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.

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 (4953) - 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 (3576) - 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 thats my tongue after Maakuns homebrew cider, quite alright.

fidelis83 (2364) - 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 its the first Ive had of the Lichtenhainer style, but its intrigued me enough to seek it out.

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 doesnt dominate the entire palate.

Is way to much of a smokey flavor to it. Not as sour as I was hoping for but drinkable.

Wonderful aromas of meat, smoke and ash. Oh fabulous blend of taste of smokiness and malty. OK bitterness which fills the upper part of the mouth a weak moment. Even some citrus comes to the end. But still a really good beer. Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Bottle at the Free Trade Inn. Pours light golden with a small head round the edge of the glass. The nose is smoked bacon and baked beans. Taste is a little creamy in the mouth with a lovely smoked flavour. Really delicious.
