Wow, did I really drink this? I can't believe that I have come from pounding Killian's Red and JW Dundee's Honey Lager in college to drinking a smoked wheat beer from Germany.
My first thought of smoked beers was "Ewww...!" But then I came to apreciate them. But when I asked for Spezial Rauchbier at Mug's Ale House, and all they had was this, I was even more wary. I mean, come on, a smoked hefe?
But I tell you, this beer was delicious. Nice dark amber color, perfect pillowy wheat beer head, hints of (surprise!) smoke and clove in the aroma. The taste was like one of the richest, most impressive hefewiezen's I've ever had, complete with banana, clove, slight citrus, a biscuity maltiness, and spicy hops, followed by a full, firm, but not overwhelming flavor of smoke. Where something like the Alaska Smoked Porter reminds you off a charred steak, this tastes like a grilled banana dessert of some sort. Sound gross? Yep. Taste gross? No way.
Nevertheless, awesome with a bacon cheeseburger, especially Mug's bacon cheeseburger.

Poured into a Chimay goblet, leaves a nice, thick head with decent head retention and lacing. Very cloudy brown color, with some bubbles coming up. Looks nice at the very least.

The smell is complex - loads of smokiness, nice malt presence, a bit of wheat and ester flavors. Hops are not very prominent.

It's got a very strong taste of smoked meats, loads and loads of smoke. It's almost all smoke, but there is a moderate taste of wheat and some clove or banana estery flavors towards the end. A very subtle taste of hops prevents it from being too overbearing.

The mouthfeel is really excellent, quite creamy and slightly carbonated. Extremely easy to drink, yet has a very distinct, strong flavor. An extremely well-made beer.

Poured into a standard pint glass, nice huge light tan head fills half the glass. Color is a dark copper with amber hues and hints.

Smell is milder smoke than the bock, with hefe yeast notes of banana clove and spice coming through, subtle hints of grains and wheat.

Taste is mild smooth smoke with a good breadiness, and similar hefe yeast notes of banana, clove, and spice.

Mouthfeel is so smooth, the wheat and fuller yeast flavors off set the drying qualities of the smoke.

Overall, I like this version better than the bock in terms of drinkability, very smooth smoke flavors and good hefe flavors to mingle.

Pours an orangey dark-brown, faintly cloudy, with a creamy beige head that lasts the glass.

Aroma is a nice blend of sweet, rich smoke, with notes of grain, banana, clove, and phenols. Suggestions of cocoa.

Enters with a melange of smoke, biscuity, toasty, bready malt, hints of carob, with aromatic notes of banana, clove and phenols in a lively middle, and a smooth, dark, rich finish with notes of smoke and brown bread. A hint of warming alcohol too.

Medium to full bodied, dextrinous, mildly creamy, with a lively carbonation.

Wonderfully balanced between smoke, malt, and weizen yeast aromatics. I bought this bottle at the Whole Foods in Chelsea in NYC, and it is in superb shape. Time to go back for more . . .

the one i think i've had the least thinking it would be to conflicting... actually quite a developed balance between smoked and wheat malt. fantastic balance of smokiness and mild sweetness. and i don't mean hef sweet. this is a savory peppery hef. and i think most mineral crisp. quite drinkable as the 'bacon beers' seen to be a food accompaniment and sort of a novelty for the status-quo of american brew pub beer drinkers. would say best for chicken... fantastic for grill zucchini and mozzarella...
nice floral hints, mild fruit notes and a dry floral and smoke finish. especially in the murk of the pour. doens't dominate the palate and would have something else after.

actually quite redundent to figure the best offering from this brewery as they are all different and strong. it should be had... the grade is irrelevant. i personally like this and the urbock most.

