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.

Bottle poured into glass: Off white head, Aroma was that, like smoked ham; Appearance was dark and a little cloudy Flavor was very smoky barely could tell it was a wheat, Palate was smooth, but the after taste was a smoky flavor like I just got a whiff of electrical wires burning. Overall I was disappointed, the smokiness was over whelming. I want recommended it, but I want discourage anyone from trying it. To eache his own.

Bottle at the brewery. Cloudy dark copper colour with a risch offwhite head. Prominent banana nose. Banana meets smoke in a happy marriage. Fizzy. Dry mouthfeel. Original.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - OCT 30, 2006
(500 ml bottle from Tullyís) Pretty good but probably my least favorite of the 4 Schlenkerlas Iíve had...Pours dark hazy iced tea brown with a huge tan head. A huge head actually developed in the bottle as well. Big aroma of smoked meat turning more to just sweet woodsmoke as head recedes. Palate feels kind of thin although Iíd probably call this medium-bodied cause itís got some backbone. Mouthfeel kind of drying as well esp. in finish. Flavor is smoky and a little sweet, kind of like smoked meat. A slight bit ashy. There is a little hint of banana on the back end as well. OK but Iíll take my Urbock.

I preferred the Weizen compared to the Marzen. I tasted more smoky flavours and the beer match very well with a smoked tasty cheese. Very creamy texture and well balanced beer. The smoky finish reminds me a Mechoui or smoked pork.

A tamed vartion of the marzen but still a great beer. Somek cheese and ham as usual but the wheat takes it away abit. A serious amount of sediment in the bottle also.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Bottle - Pours murky brown wtih a fair offwhite head that fades pretty quickly but laces a little after that. Aromas of smoke mostly but underneath some caramel and a touch of bannana. Flavor is good smokiness, like smoked sausage, some yeast, some bannana, and a little spice. Medium body and slightly acidic on the finish.

Wow what a smoke beer! I have tryed this in a bottle and on tap. Bottle, was good smokey and thick, like a fine cigar or something like that. it makes you want to sip and enjoy the experiance. but then I just reciently tried it on tap at Maxís, wow was it smokey, it tasted like sausage in a bottle, i donít know why they tasted so differant to me, the draft was too smokey, it was just kind of harsh.
