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's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
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

Banzale (224) - FRANCE - MAR 13, 2017
Acheter à tabac&co palais des bières dans famiflora à dottignies. Bouteille de 50cl. Couleur dorée avec quelque reflet peu brillance et légèrement trouble. Quel mousse ! Très jolie col de mousse qui ce tiens bien , belle épaisseur et crémeuse. Au nez : c’est le malts et le céréales, la levure et quelque note épicé. En bouche : c’est un peu léger . Manque de corps . Note de malts très présent avec la sensation céréales et levure . Petit arrière bouche épicé mais très discret type canelle. Le corps d’une pils je trouve avec des arômes trop effacé. Bière de saison hivernale qui désaltére sans plus.

surething_ii (154) - Šenkvice, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle at Smokies pub, Pezinok. My favorite Erdinger. This was actually first beer that made me leave pilsners and now after 7+ years I still like it. It’s just tiny bit different than regular weissbier. But still I appreciate it.

Vycap RJ. Tmavo zlata farba, biela pena. Vona jemne psenicna, skoro ziadne tony bananov. Chut sladova, psenicna, jemne banany, kyselkavo-sladka. Nie dobre.

tricksta_p (4109) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2016
Bottle from Biernavigatie. Aroma is wheat, citrussy fruits, yeast, spicy notes, clove, bread. Flavour is moderate sweet and light bitter. Body is medium. Bit above average Hefeweizen, not as much banana as citrussy fruits, more bitter than the usual Hefe. Good one.

klm1 (1337) - Bled/SF, - DEC 30, 2016
Bottle: pours deep golden (srm 10), haze, with unstable foamy off-white head!? Aroma: almost no banana like esters, almost no clove like phenols, some soapy undertones!?. Flavor is practically the same: weak banana like esters, some clove-like phenols, some spicy notes, typical for rye?, balanced with bread like components. Body is medium, texture soft, carbonation is medium to high.

nephirem (409) - 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.