Thanks to GreenWBush for pointing me in the right direction for this one and for more to come.
Poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear amber color with tons of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. The head on this one is white and fluffy thick. Looks great.
The small is so grand- I love this smokey aroma. Smells like my clothes would smell after spending a night in front of a campfire.
The smokiness in the taste is sublime. Slightly sweet malty flavor as well.
The mouthfeel is so nice- crisp, with a good level of carbonation that burns the tongue.
This beer is so tasty, I could drink it all night. I originally thought a smoke beer was a one-a-nighter, but I've changed my mind.
Now I know it for sure- I love smoke beers. I have two more from this brewery and am very much looking forward to trying them.

The color is a cloudy, brownish gold, with a off white creamy head building about two fingers high. It dissipates slow, leaving spotted lacing.
The smell is smoked bacon, and some fruit background, like orange.
The mild smokey flavors are up front, sweetened by orange notes in the background. Yeast flavors take the middle, while the finish is a mild combination of everything.
Nice medium to light bodied Hefeweizen with exceptional flavor!

A - Huge eggshell head, thick and soapy. Dark brown effervescent murky body, looks like a dunkelweizen. Sloppy drools of lacing.

S - Ashy smoked bacon with a sweet honey glaze. These Schlenkerla rauchbiers are just my favourite smelling beers on the planet. A joy.

T - Follows the nose yet doesnt quite match the intensity. In addition to the smoke, bacon and honey, there are light notes of banana and wheat.

M - At first quite light in the body but then it becomes quite chewy and full bodied. Moderate carbonation.

O - I absolutely love it. I should add that this bottle was 2 months past its BB date.

On draft at Churchkey in D.C.

The beer appears a hazy, dirty, yellow hue with a sizable head. Head retention is good and plenty of lacing is visible upon the glass. The aroma is just awesome. Schlenkerla rauchbiers are the benchmark of the style, and this beer is no exception. Peat and smoke scents mingle with banana, clove, burning wood, and subtle alcohol notes. The flavor is well balanced and delicious. If an Islay scotch could be a sessionable beer, it would be this. This is the perfect union of hefeweizen and smoke beer. Great stuff.

Pours hazy garnet with a Brobdingnagian tan head. Roasty, woody, smokey aroma with malt sweetness in the background. The smoked malt is balanced out by a banana and clovey yeast profile and wheat crispness in the taste. The mouthfeel is medium to full with hefe style high carbonation. Oily smokeyness, light bitterness and hefe yeast esters in the long finish.

A fantastic Rauchbier. Super complex and the mix of Weizen flavors makes it very interesting. Highly recommend this one.

Pours a hazy medium amber from the yeast. Exceptional massive head, lacing and retention. An almost perfect nose of meaty bacon like smoke balanced against a fruit like sweetness with a slight spicy note. The smoke aroma is not as intense as their Marzen and Urbock variants and is expertly balanced with sweetness. Light medium body that is somewhat slick in texture, but also has a grainy wheat aspect as well. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the finish and middle. The outstanding flavor profile is not as intense as their other variants. It is more balanced with malt sweetness and a bit more complex. The delicious smoke character is always present, but never overpowering. It begins with a moderate campfire bacon like smoke over a sweet background that has both biscuit and caramel characteristics. The middle allows the hops to impart a rather low level bitterness that has a clove like note as it effervesces and a banana quality as it fades. The finish is dryer than the others, somewhat crisp, sweeter and leaves you with a touch of clove and a lingering smokiness as if you've sitting around a campfire. Outstanding and an excellent introduction into the Rauchbier style that is not quite as intense as their Marzen and Urbock variants.

