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.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - MAY 10, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1 pint 0.9oz bottle into a pint glass. The label has no freshness date but it does have the abv (5.2%) and a description of the beer on the back. Appearance: The body has a nice copper colored body with clear reddish highlights. From the pour I got a tall, light tan head that makes some spotty and slick lacing on the glass. Smell: Its aroma is smoky and bready. The smoke character is very similar to imitation bacon bits and this is backed up with bready and roasted maltiness. Taste/Palate: The smoked malt is the dominant force here and it is balanced with some mild bready sweetness. Under this are some very light yeast notes and some faint herbal/mineral hops notes. The palate has a slightly slick smooth feel with a medium body and carbonation. Notes: There is a little more balance to the Weizen compared to some of there other offerings and so it is more interesting and drinkable for my taste.

Smaakt naar gerookte spek. Voelt meer als een maaltijd dan een drankje. Niet mijn ding.

Brown beer with beige head. Aroma is roasty, reminds an old barn, some smoke. Taste is roasted malt. Aftertaste is strong smoke and it gets stronger with each sip. Though, taste is a bit watery and soft, I expected more. Little sweet, slight bitterness. Very drinkable but that smokiness needs some time for getting used to. Very interesting beer.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2017 Bottle (from Koht, BB 11/2017). Pours copper with beige head. The head stays. Aroma is smoke, suasages, salt, malt, wheat. Flavor is sweet and bitter, smoke, wheat, sausages, fruits, banana. Finish is sweet wheat and smoke. Balance is excellent. Overall: great beer, 4.3 feels like underrate...

Strongly smoked aroma. Cloudy dark amber/brown with no head. Starts off smokey, then dips into something a bit sweet, ends a bit smokey. Flavor proile is rather jagged. Medium bodied and fizzy.

Pours muddy brown, opaque. Lots of tan head. Aroma is mostly smoke, with some underlying grain/flour notes. Medium body. Only mildly smokey in flavor. Not bad.

Smoked aroma. The taste did not satisfy the expectation - a watery body, the weiss almost does not feel, there is fruit like a banana and that’s something wild. It’s nice to drink, but I expected more.

dark brown color, enough head retention. smells smoked, slightly wood and roasted malt. slightly bitter taste with dry finish. medium body with medium carbonation. wheat gives some softness on the palate and this softness makes it more drinkable than other smoked beers.

Primekick (78) - POLAND - JUL 2, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2017 Barwa herbaciana, niska piana. W aromacie wędzonka, jakby szynka, gdzieś z tyłu banan. W smaku również wędzonka, słodycz, typowe klimaty weizenowe, niska goryczka. Lekkie, bardzo pijalne.

Brown color, tan long stay foam, hazy. Very nice and strong smoke aroma. Slightly sour in taste, some sweetness, decent body. Very drinkable.
