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.

yespr (40837) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2007
50 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a dense white head. Slight orange fruity and mild wheaty aroma. Flavour holds more of the same orange fruitiness and a mild citric flavour with a very subdued wheat note. Slight citric and bitter finish with a mild wheat note lingering into the far finish.

Ungstrup (34660) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2005
[At Jyske Øldage 2004, Kolding] An unclear orange beer with a nice off-white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of wheat. The flavor is flat, boring, and of wheat. Very plain.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 24, 2009
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.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Dark golden with a surprisingly thin head. Less fruity and citrusy fresh than the typical Hefe - this resembles a traditional lager or Kristall Weizen. Not very full-bodied. This has less of most things, in a Christmas beer I would expect more. 270900

cgarvieuk (21884) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 14, 2008
Bottle at home ... every so slight hazy yellow big short lived foam head ... nice wheat nose ... juicy hop with some banana tones ... touch of dry hoppy lagerness ... little peppery

Rasmus40 (17806) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2011
Clear orange with a huge white head. Aroma is sweet, wheaty and fruity. Flavor is rather sweet and light bitter. Finishes sweet. Weaker than other hefe-weizens including Erdingers regular. 100211

Koelschtrinker (17712) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Hefiger, etwas schaler Geruch. Leicht hefiger, dann aber direkt säuerlicher Geschmack, beides wirkt aber überaus harmlos. Im Mittelteil schließt sich ein bitteres Aroma an, meine Güte, bleibt das Bier so lasch? Antwort: Ja. Wobei sich das Bier im Nachgeschmack dann doch noch etwas steigern kann, es ist hier herb und wenigstens ansprechend hefig. Das Motto des Bieres könnte lauten: "Hauptsache ein Winterbier!". Test vom 7.2.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,9,9,9,12,9 - 9,15
