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.

12 oz bottle. Pours pale orange cloudy with a thick white head. Aroma is slightly tart citric and banana, a touch funky. Flavor starts sweet, bready with some soft citrus notes but quickly fades to a grainy sweet character. Medium body and sharp carbonation. Weird beer.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2016
Hazy golden color with a thick wall of pearly activity. Foamy and rocky white 4 finger island head, lasting around 15-20 minutes, with good legs. Flavors of lemon, sweet straw and wheat, faint clove and banana yeast with some floral spices. Soft pleasant sugary feel with light sour lemon. Slick and smooth full body with crispy carbonation. Light finish, lingering zesty citrus with faint clove and lightly hopped. The flavors are good and well balanced, although a little faint, with a highly refreshing feel that is accessible. Overall pretty good quality craft.

Bière orangée tirant vers le jaune, parfaitement voilée, belle effervescence soutenue, et surmontée d’un large col blanc cassé, très dense, très mousseux, cotonneux même, et qui semble éternel. Arômes de pain frais, pâtisserie et blé, avec sucre brut à tendance mielleuse (voire même léger caramel!), agrumes (orange surtout… voire orange confite!) et abondante levure à weizen. On note quelques effluves d’esters (banane surtout), mais la levure semble surtout épicé (clou de girofle, poivre, eucalyptus, vanille, fumée…), beaucoup de phénols de fermentation, à la limite de l’excessif même (légère odeur de caoutchouc par moment…). Aussi, arômes résolument herbacé et aromatique en trame de fond (gazon, feuille verte, coriandre, camomille…), peut-être un apport du houblon… Nez agréable et intéressant, complexité et intensité assez élevées. En bouche, pétillement assez élevé sur la langue avec une onctuosité très intéressante au palais, breuvage rond, moelleux et velouté à souhait! Au goût, pain frais, pâtisserie, blé, sucre brut, léger miel et esters fruités bien plus présents qu’au nez (banane, poire, mangue…). De façon générale, c’est significativement moins sucré et épicé que le nez laissait présager, mais on retrouve tout de même en bouche une bonne dose de phénols, mais sans excès. Houblon herbacé davantage en fin de bouche, et on a même droit à une finale à l’amertume plutôt légère mais tout de même bien sentie. Excellente intégration des différentes saveurs entre elles, très bon goût, complexité et intensité en bouche bien élevées. Sans rien présenter d’extraordinaire, cette bière reste assurément un exemple typique d’une hefeweizen classique réalisée à la perfection! Excellente bière!!

Bottle from appellation wines dalry road. Pours cloudy gold with a fluffy white head. Nose of summer fruits, cloves, hay, overripe banana. Taste is refreshing, balanced, nice amount of wheat and fruit flavour. Medium bodied on the palate, with a smooth finish. Ideal wheat beer!
