ERDINGER Urweisse – in good old Bavarian tradition
A cause for celebration among weissbier fans!
A particularly strong, spicy aroma, a distinctive yeast flavor and an unmistakable top-fermenting beer profile - these are the characteristics of ERDINGER’s new family member in good old Bavarian tradition. The recipe for Urweisse dates back to the brewery’s founding days over 120 years ago. It owes its distinctive, traditional weissbier flavor to a special malt, a different hop variety and a special yeast.
And as appearance is just as important, Urweisse has been given its own special look - which will especially please all friends of the "good old Bavarian tradition". The label features the historic "Beautiful Tower" of Erding. The Euro bottle and original glass awake memories of days gone by. The new crate is also particularly eye-catching with its historic wooden look and "scorched" lettering.
Best is to simply taste it for yourself! ERDINGER Urweisse is available in Bavaria from January 1, 2008 and from February 1 in Baden-Württemberg. Presentation cartons are available in the ERDINGER Fan Shop from January onward.

omhper (23711) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2011
Bottled at Piazza Monaco, Munich Airport. Cloudy pale orange, rich creamy head. Fruity banana aroma. Sweetish with medium body and spritzy mouthfeel. Yeast induced banana and clove flavours are prevalent here. muc hmore so than in other Erdinger beers. Soapy finish. Slight notes of boiled vegetables gives a commercial weizen flavour, akin to many Russian weizens. More "real" weizens than ither Erdinger stuff, but still rather industrial.
