look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

BBD: 08-2014

Opaque orange body, fluffy head of foam that rises above the rim of the glass in rocky peaks. Long lasting surface coverage that remains unbroken for the duration of the glass. Flecks of lace dot the glass in concentric circles.

Mellow bready wheat aroma, not much in the way of yeast esters.

Smooth feel, taste is also easygoing with mellow wheat and the slightest clove presence. Slight oxidation. Creamy and medium bodied with a light wheaty aftertaste. Not sweet at all. Pretty easy to drink but not much to set it apart really. For a winter warmer I usually go for Aventinus or the Eisbock version.

500 ml bottle poured into a weizen glass.
5.6% ABV, Best Before End: 08-2014

A - Raw honey golden in color, this hefe pours with a classic cap of tall white foam. The suds slowly collapse into the hazy, well-carbonated beer draping sheets of beautiful lace down the glass for an appearance that begs to be sipped.

S - Like any good hefeweiss, this beer is driven by a yeasty aroma but instead of the nostalgic summer time notes of ripe banana, bubblegum, and spicy clove, this yeast nose offers far more muted, dusty, earthy tones trickling into soft wheat.

T - Grainy pale malts give way to soft, bountiful wheat that's finished by a strong earthy yeast profile that directly mirror's the aroma's earthy, dusty scent with just the slightest hints of fruit and spice but neither harken back to the traditional summer-like hefe characteristics.

M - Creamy and smooth from front to back, Scheeweisse has a wonderfully effervescent carbonation level that gives the dry finish a lively feel!

O - Want a hefeweiss in winter without lamenting that it's winter? Grab yourself a bottle of Erdinger's winter hefeweiss, Schneeweisse, their winter seasonal. This hefe is complete with the same classic appearance and drinkable, creamy mouthfeel but without those overarching banana and clove notes that'll send your mind right back to the days when you could enjoy a refreshing beer outside. This earthier yeasty version of a hefe is a welcome, however brief, departure from the classic summery wheat beers of Germany!

BBD of 08-14. When I was stationed in Germany, there were a fair amount of brewers who put out Christmas or winter beers. Some times the differences between these & their standard beers were not huge. I wonder if that's what I'm getting here. Same abv as their flagship beer

Pours an effervescent apricot with 4 fingers of pearl colored head. Stays effervescent, alright head retention & lacing

S: Band-aid & not much else

T: Grassyness, slight breadyness & a bit of caramel & white grape up front. More grassiness, faint wheat tartness, pears & a bit of caramel & green banana as this warms. Finishes dry, fruity, with a kiss of taffy, & more green banana

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation

Drinks easy, but nothing special here

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a huge, dense, white head with that typically hefeweizen persistence. Hazy, straw-raw sienna color. Soft, yeasty aroma with a little spice. Starts with a sweet, spicy flavor with a twinge of metallic. Then a touch of bitterness, then comes that really nice hefe wheat and yeast into the finish.

This is very nice, as I'd expect from Erdinger. Not overly spicy, so it's a really pleasant divergence on their hefeweizens. Apparently there are no spices added to this, it's just the length of time they age it. Fascinating.

Pours a hazy golden/amber with a medium creamy off-white head. Smells of spicy phenolics. Taste begins with some bananna, then some husky grain, then a big metallic flavor, finishing with a smooth fruity finish. Mouthfeel is good. Overall a pretty good beer, though the metallic flavor is a bit much.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

500ml bottle poured into a seized glass. Best before date of 8/2014 means this is about as fresh as it gets for imported German beer.

A: Pours a cloudy amber/orange color with darker tawny hues. Huge rocky head retains its massive size throughout. Lots of clumpy lacing.

S: Bready and wheaty with hints of walnut and toasty crust. Green bananas. Pineapple and lively tropical fruit esters. Good dose of clove and pepper spiciness becomes dominant. Yeasty throughout. Hint of alcohol.

T: Toasted crust, walnut, bready. Baked banana bread. Green bananas. Yeast is a constant flavor. Spiciness dominates mid to late. Peppery and clovey. Fleeting hop oils bring a dash of hop spice. Quick jab of alcohol. Yeasty and doughy finish with a slight lingering alcohol prick.

