The Rauchbier is an interesting style that is unique to the Bavarian city of Bamberg, Germany. Its intense smoky flavour is achieved by smoking barley malt over beech-wood logs and it’s the Brauerei Heller that has mastered the art and produces the world’s best smokebeers.
The Schlenkerla Rauchbier Weizen is a traditional German wheat ale with a smoky aroma that is oftentimes reminiscent of smoked bacon! The wheat ale base gives this beer notes of banana, clove, spicy wheat and malty sweetness whilst the smoked grains give a subtle smoky flavour. Smooth and silky, the distinct qualities of this beer create a pleasant drinking experience.
