look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

One of the most original beers I have tasted in awhile. The base of a good hefe , soured and then smoked. The sour notes balance the banana flavours of the Hefe and then the smoke comes through in the finish and the nose. It all works as the balance is there and such the drinkability is maintained. I have never tasted a combination such as this and I applaud German brewers who step outside the tried and true styles that dominate the country.

3.51/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance:
Medium orange colored body, very hazy, with a thin white head. Light carbonation and light lacing.

Aroma:
Slight tang of tart fruits and and a light sweetness. All malt, no hop notes to speak of. Overall, this is pretty dull as everything is too muted - requiring a fair amount of effort to pick up the subtle aromas.

Taste:
Tart fruit right off the bat. A bit of orange and peach provides a bit of sweetness, though, not much else to report on, sadly... A bit of peat character on the finish and in the aftertaste, otherwise the smoked character is way too muted.

Mouthfeel:
Light-medium bodied with good carbonation. Goes down easy with a semi-dry finish.

Overall:
Worth adding to your palate but there is not enough smokey character though.

Cloudy amber with the thinnest of heads.

Scent is hay,citrus, and damp earth.

Tart citrus and sourdough bread followed by grain and grass. Mineral and faint smoke finish.

Thin mouth with low carbonation.

Really great all around. Not nearly as much smoke presence as I'd expected, but far more complex. Well balanced and very easy drinking.

330ml bottle. Footed Flute glass. Pale brass, foggy appearance. White froth, close crown. Fairly good retention. Lasting thin layer on top. Gentle acidic at first -wine like- followed by slight sugar & bready notes. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation but funny palate. Oily texture. Citric astringency in the middle rounded by sour fruity notes - green pears & apples. Low bitterness. Long acidic finish & subtle hops on the aftertaste. Refreshing & easy drinkable.

A-Pours a dim, hazy orange. Even an aggressive, downward pour brings forth only a light, white head that has almost no core, only a crown of outer bubbles.

S-I may have served this initially too cold. Aroma is muted. I do get smoke. Not tart, smells like a smoky Hefe. Belgian spice.

T-The flavor is also tame in tartness but it's there. The smokiness really complicates the flavor. It works during some sips but falls apart during others. Like a smoky, tart apple juice with spices. Finishes with a dried wheat flavor.

M-Bigger and fuller than most Berliners. Finishes surprisingly clean. Carbonation is pretty mellow.

O/D-Interesting. Never had a "Smoked Lichtenhainer Weisse". I dare say, I would take another stab at this interesting brew.

16.9 oz bottle was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy golden yellow with somewhat good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Smokey, ham, wheat, and a little funkiness.

Taste: Smokey wheat, tart, ham, salty, a little sour, and a little bitter.

Mouthfeel: Tart, Puckett, acidic, chewy, light bodied, and light to medium carbonation.

Overall: A style I am a little familiar with and this beer is like a rauchbier and Berliner Weiss mixed in him. Delicious and interesting. Might not be for some people, but I enjoyed it.

500ml bottle into a snifter.

A: Pours a murky dark orange with a spongy white head.

S: Smells of mild smoked meat, some lightly acidic citrus notes, sweet wheat.

T: Taste brings subtle lactic acidity (more of the feel of tartness on the tongue rather than a flavor), pleasant mild smoked malt, light grainy sweetness.

M: Light-bodied with very fine carbonation giving the beer a silky feel.

O: The smoked malt is nice but they need to let the lacto do its work here...not nearly acidic enough.

Small head, but it leaves a lot of lumpy lace. Hazy with a dark straw/light gold color.

Earthy and sour smell. There's a bit of soup/stew aroma as well. Not a fan of this.

Quite sour flavor. Little wheat taste. The body is a bit watery, in both body and carbonation. The aftertaste reminds me of cranberry juice. Overall, I can't advise to try this. I even find the smoky flavor to be distracting.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a thin white head that dssipates to patchy foam and a ring around the glass. Mild aroma of lemon, white grapes and slight biscuit malt, faint smoke. Flavor is tart lemon, apple and grape juice up front, very tart at first, but soon ameliorated by smoky dry light fruit. Light bodied. An interesting take on the Berliner style. The flavor was almost to tart at first, but does mellow in the finish, althoug it leaves a lingering lactic tart and smoke aftertaste. Flavors are tart, but not intense. Although tart beers are not my style, I enjoyed this. I would have liked a bit more smoke presence, although the smoke does make this beer stand out. Interesting and different.

