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.

Smell is medium smoked, pours with a lot of head, pours dark brown. Taste is sour with a mild lasting smoked afteryaste. A good beer, nothing special

Great combination of wheat and smoked barley. Greatly balanced between the two. The aroma is light smoke with wheat taste. The appearance is red, very hazy, cloudy, white head. The flavour is smoke, bacon.The finish is smoke, slightly sweet. Medium in body. Loved it.

500 mL bottle. This is one of the ugliest beers I have ever seen; muddy, rusty brown with a film of head and varying sizes of sediment floating around in it. The aroma is interesting, along with the campfire, I get berries. Sweet berries. Somehow this works. My wife says it tastes like burnt hotdogs. Goddammit, now that’s all I can think of. It does taste like burnt hot dogs. Only better. The weizen definitely adds complexity to the rauchbier - I like this one a lot better than the marzen. If only it weren’t such a mutt.

Dunkelbraun rötlich, trüb mit weißem cremigem Schaum. Typischer Weizenbiergeruch gepaart mit dem Rauch, der an schwarzwälder Schinken erinnert. Mit dem ersten Schluck wird man dann endgültig von der Schinkenkeule erschlagen, der alles andere übertönt.

AdiBeer (1758) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Aroma: smoked flavours, savoury, bacon, light wheat. Appearance: hazy, dark brown, large, frothy, beige head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters continue, some sours, smoked flavours again, slightly watery, quite short finish. Overall: a bit of a disappointment, nice aroma, but the palate is not that great, too watery and bitter, not like a Weizen at all, wondering if I got an odd bottle. Bottle from Utobeer, London Bridge.

0.5l bottle. Muddy brown color with white/browny head. Smell of smoke and banana. Aroma of smoke, wood, ham, wheat and banana. Taste is sour, salt, bitter and little sweet, little bit of everything.

Brown color like greese, small foam, you can see pices of something floating in beer. Aroma of smoked cheese, salty taste. Odd but good.

puredelusion (103) - 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.
