Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier WeizenAecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Weizen
Notes: 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.

50cl bottle, 1m past bb.

Dark amber, decent foam which fades rather quickly for a weizen.

Nose is mostly Schlenkerla's trademark smoke, albeit more subdued than for the rest of their offering. In this already aged bottle it covers any weizen aroma.

Taste finally brings the banana and cloves on the side of the pleasant smoke. Lively but for weizen, restrained, carbonation, makes it all very drinkable. Just a tad of bitterness at the end distracts slightly.

Overall, not as magical as the rest of Schlenkerla, but a very good mixture. Loving grodziskie myself, I would suggest they try smoking the wheat as well. This is a bit too cautious an effort wrt smoke.

I like smoke beers in general, but I didn't care much for this brew. Oak wood smoke doesn't seem to agree with me. The beech wood smoke of their marzen and ur bock is lighter, with less of a sour element to it.

500 mL bottle from the LCBO; best before Jan 2016 and served just below cellar temperature.

Pours a muddy copper-amber colour, producing just over one finger of dense, creamy-looking, light beige-coloured head. Retention is decent; it seeps away slowly over five minutes or so, leaving behind a smooth cap and foamy collar. Lovely aroma that is dominated by beechwood-smoked malt, reminiscent of ham or maybe smoked salmon. Mild hints of banana, clove spice and bready, wheaty sweetness are less attention-grabbing, but play an important role nonetheless.

This is a very nice cross between a German-style wheat beer and an authentic rauchbier. You get a hint of the smoke at first, but it is wheaty, bready malts and some caramel sweetness that provide the initial burst of flavour - followed soon after by notes of plum and applesauce. Beechwood smoke and clove spice take over toward the finish, providing a bacon-esque savoriness alongside hints of earth and wood. Medium-bodied, with restrained carbonation levels and quite a smooth, soft feel on the palate. While I usually take my time with their märzen, this little number is just way too easy to knock back - I'd eagerly drink another, but I'm saving the other bottle for the slow cooker.

Final Grade: 4.3, an impressive A grade. As a big German wheat beer fan, I'm probably a little biased as far as this one goes - but I just have to say that I really prefer Schlenkerla's Rauchbier Weizen over their märzen. This one's smokiness, though still a strong presence, is less "in-your-face" when compared to their other brews, and a much more drinkable beverage for it. Keeping in mind that I can still count the number of true rauchbiers I've had on one hand, this is definitely my favourite so far - though I can surely understand why serious smoke beer aficionados would prefer one of this brewery's bolder offerings. A definite must-try in my books; one that I hope to see imported on a more regular basis.

Served cool from 500ml bottle into weizen glass. I'm not the biggest rauch fan, but will try to give it a fair hearing.

L) Chestnut brown, some big lumps of yeast falling down as it is poured from the bottle. Very hazy as per any hefeweizen. Head is a disappointment, thing bubbly film is all you get.

S) All rauch, no weizen. Burnt charcoal, maybe hints of sweet malt. At least you are left in no doubt that this is a rauchbier.

T) First, a hint of sweetness, followed very quickly by the taste of hotdogs, with a lingering burnt wood flavour. Sweetness is always there, before and after the smokey hit. The smoke is also lingering. To get any sense of this being a weizen, you have to stop drinking for a couple of minutes, and there is a bit of wheat sourness there, always with hotdog smoke. Really interesting that a drink can give you more complex taste and flavour than a food.

F) Similar pleasant carbonation to many weizens. The aftertaste is a lot of smoke, a bit of sourness, slight hints of sweetness.

O) I had this one time before at the start of my craft / quality beer drinking years and didn't like it. Now that I have had a bit of appreciation for rauch biers (all Schlenkerla, I think) I can appreciate this one. It's difficult to imagine that there is a better rauch weizen in the world, but if there is I will surely seek it out and try it.

A - Pours an extremely dark brown/ruby, almost black at first glance. Forms a nice finger and a half of creamy slightly tan head. Whispy lacing.
S - Literally liquid bacon. Not just the smoke, it has the rich fatty and meaty aromas. There are some malts there too, but it literally smells like a plate of hot, freshly fried bacon. For me that's delicious.
T - Good, but unfortunately not nearly as wild as the aroma would lead you to believe it will be. It's much more subdued with malts and balanced.
O - A fine smoke beer or Rauchbier.
V - Single bottle, moderately good value.

The beer comes in a caramel brown color with a frothy head.

The aroma is an interesting combination of smokey woodiness aloong with banana, clove, and caramel.

The flavor follows with those follows being a really interesting balance between the meaty and woody, smokey, almost ashy flavors then with the bready banana and spice. It also has a good medium mouthfeel.

