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.

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 - its smokey, sweet, biscuity and woody, a bit sour too. The body is medium to full, the carbonation is medium. Its 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.

klukas (179) - Rijeka, CROATIA - OCT 2, 2016
Enjoyed: Poured from a bottle into a glass. Appearance: Blurry brown colour, looks thick; Short-lived foam. Aroma: Smoked cheese and tofu, maybe even sausage. Palate: Watery, low carbonation. Taste: Smoked cheese, tofu and sausage. Overall impression: Interesting, good for enjoyment. Good appetizer.

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 sprbowania.

Ciemno miedziane, mętne piwo o obfitej pianie, ktra 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. Oglnie bardzo udane piwo, czuć że nie jest to lager jak przy innych piwach z tego browaru, ktre piłem. Wędzonka jest tu mniej intensywna jak przy lagerach, a dość wyraźnie wychodzą cechy typowe dla niemieckiej pszenicy.

Quevillon (2966) - 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!

UXO (1651) - CANADA - SEP 13, 2016
Appearance: cloudy deep amber with one fat finger of rocky ivory head, excellent retention and spotty lacing. (4/5) Aroma: smoke, toffee, ham/bacon, bready yeast. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate smoke, mild bitter. (8/10) Medium-light body, lively to moderate carbonation, off-dry smoky finish. (3/5) As usual, Im not completely convinced that Im actually smelling smoke-cured meat here, but the combination of sweetness and smoke is so inextricably linked to bacon, its impossible to convince myself theres no bacon there. So, maybe there is, and maybe there isnt. Aside from the cloudiness, the weizen character definitely takes a distant back seat to the smoke, but doesnt feel out of place - I mean, who doesnt like a slice of toast with their bacon, right? I think its a bit lighter - in body, colour, and flavour - than the rest of the family (except the Lagerbier) but thats not necessarily a criticism: in general, I wouldnt hesitate to have any one of the Schlenkerla beers as a fireside sipper, but this also works as a refreshing thirst quencher. (15/20)

Piwa wędzone cenię nade wszystkie inne. Samo pojęcie takiegoż piwa dla przeciętnego opoja raczącego się wątpliwej jakości lagerami jest czymś z pogranicza literatury fantasy. Bo jak to niby tak piwo wędzić ?- zapytałby zapewne twardogłowy piwożłop. Ale pozostawiam już piwnych masochistw samych sobie, a skupię nieco na piwie od Schlekerli. Browar ten ma doświadczenie w dymieniu piw, zaś tenże amalgamat wędzonki z pszenicznością skusił mnie od razu. Z butelki zapach wędzony, lecz wyczuwam ciekawą ciasteczkowość. Piana drobna, szybko opadająca, zdobiąca. Kolor herbaciany, mętny. W zapachu ze szkła dużo więcej czynnikw weizenowych. Banany, serek homogenizowany o smaku waniliowym. I zapewne goździki, ktrych notorycznie nie wyczuwam, a ktre zawsze występują w zestawieniu z dwoma powyższymi. W smaku odczuwalna wędzoność, pozostająca w ustach na długo. Lecz złagodzona przez wpływ pszenicy. Po raz kolejny stwierdzam- ponad wszystkie inne piwa, nie żyją piwa wędzone :)

My first experience with a beer that blends smoked barley with unsmoked wheat, and my second experience with Schlenkerla. Both positive experiences to say the least. Light brown coloring. Beautiful meaty smoke aromas. Tastes like liquid Christmas ham with some underlying fruit sweetness (citrus and banana). Body is both refreshing and rich. Excellent.

0,5l bottle. Beer with nicely balanced malty taste and smoked aroma. One of my favourite rauchbiers.