Brown in hue with a tawny-amber-gold highlight, fairly hazy but animation racing towards the head is noticeable. Speaking of head, it was massive like a typical Weizen, this is always a lovely sight, it was not as rocky as a Hefe and the head retention was not as good as most good Weizens. It quickly faded to a bubbly cap that was about a ¼” in height. This cap lasted the entire consumption, impressive. There was no subsequent lacing however, disappointing. The nose has good potency. I wanted it louder but I’m greedy. The smoky aromas launch the nose in a direction far from a typical Weizen, as expected. I have grown to love the bouquet of Rauchbier, oh the sausages, campfires, smoked bacon or is that ham? I just love the smoky, fatty, meaty smell. Maybe I am being susceptible but I think I got a whiff of banana. No, I do smell banana. The bouquet is quite inviting and well-rounded. Maybe it is just a little too soft but it is a wheat beer after all. Regardless, it is drinking time! The nose is a bloody liar! Bastard. Okay, that is a bit harsh. The palate is more indicative of what I was expecting with a Rauchbier-Weizen. Indeed the palate has the beechwood, smoky flavors but they are just lighter in flavor (especially in comparison to the smell), I detected the sausages and ham cooking on a smoldering campfire. Lovely. But the Weizen aspects are also detectable, mainly at the finish. This is when the cloves and bananas kick in. Yummy! The aftertaste opens up even more, lemons and wheat flavors really elevate this beer but the charred wood is never far behind. The palate is far less powerful than I as expecting and in this case that is a good thing. This is beautifully crafted; it is very flavorful but amazingly refreshing. The mouthfeel is also seduced by the wheat influences, it is smooth and a bit silky on the tongue, the carbonation is tickle too small, and the bulk is around medium/medium-light. The mouthfeel is very satisfying, it is much smaller than I was expecting but, yet again, I was pleasantly surprised! It is also amazingly drinkable. This might be my new go-to Weizen! Yeah right, like this is available in Nebraska! I bought a bottle in Iowa City. I will get more, either in KC or Iowa City. Rauchbier … I am in love!

Quite cloudy brown amber, almost sludgey, with a filmy head of mocha brown to off-white foam. Reasonable lacing. Head isn't massive or solid, but the body looks good.

Huge smoky, rustic aroma on the nose, wood fire, bacon and charcoal. Smells delicious. However, it's also slightly sweet - as though the bacon has been honey glazed. Delicious. So powerful, but so beautiful. I swear it's the best rauch nose I've had.

Mouthfeel is quite smooth, very pleasantly and delicately coating the mouth with smoke. And the smoke is the dominant character on the palate. There's hints of bitterness and a slight underlying sweetness, perhaps toffee, but these are sub-elements to the very beautiful smoke flavours.

This is a great rauch, smoky and powerful, but with the edges just slightly rounded by the wheat. I think it has amazing balance, leaving it supremely drinkable. Probably the best rauch I've ever had. Top notch.

25oz bottle into stange glass at 50 degrees.

Pours with a healthy 3-4F of creamy, tan head over a deep ruby tea colored body which is plenty cloudy. Very little carbonation showing. Light lacing.

Nice smokey aromas fill the glass, with a surprisingly noticeable apple pie quality as well - decent sweet spices. Smells like Fall.

Taste kicks off plenty roasty, with a slightly charred, woody flavor accompanied by a little more citrus (lemon) than was in the aroma, and some clove. A little richer on the palate than a typical weizen, with the smoke rounding out and balancing the crispness. Silky smooth on the palate, and a bit juicy.

This was highly drinkable on its own, however I'd recommend enjoying it with some smoked pork and/or sharp cheese. This would kill with a roast pork n' provolone sammy.

I truly love the Urbock Rauchbier these folks make. I was looking for one the night I had this. Unforgiving smoke and I LIKE IT!!! This is beer with attitude, beer to drink with BBQ and great German sausages. Not for the the faint-hearted but a treat for the bold. That being said... it's good, very good, but not quite as good at the Urbock.
Pours a cloudy, amber-brown with a big fluffy, creamy head that left no lace.
Smell is smoked sausage and malt.
Taste is smoke, roasted malt, hops with just a hint of fruit in the back.
Medium/full bodied with light effervescence all over.
Drinkability is very high. And I wiill gladly have anything this brewery puts out.

Poured from a 0.5L bottle into a 0.5L Weihenstephan glass.

