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.

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high white head that died down leaving a short head on the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass. The head has good retention properties. S: Light aromas of yeast are present in the nose, although not much in the way of banana fruits are perceptible. T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that there is less earthiness in the yeast and a little more bananas and lots of wheat. No cloves are perceptible. M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. O: This beer is easy to drink and you get more of the wheat compared to the bananas. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

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.

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.

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 (209) - 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.

Bottle; pours a cloudy orangish gold with an off white head; has a slightly sweet aroma of banana, yeast, wheat, and a little bit of spice; taste is banana, wheat, and a hint of citrus; finish is dry with a hint of spice; okay but does not seem all that wintery

Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Liquor for $1. This is six months old but I’ve never seen it before, so I thought I would give it a chance. Dark golden orange appearance with some mild haze (before pouring the yeast) with a lasting off white head. Aroma has some herbal spice, a little nutmeg, light caramel, vanilla, and light clove. A little twangy, light tartness. There’s a metallic character. The flavor has deteriorated more than the aroma. It’s bready and stale. Fresh, I think this would be kind of enjoyable. Maybe a slightly spicier version of their standard weissbier and a fair amount less fruit. Pretty decent brew that I need to try fresher but I can tell this is nothing too flashy even in this state.

On tap at Beer Deluxe. Pours hazy orange with medium head. Fizzy and lively carbonization, very refreshing for a wheat beer. Besides that pretty standard though.
