Fredersdorfer by Seedstock Brewery is a Fredersdorfer and is being evaluated as a Historical Beer (category 27 in the 2015 BJCP Beer Style Guidelines). The Historical Beer category is a catch-all category for styles that have all but died out in current times; no subcategory exists for the Fredersdorfer style.  Fredersdorfer is a historical style from 1830s Berlin. Fredersdorfers are strong wheat beers brewed with molasses and occasionally orange peel. Fredersdorfer measures in at 7.5% ABV. 

Fredersdorfer pours light-amber in color with excellent clarity and a medium, retentive tan head. The aroma is moderate toasty and bready malt with a hint of smoke and herbal hops. The mouthfeel has a medium body with moderate carbonation and a light creaminess. The flavor is moderately bready alongside toasty malt with moderate molasses; a hint of smoke and light spicy hops complement the malt. The beer finishes moderately bitter with a lingering maltiness of bready, molasses and a hint of smoke.

Fredersdorfer is a very interesting beer that takes us back to 19th century Germany. This is a very pleasant style that complements bready malts with molasses and packs a little a punch at 7.5% ABV. Check out this style as a window to our past, and enjoy this well-brewed beer along the way. Prost!
