4.1/5 rDev +13.6%
Poured from 750mL bottle into a weizen glass.
Tons of head as I expect from a wheat beer, I had to let it settle for quite some time and do several pours to fill the glass. The head is foamy, bubly, and forms a peak that reminds me of a root beer float. The body is a cloudy brown with hues of blonde.
Initially, I only smell the wheat, clove and banana I get from most hefes, but the smoked ham aroma is there when I pass the beer under my nose a few times. Lots of sweet on the nose too.
There's the smoke! It's still not as aggressive as a rauchbier or smoked porter, but it's there and very tasty. I've got the lingering taste of smoked almonds on my tongue, but the beer starts sweeter and banana-heavy. I get some caramel like flavors coming in and out, mingling with the smoke. I like the flavor here.
I'm slightly disappointed by the mouthfeel here. It seems a bit flat, or at least lacking the burst I usually get from a hefe. It's smooth though and has a very light feel, this despite the 6.6% alcohol.
I think I like this beer. I'd drink a lot of this throughout the summer, very light, but full of flavor and the smokiness I'm a sucker for.

Thanks to Acme for this one!
Served in a mini dimpled mug at Resi's Bierstube (happy 50th to Resi's).
Review transcribed from written notes.
Murky dark mahogany brown with a towering head of tan foam that rose above the rim of the glass for a minute or so. As it dissipated, there was lots of lace in the glass, and swirling rekindled the foam easily.
Aroma was more roasty than smoky, dark roasted malts, funky yeast. Odd note of stagnant water when swirled.
Flavors of charred malt, burnt caramel, somewhat nutty and lightly bitter in the aftertaste. Body was full, fairly smooth and creamy in feel. Left more of an impression of a roast malt brown ale. This was an odd one, couldn't really get into it though I love Rauchbiers across the whole spectrum.

A: The beer is very hazy brownish amber in color. It poured with a finger high beige head that died down, leaving some lacing on the surface and a thick collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of smoked malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of smoked malts, but there are also underlying notes of wheat malts and hints of bananas from the yeast.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer didn't seem as heavy on the mouthfeel compared to other Rauchbiers and I think this was because the beer is branded as a "Rauchweizen" and is brewed with a combination of wheat and barley malts. For this reason, it is rather drinkable.

On tap at Brauhaus Schmitz.
According to the draught list, this was the only bar in the US to have this on tap, but looking at other reviews, that's obviously not true.
Served in a 0.3 liter stange, a murky, rusty brown color with a small beige head, minimal lacing. Bready, malty aroma, light roast. In the taste, caramel sweetness, bready malts, banana esters, honey ham. A little weird, but not necessarily bad. Medium body, and pretty easily drinkable, especially when paired with good German food. Decent overall, but not really worth a second visit.

Cloudy brown where light clears the edges. Small head but it did leave a solid streak arc on the glass.
Sweet and Christmassy (spicy as if there is cinnamon and nutmeg in the brew). I only notice the smoke on the third whiff.
The initial taste is fairly neutral but the finish is strong--smoky with lots of wheat present. The body is thin and the carbonation elevated. The aftertaste is short lived and a bit sour. Interesting because it is different, but not enough to seek out. It's rare, so I would order if you find it.

Orange-brown colour, clear liquid. Low brownish head that sinks down quickly.
Light smokey notes in the smell, some bitterness. Caramel and woods.
The taste got a light and well integrated smoked flavour. Caramel and elegant bitterness. Some warming alcohol and red fruits/berries. Pleasant. Malty notes with some sourness in the aftertaste.
Lager-like strong carbonation. Light yet smooth liquid.
A quite pleasant beer with smoke that is not too strong.