A: Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a fingers worth of head that fades down to a very thin cap within a few minutes

S: A bit of a mash-up. Some fruity yeast, smoked malts, and a bit of tart acidity jump out and are the dominant aromas. Not too much else

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a bit of fruity yeast mixed with the tart acidity and sour notes. Smoke starts out lightly but makes more of a presence once the fruity and tart notes die down. Smoke lingers well into the finish

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly chalky and acidic

O: I've never had a beer be both sour and smokey, so this was a nice first experience to the lichtenhainer weisse sub-style. I'm generally a fan of both sours and smoked beers, and this delivered on both ends. Worth a stab if you're into either individual styles

This pours a clear amber color in the Aventinus bulb glass with a big foam. It settles down to the ideal sudsy German mouthfeel. A little yeast at the bottom of the bottle.

Malty and wheaty with just a touch of tartness. The balance of sweet and sharp, smokey and spicy, is outstanding. Not as sweet as the bocks or dunkels. This is one of the best German beers I've had and I hope it's part of a quiet revolution to apply some Teutonic intelligence to their wealth of traditional beer styles.

I like the argument that Lichtenhainer should be its own style, as apparently it was historically, and not any sort of Berlinerweiss. There is no hint of lactobacillus. It has just a touch of the Hefe spice, but a distinct malty, grainy flavor with some perfumey notes. This is vastly more drinkable than any Berliner I've had, in any case, and I say if you see it you ought to try it. From the 500 ml bottle purchased at Bine & Vine in San Diego.

(Served in a teku)
A- This beer pours a slightly hazy deep apricot body with a thick snow white head that boils down a bit. It sticks in thick rings to the glass with each sip. There is a strong carbonation of tiny bubbles that trail up the glass.

S- The mellow alder wood aroma with some gentle smoke qualities has a nice tart hint with a faint hop note and some nice yeasty qualities in the finish. There is a nice bread crust malt note that comes through as it opens.

T- Nice bread dough note leads to an alder smoke hint that is mellow but lingers nicely through the flavor with a crisp green hint in the finish. There is a soft funky tartness that comes through in the finish as it warms a bit.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a tight little fizz on the tongue.

O- The nice wheat flavor with good smoke flavor is complimented by some funk tart hints. Every thing is balanced and mellow making this interesting and very tasty and sessionable.

Thanks to Kevin for sharing this at a tasting last week. Smoked berliner weisse, what the.

Pour is hazy bright orange with a very nice white head. Thick with good retention and lace.

Cool and interesting scent. Light fruity notes of peach, apple and lemon, some hay, earthiness, light smokiness. Surprisingly good mix.

The taste is a little less potent but maintains the same well-done and unique balance of flavors. More wheat/breadiness coming into play, light fruits, and light tart, farmy, smoky flavors.

Light mouthfeel with good carbonation. Easy drinking.

Definitely a strange idea but it works well here. Nice balance and the flavors don't clash.

Thanks to Hopswagger for this one.

1pint 9fl oz bottle served in a Southern Tier tulip

A - Pours a light burnt orange with a small cream colored head.

S - Smoked wheat grain, earthy, old lemons.

T - Lactic tartness upfront, lemon acidity, salty, all wrapped in smoke, dried fermented fruit, apricots and pear skin come to mind, grainy wheat runs right down the middle, smoke comes out more as it warms, Finishes tart and dry with an acidic bite at the end.

M - Effervescent carbonation lifts this off the palate creating fine fizzy bubbles. Light side of medium weight, dry tart finish.

Nice and refreshing. The smoke really didn't get in the way of the tartness like I thought it would. The nose was muted and didn't amaze me. Clean flavors with a solid finish. Good beer for food pairing.

Have heard things on and off about this for some time now. Finally getting around to trying it.

A- 500ml bottle poured into a snifter. Beer comes out somewhat murky with a golden-light amber color. A creamy texture white head forms to about a finger tall and retains pretty nicely. The creamy cap leaves a very silky robe of lace around most of the glass opposite of my sips. Very nice lacing.

S- Really not a very strong aroma to me, have to stress a bit to pick things up. Smoked malt, tart fruits and wheat bread are all I really get. Interesting but needs some more aromatics.

T- A combination of flavors I can't say I have really experienced. Tart grapes, apple fruit and smokiness are the primary flavors going on here. Banana, spicy raisin, wheat bread and some light malt sweetness in the background.