M: Round and creamy with some of that frothy wheat feel. Firm. Aggressive prickling carbonation.

O: A larger, more muscular hefeweizen brewed for the winter months. It sacrifices some of the nuances of the style in favor of a more forceful approach.

3.96/5  rDev +11.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a hast dark golden orange color with golden straw edges and a frothy, three finger white foam head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Possibly over carbonated with great retention, taking a long time to settle and leaving chunks of soapy lacing behind.

Earthy, zesty spice aroma with hints of pepper, clove and cardamom followed by bready yeast, bubble gum and citrus. The peppery spice really stands out as it warms but is nicely countered by the yeast, banana and citrus zest notes. Lots of peppery lemon and orange peel in there. I'm not really sure what makes this a winter wheat beer. Maybe the heavy spice profile but it's not very different from a traditional take on the style.

On the fuller end of medium body with soft carbonation and a strong peppery spice presence that lingers over the yeast, light fruit and citrus zest into a sweet, slightly dry finish. Refreshing zesty spice character with hints of clove, coriander, ginger and white pepper, and while it dominates the palate, it's isn't too strong or overpowering, letting the other notes come through. There's a prominent bready yeast flavor mid-palate with hints of bread, banana and bubblegum. Crisp, zesty citrus sweetness toward the finish with lemon spritz and orange rind. Complex yet well balanced and very easy to drink. A really refreshing classic wheat beer with a great zesty spice presence that's countered by just the right amount of yeast and citrus sweetness.

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.

From: Binny's, Des Plaines, IL
Date: Best by 2014-08
Glass: Weihenstephan weizen glass

Erdinger has an interesting hefeweizen with their Schneeweisse ("snow white"), interesting only in the sense that it wasn't what I was epxecting. While I was thinking of a winter beer that would exhibit a bit more toast, caramel, or roast, Erdinger surprised me with a very clean wheat beer: the esters, phenols, and malt are fairly unassuming, showcasing a very clean yeast profile. The result is an easy-drinking, but not particularly flavorful hefeweizen that I don't think I'd seek out again.

Pours a towering head of off-white foam, made up of small-sized bubbles, frothy-looking, which lasts for several minutes in a slow fade to a 0.5cm cap atop the body of the beer that lasts the duration of the drink. Lacing is present, but not exceptional, with some spots of foam clinging loosely to the sides of the glass in sparse, random patterns. Body is a dark golden yellow color, with light bringing out brighter golden yellow hues. Carbonation is visible through the nearly opaque body (70-80% opacity), high in number and fairly active.

Aroma is primarily of fairly straightforward wheat malt, slight fruity esters (bosc pear), faint yeast, and lightly toasted wheat malt. Certainly not unappetizing, but one has to inhale deeply to detect much: wonder what yeast they used and what the fermentation temperature and schedule was, as this is a seriously non-aromatic hefeweizen.

Overall flavors are very "clean" for a wheat beer: mild pear and apple fruit esters with subtle bread and grain, hints of tartness and nary a note from phenols or banana-like esters. Front of palate picks up sweet and bread-like wheat malt, fruit esters (pear and apple), hints of yeast, and minimally spicy phenolics. Mid-palate of fruit esters (bosc pear and mealy golden apples), with subdued sweetness and breadiness from wheat malt, hints of slight tartness. Back of palate encounters a mild tartness that is mixed with slight wheat malt graininess, malt sweetness, tart apple, and yeast. Aftertaste of mild yeast, tartness, bread-like wheat malt, and fruit esters (mealy apple and pear).

Beer is medium bodied, with carbonation of medium to medium-low intensity, resulting in a pleasantly foamy (3/5) and smooth (2/5) mouthfeel that generally goes well with the beer and style, though a bit more carbonation could be beneficial. Closes dry, with light to medium-light stickiness clinging to the palate.

Best before 06.13

Cloudy dull dark amber colour. Pours a nice big even off-white head. Some lacing, head fades down but doesnt quite disappear.

