COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

MikeKeller (956) - Kemi, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget. Beautiful reddish beer with a thick head. Malty, mildly smoked, tasty beer. Smokiness not in Schlenkerla levels but works great for the balance. A tad watery but decent stuff still.

Almost no head, reddish chestnut coloured beer. Smoked ham aroma, and a fresh vegetable - raw gurkins? Mineral, hearth fire, cured meat. Light taste with again smoked ham, lard, glowing ashes connotations. Yet again something fresh veggielike - impossible to nail down. Quite light body, watery consistency, beer feels rather tired. Too old? Light Rauch. Good.

33cl bottle from Grand Cru, Rimini. It pours a clean rich copper / ruby color with a small beige head. Aroma is sweet and malty, with notes of prunes, caramel, grains and light woody smoke. Taste is mostly sweet, with a very faint tartness in the finish. Smoke is also very mild in the aftertaste. Main notes are caramel, toffee, plums and figs. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, not very smoky and not very tasty.

Rauch poco particolare dal forte aroma affumicato che non dispiace ma dal gusto poco deciso! Non ai livelli di alle smoked da me provate in passato. Passabile!
