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.

Aroma of banana, smoke, a little bit of fresh plum. Dark orange color, beer was clear before pouring the yeast in. Was more bitter than i expected, but still not very much. Kinda smoky bitterness.

Zoigl (13) - Flossenbürg, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUL 10, 2016
0.5l Bottle. Pours cloudy, brown colour. Nose is typical "Schlenkerla": smoky, caramel, malt. Very well balanced taste, not too smoky, a little sweetness. Full bodied, very nice drinkability. Must try!

thought I was picking up the urbock which I have tried and like; won’t do that again - disliked this and didn’t even finish the bottle. aroma - some nice smoke and some unpleasant wet rag and stinkiness. taste wasn’t much better - funky, stanky end. out.

anstei (1051) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUN 20, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Smoked bacon aroma, but not as intense as others. Has that clear weizen texture without the yeast-forwardness. Meaty throughout. Full-bodied, a bit oily. Nice.

oliodnb (661) - ITALY - JUN 20, 2016
50cl bottle. Pours hazy dark amber with a beautiful thick off white sticky head. Aroma is light sweet malts, grain, wood smoke. Taste has the smoked note less pronounced with a good balance with the refreshing weizen flavor (banana, spices) that comes out in the finish along with the smoke again. Light body, medium carbonation. Surprisingly good.

jsporrer (626) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Pours a clear iced tea brown with a thin white ring. Nice smoky aroma. Descent smoked flavors with a somewhat tangy finish. OK but not as good as the other styles.

on tap @ Schlenkerla / Bamberg Germany --- Nearly opaque amber brown color, smooth white head that drops to 1/2", splotches of lace. Taste is clear malt that has medium fizz, spice (especially coriander), then after the swallow, a hint of hops followed by light smoke that slowly strengthens as everything else fades. Surprisingly solid, awfully big and filling, but it is effective. I could drink it again.

midovark (506) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - JUN 13, 2016
0.5 l bottle @ Green Sheep Bar. Hazy, deep amber color. Its aroma and taste is a fine mix of weizen and smoked characteristics. A bit thin on body and has a short finish. Otherwise it’s fine.
