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.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2005
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.

Bottle, poured into a Weltenburger mug. Pours a dark amber color with off white head. Smoked, wood, sausage aromas. Smoked meats, smoke, wood, slight biscuity flavors. Not quite as good as the marzen, but still a classic rauchbier

adasko (1822) - Poznan, POLAND - AUG 7, 2016
Dark amber, bright copper color. Big slightly off-white head, nice lacing. Beautiful smoked, wooden, campfire aroma. It’s deep and rich with very nice cloves and banana background. Same thing in taste. A lot of smoked notes in the beginning. Then in the middle some sweetness and favours typical for german weizen. Long, super pleasant smoked and burned wood aftertaste. So drinkable, very refreshing. Top quality beer, awesome.
