BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: German Hefeweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.90%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Fans of down-to-earth beers will love smooth ERDINGER Urweisse.

With its distinctive top-fermenting beer profile and strong yeasty flavor, Urweisse is a truly traditional Bavarian wheat beer specialty.

The soft initial taste is accompanied by malted wheat and caramel flavors mixed with hints of clove, banana and yeast. This is followed by a lingering finish of sun-ripened aroma hops from the Hallertau region. Urweisse contains slightly more carbon dioxide than other ERDINGER Weissbier – making it a lively taste sensation.

The recipe dates back to the brewery's founding days in 1886. The bottle and nostalgic label also awake memories of days gone by. This smooth wheat beer specialty tastes best when served in its own specially developed, hand-blown glass.

Hazy dark gold with a large, dimpled head. Wheaty Belgian yeast nose. Pleasant full wheat body with more spicy Belgian yeast finishing crisp and off-dry. Lovely.

Pours slightly misty rich gold with beautiful rich head 4cm that collapses down eventually to about 1cm cream. Aroma - yeasty banana. Taste - clove and banana but subtle, well balanced, not overwhelming. Rich lingering mouthfeel.

Spicy yet still a but sweet. Maybe over carbonated in bottle, better on draft in erding.

Pours a crystal clear copper tinged orange color. Thick velvety white head dissipates somewhat but maintains a nice one to two finger head.

Aroma has notes of clove, citrus - mostly a light orange aroma, a hint of spice and lots of wheat.

Taste has notes of wheat, clove and citrus with some pepper and bready malt notes. This particular bottle is old and there are certain oxidation/cardboard notes that aren't great, but I am not going to dock the beer for them since I knew this was an old bottle going in.

Feel is light to medium bodied, but very drinkable. Vibrant vivacious carbonation.

Overall a nice Hefe - I'd love to find this fresher but even past its prime it was quite good.

A grainy malty beer with spices at the end, spices with a body to them. Slight hoppy coriander.

Taste rating in words: A meal where you have a great thing going, you just add a little pepper and it makes it perfect.

Pours hazy, gold in color with one inch head. Taste is big white bread and green apple. Light bodied, high carbonation, and sweet. Above average and will get again, but I prefer others in the style.

Beautiful peachy orange body. Cloudy and vibrant. Pillowy, soapy, rocky 3 finger head dissipates slowly leaving a thin cap and ring.
Wheaty aroma with cooked green apples and faint clove.
Slight wheat and grain taste with some green apple sourness and touch of lemon zest and clove in the finish. Notes of honey hear and there, along with some yeasty bread.
Medium body and medium high carbonation. Smooth mouth feel and very clean.

Beer pours a cloudy deep yellow almost orange color with a large white head. The smell has citrus notes and clove. The flavor is slightly sweet citrus crisp and clean but a little more carbonated than I prefer. Overall not as good as Celebrator but still a darn good beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Hazy yellow-gold, huge head.

Smell: Apple pie, then sweet with cloves.

Taste: Lemony, bready, a little spicy. Kind of a sour note.

Overall: Beer #3 from the sampler. All the beers were over 12 months old, I'm reviewing anyway as 95% of the German imports here are at least that old. This one is the first that the age may have gotten the better of it. Smelled great, tasted like their standard hefe but with a sour note.
