Schöfferhofer German Wheat Beer Hefeweizen is brewed in Bavarian tradition using wheat malt. The live yeast gives bottle "conditioning" guaranteeing a refreshing fruity flavor. The yeast sediment also leads to the "cloudy" nature of the beer. Care needs to be taken when pouring. Tilt glass and pour slowly. Before pouring last quarter, roll bottle gently back and forward until sediment is dissolved.

Hanoi (619) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2015
Bottle from Aldi during budget month. Nose is not promising banana, lemon, yeast, slightly stale. Taste lots of wheat, cloves, dough, banana, a little bubble gum, a very unhappy dry stale note matching the nose, wheat and cloves in the finish, with a slight metallic note. Mouthfeel is what you want. It’s a below average wheat beer, apart from the stale metallic note which is actively bad. Not sure if it was a duff bottle or a duff beer, but I think it’s cheap for a reason... I think I will try it again given it’s price.

Oranssinkeltainen, samea ulkonäkö. Muodostaa kaadettaessa tiheän valkean vaahdon. Tuoksussa banaania, purukumia, vehnää ja hiivaa. Maussa etualalla vehnäinen maltaisuus, hedelmäisyys ja hiiva. Jättää suuhun hedelmäisen hiivaisen jälkimaun. Suutuntumassa korostuu voimakas hiilihappoisuus. Keskitäyteläinen runko. Erityisesti kesähelteillä varsin toimiva kokonaisuus.

Avetixz (41) - Wolfsburg, GERMANY - JUN 30, 2015
Aroma of wheat, yeast and slightly earthy. Pours cloudy orange liquid with a smooth, soapy head. Sour and sweet taste, mainly yeast flavour with a citrus note. Light body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Sour, citrussy finish. Overall a nice, smooth German Hefeweizen with a good mouthfeel, but a little too citrussy for my taste.

adasko (1041) - Poznan, POLAND - JUN 30, 2015
Nice classical german hefeweizen. Banana and cloves aroma, similar notes in taste. Both aroma and taste might have been more intensive in my opinion, but still, solid and good beer.
