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.

Hazy brown. Large, foamy, rocky, off white head. Nose is smoke, burnt wood, wheat, clove, yeast. Smells great. Flavor is more of the same, less smokey than the urbock or marzen, more smokey than the helles. Smoked wheat aftertaste. Medium/light, balanced body. Very drinkable, but you still have to be in the mood for a smoke beer, unlike the helles which I could drink anytime. Has enough flavor subtleties that it should be enjoyed with more mild foods.

bottle from chevy chase. aroma: malt, bacon, but less obtrusive than in the marzen. some tart cherries in the aroma as well. flavor is suprisingly sour, with smoke, a little malty sweetness as well. definitely seems like it might’ve been a case of an infected bottle, as the intense sourness I experienced doesn’t seem to be representative. still gotta rate it low, though.

Braudog (6066) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 24, 2006
Bottle: Gargantuan head over a light brown brew. Wow, what an aroma ... big and smoky, yet with that weizeny yeast basis. What an interesting twist of a beer. Definite smoky character with a nice yeasty base. Only weakness: a bit watery.

Nice brown body with a heavy tan head, even when poured smoothly. Good ham aroma, clean smokiness that’s a bit sharper than the others by Heller. Bitter sweetness is evident in the body, more of a fruit accent than the other varieties. Nice tangy, almost cheese like ending.

Pours a dark mahogany, long lasting head. By far the most disgusting beer I have ever tasted. I would drink any shit beer thrown at me before I could ever drink this again. The aroma alone made me gag, it smelled like the bottom of my charcoal grill and not in a good way, right then I knew I was in for it. I tookd one sip and immediately ran to the sink and started gagging, did not puke but close, then poured the whole thing out. This is and hopefully will be the lowest rating I ever give, I can’t believe anybody would like this.

19 Feb 06 - Big smokey wood malt aroma. Cloudy brown-red colour, good head and lacing. Sweet malt with a huge wood flavour. Smooth, nice mouthfeel with a smokey finish. Quite a unique beer, although it is not a style for me.

Murky ruby topped by a off-white head. The aroma is of course very smoky and meaty. A little bit of esthery banana certainly separates this one from the brewer’s other beers. The flavor is smoked bananas. Yum. Medium-light palate with a lingering smoke aftertaste. Pretty good but I like the other better, especially the Marzen and Fastenbier.

Aroma is smoked bacon and banana. Very cloudy, sort of a dirty dark amber, nice head. Taste is very smoked bacon initially, but there’s a lot of other flavors going on, ripe bananas among others -- these things are beyond my powers of deScription. The smokiness lingered a long time after drinking -- something I found quite enjoyable. For some reason, the entire experience made me crave some good lox. Certainly not an everyday beer -- a real treat.
