330 mL bottle. (bb 02/2009). Cloudy yellow beer that seems to have an almost greenish tinge to it. Very active with a nice white head to it. Typical weiss aroma with something very fresh and herbal/floral underneath. There is something a little different about the taste as well, but I can’t quite put my finger (tongue?) on it - unfamiliar "alpine herbs" I suppose. It’s a little sweet (honey?), with mild mint, bananas, semi-sweet citrus, bubble gum, and wheat. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. Not bad - it certainly differentiates itself a bit from some of the other wheat beers out there.

I tried this beer on June 5, 2008 at "Smokeless Joe’s" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a hazy golden orange colour with a thick white head which lasted a few minutes. The aroma was wheat, some cloves, and a little bit of hops. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and highly carbonated. The flavour was sweet wheat with some clove, banana, and coriander.

The bottle says "aromatic taste of alpine herbs" This is true. You can definartely taste a hint of pine and fresh air. The beer is very easy drinking and has no aftertaste. Appearance is great. Yellow white coulour. Not typical for a true weissbeer.

Found Edelweiss in a Prague supermarket. Very pleased with my purchase. Fine, foamy head. Diaphonous, golden color is slightly more transparent than the typical weissbier. This Edelweiss is not your typical weissbier. It is hard for me to put my finger on exactly what separates Edelweiss, except for the color. As others have said, it has a spice flavor and aroma. Lovely, smooth finish. It’s very refreshing.

SaintMatty (5203) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2008
330ml Bottle- Amber/orange in colour with a small head. The aroma is spicy with bananas featuring prominently. The taste is quite mellow at first but the spices are detectable again with the banana being very noticeable and lingering in the finish.

Hazy orange color, decent creamy white head. Wheat, clove, sugar and coriander in the nose. Clove, banana and wheat in the herbal flavor. More or less ordinary witbier with some interesting herbs/spices added.
