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.

Quite memorable to me, it counts among my absolute favourite beers. Lovely orangey, slgihtly richer than typical hefe colour and typical thick foamy hefe head. Properly described by others, I find its smoothness and slightly lighter flavouring makes it one of the most drinkable hefes on the globe. 3 cheers for Erdinger!

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 20, 2012
Single bottle purchased from a Netto Discount Markt in Altenberg, Germany on 12/18/2012. Colour: Dark orange, clouded, medium creamy head. Nose: Lots of butterscotch/caramel malt, hint of banana, marshmallow, cream cheese. Very nice. Taste: medium-light sweet, light bitter, medium-light sour. The nose hinted that this one would be quite sweet but it ends up being rather civil. The marshmallow and caramel do appear. A great wood-fired roast is present. Great creamy mouth feel. Hopped light in my opinion but it by no means leaves it empty. A very pleasant drink.

Cloudy orange colour, very lively, huge white head. Aroma is sweet, sugary, banana & wheat. Taste is lightly spicey, not over the top in the bubblegum/banana/cloves stakes, all are restrained. Nice mouthfeel. A superior weisse, deserving of a much higher average score, for those who are bothered by such things

Bottle shared with McTapps. What a great beer. Fruity, easy to drink but still with a full body and some aroma of very tasty malt. Huge one.

Nice and balanced aroma. Flavour is beautiful and round. Little bit of sweetness and fruits. Well balanced.

Half liter bottle from Beer Run, 12/11/13. Funny name! Pours a hazy dark orange color with a large foamy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of soft wheat, toast, caramel, a bit of fruitiness. The taste is caramel, wheat, mild spice, mild herbal notes, very faint fruits and an even fainter bit of smoke. Medium bodied, low carbonation, dry, good balance. Exceptional beer.

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.

5.6% Cloudy yellow with a nice head, I could not really detect any difference from the classic Erdinger Weissbier but I didn’t have one to compare, it was still very good though.
