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.

Sampled from a bottle from Aldi. Orange gold colour with a creamy white head. Aromas of banana and spice. Delicious taste of orange peel, ripe banana and cloves. Pleasantly mild bitter finish. Slightly oily mouthfeel. A really good example of a wheat beer, and extremely good value. Highly recommended.

weordie (412) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2015
Pours cloudy orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma is ripe banana’s, orange peel and wheat. Taste is a little lacking for a hefeweizen, some ripe banana and that Belgian yeast kind of flavour they take on but pretty weak to be honest. Shame because I love hefeweizens.

Bottle. Pours hazy bright orange with large white creamy head, citrus aroma, high carbonation, refreshing citrus peel flavor, slightly bitter taste that ends abruptly, very refreshing hefeweizen!

bonkiedeaap (461) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle from Trinkgut in Kleve. The beer is hazy golden colored and pours a large and stable white head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is overripe bananas (very intense), but also wheat and yeast and a little citrus. The taste is light bodied and mildly bitter from the spices, and in the background a nice sweetness from the bananas and the yeast. Finish is a little sour, refreshing and light bitter. Tasted better ones, but not bad at all.
