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.

Percy0103 (317) - MEXICO - OCT 31, 2015
Bottle, 355ml. A cloudy brown beer with a small white head. Aroma is of charcuterie, spices and alcohol. Taste is bitter with a smoked finish. Some carbonation and astringency. Medium bodied with a strong smoked character that maybe overpowers everything else. Some wood notes are also present.

Sdaniel90 (589) - Mexico City, MEXICO - OCT 31, 2015
Bottle, 500ml. Murky maple with a frothy tan head. Weizen aromas: citrus, Belgian yeast, banana, with added smokiness. Medium bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Sweet and wheaty, with a smoked edged and a fruity finished. Basically a smoked weizen. Very interesting and very well brewed.

Fukito (976) - Santiago, CHILE - OCT 25, 2015
Pours a clear ruby with a white head. Aroma is smoked bacon with some woody notes and the slightest yeast touch. Flavor is same smokiness with some malty sweetness. Medium palate. Not that different from the marzen, maybe lighter?

jamaty (1544) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 21, 2015
Marrón, espuma ocre. Aroma bien ahumado, con algún recuerdo a caucho. En boca es muy malteada, de trago fácil, que a medida que avanza llena la nariz de humo. Cuerpo moderado y bien de gas. Diferente sin duda, puede no gustar a muchos. A mi sí.

tightslice (601) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 20, 2015
Bottle from Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is smoked ham sammy, pretzels and spiced mustard with some smoked jam condiments. Taste is sweet and bready but ultimately my least favorite of the bunch.

jamestulloch (2462) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 17, 2015
Bottle from BottleDog, Edinburgh. Murky chestnut body with a thick beige head. Good lacing. Aroma of cheese, parma ham, copper and lots of smoke. Flavour of dirty penny, tea and a sour finish. Thin to medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Horrible.

kamillozo (84) - POLAND - OCT 10, 2015
Butelka, warka do 01.2016. Barwa miedziana / ciemnobrązowa, piwo zmętnione. Wstępnie obfita i drobna piana koloru ecru redukuje się niemal całkowicie nie pozostawiając śladów na szkle. Szkoda. Aromat wyraźnie wędzony i dymny, z trudem przebijają się nuty słodowe i bananowo - drożdżowe. W smaku nadal dominuje wędzonka (bardziej szynkowa) uzupełniona bazą słodową o charakterze tostowym, opiekanym i drożdżami. Umiarkowanie słodkie, z nieznaczną kwasowością i goryczką. Posmak słodowo - wędzony. Pozostawia odczucie średnio pełnego i zbyt nisko nagazowanego (jak na waizena) piwa.
