Smoked beer has its origins in the Franconian city of Bamberg. The smoked malt is dried over a beech fire in a tradition that pays tribute to pre 19th century malt production.
Classic smoked beers tend to have an extremely dominant smoked taste, which is often regarded as overpowering. With Roog, the smoked wheat beer of the BraufactuM collection, the smoky note has been toned down while preserving the distinctive character of this kind of beer. The threeway combination of smoked beer, wheat beer and special malt aromas comes together in perfect harmony.
Reddish brown color, cloudy, moderate head. Makes a capricious, completely unique impression: hints of orange zest, clove and banana are overlaid with smoky notes like those found in juniper ham. These are in turn mellowed by roasted almonds. The finish is slightly bitter.