MF- Light to moderately thick body with a very silky carbonated feel. A bit of tartness and a tiny bitterness on the palate.

A smoked German beer with some tartness to it. This combination of flavors isn't going to cause a revolution but they work out better than I imagined. A decent beer that is worth a shot.

From: Binny's, Schaumburg, IL
Date: None on bottle
Glass: Weihenstephaner weizen glass

Abraxxxas is a fairly unique, easily drinkable, tart, smoked, German wheat ale. While those elements may not seem to go together well, they manage in this style, and all the elements are fairly well-balanced, none crowding another out. One to enjoy again when the mood strikes.

Pours a 2cm tall head of off-white foam, the bubbles small and densely packed, creating a smooth, meringue-like mass. Retention is excellent, the head very slowly dissipating to a cap of about 0.75cm atop the body of the beer. Lacing is also excellent, with a frosting of foam remaining around the entirety of the glass' inner walls. The body is a dark brown-orange color, with light bringing out pale yellow highlights amidst the still brown-orange base. The carbonation is visible, quite vigorous and numerous through, the opaque body.

Aroma is of somewhat faded campfire smoke, smoked malt (at least 70% of the base), though I'm unable to tell if it's beechwood-smoked barley, or oak-smoked wheat. There is a faint lactic-like tartness in the aroma as well, which cuts the smoke lightly.

The best way to describe the beer is straightforward: a mildly tart, mildly smoked, mild hefeweizen. Front of palate is sweet in a fairly straightforward way from the wheat malt, with modest campfire-like smokiness and a very light lactic tartness. Mid-palate first discovers the mild campfire smokiness, followed by a weizen-like wheat malt sweetness and baked apple-banana esters, which is then cut by a noticeable lactic tartness. Back of palate finds mild tartness; present, yet subdued smokiness; and even more subdued fruit esters and sweetness. Aftertaste is of smoky, acrid bitterness

Beer is medium-bodied, with carbonation of a medium-low intensity, resulting in a pleasantly full, slightly foamy, flowing mouthfeel. Closes very dry, as might be expected by the mild acidity of the beer, with modest stickiness remaining on the palate.

Lightly hazed blonde colour, ring of white head, not much in the way of lace. Smell is smoked with some fruity lemony citrus, fairly acidic nose though, mix of camp fire/bbq and light peat smoke consistantly. Taste is smokey with bit of acidic-tart fruit flavour, subtle bbq flavours, lemony, more smoke in the aftertaste. Medium carbonation, medium body, acidity is felt in the cheeks as well. Pretty good stuff here, interesting stuff here too, would drink this again gladly.

Thanks to Sebastian for breaking this out. Sampled on 4/10/2013 at Braustelle and described as a smoked Berliner Weisse. Pours a burnt orange hue with a 1/8th inch, loose, bright white head. Nose expresses citrus notes, primarily tangerines, yeast and candied fruit. Taste reveals slightly soured tangerines, the merest suggestion of smoked malt, apricot and a hint of lactose towards the finish. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a mild carbonation and a slightly milk texture. Not really spot on for the style, but amazingly drinkable; just a touch of sour and goes down extremely easy.

Pour is dark golden orange with heavy haze and a tight white head. Nose has a lot of lemon and golden fruits and golden raisins. Notes of lacto, cream, pear with a fair bit of smoke especially as it warms. Taste has a fair bit of lacto, there are bright golden fruits, pear, mango, lemon. Body is creamy with a cream flavor and light sourness in the finish with moderate carbonation. Body is a bit full and carb a touch low. The smoke comes in towards the back, nicely balanced and more present as the beer warms. Very interesting take on a Berliner, the lacto and smoke dominate the front and back with a nice bright fruit flavor.

A: Pours a hazy light amber with a fair amount of fizzy white head. The foam dissipates quickly to a fuzzy layer and a thicker rim around the glass, which leaves thin walls of lacing.

S: Bread pudding with caramel and yeasty wheat. Kinda weird at first but it grew on me after a few sips.

T: Bready sweetness with wheat and yeast. Mild hops towards the finish.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation.

Overall, nice, and has some slightly weird things going on. Worth a try, but not likely to become part of the regular rotation.

Bottle shared by Pino, 330ml into a tulip.

