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.

Countbeer (4429) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle @ RBESG’13 Grand Tasting @ De Molen: Served in a Molen taster: Thanks for sharing jfb: Medium sized white foamy head on top of a hazy yellow colored beer. Aromas of grains, smoke, sauerkraut, porridge. Flavours of smoke, grains, herbs, smoked hops. Aftertaste is a mix of smoke, grains, malts. Low carbo, soft creamy texture, medium body and a creamy texture. Bit dull and not much in both aroma and flavour but it’s quite easy to drink.

Pours light orange with moderate haze. Aroma of sweet malt almost like candy, grainy, hint of smoke. Smoke more prominent in flavor, not so sweet, offset by nondescript hops, a bit of horse blanket sourness blends well with the smoke. Solid mouth feel and light-moderate carbonation. Overall, an interesting beer outside my normal hoppy world.

Very easy to drink, interesting, quite lovely. Nice stuff.
