Smokey bacon taste. And not in a good way. Did not enjoy this at all.

A seemingly odd combination of rauchbier and Berliner Weisse, but it works fairly well. Tart and smokey elements mix together well thanks to a restrained use of smoked grains. Time for other brewers to revive this old style brew.

Contract brewed by Brauerei Goeller, Zeil am Main. The lack of a big weisse style head surprised me - perhaps the bottle was old? Overall, I found it an intriguing combination. Interesting to try, not sure I would drink it regularly.

Pours from the bottle cloudy grainy hazy golden with a one finger white head. Aroma is weird! Smokey wheat and spice, yeast funk. Flavor is fruited smoked bacon, apple, hint of yeast and spice. A smoked brew for sure. Light medium body with plenty of carbonation. Lingering smoke. This is weird. Not bad, but a strange combo of light weisse and dark smoke.

Smoked lichtenhainer weisse, sour and tart wheat based smoked beer. $6 at CBX in Charleston.
A: pours a deep and rich honey yellow, thick one finger bright white foam head, some spotty lacing, some carbonation, and some sediment.
S: sour Oak wood, musty grass or hay, grass pollen, lemon, medicinal herbs, light smokiness but I'm not sure how the smokiness is introduced
M: medium and thin towards the finish, creamy carbonation on the tongue.
T: tart and wheat like the label says, lemon, citrus, sour Oak, hay, pepper, light golden grain
O:interesting smoked weisse beer, okay and I would drink more but seek out as must have, complex flavor and aroma brings enjoyment when rating this beer.
