COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A long-lost style originally from Eastern Europe. The combination of wheat, pilsner, and cherrywood smoked malts with a lactic and a traditional fermentation creates a strange but captivating brew.

Pours golden and cloudy. White head with moderate retention. Initial taste is tart followed by a complimentary amount of smoke. Much more mild than a rauchbier and not harsh in any way. Finishes tart and smoky. Initial aroma is of grapefruit pulp.

Draft at Rapp. Smells awful but tastes fantastic. Unique twist on sour. Guess style been around forever but never had a smoked sour until today. Just donít smell and drink away!

tricyclist (832) - Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Perplexing... Itís smoked an itís sour... It doesnít look smokey... Sample pour of light yellow with little to no head. Aroma is smoked hickory, camp fire, and faint citric notes. Intriguing. Flavor is smoked finish but starts sour, tart also in the finish. Iím still picking up the smoke after a minute. I dig it.

Ferris (4959) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Draft - Woody, light smoke, lime and lacto. Cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Bacon meets slat and vinegar. I love it, Gose/Rauch.

kempshark (6) - Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2014 does not count
Just enough smoke and the right amount of sour to off-set it. I donít normally like smoked beers, but I love sours. This one was a good combination of the two.

hopdog (9133) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2014
22oz bottle. Poured a golden color with a larger sized head. Carbonated & fizzy body with a dry finish. I was getting band-aids and could not get past that. Smoked meats, tart, and fruity ... but oh no, no band-aids please.
