Other Information

Schofferhofer German Wheat Beer Hefeweizen is brewed in Bavarian tradition using wheat malt. The live yeast gives bottle “conditioning” guaranteeing a refreshing fruity flavour. The yeast sediment also leads to the “cloudy” nature of the beer. Care needs to be taken when pouring. Tilt glass and poor slowly. Before pouring last quarter, roll bottle gently back and forward until sediment is dissolved.

  1. Cracking name

    Great sounding name and great tasting beer. Quite a light taste. Medium cloudy colour with fruity notes. Bottle conditioned as the description states

  2. Stujago

    A nice example of a hefeweizen. Very light and balanced. It needed to warm a bit from being chilled to taste the flavours. Some tang to accompany the wheat beer taste.

  3. Gareth Barrett

    This beer is significantly better than anything we can find on UK shelves(!) and a taste of home for my Brandenburg born wife, although as an East German this can sometimes be hard for her to admit!!

  4. Eric Akrill

    This is an excellent wheat beer which pours beautifully and has a very nice, thickish head. Not as citrus as some, but that isn’t always a bad thing. Slightly reddish in colour makes it attractive to look at, but then it’s time to down it. Lovely aftertaste, less sweet than some but not acidic, which I prefer.

  5. Kevin Fuller

    I don’t drink wheat beers that often but this is my go to wheat beer when I do. As it’s very pleasant to drink. I agree with Eric about it being pleasant to look at too. I love the label too and even the name!:). Stick it in a long glass and get it down you. Then come back for another 5 or 6!

  6. Steven Allen

    This is my idea of a classic wheat beer. It has that elder flower and cloves start and a malty undertone. Hoppy and bitter finish but with a beautiful texture throughout. A slight dryness keeps it edgy but it remains very drinkable. Highly recommend.

  7. Paul C

    This is a great wheat beer.
    It keeps a smooth head and texture all the way through,not as sweet but slightly more bitter and hoppy than some.
    Nicely balanced, its flavours and aftertaste benefit from being kept in a cool place rather than a fridge.
    Definitely recommend.

  8. Kristin

    Nice wheat beer with a pleasant bitter/dry finish, so a bit hoppier than other beers of this type


    Good wheat beer. Smooth clean crisp fruity excellent beer do recommend this

  10. Batuhan Yazar

    Although it is from Frankfurt, I love this more than the Bavarian Weissbier brands! Definitely placing it over oh so common Fraziskaner, Paulaner or Erdinger! It has a softer and smoother taste and no bitterness at all!

  11. Richard Martin

    Lighter than you might expect, both in colour and taste. No bitterness in aftertaste, but also slightly lacking in the sweetness that you might expect. Quite fizzy and a large head, but easy drinking once that settles slightly

  12. Paul Boniface

    A good wheat beer, with a nice fruit flavour. Very smooth.

  13. Kris

    One of the finest weissbiers I have tasted in a while – compares favourably to the Schneiderweisse stock

  14. John J

    Very good wheat beer, drank absolute gallons of this in Frankfurt recently and on previous trips. Goes great with Bratwurst. excellent head, lots of body, nice fizz, very pleasant to sup in all weather outside. nice session wheat beer, definitely give this one a go!

  15. Matthew W

    Pours a murky amber with moderate sized fluffy white head, lovely retention and lacing.
    Aroma of banana, yeast, clove, sweet almost doughy malts
    Taste of banana, clove, herbs, sweet malts with a caramel note.
    Light to medium bodied, fine carbonation.
    A little simple but tasty and sessionable.

  16. Gavin Harrison

    A good session beer, but slightly anonymous. Very little aroma, good cloudiness and a decent head. Typical flavours of a wheat beer (bananas, toast, sweetness etc) but all a little bit restrained. As an introduction to the seductive qualities of a Weizen, this would be good but, like a bike with stabilisers you’ll soon want to move on to something a bit more grown-up.

  17. WF

    Good but not outstanding, it does not have the same degree if body as most German wheaty ones.

  18. Mark Woodward

    A reliable wheat beer always consistantly good with decent wheat beer attributes – a good session beer.
