Notes/Commercial Description:
Its not dead. But Gratzer is definitely a long-buried style from Poland. Together with 3Floyds we unearthed its robust smokiness with oak smoked wheat and midnight wheat. Polish Lublin hops for a bitter bite and lacto for a slightly sour finish, this pours out a billowing, foamy mouth worth indulging.

Black colored beer with a medium sized brown colored head.

Smells smoky and slightly sour. Roasted grain and toasted wheat bread scents. Smells greatly like campfire toasted sourdough bread.

Starts out smoky and slightly sour with a burnt sugar taste. Mineral water flavors. Sourness is slight. Sourness comes at the start and at the end of the flavor profile.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall an interesting and tasty beer. This is about 1/2 way between Schwartzbier and Rauchbier.

Pours very dark to near black, some haze, and tan colored head. Lace settled to a thin layer. Nose had a nice smoked bready aroma that had hints of cooked bacon. Palate was surprisingly light in flavor, moderate smoke presence, bready, some good hop balance, and a toasty finish. Very drinkable. Wish I had Gouda in the fridge to pair.
