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.

Banan, ogniskowa wędzonka, zboże, goździk, delikatna ziemistość. Średnio treściwe, umiarkowanie słodkie. Wysokie wysycenie, średnia goryczka. Może i dość proste oraz nieskomplikowane, ale fajne.

Birthday bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker; thanks to Anke & family!
Best before: January 2017.
Back in September 2012, I travelled to the nice, small city of Bamberg in Bavaria for an Erasmus programme of 4 months. I soon heard that Bamberg had - for its size a staggering - nine breweries. The real talk of the town of those was Schlenkerla, which brewed a beer 'that smelt of sausage'. Apparently, one had to drink it six times before being able to appreciate it. At that time I was a beer lover but not yet a beer rater, so I let that cup pass... Finally, here it is, for a first real rating. Pours cloudy dark brown with a thinning, off-white head. The aroma contains smoked ham & sausage, roasted malt, bacon, smoke & wood, some hops & wheat. It tastes light malty sweet and light (smoky/meaty) umami at first, then light to medium hoppy bitter into the smoky finish. Medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation. Must have suffered from expiration a bit but it was still enjoyable - and unique. However, when I visit Bamberg again I must drink it fresh from tap and rerate.

Też bardzo dobre piwo jednak w tyle za marcowym. Przyjemny dym z podbudową weizenową.

boca 0,5L - kupljena u Vrutku...napokon i weizen koji je dimljen...malo je puniji i kremastiji od marzena, da je malo više arome dima bio bi još bolji

200ml draught. Dark brown with one finger cream head. Aroma is fiery smoke, wheat, smoked meats, light banana and light cloves. Taste is gentle fairly typical wheat beer notes of wheat, banana and clove paired with smoky and smoked meat notes. Medium to full mouthfeel, light carbonation and smoked banana aftertaste.

500 ml bottle. Deep copper brown color. Small creamy tan head. Big smoky malt nose. Tart, smoky wheat malt flavor. Light cocoa notes in middle. Not your typical German Weizen. Complex and flavorful with campfire notes. Slightly salty, charred wood finish.

Das Rauchweizen ist dunkelbraun und hat ein herrliches Aroma von Geräuchertem. Schön malzig und würziger Geschmack.
