I love so much this wonderful beer! Especailly, the alpine herbs of Edelweiss makes me feel in the Alps mountains. The sweet finish is quite special. In short, Edelweiss snowfresh is always better than any other choice.

330 ml bottle, served in a glass. The traditional look of a white beer, with a lasting, white foamy head. Starts off with a orange-y taste, then moves to a sweet honey flavor, and then finishes off with a hint of coriander. A lovely beer all around, and one your never going to forget!

Smelling this beer is like walking in a fruit garden, where you find bananas, peaches, lemon, oranges, apples, you name it. Tastes mostly of peaches and bananas but you have the herbs there as well. A very, very nice beer. A mix of Beligian ale and a weissbier. First class!

Wow! Pleasently surprised with this one. A flowery smelling beer that pours a slighty cloundy golden color annd short head. Distinct floral and herb palate without the soapiness. A nice smooth finish that suprisingly left no bitter aftertaste. Definitely worth the 3.50/bottle I paid for it.

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.

Papillon (366) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2009
330 mL Bottle. pale cloudy straw body with a frothy white head. Aroma very floral with notes of pine and spruce, a hint of cloves, and a subtlest soupçon of camphor. Wheat and banana dominate in the taste, apricot and cloves come through in the aftertaste, cantaloupe and allspice in the creamy finish. Gutes Bier!
