Yeastie Boys / Urbanaut Brucing With Stu (440ml Can)
This Yeastie Boys + Urbanaut collaboration beer is a little different. It’s an old German style called Lichtenhainer, known for being smokey and sour. In our version we added char grilled lemons, lemongrass and juniper berries to the kettle. Think of it as a BBQ charred lemon marmalade beer. Bloody delicious, with a refreshing tang and perfect for summer.
Sour wheat beers were common in many parts of medieval and early Industrial Europe. Two styles – lambic and Berliner weisse – survived, but many others did not. Gose and Lichtenhainer are historic styles of sour wheat beer. Grodzisk is sometimes tart, sometimes not. Gose is seasoned with salt, Grodziskie and Lichtenhainer contain smoked malt. Historical sources are mixed about Lichtenhainer containing wheat, so modern interpretations may vary. Grätzer is an alternative name for Grodziskie. All three will be relatively low alcohol, with a strong wheat character, but will be distinct from classic examples of Berliner Weisse or lambic. As all we have are historical recreations, substantial differences may exist between interpretations.
