Appearance: Cloudy, orange color with a huge fluffy head that lingers quite a while with chunky lacing.

Aroma: Slightly toasted malt, a little bready, a little grainy, yeasty, some spice and some cooked veggies.

Taste: Grainy up front, faint hints of spice, lots of cooked veggies, a little tart and some mild lemon bitterness on the finish.

The Rest: Didn't notice the best-by date of 1/10/14 on this one when I bought it, so it's a bit past it's prime. That being said, not a great Hefe. If you have given this to me in a glass and told me it was a euro lager, I wouldn't have questioned it..

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.
