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.

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.

Beerheart65 (1225) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2016
Murky mahogany with thick creamy light brown head that gives nice lacing. Bit sweet, malty and smoky, grilled sausages, bubblegum, lightly spicy, wheat bit hidden, caramel. Medium to light body, dry, round and soft, low carbonation, lightly smoky medium long finish with bit ripe fruit. Not bad but just does not work for me nearly as well as urbock or märzen mostly because of palate and balance.

SX Bottle Share, Chelmsford Ale House, 2/2/2016, thanks to Dan. Smoked sausages. Smoked Bavarian cheese. Crispy bacon. Soft malts. One of my favourites. Genius usage of smoked malt. Absolutely insane drinkability. Truly world class.

Prawdziwy przykład dobrej wędzonki, piękna kiełbaska, jakby gaszone rosą drewno z ogniska, dodatkowo dochodzą banany. W smaku banan-goździk, ale fajnie palony, ogniskowy. Przyjemny obowiązek.

A very nice smoked beer. Pours a beautiful deep red with little head. Smells of smokiness and wheat. Taste is smoked bacon with a sweet backing that balances well. Had in the bottle.

SinH4 (1595) - Garching, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2016
Proper Dunkelweizen appearance. Aroma is ham smoke, but it feels fresh. Taste is smoked ham, spicyness. No bananas, and the mouthfeel is a bit too watery for a Weizen, but I love it.
