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.

I reckon this beer is better than what the overall score suggest. Had it plenty of times before but had a few tonight on a warm Australian evening, it went down a treat. A lovely well balanced hefeweizen with hints of banana. Very nice and a great session beer. Will drink again.

mathieuc (2959) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2016
New listing at the SAQ. Pours a surprisingly clear golden with a medium white head that leaves good lacing. Going back to the can I see that I need to roll the can before serving, hmmm. I comply and now I get a pretty hazy golden with a medium-high white head that leaves nice lacing. Cool. Nose is of clove for the most part with some wet grass. Taste is slightly acidic and a bit sweet, offers restrained cloves and banana. Wheat proteins. Body is light to medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is a little sticky. Overall a fair hefeweizen but certainly not a blockbuster. Not the explosive banana kind and more cloves-oriented, a nice change of pace!

DavidAust (167) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2016
500ml bottle into a weizen glass. Mild aroma mostly suppressed by the fluffy head. More aroma from the bottle - typical banana yeast. Slightly cloudy amber with a large head which fell away quickly. Taste is mostly hidden by carbonation but it is sweetish with a tanginess / hint of late mild bitterness at the end. Mouthfeel is OK and palate is medium length. Overall nice but not great.

Schlumpfhunter (110) - Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 15, 2016
Farbe: trübes Bernstein, klassisch top. Schaum: sämig und beständig. Nase: Bananenweizen, deutlich kellersäuerlich, bisserl zitronig. Geschmack: recht sauer, nicht so rund wie andere Weizen. Wieder kellerig. Abgang kommt dann der Weizengeschmack mit etwas Hefebreite, aber die Säure dominiert auch hier bis in den Nachgeschmack. Hm schade. Aber trotzdem ein gutes Weizen.

YigSvartka (269) - Manitoba, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
Nearly opaque cloudy yellow orange hue with a mid sized white head. Excellent retention. Mild, but appeasing aroma containing notes of vanilla, orange, bubblegum, wheat, and sugar. Brimful body and rather bubbly. Although the texture is quite nice, the flavour is slightly lacking in intensity. Banana, citrus, wheat, and vanilla are present, but are unfortunately passive. Certainly not deplorable, but also not the pinnacle of hefes.

Middelmatige Hefeweizen, waar de meeste elementen wel aanwezig zijn, maar wat afgevlakt en niet bruisend. Wel lekker op terras, genietend van een eerste lentezonnetje waar je je wat aan kan opwarmen.

Âmbar para laranja, turva e com espuma generosa de longa duração e que mancha bem o copo. Aromas intensos de banana e cravo. Cerveja nutritiva, com dulçor marcante e amargor médio que se situa bem acima da média das demais da categoria. Um cerveja muito boa e destaque na categoria.

Banany, cytrusy. Klasyka, do której pozostał sentyment. Dobre na start do piwnego świata.

Can. A citrusy beer with flavours of pineapple, citrus, banana. Creamy and, oh so smooth.
