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.

Very clear and simple. A mild, sweet taste. Fresh and light. A little boring. Im getting a warm "summer feeling" from this winter beer. This is not what I’m looking for after a day out in the snow.

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

blackisle (1150) - 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 (22) - 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 (517) - 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.

jcos (1670) - Maryland, USA - APR 17, 2015
Location/Date:Bottle on 3/2/2015.

Appearance: Pours an orange cloud.
Aroma: Aroma of banana and wheat.
Taste: Similar to the nose- wheat and banana.
Palate:Medium body, light fizz.

Summary: I always like trying new german hefe’s. Nice brew.

RW80 (1237) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2015
0,5 l Appearance: orange-yellow body, with a small white head that doesn’t last long. Aroma: very faint malts, wheat and banana. Taste A watery wheat and banana and a hint of clove and citrus in the finish. thin-medium body, average carbonation A uninterresting thin Weizen is not what you expect for a Christmas/ Winter beer.

ronaldtheriot (1503) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Unfortunately, my bottle was many months past the "best by" date, so that needs to be considered. Erdinger Schneeweisse has a medium soapy, crackly, white head, a hazy, vigorously bubbly, hazy, orange appearance, which clouds up, once the caked bottom sediment is loosened and poured in. No lacing left behind. The aroma is of pungent, sweet & sour grain and bread crust. Taste is similar with a very low hop component. Mouthfeel is medium and soft, and Erdinger Schneeweisse finishes semi-dry and highly drinkable. Overall, this would be in the quality and flavor range of a Shock Top or Blue Moon. RJT

Beachmaster (226) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle into a pint glass. Pours a orange-yellow color, with a small white head that quickly fades. Nose is a very faint aroma of malt. Taste is mostly lacking, with a watery wheat flavor and just the slightest hint of clove on the finish. Pretty bland. An undistinguished, mainly flavorless novelty. Not worth the money-will not buy again.
