Binding-Brauerei AG "Schöfferhofer Dunkles Hefeweizen"
on tap

Notes: Cloudy, tawny brown body beneath a full head of creamy off-white foam that holds exceptionally well and leaves some very nice lacing behind. Caramelish, wheaty malt and soft apple dominate the aroma with only subtle hints of banana and a gentle clove-like spice in the background. Medium bodied. Initially crisp and then smoother across the palate due to its very fine, gently effervescent carbonation. The flavor delivers the caramelish and wheaty malt promised in the aroma with a bit of added roastiness and some soft milk chocolate. It's very well-balanced by a soft bitterness, and it finishes dry with a short note of fruity yeast. It's not as richly malty as many others, and it's weizen yeast character is quite restrained, although that's fairly common. Almost as if a dunkle was blended with a weizen rather than being brewed as a whole. Basic, refreshing, and easy to drink.

Slightly cloudy copper color. Thin head. Not much aroma. Thin taste with slight flavors of spice and banana. What's left is mild bitterness. I wouldn't drink this as a normal brew. There are better brews if you like this type of brew. It's not bad, just not good.

This dunkle pours an opaque russet color with a fairly thick, foamy, slightly tan head. There is a significant smell of banana and of bread, but the overall scent is muted in comparison to the hefeweizen. The overall taste is very banana bread-like and thus is more standard of the style than their somewhat strange hefeweizen, which I think is a good thing. There are also some more subtle non-traditional flavors as well, such as plum and raisin that elevate the overall appeal. There is a sweetness to it that goes nicely with the creamy texture of this beer. The only real similarity between this and their hefeweizen is the dry finish. Overall I much prefer this to their hefe, but that may be partly because in general I prefer this style also. It’s still not the best dunkle I’ve ever had, but I certainly find it pleasant and it is one of the better mass produced German beers that I’ve had. (3.85)

Poured into weizen glass.
Nice appearance, smell is less intriguing, taste is ok for dunkelweizen, some vegetable nuances.
Smooth with moderate carbonation.

Murky orange brown, creamy beige head.
Smell malty and yeasty. Only a very little bit of banana, a little caramel.
Taste wise it's the same thing: a bit of malt but hardly anything else. I'm a little disappointed.
Overall this is a simple wheat.
Bought this on a recent trip to Germany, it was on sale. I wonder if normally this brew has more depth. I'll have to try again in the future.
For now, it's ok, but nothing special
