Editor's note: originally only a very limited release (at 5.5% ABV) in 2001 for the 100 best Danish restaurants. Re-released as a standard release in the Semper Ardens series 2008.

Weisse, a wheat beer with a touch of apple juice, is the fourth offering in the Semper Ardens range of hand-brewed beers from Carlsberg. The light-golden 5.5% abv wheat beer follows the Semper Ardens theme of offering traditional beers brewed to the highest standards, but with a contemporary twist.