A: Muddy brown body topped with a fairly tight off white head. Retention is incredible.

S: Tremendous mixture of weiss and delicious smoke. I wasn't sure how the combo would play out, but the aroma is telling me it's great.

T: Highly smoky, and I like it. As the smoke fades, the palate clears a bit, but you're then hit with yeast driven flavor, followed by more smoke. Finishes with a slight sweetness, and a very mild bitterness.

M: Higher than normal carbonation is fine for this.

O: Probably tastes just like you'd except. A German wheat with prominent smoke flavor. I think the combination works well, and the beer still ends up being fairly refreshing.

Cloudy rusty amber, with a huge and slowly dissipating head of off-white carbonation. Lace is spotty.

Nose is definitely smoky, no question. I get a salty bacon character up front. Very unique and somehow appealing.

Taste is sweet and smoky, like a mix of open pit barbecue woodiness, with some fruit in there somewhere. Odd but very nice. Seems light in body, but most certainly heavy on flavor. There's a sharpness in texture, too, suggesting the wheat making its presence known among the smoky-delicious malts. This is a unique and delicious beer!

i loved the urbock, so why not the weizen? this pours out hazy, dark...somewhat murky. big fat weizen style head that was extremely rocky. right on. the nose of course is very smoky, though not as intense as the urbock...think canadian bacon, grilled hamsteaks etc. in the mouth its slightly heavier than your typical weizen, though it is crisp and full of carbonation. in the taste department your looking at a very light malt, the wheat flavor is minimal but seems to cut down on the smoked flavors. balanced. light spices here and there and it all rounds out to be a very drinkable, outstanding smoke beer/weizen/anything. a milder rauch that still satisfies this smoke addict.

$2.99 a bottle

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.

A- clear toasty brown, golden highlights with a dense stiff amazingly nice capper of beige foam. the stuff is bad ass. and it's taking so long to settle that i'm growing impatient as my area fills with the gentle aroma of smokes meats. poured gently, there's no haze from the yeast. lace is very thick and 3-dimensional, becoming patchy and crusty as it slides down.

S- bacon and smoked ham, first off. campfire, bonfire, whatever. the main thing is-- barbecue pit. a big fat smoker with a half a pig inside. and maybe a turkey as well. subtle yeast and wheat aromas hide behind the smoke. some fruity tartness, clove, and grilled banana. a truly mouthwatering aroma.

T- meaty, grilled, all goes without saying. i was unsure how this would compare to their unsmoked (though still smokey) helles, and i gotta give it to this weizen. the aroma is dominated by smoke but the taste is a great balance between a light flavored weizen, mildly sour fruits, and beechwood smoke. apart from some very faint clove type spice, much of the yeast flavors are blanketed by smoke while the tart snappiness of wheat pulls through. it's the perfect counterpart to the savory barbecue element and harmoniously they ride. a light touch of hops is merely a bitter accent in the long smoked out finish.

MF- some acidic feel, and lighter than i expected, but still with the plush body of wheat. carbonation is lively and active and the bubbles seems to move in intelligent unison like a school of herring. finish has a dry, smoke bath feeling.

D- with such intriguing flavor and good looks, not to mention an enticing aroma, this is a unique specimen that any 'real' beer lover should try. it's a man's beer, and unless a (american) girl has a bacon fetish, she might be turned off by this one. all things considered, it's as crisp and refreshing as any light bodied weizen. i wish the bottle was bigger, much bigger, but after one i'd move on to something non smokey.

Poured into a weizen glass.

A - Hazy, reddish-brown coloration which produced a nice bit of froth. Retention was solid and it laced in unique layers.

S - Malty, sweet aroma with a fresh fire in the fireplace sort of backing.

T - Wow, perfectly balanced. Sweet bananas and maple bacon. Breakfast in a glass!

M - Light bodied, smoky aftertaste, good carbonation level.

