Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Dark red, murky, tanned head. SMells of smoke, bacon and sausage! Moderate sweet, some dark fruity malts, then smoke time. The smoke malts has sausage and hints of bacon; then the weizen yeast brings in more fruityness and hints of banana and bubblegum. The whole thing is quite complex and different, but is definitivly a Aecht Schlenkerla rauchbier experience, and that means a super solid rauchbier. This is good stuff

Bottle. Pours dark hazy brown. A lot of smoke in the nose. Tastes like old pork fat and smoke. Not a fan.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Hazy brown color with medium fast-disappearing head. Strong smoke aroma is devastating standard weizen aroma. Full-bodied beer. Rather difficult to drink. Taste of smoked cheese. Very special beer. Don’t like it, but maybe it’s taste will find fans.

50cl bottle @ Homo Sibaris, served in Weizen. Pours brown with medium white creamy head. Malty aroma, licorice notes, substantial smoke. Nice blend of banana, bacon, and hops regarding taste. Dry palate. Medium body, perfect carbonation. Very balanced, not a strong smoky beer.

I really need to do a head-to-head comparison of the Schlenkerla smoked beers to see if I actually have a favorite, as so far the best one is whichever I’m drinking right now. Smoked meat and fruity sweetness. Delicious.

Woohoo, quality rauchbier!
Top notch aroma, lots of smoke from a fresh firepit in the forest, smell of sausages, bit of alcohol at the end. Superb!
Very good taste, loooong end with a taste of smoke. Try some hard cheese with it!
Fizzy and soft. Full body with a medium bitter finish.
A must try, definitely. You’re gonna love it!
