This beer is made in the state of Hesse, and it makes a great wheat beer. It is the national group of Binding in Frankfurt. The orignial brewery site was the home of Peter Schoffer, a pioneering printer from the same deal as Gutenberg. This is very dry with a plummy, damsonlike fruitiness and a suggestion of grapefruit zest in the finish. It is widely available in Germany and can be drunk at any time of the day (trust me). It is one of my absolute favorite beers in the world.

Appearance: Cloudy apricot, beautiful balanced head which lasts for a nice while it thickens, leaving a nice display of lacing. It looks like what a Hefe Weizen should look like.

Smell: smells strongly of banana and earthen spices. Great Smell

Taste/ Mouthfeel: Cloves and earthen spices hit the palate and release a range of tarty sweetness on the edge which then changes into the banana we witnessed earlier in the smell. Meanwhile the earthen spices and wheat course dryness attacks the centre of the palate asking for another sip. The aftertaste is that of apple skin with a bitterness of the edge of the palate. The whole mix has just the right amount of carbonisation to make it refreshing yet goes down so easy that drinking this is a breeze

Drinkability/Overall: A great Hefe Weizen. Easy drinking. This one has all the right moves. A great Hefe Weizen to introduce to a beer drinker unfamiliar of the style.

Poured a huge, creamy, vanilla head that sat a half inch above the top of the glass until it faded slowly leaving thick strands of lace. Hazy golden colored beer. It smells amazing. There is a dose of soft yeasty banana, a pinch of clove, and underneath it all are citrus and floral notes. Soft, moderately full bodied beer holds a good amount of carbonation that keeps it fluffy on the tongue. Cotton candied citrus flavors are supported by yeasty banana flavors. Citrus flavor is a hair sour like a Witbier at first, but then switches to slightly bitter towards the finish. Flavor could be a bit fuller, but otherwise this is a really tasty Hefe Weizen.

Gorgeous thick, rich sturdy head stis atop an opaque orange gold body. Some light carbonation. A very good-looking beer.

Delicious fruit-sweet nose. Touches of orange, lemonade laced with hops and sweet malt.

A fair amount of bitterness on the palate, a little more than I've come to expect from a wheat beer. Long finish that starts with a lip-smacking bitter hops freshness (almost reminiscent of an IPA) and mellows to a coppery sweetness at the back of the mouth. There's a dusty dryness at the very, very end which just wonderfully caps off this beer.

This is a very, very pleasant brew. I've tried a few of these now, and every time I find something new to appreciate. Wonderful job

If you're in Frankfurt am Main and looking for a pleasant, refreshing beer, you need look no further than Schöfferhofer. I'm a fan of hefeweizens. I have probably tried at least thirty five different examples of the style, and I'd say that this is solidly in the top ten. It pours like the typical hefe, and it has a very balanced, pleasing taste. Definately worth a try, especially if you're new to hefeweizens. Unfortuantely, I've never seen this outside of Germany.

Cloudy golden colour, good head, lovely aroma of citrus and spices, refreshing light and clean citrussy flavour. Pleasant aftertaste. A good hefe, recommended for everyone who loves this style.

The orange labeled Hefeweizen has a yellowish orange cloudy color. The nice and creamy off-white head has pretty good staying power with a little cream at the bottom of the glass and produces a maze of lace from the rim to the base. The back label shows to pour most and then swirl the bottle to pull the sludge off of the bottom and then finish your pour. I tried it without the swirl and with the yeast mix and did not notice much of a difference. A soft fragrance of spice and citrus builds the anticipation for the fruit/spice flavor that goes down smooth with a touch of bitterness towards the end. I found this German Bier to be very drinkable and tasty. One with which I will build a lasting relationship.
