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.

Moebbels (356) - FINLAND - DEC 17, 2014
Pours a hazy dark orange body with a nice, fluffy head that settles down to a thin layer. Nose has some spiciness, caramel and a hint of yeast. Taste is slightly tart with a medium dry finish. Carbonation is on the low side for a wheat and palate is just above medium. Decent but somewhat harsh and not too interesting.

notalush (5000) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Hazy copper - fizzy pour that leads to a small, short-loved head that completely dissipates - nose of sweet white frosting, light clove, and some faint pepper - fairly frothy texture - flavor is very sweet up front, but is somewhat tempered by a drier spiciness late, a bit of toasty dark wheat character - finish is mildly peppery - it’s okay.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 15A). Bottle 50 cl - Batch L071108. AROMA: faint fruity aroma reminiscent of clove, vanilla and banana mixed with wheat notes. no hop aromas. APPEARANCE: light Orange color and a bit hazy. thin white head with poor retention. TASTE: dilluted wheat flavour with some fruity and vanilla notes. PALATE: medium-low body with low carbonation. OVERALL: a slight more fruity weiss from Erdinger but nothing more.
