Lichtenhainer with Cherry Plums

We’re crazy about the rare and forgotten German beer called lichtenheiner, so we brewed it again. It is a pale, light and sour beer made using fire-dried malt. The tradition calls for the wood-fired oven, but this time we’ve added peated malt (like the one the scots use for their beloved whisky). This unique malt is heavier one the smoky side, which, together with the intense acidity, creates a wonderful base for the aromas of cherry plum. This fruit is rarely used in beers, but it grows in abundance in our neighbourhoods, so it comes as no surprise that we paired it with our sour ale. Its juicy aroma and tart taste with hints of plum, apricot and unripe cherry emphasize the sour and smoky taste of lichtenheiner, making this beer even more drinkable and refreshing. All hail the autumn orchards of our grandmas!