D - Fantastic beer. Not as smoke-filled as their Marzen, but that's okay, this brew is a different sort of beast, and a tasty one at that. Highly recommended.

I had this beer at the brewery in Bamberg on Friday June 17th, 2005.

Appearance: Served in a typical bavarian weizen glass the beeer is dark red with a touch of brownish orange. The head is white and the beer has another weird "sub head" that is below the top of the fluid. There is a head that exists lightly in the fluid part of the beer that shows through the side of the glass. Very interesting looking stuff. I'd never seen a submerged head below the bubbly head before. It almost looks like the cascading creaminess that you seen on a stout, but it isn't moving, it's just hanging out under the head. Yummy.

Smell: Citrusy with smoke, pepper, and some clove spiciness.

Taste: Soft citrus opening, dry wheaty flavor that dries my whole mouth. Notes of clove and pepper just as in the nose. Fruity and bready with a light smoke aftertaste. It tastes like what you would expect. It's a good weissbeer with some smokiness included.

Mouthfeel: Ccreamy, smooth, soft yet still having a nice drying affect on the palate.

Drinkability: This is a good weissbeer that is well balanced and tasty. The smoked aspects adds some nice flavor and complexity. It's much better straight from the tap than in the bottle though.

Shared w/ mom at Zeno's earlier this afternoon.

A- Body is a quite hazy muddy, murky brown color with that has a slightly dynamic fogginess. Served with a nice soapy 1 finger white head with great retention though little lacing is left behind in the glass.

S- Nose is very smoky-filled with smoked meat and an overall summer cookout or campfire impression. VERY faintly behind this is an impression of banana bread.

T-Flavor is very well done and balanced. The smokiness is definitely there but serves as an overtone to the classic weizen flavors behind it. Flavor is very bready with the bready yeast probably being the main character and there is a slight hint of banana and clove there as well. The finish is all smoke and bread.

M- Great-almost cask-like. Soft carbonation with a full, very smooth and bready light to medium weight body.

D- This is a great German brew. Classic hefe (though color is dunkel flavor profile reminds me more of a hefe) meets classic rauchbier. Wonderfully smooth and drinkable-underrated.

Purchased at the BSF bar, GBBF 06. BB 11/2006, served lightly chilled in a weizen glass.

A: murky chestnut-brown colour, with bright reddish glows; coming with an ever-growing and fast-effervescnet creamy beige head, huge, rocky yet extremely tight and frothy... very slowly settling down to a thin neck sustaining throughout the drink; lively fizziness underneath
S: salty-sweet char-grilled bacon, mashed beans, soy-sauce, as well as Chinese tea-smoked prunes as well as salt-marinated prunes abound, very intense but milder than Schlenkerla's Rauchbier Maerzen; I'd like to imagine there's wheat-ish aroma of a weizen, but apparently even if there is it's overwhelmed by the smokiness... Yet a good swirl does help to bring about a mild banana-ish note of weizen. Pretty impressive, but just like their Maerzen, the nose is slightly too overpowering.
T: most unusual flavour, so complex yet meticulously balanced... the smoked "meaty" maltiness upfront seamlessly dovetails with dunkel weizen's lightly fruity, banana-ish, yet also chocolate-malty edge... much more interesting than a normal dunkel weizen's boring profile (to me); the aftertaste is composed of chewy roast-nutty malts, salty-sweet sea-weed, roast barley tea, very mild wheat-ish grains, mixed with a soothingly spicy edge of clove(+nutmeg?) and a quietly manifesting dryish-bitterness... The flavour is so colourful, with lots of elements to pick up and play with...
M&D: softly-carbonated, very smooth on the palate yet full of body; in a sense the combination of smoked malts and weizen works surprisingly, exceptionally well, at least to my taste--it gets the best of both worlds, if I may, and should outperform both Dunkel Weizen and Raubier Maerzen!! A jolly nice, satisfying beer this is, and I long to taste it fresh on keg in the near future~~
