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.

Draft at Mr. Dunderbak’s in Tampa. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a medium sized head. Subtle smokiness in the aroma and flavor with a good bit of tart/sourness. Very tasty.

Bottle courtesy of ericdevin. Fruity wheat malt and strong clove aroma. Cloudy dark straw gold with a large white head. Light smoky malt, and tart fruity flavor with just the slightest hint of hops in the finish. LIght body, moderate carbonation. Very minimally smoky flavored, light, and easy drinking.

Bottle @ RBESG. Aroma has loads of spices and quite some smoke. Flavour is big smoke, some caramel and loads of spice. Interesting but not my thing.

weihenweizen (1919) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Refrigerated 0.5 L brown bottle poured into a english pint glass. Pours hazy deep golden with one finger white head. Aroma is slight smoke, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is tart and some light smoke. Interesting, but not something I would go out of my way to have again.

rodenbach99 (3301) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2013
Bouteille de 500ml bue à Paris. Intrigante bière que cette Grätzer, une bière de blé sûre et fumée. Un style quasi disparue aujourd’hui. Un liquide jaune dorée avec une mousse blanche. Un nez quelque peu fumé avec des notes lactiques de blé sûr. La bouche est agréable avec ses légères et subtiles notes fumées. Une finale, fraiche et franche, épicée et rafraichissante.

Clear straw pour with small white head. Smokey citrus and wheaty nose. Unique smokey, slightly sour taste. light body and wheaty texture. Slightly sweet finish. Wish I had chilled it more

pivnizub (9100) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2013
Bottle( kindly delivered by jfb!): Deep golden, cloudy , slowly collapsing loose white head with a little lace, sweetish wheaty-fruity (apricots) nose with very faint traces of smoked malt; dryish sourish-sweetish flavour, light bodied; lingering hoppy and sourish finish. Not too special, tastes a bit like an average German Hefeweizen…
