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.

Dervock (532) - Emu plains, - JUN 7, 2012
Bottle - hazy pale orange with dense white head. Cloves and spice with a slight soapy aroma. Medium body with a hint of banana and a light dry finish. Middle of the road easy to drink hefe.

droseke (2) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 26, 2015 does not count
Tasted from a 0.5L bottle in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Pours cloudy at first and after swishing out the sediment it becomes downright opaque. Colour is dark yellow edging towards brown in dim light. Absolutely love the dense look of this beer. Smells strongly of yeast, and the taste does not surprise after experiencing the fragrance. It is essence of wheat, untainted other than the massive yeast that compliments it. Conversely, it lacks the subtleties that are found in exceptional beers and the taste of water is certainly present, giving it a simple feel. As I grew up around the famous wheat fields of western Canada, it is a cultural experience to feel the wheat so purely captured by our distant neighbours in Germany.

Fľaša 0,5 l, pivo je kalné s vysokou hustou penou, krúžkuje na pohári. Krásna ovocná vôňa, chuť ľahká s ovocnými tónmi.

Garrold (2252) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2015
Bottle. Aldi. Lovely, cloudy orange colour. Thin, dense, lasting, white head. Decent Hefe aroma, albeit a little light on the wheat. Drinks fresh, and light. Maybe a bit on the thin side. Sweet, first, on the finish, with a dry close.

wittz (35) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 13, 2015
Szolid, megbízható búzasör, a maga kategóriájában olcsó. Egyen-narancssárga, opálos. Tartós hab. Könnyed, nem túlzottan vizes, kellemesen savanyú. Lehet hogy a legolcsóbb kifogástalan, egyszerű búzasör.

flying_pig (1072) - SCOTLAND - APR 13, 2015
500ml bottle from Bar Bloc+ in Glasgow (£4.25):
This one again proved itself to be quite an enjoyable wheat beer that was very easy to drink and flavoursome despite the fact that the nose could perhaps have been a little stronger. Fruity, lively and fresh with enough going on to keep you interested without it being truly spectacular but still being a hefeweizen well worth trying.

Marstonlad (525) - 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
