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.

Opaque brown, enormous long-lasting beige head. Very visibly flocculent yeast. Smells vaguely of barbecue. Flavor spicy, vinous, smoky. Hops buried under the smoke. Medium to light body. Very good, overall, but not an everyday beer by any means.

Formou um colarinho poderoso! Consistente, castanho e volumoso. Liquido turvo e cor de mel. Aroma salgado, de carnes defumadas. Perfeitamente dentro do estilo proposto. Um pouco de alcool. Sabor suave, pouco encorpada. Doce rapidamente no início, indo para um salgado agradável e defumado. Sem resquícios de cinzas. Não senti gosto de banana nem de chocolate, como era esperado. Senti um toque suave de cacau, não de chocolate. Mas mesmo assim considero uma ótima representante do estilo Rauchbier, porém não da Weissen. Retrogosto agradável, defumado, persistente.

Cerveja marrom escura, aparencia e aroma de defumado. Boa mistura de maltes de cevada e trigo

ElManana (250) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - SEP 18, 2014
Deep, clear amber with decent lasting head. Aroma is artificial smoke, BBQ, coals. Taste is unfortunately also the same as smoke. Beer flavors really don’t come through at all. Gross, god I hate smoked beers.

Bottle @ home. Backlog. Hazy copper/red color with some larger least lumps. Large creamy head. Aroma has smoke, birch, wheat, caramel, toast, almond & some ham. Hints of banana. And vanilla as it gets warmer. Smooth & sweet flavor of wheat, caramel, almond, canned ham and yeast. Biscuits and toast in mid-taste as well. Finish has banana and wheat with a grassy & earthy bitterness.

500 ml bottle. Pours a hazy brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have ample smoked malt, the nose has some meatiness to it but not much in the flavor, caramel, wheat, dry, good but I like the urbock and marzen more.

Naprawde wyśmienite piwo. Dużo wędzonych nut. Wyznacznik stylu. Chociaż możetrochę za mało charakteru pszenicznego.

Aroma defumado, não tanto quanto a "Marzen", porém muito saborosa com um pequeno e suave adocicado bem no final.

beerbaaron (1245) - Arizona, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Murky light brownish amber with a good sized frothy beige head. Aroma is modestly smoked, campfire, banana, clove. Bigger light to lighter medium body. Well carbonated. A bit of tanginess. Light to moderate earthy bitterness. Nice moderate fruitiness. Smoke doesn’t take over. Nice balance. Great drinkability. Superbly made beer.

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.
