grapevine is blowing these out right now, so i took a chance on a very affordable bottle, but this totally impressed me as well as my guests! its a lovely winter wheat beer, i expected it to be dark just because of the winter aspect, but its actually quite pale, a shade or two darker towards caramel than their original hefe, creamy headed and rich looking through a light haze, festive in its own way, very lively looking. the aroma is awesome, floral honey and toasted nuts, almost breakfasty in that way. i get the wheat here, toasted bread and baked bran, its heartier than their original hefeweizen, but still majorly drinkable, i love the light sweetness in the flavor with the wheat, its just awesome, classically german on the yeast, banana and minerals and almonds, great body, protein, starch, also lots of spice notes that linger all the way through. i great cold weather german brew, even with a year on it, not a trace of oxidation or anything. upbeat carbonation has it drinking easy too. head on down to grapevine and get a very affordable bottle before they are gone! i was really surprised and impressed with this. i dont often think of germany when it comes to holiday beers, but this really hits the mark! far better than its ratings...

Pours hazy, gold in color with one inch head. Taste is banana, clove, and sour dough bread. Medium bodied, high carbonation, sweet. More dry than most hefes that I have had. Has a bit of a pilsener taste. Good, although I prefer others in the style.

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.

rom 2d2despuma. In Bavaria glass. Playing South Park Stick of Truth. The typical banana-clove of a hefe are replaced here with some dusty yet pleasant dry spicyness. A bit more foamy than desiderable

500ml bottle into a tall weizen glass. Paid £2.70 for a single bottle.

Pours a slightly hazy, light golden-orange coloured body with masses of swift, visible, streaming carbonation. A three-finger in height, foamy, white head slowly reduces to a dense cap, leaving small amounts of spotty, soapy lace.

The subdued nose leads primarily with notes of lightly bready malted wheat. Traces of faintly fruity yeast are noticeable in the background, along with a larger amount of grassy hop bitterness. Taste follows suit in much the same way. Simple, tangy malted wheat leads upfront, fading just slightly towards the mid-palate to reveal a vague and subtle generic fruitiness. In the mouth, fine, lively carbonation and a medium to full body give a smooth and creamy feel. Towards the end, grassy hop profiles build, culminating in a dry, moderate bitterness that lingers on the palate finishing clean, crisp and dry.

Overall this is a very average beer. It’s bright, clean, easy drinking and refreshing, but the yeast esters and phenols that characterize the style are barely perceptible and an out of place grassy bitterness dominates the finish, detracting from drinking pleasure. I can’t say I’d happily part with my own money to try it again.

Hazy orange color with white, frothy head. Aroma has malt, overripe orange and a bit of alcohol. Taste isn't very intense, just some wheat and yeast notes. Body is medium and highly effervescent. Not bad but not my favorite approach on the style.

From the 25 fl. oz bottle with an expiration date of 08-2016. Sampled on December 12, 2015.

The pour is yellow and heady.

Lots of toasted biscuit and bread on the nose as well as a slight grassy hop character. It reminds of most any other German brewed beer.

Light to medium body.

The taste has a decent toasty character with a mild sweetness and grassy hop finish. A pretty straight forward German brew and I am not sure why this is any different.

Deep hazy gold colour, with a faint malty nose and spicy hops. Mostly malty and a little spicy. Not much to it but good.

Taken from notes, March 13th of 2014.

A: The body is semi-opaque with a yellow and orange-y colour. Plus, the head is almost nonexistent with no lacing nor retention.
S: The aroma is filled with a bready presence surrounded beautifully by strong malts.
T: The taste profile has its bready presence again, now with some citrus coming over - namely lemon, and some caramel that goes on very well.
M: There's a normal hop profile for a winterbier with some sweetness attached to it.
O: Nothing special but good enough to have next year.