At first, the combination may seem like it does not work, but as it warms up and with time, one can see where the two balance and bounce between each other.

This is another stellar beer by Schlenkerla. Not my favorite from them, but another example of what they do so well, a clean wonderful German ale/lager with smoked flavors.

500ml bottle poured into a weizen glass.

Cloudy brown garnet in color, the pour builds up very thick frothy khaki head that well retains itself with very good retention before slowly collapsing to an everlasting foamy layer atop and leaving some lacing patch and spot on the glass-side.

The smokiness is throughout the aroma with its pronounced smoked meat, charred wood, and fire. The weizen character is also there to bring good crispness of citrus and clove spice. Sweet banana too as well as bread and caramel.

The tastes has proper balance between the smoked of rauch and fruity yeast of weizen. The smokiness is much prominent with its smoked meat, bbq-like, and charred wood while fruity ester and spice undertone with notes of crisp citrus, mild banana, clove spice, wheat grain, and sweet breadiness.

Medium body with smooth mouthfeel and quite lively carbonation, the feeling is crisp and well-rounded yet quite refreshing. Finish is very dry.

Smoked weizen from the Master and when the Master say, you listen. Pour it with yeast for full enjoyment.

Brown in color with a dull mahogany glow when held to the light. You can see the effervescence that's present as billows of tiny bubbles rise to the surface supporting a thick, creamy ivory head. The head holds extremely well throughout the glass but leaves little lace. The body is medium with a very fine and effervescent carbonation that gives a creamy mouthfeel. The aroma is outstanding with a very rich, deep, Beechwood smokiness. The flavor starts with a lightly sweet, fruity, and gently tangy maltiness that reveals some soft caramel notes as it warms in the mouth, and then a burst of soft smokiness immediately following the swallow. The smokiness lingers for a few moments and then receeds (at least partially) from the palate. At this point much of the yeast character is noticeable with a gentle clove that works extremely well with the residual smoke character, as well as some vanilla, very light banana, and soft phenolic (plastic). Very nice! The smoke character is extremely well done - never overwhelming the palate, but with enough presence to be continually noticeable throughout the entire serving. Absolutely worth trying!

Look: root beer candy color, cloudy, off white head that stays just on the rim. Nice initial head.

Smell: smoked ham, smoke, beef jerky, fire pit ash, smoked bacon, smoke, more smoke. Banana sweetness underneath the barrage of smoke.

Taste: more balanced than the marzen, as this is half rauschbeir and half weizen. Initial smoke note that gives way to the wheat, which manifests as banana, simple grain and sort of a corn thing which tastes like a result of the combination of smoked malt and wheat.

Feel: nice body from the wheat. Full while not showing any hint of alcohol, as it's not high abv. Velvety, on par with the best trappist ales in mouthfeel

Overall: I love this beer. I love the marzen too but haven't had it in awhile and haven't compared the two. Initially i was disappointed by the prevelenace of wheat on the palate, but it actually really works once you get past the novelty of the smoke flavor. The marzen is full steam ahead, this one is about balance and drinkability.

Presentation: 500 ml bottle with no freshness date poured into a mug.

Look: Hazy chestnut brown with an off white two finger head. Very good head retention.

Smell: Smoke up front and finishes with some malts and wheat.

Taste: Follows the nose. Moderate smoke flavor up front and finishes with malts. Well balanced, the malts are substantial enough that the flavor doesn't wash out after the smoke.

Feel: Medium mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, and slightly dry.

Overall: A very good beer. Not as smoke forward as some of their other offerings but good nonetheless. As noted in "Taste" there is a very good balance between smoke and malt flavors.

Dark brown pour. Mediums body. Immediate smoked sausage and smoked cheese flavor. It’s as if the God Zeus ground up smoked cheese and sausage into beer form. Tasty but not excessive. Perfect compliment to all smoked food or steak. Oh wow. Delicious.

This beer poured a small bubbly white head that died rather quickly.
The body was a dark brown/reddish hue.

The nose was simply amazing. Smoke, malt, ham, brown sugar, dark smoke, caramel, toffee, smoked gouda. It actually reminded me like a lot of an old old fireplace. Easily one of the most amazing smelling beers ever.

The taste was surprisingly light and highly carbonated. Yet again smoke, malt, coffee, caramel, toffee, meat, a faint touch of wheat and yeast. A light and smooth earthy hop bitterness. What's really interesting with this beer is the touch of wheat beer taste. It has this amazing rauchbier taste with just a splash of weizen to it.

Overall just another outstanding beer from this brewery. The wheat touch throws me off a little, but it is a weizen after all. Not the beer for everyone, but if you like smokey beers this is a must try.

