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!

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.

Pale golden color, creamy head, cloudy texture but light body. Strong spicey aroma. Very refreshing unique taste with full of coriander, banana, citruses. Great.

Papillon (400) - Ottawa, 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!

Pours a murky golden, almost orange colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma: fresh and refreshing hops, wheat, straw, herbal notes. Taste: delicate floral notes over a mild (no bitterness here at all) hop base with hints of jasmine, honey, cloves, and citrus. Delicious and smooth, I will definitely drink more of this.
