Questa è la birra che decisi di creare per celebrare il mio matrimonio, in omaggio alla mia sposa che ha sempre avuto una predilezione per le Rauch. La città di Bamberg con le sue tradizionali birre affumicate ci è rimasta nel cuore; l’abbiamo girata in lungo e in largo, abbiamo indugiato sui tavoli delle sue birrerie e ci siamo fermati tante volte a contemplare i rivoli d’acqua del fiume Regnitz.
Al matrimonio ci furono circa duecento invitati e 450 litri di birra a disposizione. Ricordo che il giovedì mi trovavo ancora a Tettnang a selezionare il luppolo del nuovo raccolto e mi dovevo sposare il sabato, per decorare la festa portai dieci piante intere di luppolo appena staccate dal campo. Invece del riso gli invitati ci lanciarono fiori di luppolo e nel taschino della giacca portai un rametto di luppolo in fiore. Quella del matrimonio fu a detta di molti la festa più bella di tutta la loro vita, fu una cosa davvero memorabile. Vendemmo la birra non consumata ai nostri clienti ai quali piacque così tanto che decidemmo di continuare a produrla e ora è entrata a far parte della famiglia.

I created this beer to celebrate my wedding and my bride who has always loved Rauch beers. The city of Bamberg is particularly dear to us. We ventured through its streets, indulged in its well known smoked beers and stood together contemplating the water ripples of the river Regnitz.
Being in Tettnang 2 days before the wedding to select the newly harvested hops, I brought back 10 freshly uprooted hop plants to decorate the wedding reception. Instead of the traditional rice tossing, the guests showered us with hop flowers. My weeding suit was garmented by a small hop blossom as well. With more than 200 guests and 450 liters of beer, many remember our celebration as one of the most memorable gatherings they have ever attended.
Selling the leftover beer to some clients was such a success that we decided to keep brewing it. It is now part of our beer family!

Dark maple syrup color Amber big foam. Aroma Band-Aids and smoke like a funky saison. Tastes smoky yet integrated. Slight saltiness. Rye bread. This is a delicious tribute to Bamberg smoked brews. Palate is rustic dry and slightly watery.

Smoke is in the aroma, not so much in the flavor which makes this a nice subtle beer, even gets a little sweet towards the end. Easy to drink Tap at Craft and Draft

Bevuta in bottiglia. Colore marrone scuro. Schiuma poco persistente. Sentori di legno bruciato, speck e miele. Sono una fan delle Rauch, direi ok.

Bottle from Birrivico, Como, L169 14, bb 01 06 15; 5.4% ABV
Dark amber color, hazy, with generous head. It has a good smoke component; it’s a bit mellow, some caramel, lightly sweet; it lacks of some more character though.
