good but not intense.

Thanks stevencon! Clear golden pour with a thin white head. Faint pale pils malt aroma with some bread, I'm not getting the smoke or sour. Flavor is the same with some more noticeable sourness and smoke in the back end. Meh.

The aroma is light malt, fruit, earth, and yeast. The appearance is deep gold with an orange hue and a small head. The taste is smoky which was hidden in the aroma. The palate is average. Overall an interesting beer.

Has a nice light body but has a definite smoky flavor with touch of jerky. The flavor is quite lovely with little bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Location/Date:Bottle split with Jay on 2/23/2013.

Appearance: Pours a dark orange cloud.
Aroma: Aroma is yeasty earthy, wheat.
Taste: Wheat, faint sour, faint smoke, nice balance.br/> Palate:Light body, quick finish.

Summary: I like smoke beers and find sour beers to be just okay, but this "traditional" mix of the two was nice.
