BTOD: Erdinger Hefeweizen

Since it is summer we have and will be a little heavy on the wheat beers and in that vane today we have the Erdinger hefeweizen. This is a bottle fermented beer that observes the rules of the Reinheitsgebot.

Well it was only $1.99 for 20 oz.Posted by Picasa

Observance of the Purity law and a dark glass bottle portend a drinkable beer yet I was not fulfilled by this brew. Perhaps I have too strict of standards for a wheat from friggin Baveria, but none the less I was under whelmed. The beer has a great light golden color but is a little weak on everything from nose to after taste. Not bad mind you, just a little weak.

Brewery: Erdinger Weissbräu
Year: 1886
Origin: Germany
Style: Hefe Weizen
Content: 5.3%
Rating: Needs more… something.
Recommendation: A good choice for those looking to try a weizen for the first time but for pros only useful as a change up pitch.
