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

Poured into a fluted pilsner glass.

Look: Very hazy dark wheat color. Thick foamy tan head, good retention. Light lacing.

Aroma: Sweet malts, grains, faint banana.

Taste: Malt sweetness, wheat, grains.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.

Overall: I like this. It's not a banana bomb, very clean and subtle.

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.
