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.

Smells of, what else, smoke. Real smoky saltiness happening here, reminds of dutch smoked sausage (rookworst). First taste - good mouthfeel, tiny bubbles. First you get malt, than some sweetness and than bitterness and smoke come through. The smokiness is (to me) much less in your mouth than in the smell. All in all, great experience. I was looking for a Bock but the shop had the weizen only, and the smokiness combiness much better than I hoped. One of those beers you must have tried once!

Very interesting smoked beer. Woody, smoke aroma. Beautiful long lasting head. Brown color. Roasted smokey coffee flavor. Wheat comes through nicely too.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Dark red, murky, tanned head. SMells of smoke, bacon and sausage! Moderate sweet, some dark fruity malts, then smoke time. The smoke malts has sausage and hints of bacon; then the weizen yeast brings in more fruityness and hints of banana and bubblegum. The whole thing is quite complex and different, but is definitivly a Aecht Schlenkerla rauchbier experience, and that means a super solid rauchbier. This is good stuff

Aroma: intensive smoked notes of smoked ham and cheese, also some banana notes. Appearance: hazy dark amber color, huge lasting beige head. Taste: combination of smoked notes, bananas and cloves, quite sweet. Palate: medium body and high carbonation, nice smoked finish. Overall: Classical beer from Schlenkerla, nice combination of weizen with smoked beer. Highly recommended for all smoked beers geeks.

Bottle. Pours dark hazy brown. A lot of smoke in the nose. Tastes like old pork fat and smoke. Not a fan.

Color caoba tupido con espuma color crema. Aromas dulces y afrutados con toques ahumados agradables. En boca tiene densidad media-baja, ligera de inicio,ahumada, algo dulce y afrutado, acaba con un ligero amargor seco que se une a un toque ácido y ahumado que dura hasta el regusto. Muy rica.

Dzhigga (54) - Kirov, RUSSIA - APR 6, 2014
Bottle. Hazy brown color with medium fast-disappearing head. Strong smoke aroma is devastating standard weizen aroma. Full-bodied beer. Rather difficult to drink. Taste of smoked cheese. Very special beer. Don’t like it, but maybe it’s taste will find fans.

Acid303 (398) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - APR 2, 2014
50cl bottle @ Homo Sibaris, served in Weizen. Pours brown with medium white creamy head. Malty aroma, licorice notes, substantial smoke. Nice blend of banana, bacon, and hops regarding taste. Dry palate. Medium body, perfect carbonation. Very balanced, not a strong smoky beer.

I really need to do a head-to-head comparison of the Schlenkerla smoked beers to see if I actually have a favorite, as so far the best one is whichever I’m drinking right now. Smoked meat and fruity sweetness. Delicious.

Woohoo, quality rauchbier! Top notch aroma, lots of smoke from a fresh firepit in the forest, smell of sausages, bit of alcohol at the end. Superb! Very good taste, loooong end with a taste of smoke. Try some hard cheese with it! Fizzy and soft. Full body with a medium bitter finish. A must try, definitely. You’re gonna love it!
