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.

Cloudy dark orange with a huge beige head. Massive smoked ham aroma which dominates everything else about this beer. Slightly citric and sour taste but it doesn’t linger. Thickly textured.

Bottle. High and lasting off-white had. Hazy orange body. Powerful smoke aroma. Astonishingly sweet and mild smoke flavor.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2006
A Mes rate: 50cl bottle from Quinns. Another great Bamburg rauch. Aroma is, according to Sim, that of Austrian smokey cheese feet. I am inclined to agree but it is nice enough. Honestly. The smoke is not as heavy as in the Marzen and especially not the Urbock. Looks wise it’s chunky and dark just again not quite as much as the others. In the mouth it’s like a mix of a chunky dunkel weiss, a good quality dark lager and then that trademark Bamburg smoke that (for me) is always awesome. It gives it a wonderful prickly mouthfeel. Being such a regular drinker of the Marzen, the addition of a bit of weissery makes a refreshing change.

Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of smoke and citrus. The flavor is smokey, citrus, and sweet malts. Good beer.

fonefan (42888) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2006
Bottle. Dark amber muddy color with a huge off-white head. Mild smoky aroma initially apparent and banana wheat flavours are hidden subtly underneath that. Slightly sweet Flavor is smoky and salty with only a hint of bitterness.

AskForJenny (1062) - Ontario, New York, USA - SEP 5, 2006
0.5l bottle - Amber color with some nice lace. The nose tells you what you are in for, since this beer smells and tastes like a big glass of bacon. There are smoke and pork notes here with little else. It really needs to be food accompaniment, as the flavors of the beer are powerful without overpowering. Really, really unique in an incredibly positive way.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - SEP 5, 2006
A smoked aroma clearly dominates. The color is a dark amber with a slight tan head. While the flavor of the whead comes through mildy a smoked flavor is clearly the main element.

nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 2, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2008 Bottle (Thanks to Todd, again). Smells like bacon, with lots of woodiness, and earthiness. Muddy brown color with a white head. Flavor is smoky and salty with only a hint of bitterness. Totally unique, the smell just blows me away, so very different. Palate is nice, despite its salty character, it’s still very fresh. A beer totally worth having. Rerate - great early fall beer. Many more piney and herbal notes than I remember.

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2006
Bottle. Dark amber coloured with a huge off-white head. Slightly thin in palte. Smokey and sweet. I’m a big fan of smoked beer - but this one dosent really "fit".
