COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rarely seen German beer style, Lichtenhainer is a sour wheat beer brewed with 40% beechwood smoked malt. Tart and refreshing with an intriguing bacon/ham aroma.

yngwie (14762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2012
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. It pours an unclear, orange-yellow body and a small, white head. There’s a light smoke touch in the aroma, which is mostly wheat-ish and citrusy. Pleasant but a bit boring. The same goes for the flavor, with a nice bitterness lurking in the background. Citrusy, lemony mostly, with some smoke notes and wheat. Tart, medium-bodied and thin. Citrus peel in the finish. Although a bit boring, it’s certainly easy drinking and quenching. 120511

Koelschtrinker (11888) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 27, 2012
Säuerlich herber Beginn, zitronig. Säuerlicher werdend, intensiv, fruchtig, angenehme Rauchigkeit, dabei stört die starke Karbonisierung. Die Säure wird mit der Zeit deutlich stärker, äußerst erfrischend. Gelungenes Bier mit deutlich zu viel Kohlensäure. 10/11/12/12/9/12

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2012
Draft. A hazy golden beer with a lazing yellowish head. The aroma has notes of smoke, malt, and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of lemons, as well as lighter notes of smoke and malt, leading to a dry and slightly tart finish.

TURDFERGUSON (4008) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle, thanks OSCF. Lots of meat and smoke in nose, some lemon notes. Similar slightly sour and acidic flavor, light cereal, smoked ham. Drinkable but this style is still growing on me.

laiti (6564) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2012
65 cl bottle (4,2%) @ vPBF, bottled 13.02.2012
Aroma is stale and somewhat tart with apples, metal and some smoke. Very foamy palate. Flavour is really tart, sour and dry with some apples and hints of metal. The smoke occurs in the aftertaste once all the sourness is gone. Quite unique.

lusikka (6767) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2012
650 ml bottle @ vPBF 2012.
Pours a hazy pale yellow colour with loads of bubbles. Aroma of tart citrus, herbs and some wheaty notes. Quite strong flavour of wheat, strong sour citrus, some smoked wood and orange. Medium bodied and a mouth-drying finish with good citric tartness. Pretty close to a Berliner Weisse. Good one.

65 cl bottle @ vPBF. Bottled 02/2012.
Pours hazy yellow color with a large, rapidly dissipating head. Aroma of smoke, hay, yeast notes, wheat and mild fruits. Flavor of goose berries, wheat, mild hay, yeast and some smoke on the finish. Sour and very dry palate. A bit weird.

TBone (13532) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2012
Bottled 500ml (vPBF, alc. 4.2 %, bottled 02/2012)
Hazy yellow color, quickly collapsing white head.Very grainy, smokey aroma. Light bodied. Crisp, citrusy, tart flavor, Berliner Weisse -like. When citrus flavors vanish, then smoke comes in. Interesting, although not something to drink in regular basis.

tiong (4348) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2012
660ml bottle @ vPBF

Pours light yellow with some murky notes. Earthy aroma with hints of malts and meady notes. Taste is sour and fruity with hints of spices. Finish is dry and sweetish with some sourness and fruity notes. Okay, quite untypical.
