BJCP 27A

BJCP 2015 27A Lichtenhainer example
27A - Lichtenhainer

 

Overall Impression

A sour, smoked, lower-gravity historical German wheat beer. Complex yet refreshing character due to high attenuation and carbonation, along with low bitterness and moderate sourness.

Comments

Served young. Smoke and sour is an unusual combination that is not for everyone.
