COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Grodziskie or Grätzer is a Sour Smoked Wheat Ale that was brewed in the 1900s in East Prussia and dates back to as early as the 15th century. It was named after the Polish town of Grodzisk Wielkopolski or Grätz in German. Our historic version is brewed according to the German Purity Law with air-dried barley malt and beech smoked wheat malt and hopped with Perle and Saaz. A sour mash is created using the old and forgotten technique called “Digerieren.” Finally a three month aging and maturation process creates a complex sour, smoky and heavily hopped wheat ale.

På fat, 4 oz. Orange med litet vitt skum. Citrus, banan, örter och ovan detta en svag rökighet. Samma återkommer i smaken, fast här är rökigheten mer påtaglig. Njutbart sur.

Unfiltered orange-tan. Thin white head. Medium bodied, very smooth and creamy on the palate. Banana, tangy hops, mild smoke, clove, bubblegum. Really pleasant sour tones. Hyper sessionable.

Sampled from a bottle at Where the Wild Beers Are. Hazy yellow pour, very watery, not all that interesting. Kind of meh.

500 ml bottle. Served in a mug, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with a half inch off-white head. Both the head retention and lacing are decent enough. The aroma is light, the brew smells like wheat, smoke, and some fruitiness. It mostly tastes like smoked malt and wheat, along with some green grapes/grape skins, apples and a bit of tart lemon. The label says it’s a sour smoked wheat ale, but there really isn’t much tart/sourness in this at all. With that being said, it’s not a bad tasting brew! Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s slick, smooth and easy to drink. At $6.49 a bottle, I don’t think I’d pay that price for this again. But it was nice to try once.

A surprising beer on two counts. One, it is much lighter in color tha I expected and two, the sour takes center stage with the smoke notes in back. Enjoyed every sip though. Very subtle.

Bottle courtesy of ericdevin. Fruity wheat malt and strong clove aroma. Cloudy dark straw gold with a large white head. Light smoky malt, and tart fruity flavor with just the slightest hint of hops in the finish. LIght body, moderate carbonation. Very minimally smoky flavored, light, and easy drinking.
