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.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2006
Pours a clear gold w/ a large white head that quickly disappeared. Sweet, mildly yeasty, grainy aroma. Soft, medium feel. Flavour is somewhat wheaty & fruity (banana) w/ notes of honey & a very quick, dry finish.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 5, 2006
(Canned, BBE 03/2007) Very hazy yellow-orange color with a medium, big-bubbled, fading head. Neutral, maybe slightly sweet, citrus-banana aroma. Moderately acidic, not very sweet flavor of wheat and banana with faint smoky hints. Medium-bodied, slicky and foamy-carbonated, quite refreshing palate. Although well balanced, it’s something between a real Hefeweizen and a non-alcoholic one. A bit empty, IMO. Ha - this was the brewery making Clausthaler NA Hefeweizen - I knew it!:)

Nicko (191) - Ashfield, AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2006
Jeez, the guy below (keeper) is cleary not a fan! 500ml bottle. Cloudy golden colour, with hoppy citrus aromas. Big creamy head. Bitter tasting, with a disapointing thin texture. I could have been a contender.

Torbid yellow, foam white. Little body, than is dissolved nearly endured. Pineapple and a banana in the aroma. Waizen much watery..for the summer!

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Tap at the airport in Dussedlorf, Germany. Poured a hazy golden with a frothy white head. Sweet banana and clove aroma. Taste is lighter than smell, with some banana bread, toffee and lemon. Not bad.

vom Fass. I beleive that some of the yeast was lost in handling. I asked the bartender about how the yeast is kept in suspension in the keg, in contrast to a bottle and he didn’ t have a good answer. White rocky head. Not as cloudy as I would expect. Less banana and clove than other hefe’s. Lots of wheat grainy aroma and flavor. Hints of Ginger. Good carbonation. Nice beer, I’m convinced that some of the yeast was lost by the serving/handling and thus impacted my rating.

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2006
Bottle, 500ml. Sweet aroma. Huge white head and typical hefe-colour, a bit on the golden side. Quite light taste, but extremly complex, long finish.
