Your Daily Pint for Wednesday, May 21, 2014: HELLER-BRAU TRUM AECHT SCHLENKERLA RAUCHBIER WEIZEN
What it is: A smoked wheat beer from Bamberg, Germany
What it tastes like: The hallmark smoke flavors of this beer are what steer the swallow, but they still leave room for the wheat to speak up. Wheat tartness and clove have their say in the beginning, while the smoke breezes through the mouth, eventually turning a little dark, even charred, toward the finish. It’s still a very drinkable beer, suitable for any dish you plan on throwing on the grill this weekend.
