Smak och doft av humle, jäst, citron, gräs, örter, trä med toner av rök och laktris. Lagom sötma, fin syrlighet. Lätt kropp, beska med toner av citrus. Välbalanserad och uppfriskande. motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 26, 2014
2012 version, bottled - one sampled fresh, the other 2 years later. lightly hazed orange with a thin white head; aroma of sweaty socks, pissed on campfire embers, lemon sherbet; plenty of lactic sourness, pleasant lightly salty smoked character, some citric tang.

Small head. A: Yeast, smoke, perfume, grain T: Sweet, smoke, barley, grapes, grapefruit. Long aftertaste with hops! Quite alright! thegreenrooster (4626) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Pour is a cloudy amber with a huge white head. Aroma is a small smoke, grilled meat with some lactic sourness. Flavor is tart and a bit sour with a nice chewy wheat malt. Some of the smoked malt comes out in the backround but it mostly appears after the swallow. Flavors are kinda mellow. The sour and smoke are there but not over the top. I’ve never had a lichtenhainer beer before so I have nothing to compare it to but I guess its a cross between a gose and rauchbier. Although it’s neither overly sour or smoky. fiulijn (21506) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 1, 2014

Cloudy golden color with compact head. Very nice aroma, smoke, but also apples, probably because, I think, this is old. Smooth mouthfeel, some smoke, salt, mild acidity. A bit weak in the final.

Cloudy deep blond color with almost no head. Mild aroma of sour malt, delicate fruity touch. Smooth mouthfeel; the combination of lactic sourness and smoked malt is delicate and very nice; the bitterness is quite low; ends with mild lemony acidity.
Nice display of sour apple tartness & more traditional hefe like qualities. The fruity, sweet and sour aroma is brought together by a subtle but ever present smokiness, that comes through a little in the flavor as well. If the beer has a fault, it may be a little too yeasty and full for the style, but damn it’s complex and tastes great." Ionlyrate5s (103) - New York, USA - SEP 23, 2014
I love this style, so complex. Barnwood and slight mold and awesome lactic sourness. Each flavor popped up all over. Fantastic version. A++++ pras (602) - Maryland, USA - SEP 14, 2014
This beer was straight up blue cheese, both in the nose and taste. Slightly sweet, but cheese overwhelmed it. I love blue cheese and I love beer, but not united like votron. Palme (4856) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2014
On tap @ Mikkeller Bar. Looks nice with a deep cloudy almost glowing orange body. It also has a small white top that’s leaving nice small blondes down the sides of the glass. It has a nice not to overpowering smoky beefy nose this. I even get traces of licorice and some grains. Lots of flavor! It’s a bit sharp and sour at first perhaps, I get hay, pickeled salty lemons and some really nice brett fruity thin in the back. In the mouth it feels light oily and it has a relatively high carbonation level. Not too much though. The smoke is not disturbing at all and honestly I don’t even notice it until the aftertaste. However it’s quite present in the aftertaste, but I kinda like it. Good stuff! 12.01.2014 Chudwick (3423) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Half liter into Les Rouges - nose is campfire. Sip adds sour citric nonsense that just blends with the smoke. Smoke really makes me appreciate the sourness of the beer south better. The tartness also helps. I get latent and obvious wheat. And odd beer I normally wouldn’t drink but the smoke allowed me to approach it.
