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.

Metalchopz (2626) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy deep amber colour with a big creamy-frothy warm cap, great retention and very nice creamy full lacing. Big burnt wood aromas at first pour. Then, some banana notes from the weiss comes out as the smoke calms down. The taste is kind of sweet with the smoke on the side. Doesn’t really sit well. Notes of maple sap in the finish. Not a fan of the mix. Much preferred their marzen version.

Pudelek (112) - Gůrny Ślůnsk / Oberschlesien, - JUN 2, 2015
Moje pierwsze piwo wędzone i od razu szok, że takie dobre! Po otwarciu czuć zapach ogniska lub bekonu, podobnie jak po pierwszych łykach, towarzyszy nam do końca :) Ogólnie to kapitalne piwo z Bambergu!

LordBrew (77) - Ziemnice, POLAND - MAY 24, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2015 Aromat ogniska, palącego się drewna, bardzo wędzony, lekko goździkowy, ogólnie potężny. Piana słaba jak na weizena, kolor ciemno-brunatny, bardzo zmętnione, kompletnie nieprzejrzyste. Smak - typowe weizenowe smaki ale daleko w tle za smakami wędzonymi. Wysokie wysycenie. Nawet gdzies tam w tle lekka goryczka. Bardzo drożdżowe. Bardzo silne nuty ogniskowe, szynkowe. Bardzo pijalne. Miażdży ryj kilkusetletnią tradycją. Potężne. Wybitne.

The beer poured a reddish-brown with a half inch thin white head. The aroma was baked ham, smoke, and weak floral hops. The mouthfeel was medium to full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is wheat, smoked wood, and baked ham. Quite good.

huineman (423) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 8, 2015
Pours cloudy amber-golden, almost no head. Simple yet intense aromas: smoke, coal, caramel. Medium body, a little watery. Smoke on the water... I mean on the aftertaste (I had to do it). Simple but nice.

I’m going to go about rating this beer different than usual. It’s not about the first sip, which is all salty smoke sausage, it’s about the taste after acclimatizing to the sausage-fest flavour and then enjoying the ride. Once I’m over the sausage-smack to the face, you begin to pick up a nice sweetness that helps balance out the smoke blast, with softer hay malts that undoubtedly is thanks to the unsmoked wheat in this brew. Overall not bad, but not a sipper, commit and enjoy.