Filtered straw yellow, light head with almost no retention. Nose has light lemon and lactic notes, with a hint of a campfire. Tastes of lemon, wheat, smoked grains/an extinguished fire. Light feel, light carbonation. Tastey as is, and is more of a subtler Hopfenstark Boson de Higgs.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Gotta give it up for the resurrection (of sorts) of a nearly-lost style. This stuff pours a hazy pale straw topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises mildly-tart lemon zest, light coriander, light black pepper, light cracked wheat, and a hint of beech smoke in the background. I may or may not get a hint of juniper in there as well, but it's hard to tell for sure. The taste brings in more of the same, but that smoke is a bit more intense now; not very much, frankly, it's still just a minor pall on the absolute range, but it's enough to effectively color the second half of the proceedings here. Normally, I'm all for smoke like this, often even stronger, but here it begins as a clashing partner with the lemony bits and then as a silencer, a deadener, of the same. Things just don't work all that well together on my tongue. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, an interesting beer, for sure, but one that just doesn't quite do it for me.

From the bottle. Awesome labels on these guys by the way.

Appearance: Vibrant cloudy yellow with a huge perfectly fluffy white head.

Nose: Lively white grapes and pepper, artificial smoke, plenty of banana, a tiny hint of lactic sourness.

Taste: Smoke at first, but not the artifical or rubbery smoke you find in the nose. More like smoked salmon. There's a bit of lemon juice sourness and a nice clean, refreshing wheat crust finish. It's subtle in its complexity and unique in its flavor combinations.

Mouthfeel: Good and full carbonation, persistent head, good mouthfeel for the style.

Overall: The first time I had this I hated it. I had it again more recently and actually really enjoyed it. Not sure if my palate just changed or what, but this is definitely and interesting and excellent brew. It's a great modern take on a very ancient and forgotten style.

Freigeist Abraxxxas
16.9 oz. bottle with no apparent freshness dating.
$6.95 @ The Beer Shoppe in Ardmore, PA

The Freigeist Abraxxxas (not to be confused with their Abraxas with just one X), pours a cloudy orange-gold body beneath a full head of slightly-off white foam. The head retention is excellent, and it slowly dwindles from a very thick thumb of froth down to a more condensed pillow that's finger-thick, and then eventually to a creamy pencil-thin cap - half of that - and eventually a creamy collar and whispy surface covering as you sip at it. The lacing is equally impressive, and it initially leaves solid sheets of lace around the entire inside of the glass.

Smoke is clearly apparent in the nose, and it's reminiscent of the Beechwood that's so often used in Bamberg. Some mild tart and sweet fruit also sneaks through the foam, but there's not much more.

The flavor is tart upfront but it's not overly sharp. In fact, it's somewhat mild not unlike a fuji apple. Flavor-wise, it becomes somewhat lemony in the finish, but it doesn't have that lemony acid slap at the outset. And it's also naturally fruity from the yeast, with notes of apple, pear, and some very light fig. Some phenols enter as well, and it's got some some soft clove to it. Its sweetish malt offers some balancing support against the tart note, and it's grainy and a bit wheat-like, even becoming somewhat bready in the finish. The bitterness is firm, and just a bit more than balancing. Most important perhaps, is the smokiness. It's far from overdone, and hangs more like a delicate, thin veil across the entire flavor. It seems most solid across the middle, and as you go into the finish, but it quickly fades, leaving only a hint in the gently lingering, soft and dry finish. The missing component? Hops. Hop flavor is generally kept low in weissbiers, and it's at a very low level here. You will, however, find some mild earthy and leafy hops in the finish.

Possibly the most interesting thing about this beer is that it revives, in a way, a forgotten style; and in that way it's unique because it's so different from almost all of the other beers on the market. There are hundreds of years of German brewing history behind us, and I'd love to see more of these styles revealed. Hedonistically, the beer is also a treat. It offers both tartness and smokiness, two fairly unique characteristics these days, but at moderate, very accessible levels. It's interesting and entertaining, as well as refreshing and satiating. Absolutely worth seeking out!

Aromatics lead off with grass-rubbed lemons, smoked apples, and clove-studded bananas. Hints of wet hay and peach fuzz follow through.

Light bodied with a crisp, lush mouthfeel.

The palate starts with a tart brightness, smoke, and bananas. Apples and clovey phenols follow through.

Finishes with lingering smoke and tartness.

What a tasty, unique, and refreshing beer. The smoke and the tartness are both in check without being overdone.
