Radeberger Gruppe USA announced the release of Braufactum, a line of eight micro-brewed beers from Germany. The first beer in the collection to make its debut was Roog, a smoked wheat beer. With 6.6 percent alcohol by volume, Roog features notes of orange zest, clove and banana, which are overlaid by flavors of juniper, wood-smoked ham and a hint of candied almonds, the company says. A 330-ml bottle has a suggested retail price of $11.
