COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

A brew that I drink often when back in Germany, and wanting a nice hefe, always fresh in the Saarland, as Frankfurt is near enough. More spice than many Hefeweizen, some yeastiness to it, a great brew, that I enjoy often, the Dunkel is good too!

tap in berlin... aroma was very weak and appearance resembled something of a cross between vomit and piss... flavor was slightly better with the typical hefe coming through, but i cannot quite account for the comparatively high ranking this beer received

Definitely I needed some like this, very spicy and very refreshing. It is a shame they don’t imprt more like this.

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 13, 2007
Bottle from Saarlander and shared with Duane. Thanks Aaron. Hazy yellow pour with a good-sized white head. Banana, bubblegum, yeast and lots of clovey spiciness in the nose. Flavor is much the same. Spicier and maltier than an average hefe, this one stands out. Very well done.

500ml bottle from Saarlander, thanks Aaron. shared with Illini08. hazy golden yellow with a spicy, banana, clove and yeast aroma. flavor was more of the same. a very enjoyable German hefe, under-rated IMO.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2007
Nice fruity beer with lots of bananas in aroma and flavour. Slightly one-dimensional, however, and not one of my favourite German Hefeweizen.

A clowdy yellow colour, with a sour wheat nose and a crisp sharp wheat fruityness.

BelgianBeerGal (3240) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2007
UPDATED: APR 10, 2011 50cL bottle. Pours a cloudy orange color with a big head that lasts fairly well. This is a good summer beer with a dry finish. Fairly normal German offering, nothing special really. But man it was tasty sitting in the sun in Mainz!

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2007
Orange, slighty hazy with a great head. Some banana, uncomplicatedly malty, a little dry on the finish. A pretty standard hefe really.

Dezzilu (226) - Whitmore Lake, Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2007
A simply perfect looking summer beer. Add a thin slice of lemon and tip it back: murky gold color with a lot going on in the glass. The taste is a little thin, but wickedly refreshing. The aftertaste is nice and clean, as was expected with this style of beer. An truly wonderful wheat beer, very German. Cheers.
