Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 48: Schöfferhofer Kristallweizen

Another wheat beer, this one from Frankfurt.

Schöfferhofer Kristallweizen

Pours a clear golden colour, with a large head that fades slowly. A lot of fine bubbles rising to the surface.

First sip: Quite sweet malt up front followed by a fruitiness, and a mild hops lingering on the back of the tongue. Quite a lot of carbonation tingle with a sort of dry finish. Not a lot of other flavours going on here.

This wheat beer is okay, but nowhere as good as the last few. It's nice but is dominated by the sweet malts, which overwhelm the other flavours. As the glass warms the flavours grow stronger and combine better into a beery whole, but still doesn't get as good as the previous wheat beers. Yummy, but not as yummy.
