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.
Schlenkerla, the historic smoked beer brewery. In the middle of the old part of Bamberg, directly beneath the mighty cathedral, one can find the smoked beer brewery Schlenkerla. First mentioned in 1405 as “house of the blue lion” and now run by the Trum family in the 6th generation, it is the fountain of Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier (Original Schlenkerla Smokebeer), Bamberg’s Specialty for centuries. The Original Schlenkerla Smokebeer is here at the brewery tavern still being tapped directly from the wooden barrel according to old tradition. – Schlenkerla
