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.

A good looking beer, ruddy brown with a thick spongy head. Lovely meaty smoke aroma that seems to fill your stomach with a few whiffs. A bit rubbery on tasting, but the flavour seems well balanced. Could do with a bit more body, although I guess as it is a wheat beer it I shouldn’t expected too much. Overall a decent brew, but not up to the standard of the other Aecht Schlenkerla I’ve had to date, the marzen.

Ambrée voilee, belle carbo, petit collet fuyant. Aromes sur le bois et saucisse fumé. Au palais on retrouve un peu la douceur d’une Weizen contrebalancé par la force du fumé. Mais cela ne fonctionne pas comme il faut. Ca manque de mousse...

500ml bottle poured in a Pilsen glass. A: Pours a Dark and cloudy amber-brown colour; an immense yellow to beige head is formed. Very bubbled, lots of carbonation. Retention is high helped by the long glass and many lacings are left S: Very smokey with a strong wheat backbone. Roasted malts and yeasts T: Taste is strong on smoked and roasted malts. Some traces of banana as a regular Weissbier. The blend of smoked malts, yeasts and roasted malts bitterness is definitely balanced M: Smooth body and, at the same time, light and easy drinking. Considerable carbonation. Smoked aftertaste O: Extremely easy to drink. Highly recommended beer [ BA Review @ 1/7/2012 ]

0.5L tap. Pours hazy orange-brown with a frothy tan head Aroma is mild smoke, but mostly clove and yeast. Flavor is mild sweet, with citrusy yeast and mild smoke flavor coming through. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, not as smokey as I was expecting, but a nice addition to the flavor profile of a weizen.

From the bottle. Clear brown/dunkel colour, white head that quickly dissapears. Lovely smoky-weizen aroma and lovely taste. Very interesting beer

Bien sûr c’est épatant.Le fumé est délicieux.Cependant, je suis gêné par l’acidité donnée à la chose.Trop acide pour le genre.

Incredible beer. Not as smoky as the Marzen but enough to make this Weizen a treat. So smooth and luscious with a nice clove/banana flavor that isn’t overwhelmed by a nicely done Beechwood smokiness.

Flasche aus einem REWE-Getränkemarkt in Bamberg, MHD: 1/2015. - Anfangs tiefes Kupferrot, das aber beim Einschenken der vom Flaschenboden aufgerührten Hefe in ein schmutziges Gelbbraun übergeht. Sehr trüb. - In der Nase das typische Schlenkerla-Raucharoma (Schwarzwälder Schinken, Geräuchertes), warme Karamelsüße und eine schroff säuerliche, obergärig bananige Note. - Im Antrunk tritt für einen kurzen Moment das Rauchmalz hervor, wird aber sogleich von einer herben Säure mit schroff zitronigen Zügen verdrängt. Dazu eine leichte Kräuternote (Basilikum?), ein Restchen Karamelsüße und ein Hauch von fauliger Banane. Gut rezent. Im Abgang etwas Rauch, ein wenig Hopfenherbe und noch mehr essigstichige Säure. - Diese Kombination von Rauch, fauliger Banane und Essigsäure streift schon hart an die Grenze zur Ungenießbarkeit. Vielleicht schon verdorben? Aber doch nicht eine gerade mal drei Wochen alte Flasche? Muß das bei nächster Gelegenheit im Schlenkerla neu verkosten.

Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Weizen. OK, I am kind of biased because I love smoked beers and I seem to like everything out of Aecht Schlenkerla. This one is no different. Beautiful brown pour with a thick tan head emitting a smoky aroma although lacking complexity. Taste is a nice balance between wheat notes (bubblegum mostly) and smoke. Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Weizen is delicious to the last drop. Enjoy with meats!
