3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16.9oz bottle. Clear brownish red / orange color. One-finger off-white head. Great smokey nose, typical of schlenkerla. Soft, but bit stronger carbonation. Dry texture. Medium / lighter body. Thin layer of head retains. Leaves little loose lace. Wheat flavor, some of that german weizen yeast lends hints of banana that actually kind of works with the savory, meaty smokiness. Savory and sweet taste. Satisfying smoke beer to enjoy with breakfast, though I prefer schlenkerla’s heavier varieties.

Brown color with a creamy off-white head, good lasting and nice lacework. Aroma has notes of wood, light wheat and toasted malts. Flavor is toasty, slightly sweet, some yeasty notes and wooden traces. Slightly bittery in the final with wooden hints on palata with good duration.

0,5l fles gedeeld met Nikos. Geur rookvlees, beetje verbrand hout. Smaak is beetje het weizen maar de rook overheerst toch. Salmiak in de afdronk.

Tämä, jos joku, on erikoinen olut. Tuoksussa risteytyy savuoluen savuisuus vehnäoluille ominaiseen hiivaisuuteen ja vehnäisyyteen.

Bottle - bright copper with a pale brown large foamy head which gradually bubbles away. Aroma of smokey bacon, wheat and a hint of antiseptic with a little sourness. Taste of smoke, peat, bacon, wheat and hay with a little yeast and sourness in the finish. Medium heavy body with low carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2015 The pour is dark, hazy, slightly yellowish, colored like the fur of a Kodiak bear. Gorgeous and indicative of the immense depth of the beer. The smell is candied nuts, clove, a hint of banana, bacon bits, smoked sausage, and malted barley. It speaks of a beer that is as refreshing in the summer as it is interesting in the colder months. The mouthfeel is creamy, with a medium to thin body that dissipates into tiny bubbles with the touch of the tongue but isn’t overly effervescent. The taste is slightly bitter from the smoke and hops, lightly umami, with delicate, sweet, eatery spices rounding it out. Beautiful and versatile.

500 ml. bottle @ home. Procured from Dranken Geers. BBF 03/2015. Small GUSHER. Resulting in a first glass that was almost entirely just foam. Very dark amber, brown, slightly off-white huge head. Wonderful lacing. Nose is huge delicious Schlenkerla smoke, huge amounts of thick umami smoke, smoked wood,…. Incredible. Taste is banana upfront, leading into sweetish meaty smoke, Black Forest ham, German yeast, branches, Schlenkerla smoke, interesting mix of very sweet banana & smoke, cooked brown apples, lots of smoke & lots of caramel, faint fish guts, brown sugar. Caramel body. Drinks like water. Not sure if it entirely blends both characteristics but it is a highly unique and delicious offering all the same.

Érdekes módon nekem ez jobban ízlik mint a marzen, nem annyira hívalkodóan búvik elő a szalonnazsír.
