Draft. An unclear light golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is fresh wheaty and citrusy with a slight touch of chewing gum. The flavor is sweet wheaty with notes of citrus and again some chewing gum, leading to a very dry and very wheaty finish.

fiulijn (16931) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2008
Cloudy blond color, no head; it has anyway a persistent perlage. Aroma of banana candies and chewing-gum. It has a sweetish flavor, with very light wheat, some banana, no spices, almost no bitterness. If you hate beer, you like this.

yngwie (15764) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle. An unclear, orange-colored beer with a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is citrusy and bananaish, with a pleasant herbal touch. Flowery notes and some peach. It’s a bit sweet on the palate, but at least there’s some bitterness. Herbal notes, banana and citrus in the flavor, doughy pale malts as a backdrop. It’s full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated. More carbonated than most beers, but far from too much. Lasting finish with some orange. Quite nice this one, I especially like the herbal touch. Easy drinkable. 150131

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.
