Appearance- Cloudy amber with one finger frothy head that sits on top all the way down. Well carbonated with lots of bubbles. Leaves good lacing.

Smell- Banana bread, yeasty smell, touch of lemon.

Taste- Quite dry. Nice contrast of bitter flavours, wheat and yeast, touch of toffee. The flavours stay on the palate for a while. Easy to drink, refreshing, smooth wheat beer.

Mouthfeel- Starts off creamy but thins out a bit half way down the glass , however, a refreshing beer.

Overall- A tasty well made wheat beer that is very refreshing, would definitely buy again, this beer would go down well chilled on a hot summers day.

Another treat procured in Winnipeg...

A - Pours a hazy golden colour, thumb of egg white head with solid retention and sporadic lacing.

S - Scent dominated by bready wheat, hints of clove and peppery spice.

T - Nice bready malts with a citrus bitterness, hints of clove and bananas. The bitterness lingers alongside a dose of grassy wheat.

M - Medium bodied, extremely smooth and a touch of dryness on the finish.

O - Incredibly drinkable, solid flavour profile and a tasty example of the style. This is a great go-to hefe, and certainly worth a try if you're a fan of the style.

from notes
A - Completely swampy yellow brown, thumb of white head retained at a thin covering with consistent lacing

S - Strong eastery aromas of sour fruit, herbs and spices, light grainy

T - Starts with some graininess, yeasy flavours much more subdued, somewhat mineral flavour, a little dissapointing given the aromatic promise

M - Lightish body, slightly flat, light bready finish

O - A decent start led to mediocrity, a little on the bland side for a german hefe

The beer is clouded amber, has an off-white head that leaves little lacing, but some curtains.

The smell is fruity, spicy and yeasty, banana, oranges, cardamom, clove.

Starting with sweet wheat bread, banana, oranges, cardamom and clove spiciness.

Medium high carbonation, a fresh feeling, almost coarse and a slightly dry finish.

A fresh and refreshing crisp Weizen (less citric than on tap last year).

Finally I get to review Schofferhofer (or "The Hoff" as I like to call it). Man (or woman) I have been drinking this for many years, ever since I was first introduced to wheat beers this has been one I have come back to again and again... mainly for the price of course. Well let's get to it "Hoff".

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a 500ml Stein the way the German god(s) intended.

A: Nice cloudy orange body with a 1cm pale white head.

S: Banana, cloves and... dried apricot!?! There is a distinct apricot aroma with this Hefe, which makes me question whether or not all Hefe's have the same distinct apricot aroma and I've just missed it or it's just this one... only one way to find out [goes out and buys every Hefeweizen on the market].

T: Wheat beer territory - creamy banana, cloves, some caramel malts and a slight musty yeast (not as pronounced in The Hoff though). It's a little lacking in flavour, I'm used to more creamy/banana cloveyness ("It is too a word!"), and this brew is lacking a teensy tiny bit.

M: Mmmmm... like a cold cream bath... with bubbles.

D: Drinks OK. Lacking in flavour compared to its brethren however it is also cheaper than competition, and that is the beersumer choice you have to weigh up when you buy this beer (price versus flavour). Still I would prefer and pay for the Weihenstephaner over this.

Food match: Barvarian food was made for Hefeweizen (or the other way around). Every time I taste a wheat beer I'm reminded of the Hofbrau Haus and it's banquetesque meals. In any case German food overall is the best match.
