Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: avalon07 on 05-26-2012

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

This is our interpretation of a Grätzer, which is a traditional German style smoked wheat brewed with lots of hops and 90% oak smoked wheat malt. The result is a spritzy, smokey and refreshing ale.

650 mL bottle poured into a plastic cup.

Appearance - Deep golden body. Huge white head.

Smell - Smoky. Bright wheat. Weird.

Taste - Bright citrus. Wheat grain. Smokey. Bitter in the back.

Mouthfeel - Very light, but quite bitter. Smokiness detracts a bit.

Overall - Well, I guess this is what it's supposed to taste like, but I don't get it.

A- hazy orange with a large soapy white head.
S- wheat, clove, earthy hops, and basil.
T- earthy bitter hops, wheat, faint smoke, burnt corn, and grassy.
M- moderate carbonation and light body, dry finish.
O-This was a strange one for me. I was expecting a lot more smokiness and received a lot of earth tones instead. I would have to dive deeper into the style to appreciate it.
