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.

Courtesy of bierkoning, thanks Edo!
Hazy orange color, big white cloudy head. A bit papery, light wheaty nose. Fizzy carbonation. Quite malty flavor, some wheaty notes, malty aftertaste. This is tasting like a mix of malty helles and light hefeweizen. Pleasant anyhow.

Kita (861) - Koper, SLOVENIA - APR 1, 2014
Bottle, 0.50l. Hazy golden amber color with large rocky white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of yeast, bread, caramel and banana. Taste starts with moderate sweet grainy and caramel maltiness, follows refreshing yeasty and fruity with spicy mouthfeel and moderate bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Good in general, but still a bit too bland...

Lambister (183) - FINLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Large bottle at Fontti, Turku. Hazy blond color with large creamy head. Sweet malt and pine twig aroma. Light body brings malty, quite sweet flavors similar to nose. Dry balanced finish with hop notes. Interesting.

jookos (1523) - FINLAND - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle. Yellow hazy. A bit of metallic tones, wheats, but all quite weakly. Body nice medium full soft. Not much bitters, but doesn’t demand it either. But surprisingly bland. As a weiss this is bland. Not watery, just void of flavours.

DSG (5022) - 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 (488) - 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.
