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.

Pours a slightly hazy brownish pour with huge head. Tons of bbq and hickory with some bacon and smoke. A bit of fruit pie too. Medium body hickory taste. Decent length. Pretty good.

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 (417) - 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.

Vestergaard (912) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - APR 26, 2015
Bottle @Fermenteam tasting! Thanks to Lukas&Alex! Pours a hazy, Dark brown with a medium sized, off White head. Aroma is really smokey with some fruity notes. Banana, peat, leathery dry, smokey wood. Taste is not as all so smokey, but has sweet wheat fruity notes. Slight caramel, slight leather. A treat indeed! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Old rating. Don't like this one as much as the other Aecht beers. Thinner. Still has nice rich ham and campfire profile but the wheat body doesn't hold up as well. Still tasty.

DCLawyer (1866) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2015
Bottle->lager. Murky chestnut brown with big frothy offwhite head. Ugly. A: smoke, wheat, grains, earth. T: same, with a lingering smoky aftertaste. Not as deep as Schlenkerla’s other rauchbiers.

Spab (2806) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a murky copper/brown with modest-sized, lasting eggshell-coloured head. Aroma is gentle smokiness, banana, tree fruit, wheat and light spice. Flavour is pleasantly smoky with wheat, some banana, a little plum and mild spice. Fine carbonation gives a nice texture. Nice one.
