Try the new Brewmasters Reserve: Smoked Weissbock. Bamberg, the central town in the Franconia region of northern Bavaria, is home to one of the world’s most unique beer styles – smoked beer or “rauchbier”. The barley malt is dried over beechwood fires, taking on a smoky quality that infuses the beer brewed from it. Smoked lagers are common in Franconia, but there’s a further specialty as well – smoked wheat beer. Only the barley malt is smoked, while the wheat is malted normally. This gives the beer a lightly smoky quality which is a perfect complement to the fruitiness imparted by the weissbier yeast. These beers have inspired us to bring you something more special still – Brooklyn Smoked Weissbock. At the doppelbock strength of 8%, this beer is full-bodied and complex, retaining the light acidity of the wheat balanced against fruit. Underneath is the light beechwood smoke, making this a wonderful beer with to enjoy with food. The palate finishes dry and spritzy. Try it with any pork dish (especially barbecue), traditional Mexican dishes, robust seafood such as monkfish, and Chinese dishes featuring black bean sauce. Malt: German two row smoked barley malt, German wheat malt, Belgian aromatic malts, caramalt. Hops: German Perle ABV: 8%

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2007 Draught @ Københavnske Øldage 2007 in Copenhagen. Poured by Garrett Oliver him self :o)). Hazy amber color with a large frothy fair lacing mostly lasting off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy yeasty, banana, bubble gum, caramel, notes of smoke. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft, finish feel is light alcoholic. Very nice Weizebock ;o))

CBF07 sample from tap. Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is smoke, malty and banana fruity. Flavour is slight smoked and malty. A touch of smoke and bacon in finish. Nice.

Draft. A hazy orange-amber beer with a lazing orange head. The aroma is nice with notes of smoke, peaches, and oranges, as well as hints of rope. The flavor is sweet and very fruity - especially oranges, but also with light notes of wheaty, banana, smoke, and alcohol, leading to a dry wheaty end. Quite nice - but more smoke would suit my tastebuds.

Draught. Pours a hazy orange color with an off-white head. Sweet wheaty smoke aroma with some hints of bananas. Sweet malty banana flavor with some weak hints of smoke. Sweet malty finish with banana in the aftertaste and some weak hints of smoke aswell.

omhper (25113) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2007
Draught at Københavnske Øldage. Hazy amber, rich persistant head. Toffeeish banana aroma. Sweet and phenolic with some syrup and very careful smokiness. Too sweet to be refreshin, too careful flavourwise to entertain. Falls between the chairs.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2007
(On tap) Slightly hazy amber golden with a dense, off-white head. Aroma of banana - the smoke you have to imagine. Fairly full-bodied with sweetish banana notes and cloves. Sweetish, lightly caramlish finish with only the faintest whiff of smoke. 110507

MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2007
Draught at KØ07. The aroma reminds me of Aventinus, lots of sweet banana esters. Very hazy brown colour. Very small creamy head. Good sour banana flavour with notable smokiness. The carbonation is not high, but even so still seems hard.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2007
Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2007. Cloudy, amber - offwhite head. Aroma and taste: Banana, light ligh smoked, wheat, licorice. Not unpleasant just boring.

Tmoney99 (14479) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2007
Draft at the Dilly Deli. Poured dark reddish brown with an large fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Heavy complex roasted toffee smoke woody and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a creamy texture. Medium complex sweet flavor with a heavy smooth bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer and good for #2200.
