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.

(500 ml bottle) pours a murky light-orange beer, with vigorous medium carbonation, and a rocky white head. Unfortunately, I feel this bottle may be compromised. InitialIy, a strong aroma of Bavarian yeast. After that, things go downhill fast. There’s a strong note of slightly-burnt popcorn, caramel, honeycomb, malt powder, bread dough, banana skins, clove, a twist of lemon, metallic odours, and a strong, lasting bitterness. Light-bodied and fizzy, with a hodgepodge of aromas, this beer is truly a mess. It’s just far too bitter for a proper German wheat beer. I’m sure it was once a great example of the style, before Oetker Group took over. Wouldn’t have this again - there’s better to be had. Hopefully I can put this down to a faulty seal round the bottle cap.

Hazy yellow color, medium to large white head. Aroma banana, wheat. Taste banana, lemon peel, spices. More spices in aftertaste. I prefer more sour citrus notes, but this is tipical very good hefeweizen.

Bottle. Hazy orange colour, large, slowly diminishing white head. Aroma: wheat, banana, notes of spices and citrus. Taste is light sweet and bitter, wheat, banana, citrus, clove. Light+ body, thin texture, lively carbonation. Refreshing. Decent example of the style.

Very soft and fluffy stable foam. Looking at least tasty: opaque canary colour. Smelling grains, clove, banana. Very smooth texture, yeasty taste, low carbonation, sour finish, very drinkable and refreshing)
