Erdinger Weissbier (Erdinger Weissbräu)

Erdinger Weissbier is a hefeweizen from Erdinger Weissbräu (out of Erding, Germany). This wheat beer has 2.6 g of carbs and 44 Kcal per 100 ml, and clocks in at an easy drinking 5.3% ABV.

A wheat beer for those who love outstanding and unforgettable wheat beer flavor.

Weissbier pours a cloudy yellow-orange. There is practically no head, but what is there starts at inch for quickly receding.

The smell is a mixture of citrus and white wine notes. Interesting…

And with the odd smell of this beer comes an odd taste. White grape juice is the dominate flavor in the taste, with a mild spicy bitterness coming through in the back (possibly floral hops).

Mouthfeel is light and airy, with carbonation being easily detectable. There is no drying to speak of, but a slight heat is present.

What I got from this beer was not what I expected when I ordered this beer. It tasted more like a wine, with the traditional hefeweizen flavors hidden behind the blast of white grapes. Interesting, but not a hefeweizen that I’d order again.

Overall: 5.5 out of 10

As a HEFEWEIZEN: 4.5 out of 10
