Das Bier ist insgesamt sehr laff, ganz leicht hefig und in Anklängen frisch-süffig. Der Abgang ist ziemlich kurz und trocken, erinnert an Apfelwein… boddhitree (58) - Frankfurt, Hesse, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2013

There are many words in German that use pig or sow (connoting "extremely") to denote great taste or greatness of any sort, so maybe that explains the pig on the label? Schweinegut (pig-great), sau-lecker (pig-delicious) are 2 I can think of, but there’s also saumäßig (lousy, or beastly, or rotten). Maybe that’s what they could be hinting at with this picture.
Besides the fun picture of a pig drinking a Weissbier on the label, the label on the top states "Yeasty, Drinkable, Top-Fermenting" and on the side or (bottom) part I find the best, "Bottle-fermented," which for me says live yeast to possibly harvest for my homebrew. On the back label is a bigger surprise for me. Besides the normal BS about RHG, it states it uses Aroma hops. However, that might just mean "aroma hops" were used instead of "bittering hops" as the main hop additions. After drinking so many fränkische Biere without a leaf of aroma hops and lots of Noble hop bitterness, it should be nice to get variety.
It opened with a bang, yes, it’s bottle fermented, and I had to close the flip top immediately to avoid a minor mess. The beer pours like a regular Weisse, with a light orangish tinge to a nice deep, dark yellow. Foam is huge of course, but dissipated and laid down by the time these last 2 sentences were typed. It’s not see-through clear, but not of a hefe-weizen thickness. It looks like a normal protein haze of some of my homebrews that are a signature of bottle fermentation with some yeast in suspension. It’s not bubbling up CO2 like many Weissbiere, but that may be because I’m drinking it out of a Pils glass.
The aroma is wheat full-bore with orange marmelade lemon and a hint of bubblegum, yet no trace of aroma hops :(. The initial tastes is has a hint of sourness, spritzy but not overly so like a Hefeweizen. The wheat is as noticable as the Pils malt is. The taste has very, very light bubblegum but more in the direction of citrus, but not lemon, and finally, more of a sweet aftertaste. Basically, it’s a sweet and sour taste that lingers without any hint of hops. In summer, I can imagine it to be a great thirst quencher of a warm, sunny day. The mouthfeel is not think nor thin, really a happy medium.
Overall, I think I would’ve like it better sitting in the shade of tree with a little sweat from a nice warm day. Normally, I wouldn’t expect sourness in a Weissbier but with the Eber-Weisse, it fits in nicely. I would give it a 4 out of 5. jfb (6229) - GERMANY - NOV 21, 2012
