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.

Before getting into beer culture I took a trip to berlin and I found this! It was the best beer as far as I knew it. Now I've tried others/ but would l love to get my hands on this

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.

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.

Schöfferhofer Hefeweizen Naturtrüb has a thick, creamy, off-white head, a mostly clear, bubbly, golden appearance, which clouds up, once the caked gunk at the bottom of the bottle is swished and poured in. Lacing is not so high. Aroma is of mild banana and coriander notes, and the main aroma is just mainline beer smell. Taste is the same thing, with minimal bitterness. Mouthfeel is on the full side, and Schöfferhofer Hefeweizen Naturtrüb finishes easy drinking and refreshing, though not particularly clean.

huge pillowy white head. strong fruity, spicy, orange zest aroma. very nice.
cloudy, glowing gold color. not too much sediment from the bottle.
great refreshing flavor and mouthfeel. mild mouth-puckering bitterness in the finish.
i cant imagine getting tired of this. great looking beer, with the aroma and flavor to back it up.

A very smooth easily drinkable Weisen from the tap. Cheaper than water in Germany.

The beer pours with a very rich thick white head. The liquid is slightly cloudy and dark yellow. Exceptional in all aspects.

The aroma has slight cloves but no banana aroma. I could not detect any hops.

The flavor has bananas and light cloves. With every mouthful, the banana flavor increases and improves. The wheat flavor is present. There is a tartness that is not from hops and the carbonation plays with the tongue.

The mouthfeel is creamy and full of carbonation.

I LOVE hefeweizen and find this one of the finest I have had since coming back from Germany last May. I would recommend this beer to anyone looking for a great wheat beer.

Pours a cloudy lemon yellow with whipped cream head that clings to the edges of the glass with trailers. Wax, clove and deep honey-banana sweetness on the nose. Banana creme pie/banoffi malts, then mild nutmeg, lemongrass, and soft mint hops. Soft, creamy, round, a touch thin.

Not the most complex or challenging, but better for it - creamy body and mild flavor makes this an easy-drinker for a night out or to go with food. Fills a niche for a sessionable weiss.
