Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 50: Erdinger Weissbier

A wheat beer from the world's largest wheat beer brewery.

Erdinger Weissbier

Pours a cloudy orange. The head is medium sized, creamy and fades very slowly.

First Sip: Sweet wheat malt is the dominant flavour, with some citrus in the background. A small amount of hops builds to leave a nice, slightly astringent finish. The yeast is not noticeable at first, but it's lurking around there in the background. Mouthfeel is creamy and a little foamy, with a very mild carbonation tingle.

Once again, the flavours improve as the beer warms in the glass. This is another yummy beer, even though the taste isn't as intense as some of the others. The slight dryness of the hops makes me want to drink more. I can't see myself tiring of drinking this one.
