Notes: This specially unfiltered edition retains the natural haziness and the yeast with its fresh and smoky character. A rare and special treat, not only for smokebeer lovers.

The colour is yellow, the liquid clear. The three-finger head is white and airy, and it sinks slowly dowl leaving massive amounts of thick lacing on the glass. Lots of bubbles are visible in the liquid.

The smell got distinct delicatessen smoke flavours, although on a lower level than the proper smoke beers from this brewery. It is quite sweet with some bread and herbal hops. Hints of metal and fresh flowers.

The taste is balanced with French loaf, creamy malt flavours and slowly growing hay hops. There is a smooth delicatessen smokiness, too. It is quite dry. Light to medium body. The aftertaste is rather light and dry with some salty smoked sausages, floral hops, low to medium clean bitterness and a hint of butter. The finish is fresh with bread and smoke.

The carbonation is medium strong, lots of small smooth bubbles. The liquid is smooth.

Not as in-your-face smoky as most of the Schenkerla beers. Highly balanced and quaffable.
