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.

Bien sûr c’est épatant.Le fumé est délicieux.Cependant, je suis gêné par l’acidité donnée à la chose.Trop acide pour le genre.

Moravius (597) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2014 Wiederholungstest: Flasche vom Markgrafen-Getränkemarkt in Bamberg, MHD: 1/2015. - Tiefdunkles Kupferrot, trüb (nach Aufrühren der Hefe vom Flaschenboden). - In der Nase das typische Schlenkerla-Raucharoma (Schwarzwälder Schinken, Geräuchertes), dunkelmalzige Karamelsüße und eine leicht bananige Note. - Im Antrunk gehört der erste Augenblick dem Rauchmalz, das aber sogleich von unerwartet herber Säuerlichkeit mit beinahe schroffen zitronigen Zügen verdrängt wird. Dazu eine schwache Kräuternote (Basilikum?), ein Restchen Karamelsüße und ein Hauch von fauliger Banane. Gut rezent, erfrischend. Im Abgang ein wenig Rauch, ein wenig Hopfenherbe und immer noch pointierte Säuerlichkeit. - Beim zweiten Anlauf finde ich diese Kombination von Rauch, Banane und Säure zwar nicht mehr beinahe ungenießbar wie beim ersten Mal, aber immer noch äußerst gewöhnungsbedürftig. Vor allem die deutliche Säure ist für ein deutsches Weizenbier ganz ungewöhnlich. Aber man gewöhnt sich daran ...

Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Weizen. OK, I am kind of biased because I love smoked beers and I seem to like everything out of Aecht Schlenkerla. This one is no different. Beautiful brown pour with a thick tan head emitting a smoky aroma although lacking complexity. Taste is a nice balance between wheat notes (bubblegum mostly) and smoke. Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Weizen is delicious to the last drop. Enjoy with meats!

Not bad weizen beer. But it’s smoked to the bones :) Definitely not my style.

Can’t belief I never rated this! Copper body, bubbly off white head. Beautiful smoked malts, refined and intriguing. Super drinkable, actually some nice sweetness to balance those drier smoked malts. A true classic, not as rich and interesting as some of the brewer’s others, but greay body. (50cl bottle at La Sous-Bock)

Formou um colarinho poderoso! Consistente, castanho e volumoso. Liquido turvo e cor de mel. Aroma salgado, de carnes defumadas. Perfeitamente dentro do estilo proposto. Um pouco de alcool. Sabor suave, pouco encorpada. Doce rapidamente no início, indo para um salgado agradável e defumado. Sem resquícios de cinzas. Não senti gosto de banana nem de chocolate, como era esperado. Senti um toque suave de cacau, não de chocolate. Mas mesmo assim considero uma ótima representante do estilo Rauchbier, porém não da Weissen. Retrogosto agradável, defumado, persistente.
