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.

jjsint (2126) - 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.

One of the best beers I’ve tasted, tasty but not too intensive. I would drink that every day

Bottle. Dark brown colour, cloudy, rocky head, not as big as usually seen in hefe-weizen. Aroma is intensive, but not aggressive, smoke like bonfire wood, quite much banana, dough. Light bitterness. Not harsh, interesting combination. Very good.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Dark, hazy copper coloured with a large foamy white head. It has a malty, slight toffee and very powerful smoked beechwood flavour followed by a smooth leather, slight nutty, oak and smoked finish. Very nice.

szeli (243) - GERMANY - FEB 26, 2016
Sehr leckeres Rauchbier, Weizen schmeckt man recht wenig heraus. Leichte Malzsüße, danach ein wenig Banane zu erahnen. Im Anschluss viel Rauch, welcher lange im Mund bleibt. Stark

Bottle; pours dark brown with a white head; aroma of smoke, wheat, and a hint of banana; taste is smoked bacon, wheat, and banana; dry smoky finish; the smoke aroma and flavor are present but not quite as dominant as their other beers but this is still very nice
