Agressive pour, nice 3 finger head that lasted quite long time. Colour is brown almost like a Dunkelweizen. High carbonation typical for Hefeweizen.
First smell you get is smoked malts like in all the the other Schlenkerla beers. Bacon comes to my mind but there no typical flavours like banana or clove.
Little banana in the taste, spicy more like pepper and a slightly bitter finish which I don`t like in my Hefeweizens. You don`t get so much smoke in the taste like the smell indicated.
Then there is a medium lasting smoke flavour on the palate.
It is not bad, but I l prefer other flavours im my Hefeweizens and I also think the smoke goes better with their Urbock or the Märzen version.

500 ml bottle into weizen glass, no bottle dating. Pours very hazy deep reddish brown color with a 2-3 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of banana, clove, toast, brown bread, wood smoke, wheat, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with well balanced fruity/spicy yeast, dark/bready malt, and wood smoke notes; with good strength. Taste of banana, clove, toast, brown bread, wheat, wood smoke, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of banana, clove, toast, brown bread, wheat, wood smoke, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, dark/bready malt, and wood smoke flavors; with a great smoke/yeast/malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and moderately crisp/creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice smoked weizen. All around well balanced fruity/spicy yeast ester, dark/bready malt, and wood smoke flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
