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.

Mid to dark brown color with short lasting foam. Smell of smoked ham. Taste is good in balance and if you like smoked beers you probably like this one.

Bottle @ home. Backlog. Hazy copper/red color with some larger least lumps. Large creamy head. Aroma has smoke, birch, wheat, caramel, toast, almond & some ham. Hints of banana. And vanilla as it gets warmer. Smooth & sweet flavor of wheat, caramel, almond, canned ham and yeast. Biscuits and toast in mid-taste as well. Finish has banana and wheat with a grassy & earthy bitterness.

500 ml bottle. Pours a hazy brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have ample smoked malt, the nose has some meatiness to it but not much in the flavor, caramel, wheat, dry, good but I like the urbock and marzen more.

Naprawde wyśmienite piwo. Dużo wędzonych nut. Wyznacznik stylu. Chociaż możetrochę za mało charakteru pszenicznego.

Aroma defumado, não tanto quanto a "Marzen", porém muito saborosa com um pequeno e suave adocicado bem no final.

Murky light brownish amber with a good sized frothy beige head. Aroma is modestly smoked, campfire, banana, clove. Bigger light to lighter medium body. Well carbonated. A bit of tanginess. Light to moderate earthy bitterness. Nice moderate fruitiness. Smoke doesn’t take over. Nice balance. Great drinkability. Superbly made beer.

I really like the Aecht Marzen, but not so sure about this. It is one of the least visually attractive beers I’ve had - flat and cloudy brown, like washing up water after scrubbing out burnt pans. But it has that wonderful smoked sausage aroma, like nothing else in the beer world. Taste is a blend of banana cake and smokiness - not bad. But it’s pretty watery and unsubstantial in the mouth. Not a favourite.

Spezifarben, matschfarben im Glas, schaumig. In der Nase rauchig, hefig, weizig, interessante und gute Balance. Am Gaumen hefig, weizig, rauchiger Nachgeschmack, weniger intensiv als das Märzen. Normaler Körper.

Bottle. Dark ruby with a 2 finger white head. Aroma is campfire and fruit. Taste follows and adds wheat and clove. Thin sticky mouthfeel. Not terrible but also not a combination of flavors I love.

Alla spina. Aroma di frumento, banana, affumicato. Rispetto alla classica marzen, molto meno beverina. L’affumicato apportato alla weizen non mi convince del tutto.
