With a slightly darker color and slightly higher alcohol content than the classic ERDINGER Weissbier 'with fine yeast', the 'winter brew' offers a really pleasant change at the coldest time of the year, a time when we like to treat ourselves to something special. Available between November and February.

bottle, pours cloudy yellow/gold with a tall white head. Aroma has notes of wheat and apple peel. Flavor is wheat and sweet malt, some honey, and some spice and a light alcohol burn in the finish. Nice and interesting.

Bottled (from beerangel.de in January). Slightly hazy golden colour with mediumsized foamy/fluffy white head. Vanishes quite fast leaving a small thick creamy head. Nice lace. Aroma is wheat, some slight citrusfruits and banana and some yeastyness. Flavour is quite much the same, but also has some mild herbal notes to it.

jgb9348 (4851) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 7, 2009
Clear golden coloured body with a soapy and very fast dying, active tan head. Tonnes of medium bubbles rise from the bottom and sides of the glass, like a soda. Aroma of metal, pit fruits, fresh hops, malt and more metal and blood. Medium-bodied; Strong astringent malt and a light floral taste up front fading to a light citrus, some wheat and a touch of metal in the palate. Aftertaste shows some light characteristics, but overly mild. Overall, a good beer to try - not amazing by any stretch, but worth drinking - however, I’d rather have this in the summer! I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from McHughes Off-License in Dublin (Howth), Ireland on 20-February-2009, sampled from home on the west side of the pond in Washington [DC] on 06-April-2009.

Un sacré bonne erdinger. Elle reste toujours un peu fade. Les aromes, les épices en ressortent un peu plus.

SeanMacGC (332) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 12, 2009
Bottle, 50cl. Pours hazy orange, with slight white head, faint lacing. Nothing too much on the nose, and nothing great on the palate either, rather hollow, of feeble citrus. Crisp mouthfeel, but not great.

Unclear orange body and white head. Light malty aroma of banana and citrus. Sweet Flavour. It’s an average hefeweizen.

Clear golden with a huge off white head. Sweet malty aroma waith caramel notes. Sweet flavour with yeasty, caramel and malty notses. Now thats a good weiss if you ask me.

Shared this with oldrtybastrd. This pours an orange color but darker and richer. There is some fruit smells but rather bland taste.

Hazy orange colour. Thin fading head. Has sweet zesty orange notes. Clean and refreshing but has less flavour than a regular weissbier.
