COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

fidelis83 (1910) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Slightly hazy gold pour with a tall, pillowy off white head. Aroma is full of banana, bready yeast, wheat, toast and a touch of spicy hops. Flavor is pretty loaded with banana up front, followed by wheat, lemon, floral notes, dusty grain, an odd tartness, sweet, yeasty bread dough, toast, and herbal and spicy hops. Light body, heavy and fairly sharp carbonation and dry feel throughout. Not very good as far as real Hefe’s go, hits a lot of the right notes, but doesn’t really pull it off. The palate goes a long way toward killing its score.

Oelbas (150) - DENMARK - JUL 28, 2014
Tåget mrk gylden med holdbart hvidt skum. Duft af malt, overmoden banan og måske et snert orange. Smagen er maltet med tydelige gærrester og samme elementer som duften. Svag bitterhed og kort eftersmag uden bitterhed.

mutz (556) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2014
Troebel goudoranje kleur en een flinke dichte kraag. Er zweeft wat bezinksel in rond. Ruikt gistig en melig, licht kruidnagel, lichtzurig. Smaakt fris, beetje banaan, licht zuurtje. Niet al teveel body.

LordAltbier (102) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 10, 2014
Antrunk ist schön Hefig, der Abgang ist leicht wässerig. Schmeckt etwas intensiver als das normale Erdinger Weißbier, kann man trinken aber ist kein besonderes Weissbier!

Marstonlad (400) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2014
Pours cloudy golden with a huge white head. Aroma displays plenty of wheaty maltiness,banana and cloves. It is well balanced between fruits, malts and spices. Taste is light sweet; some sourness also appears. Smooth, round maltiness dominates with fruit esters. Medium bodied, softly carbonated palate. Very tasty hefeweizen all in all, German quality.
