COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schlenkerla Smokebeer Wheat is an ale with light smoky aroma. As Bavarian wheat beers, it is being brewed with a mixture of both barley malt and wheat malt. The portion of barley malt is hereby a classic Schlenkerla smokemalt, while the wheat malt remains unsmoked. Served unfiltered with its natural haziness, Schlenkerla Wheat reaches its full aroma through bottle fermentation with fine top fermenting yeast.

cokolwiek11 (300) - POLAND - APR 13, 2016
Murky brown with big white head. Aroma: a lot of smoke, smoked ham. A little bit of banana. Cloves. Taste: light sour, medium sweet. Pretty present bitter on finish (as for rauchweizen of course). Flavours of hint of banana, cloves and very long, very smoky finish Palate: light to medium body, medium to high carbonation. Very long finish Overall: I like it alot. That’s the way very strongly smoked rauchweizen should taste, altough, because of strong smokiness its not as drinkable.

Fisler (351) - Bamberg, GERMANY - APR 13, 2016
Sehr dunkel im Glas, leicht brockig, Achaum kippt sofort weg, sehr feinporig. In der Nase eine feine Schinken-Salami-Platte. Im Trunk davon nur leicht, leicht süß, im Abgang kommt dann das Rauchmalz deutlicher zur Geltung - da will man gleich ne zünftige Vesper. Lecker!

Cthulhu (782) - MARSHALL ISLANDS - APR 8, 2016
50 cl bottle. The yeast on the bottle caught me off guard and I poured a bit on the glass.(It’s going to impact the whole rating )Extra cloudy dark orange/light brown colour. Light smoked aroma with notorious yeast presence. Slighty smoked and roasted with a very subtle sweetness. Long bitter finish. Medium body with light/medium carbo. It makes you sated I think I’m going to skip the "Spargel in Schinken" for dinner.

Ambro206 (350) - ITALY - APR 3, 2016
Una bella birra scura con cappello abbondante da weizen. Aromi affumicati e leggermente tostati. Poca l’estrosità che ti aspetteresti dai lieviti adatti a questo stile di birra. Buona beverinità e nel complesso una birra non cattiva ma non sorprendente.

From elcervecero. In Bavaria glass. Playing South Park Stick of Truth. Good aroma. Cant say that Ive liked its taste but didnt have to thrown it to the sink. Maybe im getting used to smoked ones or maybe this is better than others

ndburns (68) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2016
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours a clear copper with a foamy white head. Smoke dominates the aroma, hints of wheat coming through. Taste is wheat, banana, with a lingering smokiness. Nice and smooth, quite drinkable.

Drebin87 (1) - RUSSIA - MAR 25, 2016 does not count
Very contradictory beer. This is weizen, but the taste is not similar to weizen - due to the beer is smoked. Aroma is nice - smoke, bonfire, a little banana.

jjsint (2043) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2016
500ml bottle at the St Neots ’Booze on the Ouse’ Beer Festival 2016. Mid- to dark brown, hazy. No head but quite a lot of fizzy carbonation. Oaky aroma with stone fruit. Taste is sweet and malty, and the wheat holds the smoke incredibly well. Starts out OK but just gets better and better. Full lip-smacking body. Excellent.
