DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 14, 2012
IDraft @ tap & mallet, rochester. Hazed peach color, thin off-white head, lacey. Smells of fruit...soft, somewhat tart, peachy flavors with the faint mety smokiness lingering in the finish...as decent and refreshing as this is, I donít see much of a resemblance to berliner weisse. But maybe I do a bit with the tartness and the mellowness but the fruitiness is big towards the peach and the alcohol seems about double what it shoud be and that smokiness and lack of grainy notes...decent though.

Very cloudy rust-red orange with a normal two-finger head. Smell is tart, salty. Taste is very smooth with no sourness at all. A bit like salted caramal with all the sweetness removed, not sure how else to explain it.

peponi (1842) - Hannover, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2017
Aroma: smoked ham, light acid notes. Appearance: hazy golden color and thin white head. Taste: intensive smoked notes, light sourness, thin malty backbone, bonfire, semi-dry. Palate: low body and high carbonation, smoky finish. Overall: really nice lichtenhainer, should be probably a little bit more sour.

cattaneopapa (386) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2017
500ml bottle from LCBO. 6%alc./vol. Pours a deep gold colour with one finger of head. Aromas of smoked sausage and yeast. Taste matches the aroma with some sour notes. I guess it would be nice to have it with some german sausage and saurkraut at Oktoberfest...but other than that itís nothing spectacular Reviewed on 10/10/2016

Such a strange beer. A medium smoke to the aroma. The flavor is both sour and smoky, a strange combination that is both enjoyable and off-putting. Just weird.

dnicolaescu (2535) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - APR 8, 2017
BOTTLE 50 CL. Dark golden with lots of floaties, ivory head. Gentle maltiness, a bit fruity, nice moderate smokiness. Similar taste - round malts, slight smoky spicy. Balanced and tame.

Maakun (5408) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2017
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Hazy golden with small white head. Some smoke, light malts, soft lactic notes, soft dried fruits, campfire, light ham. Nice balance between smoke, fruits, malt and soft lactic notes with coresponding light sweetness and sourness. Just medium bodied. Quite good for a smoked beer.

sjogro (3956) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2017
Bottle shared at samenscholing. Hazy golden with white head. Dry grains, light smoked sausage. Light sour, bitter and sweet, vaguely salty. Medium body and sandy feel, or maybe thatís my tongue after Maakunís homebrew cider, quite alright.

fidelis83 (2403) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 5, 2017
Hazy peach to golden pour with a two finger, soapy, off white head. Aroma is smoke, crabapple, lactic tartness, hints of earthy leaves new moss, grass and spicy hops. Flavor is smoke, bread, sweet wheat, a faint hint of bubblegum, light perfumey, citrus and mineral notes. Medium body, slick to oily feel, light, blanketing, sharp carbonation, slick finish. Pretty tasty, I believe itís the first Iíve had of the Lichtenhainer style, but itís intrigued me enough to seek it out.

sulawang (1155) - - MAR 15, 2017
Visual: Pours clear golden orange with a lasting 1mm micro head, fast steady singular streams.

Nose: soft smoky burnt rubber (lvl-4)-pungency

Attack: crisp, bright sour-light smoky impression

Mid-palate: light tingly-fizzy-burpy, (lvl-4-sweetness), tangy-sour lemony, barley-wheat malt

Finish: tart wheat malt palate roughish, light smoky rubber exhale, residual grainy barley malt

Summary: A very interesting revived beer style with loads of texture and an appetizing flavour profile. I like that the smokiness is clean and doesnít dominate the entire palate.

bubblehouse (1493) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 5, 2017
Is way to much of a smokey flavor to it. Not as sour as I was hoping for but drinkable.
