Notes/Commercial Description:
Casimir was brewed by Mike Siegel, Brian Davis, and Jason Karras who decided to give nod to Polish brewing traditions after learning they all have Polish heritage. Taking inspiration from the Grodziskie, a Polish oak-smoked wheat beer, they smoked their own wheat with used Bourbon County Stout oak barrel staves at the local Chicago Hagen's Fish Market.

With Polish rye bread in mind, they added caraway seeds to the whirlpool along with Polish Lublin hops. Casimir takes it's name after Casimir Pulaski who is known to Chicago school children because they get Casimir Pulaski Day off!

Appearance: Dark red; much darker than I expected. A bit flat looking.

Smell: Licorice and some other spices. Definitely smell caraway and coriander.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Moderate levels of licorice and yeast comprise the flavor here, which also creates a crisp, medium-bodied mouthfeel with great active carbonation.

Overall: Very nice, but it ultimately tries to hard to be an authentic German smoked beer.
