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.

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.

I really like the Aecht Marzen, but not so sure about this. It is one of the least visually attractive beers I’ve had - flat and cloudy brown, like washing up water after scrubbing out burnt pans. But it has that wonderful smoked sausage aroma, like nothing else in the beer world. Taste is a blend of banana cake and smokiness - not bad. But it’s pretty watery and unsubstantial in the mouth. Not a favourite.

Spezifarben, matschfarben im Glas, schaumig. In der Nase rauchig, hefig, weizig, interessante und gute Balance. Am Gaumen hefig, weizig, rauchiger Nachgeschmack, weniger intensiv als das Märzen. Normaler Körper.

Bottle. Dark ruby with a 2 finger white head. Aroma is campfire and fruit. Taste follows and adds wheat and clove. Thin sticky mouthfeel. Not terrible but also not a combination of flavors I love.

danielecamo (423) - ITALY - AUG 29, 2014
Alla spina. Aroma di frumento, banana, affumicato. Rispetto alla classica marzen, molto meno beverina. L’affumicato apportato alla weizen non mi convince del tutto.

kapusil (592) - HUNGARY - AUG 25, 2014
0.5l bottle. Hazy dark orange/brown body, off-white head. Aroma of smoke, caramel and peach. Taste of toast, smoke, banana and some floral hops. One of my favourite from their sortiment. The combination of the fruity weizen character and the smoke makes it quite unique.

Hazy brown color, huge off-white head. Smoky and meaty aroma aside from banana, yeast and wheat. Watery, light bodied, lively carbonation. Meaty finish. Expected more.

ciaranc (851) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 9, 2014
Draught at The Norseman. Cloudy amber, nice white head, lasts ages. Mad smoked salmon and charcoal nose. Flavour sweet malt, backed by bacon notes, no bitterness. Light, quite fizzy, with a yeasty note in the finish.
