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.

puredelusion (85) - Lviv, UKRAINE - MAR 1, 2015
0,5 bottle. Pours hazy deep copper colour with high white, lasting head. Balanced and pleasant aroma of hops, smoke, wheat, wood. Flavour is smooth, light sweet, banana, wheat and yeast are upfront and smoke and bacon are foreground. Finish is quite dry and smoke, umami. Medium to full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Unique and complex.

500ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a big beige head. Aroma is smoke, burnt wood and a bit of wheat in the background. Taste is sweet smoke followed by fruity sourness. Definitely an interesting one.

teddybeer (2417) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 15, 2015
Brown color with a creamy off-white head, good lasting and nice lacework. Aroma has notes of wood, light wheat and toasted malts. Flavor is toasty, slightly sweet, some yeasty notes and wooden traces. Slightly bittery in the final with wooden hints on palata with good duration.

rikstar (1066) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2015
0,5l fles gedeeld met Nikos. Geur rookvlees, beetje verbrand hout. Smaak is beetje het weizen maar de rook overheerst toch. Salmiak in de afdronk.

Tämä, jos joku, on erikoinen olut. Tuoksussa risteytyy savuoluen savuisuus vehnäoluille ominaiseen hiivaisuuteen ja vehnäisyyteen.

edsspoon (624) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2015
Bottle - bright copper with a pale brown large foamy head which gradually bubbles away. Aroma of smokey bacon, wheat and a hint of antiseptic with a little sourness. Taste of smoke, peat, bacon, wheat and hay with a little yeast and sourness in the finish. Medium heavy body with low carbonation.

AndresTM (338) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 4, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2015 The pour is dark, hazy, slightly yellowish, colored like the fur of a Kodiak bear. Gorgeous and indicative of the immense depth of the beer. The smell is candied nuts, clove, a hint of banana, bacon bits, smoked sausage, and malted barley. It speaks of a beer that is as refreshing in the summer as it is interesting in the colder months. The mouthfeel is creamy, with a medium to thin body that dissipates into tiny bubbles with the touch of the tongue but isn’t overly effervescent. The taste is slightly bitter from the smoke and hops, lightly umami, with delicate, sweet, eatery spices rounding it out. Beautiful and versatile.

Aroma of wheat, charred wood, some banana, smoked sausage, hint of lemon. Flavour is a bit sour, actually. Nice beer!

77ships (4550) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 24, 2015
500 ml. bottle @ home. Procured from Dranken Geers. BBF 03/2015. Small GUSHER. Resulting in a first glass that was almost entirely just foam. Very dark amber, brown, slightly off-white huge head. Wonderful lacing. Nose is huge delicious Schlenkerla smoke, huge amounts of thick umami smoke, smoked wood,…. Incredible. Taste is banana upfront, leading into sweetish meaty smoke, Black Forest ham, German yeast, branches, Schlenkerla smoke, interesting mix of very sweet banana & smoke, cooked brown apples, lots of smoke & lots of caramel, faint fish guts, brown sugar. Caramel body. Drinks like water. Not sure if it entirely blends both characteristics but it is a highly unique and delicious offering all the same.