I've been dying to try this Smokey bandit for a while and boy is it Smokey. It pours a thick light-tan head. Its colour is deep dark brown. Its aroma is burnt wood, roasted/burnt wheat, and a smoked sausage quality. The taste is dark and smokey with a nice string of burnt wheat and malt. Overall this is a great smoke beer and I will recommend this beer to anyone who likes smoke beers.

"Listen! You smell something?"

With the advent of beeradvocate.com, it's been exceedingly difficult to buy beers on blind faith. This often takes the surprise out of tasting great beers. Fortunately, I had never read a review of this beer prior to tasting it.

I was completely overwhelmed by Schlenkerla's taste. Take the best smoked meat you've ever tasted and ferment it... that's what this is like. Never in a million years would I have thought you could successfully brew such a wonderful smoke beer.

If made a top 5 beer list, this would certainly be on it. It's just too unique to overlook. From the first whiff you take, you're captivated. That's all I can say.

You really ought to try this one. It must be one of the beer community's best kept secrets.

Poured from 16.9 oz bottle into glass beer mug.

A - Hazy brown, with no head to speak of, no lacing, and a simple off-white collar. Lots of visable yeast sediment.

S - Expected smoke, bacon, jerky, mesquite aromas with an interesting accentuation from wheat malt. The wheat took this beer from smelling like a bag of dried meat to smelling like fresh cooked BBQ.

T - Wood and smoke, less intense than the nose, and all deepened by the wheat twang.

M - Fairly carbonated and light bodied, with a smoothness from the suspended yeast.

D - After having Aecht's Marzen I didn't think any rauchbier would be good enough to have more than a couple of, but this one surprised me. The lightness and depth of flavor make this highly sessionable, style considered.

Dusky tawny that becomes ripe apricot with an infusion of bright sunlight. The beer appears to be clear on first glance, but with a little determined squinting, fine, suspended specks come into view. The classy head of orangish ecru foam is equal parts creamy and frothy. Surface bubbles pop in slow motion, leaving behind transient, shallow craters like raindrops on a placid pond.

Sweet smoke. The nose is much less forceful than the nose on Rauchbier Marzen. There would be no point in smoking the hell out of all their offerings, so I'm glad to see gradations based on the individual styles. There's a light, almost fruity, aspect to the aroma that is some kind of enjoyable. Any hope of appreciating wheat would be dashed by even half as much smoke however. Tantalizing, but not overwhelming. Very well done.

I like it. I don't love it. I find myself appreciating its lightness, but my penchant for bigger beer has me pining for the marzen. I have to say, though, they've managed to distinguish this one from the bigger beer. Weizen is modestly malted with surprisingly sour underpinnings. As in the nose, wheat (a bland grain at the best of times) isn't appreciated per se on the palate. A light fruitiness more than manages to hold its own with the smoke.

Light tendrils of sweet wood smoke weave in and out, dissipating long before the taste buds send up the white flag of surrender. The tart finish is also sneaky sweet and contains diminishing echoes of... say it with me now... smoke.

Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Weizen would be an excellent place to start for someone who is interested in the rauchbier style, but who is afraid of being overwhelmed. Unfortunately, the marzen spoiled me, in that less body and less smoke just seem like less of a very good thing.

Appearance: Poured with 1inch of bubbly tan head that dissipated quickly (2 minutes) to a thin covering around the edge of the glass, and is not leaving much of any lacing. The beer is a very translucent brownish gold color.

Smell: Up front very smokey, then some sweetness, malt and fruit, is detectable once your get a little use to the smokeyness. As it warms a lot more fruity aromas are detectible, similar to white grapes or apples. The smoke smell is present but not overwhelming (once you get a little use to it). While I sit here and smell it from a small distance, I feel like I am on the beach at Lake Superior with a campfire going on a 65 degree night. Smokey, but also crisp.

Taste: Bold smoke flavor up front (as expected), then a small fruity apple or grape taste, followed by a bigger sweet malt flavor. At the end there is a bitter smoke flavor left in the mouth, but again the smoke is not overwhelming.

Mouthfeel: Heavier syrupier bodied than I expected up front, but the bubbles and slight bitterness make it seem a bit lighter.

Overall: For me this is very easy to drink. The strong smoke up front starts to diminish and other very interesting flavors/aromas appear, which compliment the smoke very nicely. I might have to go buy another one of these... :-)

The use of beechwood-smoked barley has turned this Weizen quite dark; nevermind the customary look of a bright sunny afternoon, this Bavarian wheat beer has the amber twilight of dusk. It's also got a fluffy cloud-like head. Nonetheless, everything looks positive so far.

