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.

Unclear brown with fantastic large, dense head. Smoke, wheaty-banana, acidic, fresh. I would say this is THE beer for a summer barbecue...

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2005 Hazy dark copper hue with foamy head and excellent lace. The aroma hints of smoked meats (duh), with sublime banana, lemon, and spices. The taste is very unique indeed. While you can get a dose of the smoked flavors, the weizen characteristics can still be found underneath. Nice citric balance to the powerful smoke. The finish displays a strange yeasty note. The mouthfeel is lively and refreshing. Different for sure and neat to try and worth a drink ever once in a while.

I didn't get the banana aroma everyone else mentions. I got a strong and I mean strong aroma of smoked salmon. Big quickly dissipating bubbles. The taste reminded me of smoked salmon. I felt like I was drinking a light beer in the still smouldering burnt remains of a salmon plant. Light body, no yeast or wheat flavour. I have never had a beer that tasted so much like liquid smoke. Underlieing liquid is water not beer. The smoke flavour lasts long after the glass is empty.

Smokey, but blends better than with Marzen. Slightly cloudy, white head. Smoke element overshadows rest of flavours so you do not have much beyond that. To bad, it is lacking in balance ..

Hazy amber colour with a big off-white head. Interesting aroma with smoke as well as "wheat" and sweet fruits (bananas). The flavour is "only" lightly smokey and hence fairly easy to drink (albeit I expect many people would disagree). I had this nice and unusual beer with smoked salmon - not a bad match.

Smokey fruit aroma, orange/copper colour, with a slim custard head. Tastes of smoke, peat, banana and mild sausage. Well balanced, hearty texture. Terrific! Thanks to frielock for getting this for me to share at jercraigs.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2004
Nice tall off-white head on a hazy amber body. Really nice balanced aroma of smoke and banana! Also a lot of banana and smoke in the flavor - quite fresh and fruity. A complex beer and definately more my taste than the Marzen!

The aroma is of tar and rope - much like the Märzen. The color is amber and it has a beutiful head. The flavor is lovely of smoke, tar, rope, and malt. A very nice beer.

hazy brown color with a brown head. The taste is wheaty fresh with notes of yeast, citrus and light smoke

Fully hazy dark amber; amberish head, stable. Smoked ham, open woodfire, roasted chestnut, and something else - I'd say wheat, but that's foreknowledge. And again fried bacon rinds. Taste is a sourish version of fried bacon rinds. the sourishness this time is unmistakably wheat. Well-bodied, not very refreshing. I just love Rauchbier. I'm somewhat less taken with Weizen, but a good refreshing Hefe is never amiss. But the combination... it just keeps clashing. Each to his own.
