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.

wittycasla (4) - Santiago, CHILE - FEB 17, 2017 does not count
Cerveza ahumada de exquisito aroma. Para nada grotesco. De color marrn oscuro y un sabor medio. En boca tiene un cuerpo medio y un regusto excepcional.

john44 (2617) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2017
Bottle. Dark amber colour. Cloudy. Smoked aroma very evident. Smoky (nicely lightly smoked) wheat beer. Fruity (banana) and spicy. Sweetish and very smooth. Very drinkable. Smoke is more subtle, less powerful than the Marzen, or even, than the Urbock. Unique beer. Very nice! (2008)

ozzatoadisback (131) - ITALY - FEB 11, 2017
Dark amber to light brown. Average head, ok persistence, not much lacing. Aroma is softly/yeastly smoked (wood, smoked ham), along with strong banana and slight spiciness. In the taste: caramel, banana, slight spiciness (clove). Smoked notes are less strong than in the aroma and theyre showing up mostly in the finish/aftertaste. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation (pretty low for a weizen). Ok, maybe a bit forced of a pairing, lacking both in weizens drinkability/refreshing feel and in the full feel of their smoked lagers.

popiela (710) - Pozna, POLAND - FEB 10, 2017
Butelka 0,5l. Aromat wędzonki, trochę fenolowy, ładnie to skomponowane. W smaku bardzo mocno wytrawne, kwaskowe, posmak wędzony.

buki (108) - Otwock, POLAND - FEB 8, 2017
Zapach z butelki - totalna szynka, troszkę ogniskowego dymu
Z pokala pachnie bardziej przyprawowo, pełniej, są goździki, pszenica, trochę slodyczy
Piana zbiera się piękna, opada powoli - wzorcowo jeżeli chodzi o piwo pszeniczne :D
Ciało jest niskie, piwo jest bardzo smukłe bez silnego aftertejstu. Nagazowanie jest akuratne i nie jest przesadzone
W smaku jest nieco wodniste, jednak można wyczuć ognisko, drewno, szynkę, dym delikatnie zaznaczone bananem i goździkiem. W ustach pozostaje silny posmak przyprawowy.
Całość jest zbilansowana, pijalna i smukła. Wędzonka nie niszczy, nawet ktoś kto nie specjalnie się w piwach dymionych orientuje z chęcią wypije.

Nikokaoja (116) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - FEB 8, 2017
8. 2. 2017, Ljubljana. Bottled. As a fan of smoked beer AND wheat beer I was really surprised with the funny combo of fully present souerness of this beer. Not at all to my taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KeefOz (1695) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - FEB 4, 2017
Poured a translucent (just) dark brown with a red tint and 5mm of light tan dense foam head that diminished slowly to a cap but laced poorly. Carbonation high, lively and coarse. Aroma of open-fire smoked bacon and smoked ham, hints of spices/cloves and maybe a hint of vanilla; very similar smoked characters to the normal Rauchbier but softer. Taste initially of sweet dark malt followed quickly by lots of open-fire like smoked ham and bacon, a hint of sweet banana and a hint of spices/cloves. Medium body (not a heavy as the standard Rauchbier). Smooth and slightly creamy with a nice smokey finish. A lot milder than I remember the standard Rauchbier. Nice.

Flanfl (742) - Lyon, FRANCE - JAN 24, 2017
Brown body, big fluffy white head. Aroma of smoke (lots), bacon (lots), malt, light caramely notes. Flavours of smoke, bacon, stronger malt profile, sweet notes. Not as smoky as the nose suggest. The smoke is well balanced by the malt. Medium-long smoke, burned wood and bacon finish, slightly dry. Medium-light body, high carbo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
