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.

Bamaboy1975 (242) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 31, 2013
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

Bottled. Not a whole lot wintry about this. Slightly darker and more cloudy than regular erdinger. A nice weisse but otherwise move along....

Daanminator (180) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2015
Het bier is redelijk troebel haast geel/rood kwa kleur. De schuimkraag is zeer stevig en gigantisch groot. Bier smaakt verrassend zacht. Bouquette is licht fruitig.

teromous (91) - - JAN 12, 2015
On the label: "Best before end 08-2015" so it looks like I’m well before that date.

Appearance: Massive carbonation, huge thick white head under a slightly hazy straw yellow body with a waterfall of bubbles.

Aroma: There is a slightly spicy aroma and a slight metallic scent and a huge CO2 bite on the nose from all the carbonation.

Taste: The flavor of tangy wheat rolls onto the tongue at first, followed by a spicy hop flavor.

Mouthfeel: It is a very easy drinking beer. The body is light and there is a slight bitter presence in the beer.

Overall: It felt pretty average, lacking a lot of yeast character in the aroma and flavor that come from drinking a fresh Hefeweizen. For an import it stands up pretty well and is still enjoyable to drink.
