A Hefeweizen mit Flaschengärung, made from wheat malt and smoked barley malt, with refermentation in the bottle. The bottle will be poured at the servery and will not be brought to your table, as is the custom here. Hazy to murky appearance, not so much foam as usual for a Hefeweizen. Fruity (some banana, some citrus), malty-sweet plus slightly smoked taste, creamy mouthfeel. Some slight bitterness in the aftertaste. Not really my cup of eh.... beer, but interesting.

Cloudy old gold; thick white pillowy head; typical aroma of wheat and banana; taste is also straight-down-the-line traditional wheat beer - banana, a little clove; maybe a little smoke too; this was overcarbonated for me, the fizziness spoiling things; it’s ok, perhaps the wrong time of year for it.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - SEP 24, 2013
Hellorangenes HW mit flüchtigem Schaum. Nelkig-bananiges Aroma mit feiner Rauchnote im Hintergrund. Im Geschmack ist der Rauch deutlich zu erschmecken und ergänzt die Gewürznelke ganz vorzüglich. Selbst im relativ langen Abgang schmeckt man Bambergs Rauch. Ein echtes Charakter-Weizen!

Bottle 0.5l from P&M Bonn. Pours hazy copper with a fast vanishing head. Aroma is slightly fruity, no hint of smoke. Taste is typical wheat beer with a hint of sourness. Smoke is almost undetectable. Could be much more smokey for me. Okay wheat beer.

Bottle at Spezial Keller. A smoked weisse beer? Ok. Well yes an edge of tcp on the aroma. Yes settles down and has some drinkability. The smoke fades into a simple malty weisse. Some hop on finish. Not complex surprisingly this is mostly about the smoke aroma.
