Hitting shelves now is a new Lips of Faith release from New Belgium. For this offering, the brewery teamed up with Three Floyds to make hard to come by , smokey Polish style offering. The beer is gratzer, featured oak-smoked wheat.
It’s not dead, but Gratzer is definitely a long-buried style from Poland. And together with 3Floyds we have unearthed the best of beer zombies. Full of bold flavors from oak-smoked wheat, and along with Midnight Wheat, this beer presents a pure black pour. A subtle, spicy note from the Polish Lublin hops hides in the aroma, just below the dark and smoky surface. Despite all appearances, the Gratzer is very drinkable at 4.5% ABV, and walks itself with a nice, light body. Cheers to drinking smoky, undead beers. Prost!
Hops: Target, Polish Lublin
Malts: Pale, Midnight Wheat, Oak-Smoked Wheat
Availability: 22oz Bombers, Draft. June, 2014
