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.

Bottle from Alko. Originally rated on 11.12.2009. Interesting mix of a smoked beer and a weizenbock. Slightly unbalanced though.

Maakun (4064) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Bit past best before date. Hazy amber with beige head. Smoked sausage, some peach, caramel, ash, light grassy. More smoked meats, fries, old fat. Almost medium sweet, light sour and bitter. Medium bodied. I don’t like it. It’s obviously gone way downhill from a fresh specimen, but it’s mostly the smoke that doesn’t do it for me.

Pours hazy dark amber with a nice head which quickly dissipates to a ring. The aroma is smoked ham, smoked cheese with clear hints of banana and sweet malt in the back. The taste is a combination of smoked and weizen flavours - it’s smokey, sweet, biscuity and woody, a bit sour too. The body is medium to full, the carbonation is medium. It’s an interesting beer, quite complex and full of flavours, and even though I like smoked beers, I found it a bit too heavy. A sipper rather than a thirst-quencher.

Got this in Berlin smoked aromas dominate. A bit of roast and wheat as well. The smoke flavor is excellent with what and hints of fruit.

Copid (16) - POLAND - SEP 26, 2016
Wygląd: brązowe, mętne, opalizujące, piana drobnopęcherzykowa, bardzo ładny lacing. Aromat: Prażynki bekonowe, troszkę ogniska, lekki oscypek oraz minimalna słodka nuta banana w tle za wędzonką. Smak: Spora słodycz, drewno z ogniska, trochę oscypka i trochę prażynek bekonowych połączonych z bananem. Generalnie nie była to najfajniejsza wędzonka ze Schlenkerli jaką piłem, gdzieś mi brakowało tych nut weizenowych, ale i tak jest to klasa jeżeli chodzi o wędzone piwo. Warte spróbowania.

Ciemno miedziane, mętne piwo o obfitej pianie, która zdobi szkło i pozostaje do końca w formie średniej warstewki na powierzchni. Aromat i smak to mieszanina cech typowych dla pszenicy i wędzonki. Goryczka niska. Ogólnie bardzo udane piwo, czuć że nie jest to lager jak przy innych piwach z tego browaru, które piłem. Wędzonka jest tu mniej intensywna jak przy lagerach, a dość wyraźnie wychodzą cechy typowe dla niemieckiej pszenicy.

Quevillon (2925) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2016
500 ml bottle purchase at the LCBO on Rideau & King Edward (Ottawa) on June 30, 2016. Dark rust, small head. Smoky malted wheat aroma, some sweetness. Sweet fruity malt taste, with a nice touch of smokiness, dry green hop bitterness. Quite a balance smoke ale!
