Brewery Location: Erding, Germany
I am not the biggest fan of Erdinger’s normal weizen, but I do like their dark weizen. I saw this in the store, and I figured I would simply try it. “Schneeweiß” mean “snow white” in English. Not like the fairy tale, but solely as a descriptive word—white snow—since this is a special winter beer. Note that the German title of the Snow White fairy tale is “Sneewittchen.”
Sight: This appeared to be filtered, due to its much more clear appearance. It was a golden brown color, with lots of little bubbles. There was a good amount of head, and it stayed on pretty thick, even a while after pouring.
Smell: I don’t know why, but I am just not really getting much of a scent out of this one. It’s not bad, it’s just that I am not quite really picking up on anything for some reason. I don’t have a cold or anything either, so I don’t know what’s up.
Taste: It tastes alright. It seems to be a bit smoother than a normal weizen, but also a bit more bitterness, leaving a lasting bitterness on the back of my tongue. It seems to cause a lot of phlegm to build up in the back of my mouth, so take that for what that’s worth.
