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.

Grumsete brun i fargen med beige lavt skum. Røkt skinkelukt. Røkt korn, hvete i smak. Mye smak, men den forsvinner fort.

Murky brown beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Light creamy malt, tangy dried fruits. The smoke is not too acrid but there is a lot of it. Minerally semi dry finish. A bit smoky but it is drinkable.

Very very smokey and caramely. Stronger that it smells, with smokey after taste. Doesn’t make you feel you can drink two in a row

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is excellent for a wheat beer, but not great for a Rauchbier. Smoke flavors are still heavily noticeable, but wheat bear flavors are also obvious. I don’t like wheat beers, so I admit I’m biased, but this is the worst Schlenkerla Rauchbier. Still drinkable though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark brown, cloudy, average to large and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate to full, malty – lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish aroma, some smokiness and light bacon with faint banana. Body is medium, malty – lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish flavor, light smokiness and faint banana. Finish is average, malty – some wheat and dryish - lightly sweetish, some smokiness and faint bacon with faint banana. Aroma has more smokiness/bacon than flavor. Otherwise really really nice - maybe best hefeweizen I have ever had.
