A very interesting Berliner Weisse/sour ale hybrid.. The aroma is that of funk, fruit, and grass, very complex , reminiscent of a dewy field. There is a major shock upon taking the first sip, as the taste and smell differ vastly. The taste has a strong Berliner muskiness upfront and a thin, lactic finish. Hints of smoke and dryness in the mouthfeel..Very curious brew.. Would love another go at this. (402 characters)

This is the big, smoked brother of Freigeist Abraxas. The same dark green 0.75cl capped sparkling wine type bottle being used.

Given to me by Sebastian, one of the brewers, thanks again.

Poured into Berlinerweiss bowl, a Westmalle chalice and a Grolsch 'Het Canon' cup.

Cloudy, moody and murky, a Jaffa Cake marmalade colour, no head to talk of.

The smell was of burnt peat, old ash trays and grapefruit!

The taste was of weak smoked ham, acidic, but not vinergarous, sour, bitter and fairly dry. The grapefruit from the aroma also came into the flavours.

I found the beer interesting, but 'not my cup of tea'. (616 characters)
