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.

Darker beer than the usual. Banana bread in taste. Light in taste. Good but not much different than the original.

Sdaniel90 (573) - Mexico City, MEXICO - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle, 500ml. Hazy golden with a large, frothy offwhite head. Fizzy/watery aromas of cereal, grass, CO2. Medium bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Very malty mouthfeel with little sweetness or bitterness. Almost nonexistent finish. Very disappointing.

Bottled. Not a whole lot wintry about this. Slightly darker and more cloudy than regular erdinger. A nice weisse but otherwise move along....

Daanminator (335) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2015
Het bier is redelijk troebel haast geel/rood kwa kleur. De schuimkraag is zeer stevig en gigantisch groot. Bier smaakt verrassend zacht. Bouquette is licht fruitig.

On the label: "Best before end 08-2015" so it looks like I’m well before that date.

Appearance: Massive carbonation, huge thick white head under a slightly hazy straw yellow body with a waterfall of bubbles.

Aroma: There is a slightly spicy aroma and a slight metallic scent and a huge CO2 bite on the nose from all the carbonation.

Taste: The flavor of tangy wheat rolls onto the tongue at first, followed by a spicy hop flavor.

Mouthfeel: It is a very easy drinking beer. The body is light and there is a slight bitter presence in the beer.

Overall: It felt pretty average, lacking a lot of yeast character in the aroma and flavor that come from drinking a fresh Hefeweizen. For an import it stands up pretty well and is still enjoyable to drink.