The beer smells like a delicatessen: back bacon and assorted smoked meats are the first things that come to mind. Much of the typical banana and clove aromatics are buried under a big pile of campfire embers and/or wrapped into a thick kielbasa casing. Still, some fruity esters and spicy phenols survive, making this resemble a gourmet sausage of some kind.

No kidding! Although unequivocally German, this particular Rauchbier tastes a little like Bulgarian Kebapche or the sausages from Italy's Piedmont that use allspice, nutmeg, cloves and the like to impart a pleasing spiciness to all the smoky, meaty and more savory notes.

Heck, as if there wasn't enough dimension as is, the malts also lend an agreeable and very nutty sweetness similar to that of this brewery's Märzen Rauchbier. The bruised pear, plum, banana, and apple esters meld wonderfully with this ale's distinctive fennel and caraway flavours.

Not only are Schlenkerla Rauchbiers some of the world's unique and interesting beers, but they're also among the most food versatile too. The addition of background banana and spice flavours to the customary meat, smoke, and malt makes the Weizen particularly easy to adapt to any grilled, braised, or marinated meats (pork!) as well as wild rice, root vegetables, foraged or cabbage-based dishes.

Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Weizen offers all the meaty and campfire qualities I love about the Märzen but in a leaner, lighter package. There's really no reason to feel intimidated here as the singed, rough-hewn wood notes are even more deeply entwined with sweet malt, fruity esters, and spicy/savory phenolics. It's one that'll certainly change peoples' impressions of beer.

Bottle from Premier Gourmet, 500ml into a weizen glass. Long awaited to get to open one of these.

Pours a muddy dark brown, with some shades of mahogany and and chestnut around the edges. Tan head, with some floaties in the body (maybe I shouldn't have poured the yeast in?). Big sticky lacing, great retention and good amounts of carbonation stream up from the bottom of the glass. Nose has some smoked bananas, wheat and a touch of spice that the smoke has overtaken. Beautiful smoked wood/meats in true Schlenkerla fashion. Taste has a faint sourness at the beginning (although this disappears with warmth), with a creamy and chewy mouthfeel initially revealing some bananas and smoked wood/malts. Thins out as it moves over the palate, leaving behind more smoke. Mouthfeel starts off fuller than it finishes; residual smoke on the palate and a faint sense of the weizen. Would've loved more body in here ala Weihenstephaner. Overall a good offering, if a bit one-dimensional and thin at times.

On-tap 8/31/11 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a dark reddish brown color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains smoked malts, some lager yeast and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a big smokiness up front that you would expect from this type of beer. Then a mild caramel and fruit sweetness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and there’s a mild but complementary hops presence that creates a good balance. The after-taste is slightly smoky and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is good beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.

Poured from a bottle into my trusty Troegs pint glass.

Pours a dark, translucent brown with yellowy edges. Pretty hard to see through. There's a FAT 2+ inch head as it collects in the glass, I had to wait a few moments for it to recede to pour more. The lacing is sticky and fluffy at the same time. Quite the looker, this beer.

The smell... oh God the smell. This needs its own paragraph, because I have no idea where to begin with this. It is absolutely like no other beer I've smelled before. I'm getting aromas of smoked pork and sausages over an open wood fire. This smell definitely belongs in a delicatessen or a butcher shop or something, not a beer! Absolutely crazy. I can detect just a hint of that weizen malt given a few deep sniffs, but it's very well hidden behind all that smokiness.

I thought I was prepared for the taste, but just... damn. Smoky meats with just a bit of a charred flavor... how does something like this get into a beer? As I'm marveling at this remarkable feat of brewmastery, the subtle malty backbone appears, reminding me that I'm drinking a weizen-style beer. Wheat and yeastiness are subdued, but definitely present as they round out the back end. I get just a subtle hint of weizen banana and fruit flavor as the brew rides down smooth. The minimal aftertaste doesn't have any more wheat for me, however, instead being full of smoked meat. Hops are undetectable, and there is no bitterness. Just a slight bit of astringency from the wheat. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a subtle weizen chewiness. Finishes smooth and dry.

After getting past the initial sensory overload, I found this beer to be quite the quaffable brew. I picked a weizen-esque rauchbier for my first experience into the style and I'm glad I did, because I'm able to latch onto that something I like and compare and contrast it with the extremely unique smokiness. It was certainly an eye-opening drink.

15 December 2005, Best Before Apr 06

Dark brown with a medium sized pillowy head, not much lacing. Smoky aromas, but not overpowering as I hade anticipated, since this was my first smoked beer. Tastes of wood smoke, smoked tofu, but still with the noticeable wheaty and slightly fruity characteristics of a weizen. Fairly smooth and gentle mouthfeel. Nice to try something very different.
