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.

nephirem (439) - CROATIA - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle, 0.5l. Pours hazy golden body with slight reddish hue. Huge and creamy white head. Lovely visible carbonation. Excellent head retention and nice lacing. Pleasantly sweet nose - herbal, wheat, yeast, a bit caramel. Thin to medium body, softly carbonated. Watery texture, but smooth on the tongue. Mildly sweet taste, nicely balanced. Aroma of yeast, wheat, herbs, spices, caramel. Slightly sugary. Usual banana notes, but not so distinct. Lacks the fullness, feels a bit bland. Finish is dry and sweet. Overall, quite pleasant. A bit different then your usual hefe. Nice one.

Bulk_Carrier (5073) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - DEC 22, 2016
Poured into a weizen glass, the appearance was a muddled burnt dark orange color with a two finger white foamy head that dissipated pretty quick. But there’s no lacing. The aroma had some of the normal qualities of a hefeweizen (some clove, banana esters, sweet wheat) and then some red delicious apples. The flavor brought the hefeweizen qualities inward sweetly and letting the clove slide further to the background. Some sharp phenols hit slyly. But normal hefeweizen aftertaste touching the finish crisply. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a great sessionability about it. Carbonation feels good, some prickliness. Overall, "if it fits, it ships," thanks Erdinger for sending across the pond. I could drink this again.

Icedwarf (1522) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2016
Levendig oranje geel bier met veel stevig schuim. Smaak is friszuur en fruitig met iets van abrikoos en ananas maar dit komt niet echt naar voren. Jammer, maar al met al wel beter dan de standaard Weizen.

Sircatis (235) - FRANCE - NOV 12, 2016
Bière blanche allemande. Une hefe weizen plus forte et moins fruitée. Pas trop mal.
