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.

Luppolata con generosità, è una hefe molto diffusa nei supermercati eppure dignitosissima pur non aggiungendo nulla di troppo particolare alle caratteristiche base dello stile. Per il prezzo a cui la mettono, tuttavia, è un vero tesoro, soprattutto in questa calura. Bene.

500ml bottle. Unclear, orange body. Lasting white head. Wheaty aroma supported by banana sweetness. More sweet, late banana in flavour offset by hints of green apples and other kinds of tart fruits which ensures it is not too sweet. Wheaty and creamy palate. Average weizen (Trier, 15.09.2007).

Took me a while to put my finger on the flavour of this beer. Thought I was crazy until I read the reviews on this site stating the banana flavours. I enjoyed this beer very much.

10/16/05 Draft. Provence,FR. Hazy golden with white head. Citrus, herbs, banana aroma. Very thin body with some banana fruitiness. Dissapointing.

DSG (6534) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 1, 2007
Draught. Hazy yellow with a huge white head. Wheaty, banana aroma. Flavor is sweetish and fruity with light acidity, and some late bitterness that is unusual for the style. Light to medium body. Nothing interesting, and an OK weizen I guess, but drinking this an hour after drinking a Franziskaner, made this one look quite poor.

500Ml Bottle - Poured into tradition Schofferhofer glass, nice big fluffy head, light cloudy amber appearance. Tropical fruit and fresh cut grass on the nose. Nice smooth foamy mouthfeel. Excellent weizen, especially for the price.

bozoNZ (723) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 27, 2007
500ml bottle. Light plae yellow, reasonable head. Nose had a lipstick / cosmetic type of sweetness to it - sweet with bananas too. A slight thin bodywise some nice spices and enough complexity in the flavours to hold interest.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 26, 2007
On tap at the Marriott Hotel, Leipzig. A decent but unspectacular Hefeweizen. Good citrus and vanilla aroma and a nice cloudy yellow look with a great big white head. The taste is rather over sweet though and the palate is a bit thin, which lets it down somewhat.