Smell is somehow refreshing, spicy with a medicinal edge and some bubblegum - the yeast overpowers the other notes when added.

First taste disappointing. Bubblegum on the swallow. It's too cold (my fault); too fizzy (their fault). After I add the yeasty bottle-end and it's warming a little, it's got more flavour: citrusy, malty, wheaty, some spicyness, only a little hint of clove - something sour in the swallow that I didnt like. Untypical for a wheat beer which wouldnt bother me at all. But I wont get it again, the flavours and the sour finish arent balanced and just dont work here.

500ml bottle poured into an Erdinger weizen glass by freshness date.

A:
Hazy yellow-copper color which is a bit darker than typical Hefeweizen with massive white creamy dense head that slowly recedes to decent everlasting foamy layer on the top and leaves plenty of lacing patch all around, rather high carbonation, visible bubbles of carbonation stream fast towards the top.

S:
Very malty ranging from big biscuit to slight caramel, almond, clove spice, citrus, lemon, orange peel.

T:
Upfront by biscuity sweet and malty flavor, clove/wheat spiciness and citrus/lemon zest dwell through the middle then biscuity malt sweetness re-dominates again at the almost end until the finish. The usual banana ester and yeasty trait are just subtle but they are still there with a hint.

M:
Medium-bodied, very smooth mouthfeel, crisp with actively high carbonation that is well suit to carry all the things well, quite dry finish.

D:
This brew is very malty with a prominent biscuity-like character yet also bolder than typical Hefeweizen by boosting up malty profile and alleviating norm fruity character, anyway still delicious and highly enjoyable and drinkable.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Bottle into Erdinger Weisbier pint glass (how apt!). Purchased and poured in low altitude Galway, Ireland.

A: Pours a head of nice thickness and moderate cream. Retention is average. Cloudy yellow-copper colour. Appealing.

Sm: Musty malted barley with hops. Wheat (shocker). Fresh, almost a bit flowery. Moderate strength scent. Pleasant, but nothing special.

T: Cream to a pleasant body that balances wheat and barley notes with its malt quite nicely. A bit too hoppy. The finish sits alongside the body kind of strangely. There's a slight injection of off-bitter flavour in the finish which doesn't complement the beer well. Too malty (especially for a Hefeweizen).

Mf: Too smooth, too wet. Coarseness on the climax is critical for this style, and it's missing.

Dr: It's cheap enough to have again - if I enjoyed it more. I wouldn't have it again unless I found it on draught.

A - Hazy amber orange pour yielding the usual thick rocky white weizen head with medium rentention finally settling down to a finger-thick foamy layer. Slow carbonation visible from the bottom of the tall, slender Erdinger glass (4)

S - Mild nose of wheat malts with some citrus zest meeting some spices and a dash of banana flavor. (3.5)

T - Notes of wheaty maltiness and sweetness upfront meeting with a grassy, bready citrus middle, concluding with some spices and banana phenols towards the end. (4)

M - Medium bodied mouthfeel with medium low carbonation going down creamy smooth albeit with a slightly watery feel. (4)

D - Pretty drinkable Weissbier although the nose is a tad mild. Definitely better than the standard Erdinger Weissbier on the flavor. (4)

A: Darker than normal weißbier's. Definitely orange in color. Nice fluffy head.

S: Not a strong smell, but the yeast is there.

T: A pretty flat flavor, with a slightly bitter aftertaste. At the very end, there's a bit of sweetness, but only in some of the sips.

M: It's fine. Just the bitterness isn't pleasant.

D: I wouldn't buy it again. Not so many good qualities about it, then again, not so many bad.

Got this at Bert's Bierhuis

From a bottle into a snifter

APPEARANCE: Pours a big fluffy four finger white head that mounds out of the glass. Decent retention, as it pops and fades down to a thick foam cap. Carrot or gamboge orange in color, cloudy, with higher amounts of carbonation in the form of smaller bubbles. Head eventually fades away totally, leaving no real lacing to speak of. Started out great, but ended a little lack lustre.

