Joe’s Beerhouse draft on William’s 16th! He drank ginger ale, so ok. Smells like beer, looks cloudy with a persistent head. This isn’t a style I go for, but it takes me back to a place in some rural outlying area of New Brunswick in 1985 where an ancient couple dispensed weissbier and conversation.

Pours slightly hazy, translucent, maybe a bit less cloudy than the typical Weissbier, with a thick, tight, three-finger foamy head. Big banana and clove on the nose, typical Weissbier fare. Not much else. On the palate, the banana flavour is fresh rather than mushy, if that makes sense, which I like. It makes it taste a bit brighter. There is a mild and short-lived bit of clove and spice on the finish, then back to the creamy semi-sweetness. The mouthfeel is medium-weight and somewhat creamy, but still refreshing enough. Overall this one is a pretty good Weissbier, sort of middle of the road in terms of its German competitors.

Binding-Brauerei AG “ Schöfferhofer Hefeweizen”
,5L vom fass @ Zum Standestämtchen, Frankfurt, DE

Notes: Typical appearance for a Bavarian-style hefeweizen with a cloudy orange body and tall, fluffy head of white foam that lasts and leaves some impressive lacing behind as it goes. Slightly odd aroma, almost like buttery diacetly. Otherwise wheaty and sweetish with some mild banana and clove. The flavor follows but the buttery note is harder to detect. Moderate to median bitterness leaves it slightly drier than most. Medium to medium-light in body and zesty on the tongue.

500ml bottle. Underpowered and light, verging on thin. Deliberately so, I think, but not a great weizen as a consequence. Banana and cloves are there but barely.

Schofferhofer Hefeweizen is hazy and a golden copper shade of amber. The head is thick, mousse-like and lasting.
Holding up my glass, the first thing I smell is cloves in a way that's gentle, subtle, maybe even enticing. Beneath that, bread dough and the obligatory yeastiness. Fruit esters come through here, giving the aroma an enjoyable brightness. Part of that takes the form of ripe banana, briefly taking form of a pina colata smoothie. The finish is vaguely floral and perfumed.
Schofferhofer's mouthfeel is smooth and rounded in a way that promises a refreshing beverage. As with the nose, initial hit of clove lays the foundation for flavors of freshly baked bread and the accompanying smell of yeast. Banana couples with the flavor of banana smoothie and hints of bubblegum. Finish is briefly sweet before moving into a short, dry finish.
Easily a 7.75 out of 10. Schofferhofer may not be the most intense version of a hefeweizen I've ever had, but nor is it the least either. It's smooth and refreshing and hits almost all the notes this style of beer should hit. The only place where I think it might fall short is it doesn't have the gentle tartness I've found in other examples of the style and I've always thought that is part of what makes a hefeweizen such a great summer beer.

500ml can, best before 23/01/2021, poured into a tulip.
Look: Hazy orangy gold, about 5 cm of foamy white head that hangs around for ages. Has a marhsmallowish quality about the way it looks. Nice lacing on the glass.
Smell: Clove, a little banana, some spice a little floral as well.
Taste: much like the smell, a little more bubblegum and banana forward, and the spice and clove seems to hit the back end a bit more.
Feel: Mouth filling, a litte tingly carbonation, seems to have a dry finish.
Overall: Tasty wheat beer. Seems a solid example of the style.

Review: 0,5l long brown bottle of Schöfferhofer Hefeweizen: 5% vol.

Discount supermarket beer, comes in a brown bottle with a rather cheap looking logo that doesn’t inspire, all in orange and rather shite looking. The brewery call it an eye catching mandarin colour!

On pour we get a very active and excitable beer, very carbonated resulting in a quite big frothy white head, as expected but perhaps not as big as we got! Deep gold in colour, once it all settles down it looks not bad at all. Nice white head and golden appearance.

A lot of lacing!

Getting the usual hefeweizen aromas, no surprise there, the malts, cloves, the citrus and fruits, and a hint off the spicy hops. Smell is fine, but not strong, weak and on the low level.

Standard weizen with moderate to weak smell. Wheat and banana aroma.

On to the taste, initially it is all crisp, very soft and refreshing on the tongue, very smooth for a hefeweizen.

Getting a lot from the bottle, which considering all the carbonation, is great.

Not a huge amount of flavours but its going done nice enough, smooth. Nice taste of barley malts and fruits, and of course the wheat, the cloves and the coriander, with only a slight hint of the hops. Overall, the balance of tastes and flavours is perfect in this beer, making it very easy and very enjoyable to drink.

Perhaps a fan of the old weissbier might not be enamored, but I like it, its manageable for me at least who is not a regular drinker of these wheat beer types.

Typical tastes of a hefeweizen on the low level, bitterness toned down, not complex but all simple tastes.

Taste is very creamy mouthfuls, lovely and soft, I like it, very smooth to sit with and relax, very good, very relaxing, very enjoyable with high drinkability.

This beer is very refreshing. I could easily go though a 6 pack. They did a good job of Binding all the different ingredients. the bavaria wheat,Bavarian yeast,fruity banana, clove spices and mild hops. all complement this beer very well.

In Berlin 2019, this was the best Hefe I've ever tasted. 500ml bottle, and also on draft.
a) How could you not high mark this hazed, amber body that mounts a massive head that rises/puffs the best height, then lashes and laces the glass all the way down?
s) Or the fresh fruit, lemony, banana bread, flower closet, herbal aromas?
t) Or the fruity, lemony, banana bread box, yeast, spice, pepper, flavors all tempered by a chalky, soft earthy dryness?
f) Finished by chalky, aspirin, powdery, dry finish?
o) Perhaps it must be enjoyed fresh - I suspect so - based on the rating divergence.

This was my 'go to' bier in Germany. Many years ago. Now, I can only find the grapefruit version. Does anyone know where I might find this near the panhandle of Texas??????

Es una cerveza con carbonatación media/baja y un cuerpo medio. En su aroma se puede percibir trigo, pan y cítricos. En boca es una cerveza con una pizca de amargor pero acuosa para mi gusto.
