Other Information

Schlenkerla Smoke beer 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 smoke malt, 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.

  1. Jim

    I love the variations on smokey beers this brewery makes. Make sure to try this – very good.

  2. Steven Allen

    I bought this beer as it was a product of the city of Bamberg, which I had visited on holiday. It has an initial palm of violet taste which ends with a smoky finish. There also some malty flavours and a hint of hops too. The beer has a nice texture too. It’s an interesting beer but not sometimes that really appeals to me.

  3. Julian Boniface

    An acquired taste. A friends wife is from Bamberg and they always brought a crate or two back from their visits. My initial taste wasn’t that favourable, but over 36 years now, I have grown to love this and the red label as well.

  4. Gavin H

    One for the purists!

    Extremely smoky to the point it smells like a wet ashtray and leaves a lingering acrid aftertaste.

    A classic example of the style, hundreds of years of history behind this brewery which pre-dates the Purity Laws by a century.

    Well worth trying if only to experience something totally different. But don’t necessarily expect to enjoy or want to repeat the experience.

  5. Christopher Eio

    Like drinking a log cabin in the forest! Highly enjoyable.

  6. Richard Young

    I love this beer. First discovered it a few years ago. There’s a smoky savouriness to it, along side the perfectly balanced classic German Dunkel base.

  7. Kristin

    It is certainly smokey! I quite like it, but probably not a beer I would want to drink often. Having tasted this one that is part unsmoked wheat malt, I wonder how smokey the Marzen is

  8. Colin A

    Ok, this is clearly a Marmite beer, love it or hate it. It’s an acquired taste, and i’ve clearly not acquired it yet!! it is exactly as described. if you like this kind of thing you will love this but it’s not for me.

  9. Milan Macurak

    Done this beer before and it never disappoint me whatsoever ! If you like Hefe-weizen and want to try something very different, try it ! The King.

  10. CB

    Such an interesting flavour.
    It had an almost smoky smell, hard to describe, I also smelt banana.
    I could taste hints of banana and also it’s funny how it has a bit of a meaty aftertaste. It is definitely worth trying as it’s quite different.

  11. John Sanders

    This beer pours a hazy mahogany with a large, velvety head that slowly fades, and which carpets the glass with generous lacing. The aroma is quite sweet, yet it struggles to come through the peaty smokiness.. The taste is quite ‘wheaty’ with a hint of caramel, but again you need to search for it through the bacon. Smoky, but nowhere near as overpowering as the Marzen.

  12. Clive P

    Nicely sweet dark weissbier very easy on the tongue. My first try of a smoked beer and it was plesantly different. excellent value too!

  13. David Hanson

    A pleasant surprise, only having had the Marzen before. This is slightly less smokey & the weizen character is not over-powered by the smoke. Very good!

  14. WJ

    These Schlenkerla beers are really interesting and well worth trying. It’s like bacon beer and although that might sound a bit unpleasant it’s not. I preferred the wheat one to the lager.

  15. Steven Taylor

    Wow it’s like a liquid smoked sausage, really rich full flavour and big smoked malt.
    A couple would be enough but I will definitely buy again.

  16. MG

    I couldn’t believe you guys stocked this. Haha what a pleasant surprise. It’s good and unique. Smoke flavor / some describe it as bacon. It comes from the old part of the city in Bamberg. I’m told that it’s characteristic flavor comes from a historical technique originally intended to preserve it. Worth giving a try for sure!

  17. Stuart Ferguson

    Never stared at a beer with such wonder before! Will definitely grab more than one next time.

  18. FoggyMountainMan

    Smoke flavour is less pronounced than on the Schlenkerla marzen which was too much for me. Not for everyone, including me. Might try it again some time though.