SMELL: Wheat malt, bready qualities as well, and some decent citrus lemon and melon notes. Some hints of clove as well. Though it misses some of those standard banana esters, it's certainly a bold and enticing nose.

TASTE: Wheat malt up front, quite sweet actually, and leads to a bready and citrus middle into a sweet bready and sour dough finish. A bold and longer lasting sweet-sour aftertaste is metallic and slightly astringent. A little off putting by the end, but not bad.

PALATE: Medium body and medium carbonation. A little light on the palate, but creamy enough. Goes down smooth and finishes quite dry; quite astringent.

OVERALL: A decent beer; certainly better than their standard Weizen. I'm not sure what gives Erdinger that sour-dough quality, but it just doesn't work for me. This one was a little too astringent as well. It's called a schneeweiß, though I'm not quite sure if this is a winter beer. Sommerweiß would be a more accurate name in my books.

Pours very well for a massive amount of rocky light tan head. The body is hazy and caramel in color.

The aroma's weak. Very little hints metallic fragrances.

The taste has sweet banana and a hint of caramel flavor.

MF is good, prickly, and wetting to the palate.

This is not a very warming beer. Thus I wouldn't prefer this to a nice Doppel or Eisbock, but it doesn't really taste too bad.

Best before date of 06-2009. Poured into pokal. Medium low natural light. taken from notes. Reviewed on 01-04-09.

Appearance: Forms a three inch white fluffy head. Hazy yellow brew with orange tint. low perceived effervescence. Thick cap lasts throughout.

Aroma: Medium low intensity. Slight clove with faint banana smell. Some faint bubblegum as well.

Taste: Medium low strength. Malty, banana and slight bubblegum up front. Slight clove character, it seems. Some earthy spicy hop flavour it seems.

Mouthfeel: High carbonation. low to medium low body. medium bitterness. Extremely crisp, goes down like a sack of broken glass.

Drinkability: Not really the archetype of Hefe-Weizens. The price / quality ratio is decent considering you're buying half a liter of it. Mouthfeel hurts it's "Sessionability" despite the Abv. I fail to see why this is named "snow wheat beer". I can't see me drinking this in mid winter.

Poured from half-liter bottle into Paulaner Weizen glass.

Appearance: A classic Weißbier- golden/amber and hazy, with a large, thick white head.

Smell: The classic Weißbier smell- banana and wheat smells, with a little bit of added fruit and spice.

Taste: A bit underwhelming. Again, typical Weißbier taste of wheat and banana, with some added fruit notes. However, it isn't quite as tasty as it smells.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with almost no carbonation- actually seems kind of flat.

Drinkability: An interesting beer. Has some shortcomings, but overall is a "different" kind of Weißbier. I would have it again for sure, but it's not the first beer of this style I would go for if given other, more "traditional" choices.

BB June 2009, served lightly chilled and cloudy in a pint-size weizen glass.

A: pours a lightly murky, blood-orangey hue with constant feed of lively carbonation, resulting in a well-lasting huge and cottony white frothy head.
S: I haven't tried the Erdinger Weissbier for a long while, but this one smells much less estery in the banana apartment as compared with most other weizen and allows the light orangey citric and mildly lemon-zesty fruitiness to lead the chorus, which consists of a dusty note of the froth, creamy wheat-ish malt and a very light tinge of melted crystal sugar. The typical spicy touch of cloves remains utterly light here, only as decoration.
T: moderately sweet, almost banana+mango-bready maltiness prevails upfront with plentiful aroma of malts, slowly ensued by a moderately-flavoured citric-zesty fruity aftertaste, soothingly woody+spicy yeastiness and a semi-dry palate to linger until the end. Pleasantly chewy in the finish, hand in hand with a wee bit of alc. and more malt+wheat-ish aroma to linger.
M&D: this is a rather malty interpretation of weizen to me, showing a thicker-than-normal body and pronounced performance of the maltiness, while in the aftertaste the usual suspects of spicy fruits do make a kickback to complement the main theme. Medium-bodied, soothingly carbonated, this weizen is very pleasant due to the malty support but still very quaffable indeed in the wintry season!
