From Erding Germany’s Erdinger Weissbräu comes their “Erdinger Weissbier” a Hefeweizen. The beer pours a cloudy golden colour with a white head. The aroma consists of grassy hops, citrus and wheat. The flavour is of grassy hops, citrus, malts and wheat. The alcohol content of this Hefe is 5.3%. This beer has a really fresh refreshing flavour and would be good for any summer day!
Commercial Description: Erdinger Weissbier is not only the undisputed classic in the Erdinger product range, it is also quite simply the wheat beer par excellence. It is brewed using fine yeast according to a traditional recipe and, of course, in strict accordance with the Bavarian Purity Law. Even today, the beer is still bottle-fermented in the traditional way; it takes three to four weeks for Erdinger Weissbier ‘with fine yeast’ to mature. Only the finest ingredients are used in its production. Years of experience and constant quality checks guarantee the beer’s unmistakable flavor.
Ah, a classic! This one sticks out in my memory from my last week in Ottawa. My friends and I were pub crawling and ended up at Hooley’s, where I tilted a glass of this. Not the first or last, but definitely a special one.
I probably would never have tried this beer if the distributor had not requested I do a review and push it as a beer to drink while watching the Super Bowl. Some of these generic looking German and English beer just don’t grab me. Why do they make them look so bloody boring? Luckily it so taste quite good. It is not a style that I run out to have but it was super refreshing.
