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.

Marstonlad (520) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 1, 2015
Pours hazy amber with a big, frothy white head. The aroma contains pale, wheaty maltiness and cereal with some fruity notes and a touch of yeastiness. Taste is light sweet, displaying maltiness and some fruitiness – citrus, cloves and a hint of banana come forth in the taste, despite them being mostly absent from the aroma. The palate is very round and smooth, average in carbonation and nearly medium-bodied – quite fresh to drink but with a solid body also. Altogether a typical quality German wheat beer. Does not perhaps have quite the same varied fruity and spicy profile as the classics but a good one still.

mighty_meadow (300) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - MAR 29, 2015
£1.25 for a 500ml bottle in Aldi. All the usual components of a Hefeweizen but slightly thin and water. For the price this is a wee gem though and maybe a good place to start with this style.

500ml bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with a foamy white head. Banana aroma, matched in the taste which also has a hint of orange and spice. Nice

500ml bottle from Aldi - Pours a hazy amber colour with nice white head. Aroma is wheat, banana and cloves. Taste is banana, wheat, some spices. Mouthfeel lets this down, a bit watery, otherwise not bad for £1.25.

500ml draught. Rather average hefeweizen. Hazy golden with dense white head. Aroma mainly of bananas, yeast and cloves. Descrete taste of banana, yeast and a slight spicyness.

Uma cerveja de trigo tradicional, equilibrada e saborosa. Um retrogosto leve, porém marcante
