COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

DSG (5750) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy deep golden-orange with a big frothy white head. Aroma has mild banana esters, bread, some graininess and a light spicy touch. Sweetish flavor, wheaty, bready, moderately fruity, with some graininess and a mild tart touch. Finishes slightly drier. Medium-bodied. A bit better than regular Erdinger, but not a good Weissbier. Too grainy and bready and not fruity enough. Still OK and pretty easy-drinking.

Aaron68 (572) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2014
500 ml bottle @ home.March 03, 2014 Beer from "Vinmonopolet Oslo City", November 2013. Dark golden to orange and cloudy with a white/beige head and medium to full carbonation. Aroma is yeast,malt,a bit fruity,banana and floral. A bit sweet and malty, but also weak and thin. A slightly bittersweet finish. Dead boring beer in my opinion.

Erzengel (2565) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2014
The beer starts smooth, slightly malty and a bit more sweet than the normal Erdinger Weißbier. The mainpart is slightly caramelly and a bit sweeter and "darker" than the normal one. The aftertaste is smooth, caramel, clove. Slightly bitter.
Nice, but nothing that special. I like the yeasty-bitter aftertaste. --> 10/12/10/11

Pours a golden color. Has a slight aroma of wheat and fruit. Average taste with only a hint of spices. Great looking bottle.

obguthr (3782) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Slightly skunked aroma of noble hops, grass, and feet. Hazy amber, huge sticky head. Malty, barley and wheat., bready and grassy, somewhat stale. No fruity esters or phenols. Lagerish. Little carbonation remains suspended, post-pour. I’m not sure what this is supposed to be, but Erdinger makes better beer than this.

Draft. Golden with small white head. Aroma of citrus, fruit (grape), and wheat. Light body, citrus, fruit, and wheat notes with some sweetness.

Draft pours hazy gold with foamy white head. Aroma of fruit (grape), wheat, yeasty. Taste is wheat, slight hop bitterness, very clean finish. Light -mid body. Not sure what makes this a winter beer other than its served during the winter time.
