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.

Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a cloudy dark brownish amber with a large lingering tan coloured head that leaves some tight lace. Nose is strong smoke, grain with some yeast and light banana. Flavour is lightly sweet with a touch of spice and a light bitterness towards the finish. The smoke is more subtle than in the nose. Medium body with slightly soft carbonation. 6/4-/7/3+/13

Aroma of banana, smoke, a little bit of fresh plum. Dark orange color, beer was clear before pouring the yeast in. Was more bitter than i expected, but still not very much. Kinda smoky bitterness.

Zoigl (12) - Flossenbürg, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUL 10, 2016
0.5l Bottle. Pours cloudy, brown colour. Nose is typical "Schlenkerla": smoky, caramel, malt. Very well balanced taste, not too smoky, a little sweetness. Full bodied, very nice drinkability. Must try!

thought I was picking up the urbock which I have tried and like; won’t do that again - disliked this and didn’t even finish the bottle. aroma - some nice smoke and some unpleasant wet rag and stinkiness. taste wasn’t much better - funky, stanky end. out.

anstei (1011) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUN 20, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Smoked bacon aroma, but not as intense as others. Has that clear weizen texture without the yeast-forwardness. Meaty throughout. Full-bodied, a bit oily. Nice.

oliodnb (655) - ITALY - JUN 20, 2016
50cl bottle. Pours hazy dark amber with a beautiful thick off white sticky head. Aroma is light sweet malts, grain, wood smoke. Taste has the smoked note less pronounced with a good balance with the refreshing weizen flavor (banana, spices) that comes out in the finish along with the smoke again. Light body, medium carbonation. Surprisingly good.
