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.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle:   Dirty orangish straw, frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Nose is wheaty, with faint spices of clove.   Not as pronounced as other German Hefeweizens.   Similar on the tongue.   Not much banana or bubble gum flavors.   Just a smidgen of clove.   Moderate to fully body and mouthfeel.   Wheaty finish, a touch musty, with a bit of clove.   Decent beer, but not as flavoful as others.   Really likes the spiciness of most German examples.

Erdinger bid for a Christmas beer is this Schneeweisse, which is a typical hefeweizen being only a little more spicy than usual. Perhaps due to the use of some extra wheat malt? I do not know, because I have no great knowledge of brewing, but Christmas beer offers usually at little extra of something. Personal I think it’s pretty good, just because banana sweetness is not as pervasive as in other hefeweizen.

Percy0103 (301) - MEXICO - AUG 6, 2015
Bottle, 500ml. A golden beer with a big frothy head and a lot of gas. Aroma is of canned corn, wheat and maybe even soap. Taste is bitter, but very mild. Almost no character. Very watery with some carbonation and almost no astringency.

Pours rusty orange with ridiculous head. Tastes a whole lot like Icehouse or any other beer served at a low-end frat party. Really disappointing.

Vaahtoyllätys, lieneekö pullo huonosti säilytetty. Samea ja väriltään kauniin kullankeltainen. Mieto tuoksu ja maku, erittäin kevyt lager. (20.12.2014)

blackisle (1298) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2015
Bottle 50cl. Hazy to cloudy pale amber color, a lot of tiny bubbles, large frothy off-white head, recedes slowly, good lacing; yeasty and fruity aroma, peach, apricot, orange peel, wheat; taste medium sweet and light sour, fruity, bit wheat; light body, watery texture, average carbonation, aftertaste begins mild sweet and sour, light bitterness joins towards the finish, spicy notes; a rather thin Hefeweisse, that lacks real yeastiness in taste and aftertaste.

Keukeman (45) - BEST, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2015
.5l bottle, pours a hazy golden-orange beer. Little offwhite head, diminishes slightly fast.Can spot a sweet but bitter taste, lots of spices, much more taste than regular erdinger.. like it!

Pours a hazy dark yellow. Aromas are not super. Some apricot, citrus. Malty and some citrus bitterness flavours. Sub par hefe.

MMR (601) - NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2015
Probably the best Hefeweizen of the Erdinger brewery (and they are pretty good at Hefeweizen). A strong aroma of fine yeast. Very satisfying beer with a great texture.
