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.

olio (6685) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 17, 2015
50 cl bottle.
Pours cloudy golden color with a huge white head. Orange and apricot on the nose, mild banana notes, some wheat and herbs. Orange on the flavor, mild wheat and yeast and that’s pretty much it. Very mild and simple, there’s plenty of better brews of this style.

From a bottle. Pours mildly cloudy amber with a thick creamy head, super smooth, a great example of the style.

martinrumsam (556) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2015
Bottle. Classic hazy orange with full fluffy lasting white head. Aroma is yeasty with banana and a hint of mace Taste is moderate sweet with a little lemony citrus tang at the end. Quite watery. Medium carbonation. Just about average for the style

Istur (6) - ITALY - JAN 11, 2015 does not count
Classica weizen, corpo un pò più leggero. Si sente meno frumento di altre birre della categoria. Un retrogusto più amaro lascia un sapore diverso (positivo). Schiuma abbastanza persistente, colore quasi arancio e ovviamente torbida.

Erzengel (3973) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 7, 2015
Schönes, hefig-frisches Hefeweizen. Mild-weich, schön fruchtig, hefig-mild, rund und nett.

adamnowek (331) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2015
Cloudy orange-ish hefeweizen. Aroma and taste are more banana, a little bit of wheat. Looks quite nice but the taste is pretty mild and average.

JDBaker11058 (1388) - Maryland, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Appearance: cloudy orange, short creamy white head, decent lacing rings. Aroma: banana, light bubblegum, citrus, and clove. Taste: banana, with very little citrus, a bit of yeast, and an undertone of malted wheat. Finish: smooth, with just a little tingle, and a bit of wheat. Notes: Decent enough hefeweizen, especially when I wasn’t expecting much. Draught at ’Germany’ in Epcot at Dinsey in Orlando, Florida.
