look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

hazy gold with a thick creamy head that laces a bit on the way down the glass.
lots of bread, creamy citrus, soft banana, some clove and a little tiny bit of a licorice make up the aroma.
a slightly tart under ripe banana and grainy wheat dominate the taste for the most part, followed by bread, citrus, and then clove towards the back to accompany the bitterness. fairly balanced and not overly sweet, if not a little muted.
fuller medium body, with active carbonation that seems to fizz itself out and flatten quickly. not flat by any means, there is just a bigger contrast than usual in my opinion.
good drinkability, for a solid and pretty tasty middle of the road hefe.

Schofferhofer hefeweizen

Served on tap in Berlin while resting for a shopping stop. Served at a nice cool temperature into a shofferhoffer hefeweizen glass.

Appearance- nice hazy golden orange color with two and a half fingers of fluffy white head, that dissipated surprisingly quickly. Still glorious in its appearance.

Smell- the usual banana and clove aromas, although more subdued than in other hefeweizens.

Taste - nice full blend of banana and clove with hints of orange although more subdued than others in the style.

Mouthfeel - full and creamy, well carbonated but not to an extreme point and clean satisfying finish, that is not dry.

Overall - a fine representative of the style, very enjoyable, although maybe a half echelon below the likes of hacker pschorr and Schneider Weisse and a full tier below weihenstephaner and ayinger's hefes.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Darkish cloudy orange, that reminded me of peach juice. Large off-white head with great retention.

Smell: Banana is evident from a few feet away. Pineapple, peach, citrus, biscuity malt.

Taste: Very fruity - pineapple, peach, banana gives a creamy taste to a subdued bready malt... like drinking beer bread

Feel: Somewhat flat tasting... not crisp like I expect hefes.
