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.

weihenweizen (3575) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Refrigerated 0.5 L brown bottle poured into a english pint glass. Pours hazy deep golden with one finger white head. Aroma is slight smoke, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is tart and some light smoke. Interesting, but not something I would go out of my way to have again.

rodenbach99 (4532) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2013
Bouteille de 500ml bue à Paris. Intrigante bière que cette Grätzer, une bière de blé sûre et fumée. Un style quasi disparue aujourd’hui. Un liquide jaune dorée avec une mousse blanche. Un nez quelque peu fumé avec des notes lactiques de blé sûr. La bouche est agréable avec ses légères et subtiles notes fumées. Une finale, fraiche et franche, épicée et rafraichissante.

pivnizub (10452) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2013
Bottle( kindly delivered by jfb!): Deep golden, cloudy , slowly collapsing loose white head with a little lace, sweetish wheaty-fruity (apricots) nose with very faint traces of smoked malt; dryish sourish-sweetish flavour, light bodied; lingering hoppy and sourish finish. Not too special, tastes a bit like an average German Hefeweizen…

PapaSkeetSkeet (1009) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Rather hazy yellow with nice white head that fades to 1-2mm. Aroma of tart grain, cedar, hint of banana and smoke. Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Flavor is dry grain with bark bitterness. Zingy grain sweetness. Not overly sour or smokey. Ok.

DSG (13906) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle shared at a sour tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Cloudy yellow. Pretty smoky aroma, somewhat meaty, with some fruitiness and an oxidation note. Flavor has light sweetness, quite a bit of smokiness, a bit of fruitiness, faint sourness, and a finish with light hoppy bitterness. Light to medium-bodied.

ineedbeer (2119) - Oakland, California, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Aroma is moderately estery with notes of red apple cider, pear and banana. There are light acid and smoke notes, but the esters seem to dominate the aroma. Light malt character with hints of phenolics. Pours a cloudy, dull gold with some light brown highlights. Medium sized white head that recedes fairly quickly. Flavor starts with some maltiness with notes of wheat and lightly toasted bread. Light acidity, nowhere near as acidic as Berliner Weiss. The smoke hits in the finish and is fairly light but definitely noticeable. Moderate ester notes that trend more towards banana. Light wheat note in finish as well. Low noble hop flavor in late palate with low bitterness. Mouthfeel is light bodied and a bit watery, carbonation is medium high. No astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall an OK beer, but I wonder how representative of the style this beer is. The esters seem too strong and the smoke too light based on the little reading I have done. Also it could use more hop character.
