Grimm Brothers Gustavus Lichtenhainer

Grimm Brothers Gustavus Lichtenhainer

Description

Gustavus is the second in our Six Soldiers of Fortune Series where we will feature historic German sour beers. It’s a traditional Litchenhainer with a sour flavor that blends with a noticeable smokey characteristic. The low alcohol provides easy drinkability but the smokiness add complexity. Hints of salt and bacon undertones, this is a very unique beer.

Grodziskie/Gose/Lichtenhainer

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.
