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.

ComradeK (1100) - Sydney, - SEP 13, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy red-brown with a sizeable head that seems to last forever. Some faint herb notes mingle with strong smoked bacon and Lapsang Souchong tea on the nose. It is smooth and sweet to begin, with a hint of banana coming in, before being replaced by a potent mix of spicy bitterness and slightly harsh smoke. There is a hint of the typical sweet weizen finish, but made a bit less sweet and a bit more complex by the strong smoke. The aftertaste is an unusual mix of weizen banana and smoke. Interesting, and quite good.

lesifflebiere (1670) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 29, 2016
Cette bière mi-épaisse aux allures de dunkel trouble annonce tout de suite ses couleurs : puissamment fumée, sirupeuse et sucrée. La bouche est brillamment complexe, avec bien sûr du malt fumé mais aussi des pommes, de la cassonnade et des fraises. Elle est cependant assez peu différente des autres "schlenkerla" disponibles et mieux connues ; un peu plus crayeuse et décadente, sinon c’est la bombe fumée, en apparence et en goût, que l’on connait déjà. Correcte, très bonne même, mais pas du tout révolutionnaire.

aleigator (767) - GERMANY - AUG 28, 2016
Pours a dark brown, ember color with a dense, stable head. Smells of smoked, bacon accompanied wheat - something I never experienced that way. Sweet, but smoked malts add to the richness of the nose with a balancing earth component to it. Has a perfectly fitting, medium to higher carbonation, complimenting to the refreshing, yet powerful body of the beer. Tastes of smoke from the very beginning with crisp lemon peel and almost a peaty, wooden profound earth profile. Toffee malts mingle into the prominent, wooden smoke with a note of rock sugar on top, creating a nice antagonist to the lemon. Finishes sweet with a nice herbal dryness among wheat and prevailing smoke. Awesome and unique with a great twist resulting from the straw and crisp lemon against the multi layered, rustic smoke profile.

jcnielsen (3180) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 10, 2016
Bottle, poured into a Weltenburger mug. Pours a dark amber color with off white head. Smoked, wood, sausage aromas. Smoked meats, smoke, wood, slight biscuity flavors. Not quite as good as the marzen, but still a classic rauchbier

adasko (1831) - Poznan, POLAND - AUG 7, 2016
Dark amber, bright copper color. Big slightly off-white head, nice lacing. Beautiful smoked, wooden, campfire aroma. It’s deep and rich with very nice cloves and banana background. Same thing in taste. A lot of smoked notes in the beginning. Then in the middle some sweetness and favours typical for german weizen. Long, super pleasant smoked and burned wood aftertaste. So drinkable, very refreshing. Top quality beer, awesome.
