Maybe one of the most famous Weiss in Greece! It’s in the first place in distribution of Weiss (wheat) beer globally. First on demand and its presence is frequent on most beer market points. The German Erdinger won its fans and not for nothing, because is a beer with history and tradition.
Erdinger as we said is one of the classiest representative of Weiss. It has the classic blurry blond color, while the foam is creamy and rich. The sweet, sour and dry taste, that in its end is a little bitter. The aromas that occur are yeast and fruits, while in between them someone can recognize pineapple, citrus and apple. We cannot fail to mention the flavors of cereal that will certainly arise, as it is one of its basic components.
Erdinger is a top fermented and unpasteurized beer which production is based on barley malt and of course wheat, hops, yeast and water. Its produced based on the traditional recipe, which is bound by “The Beer Purity Law” of Bavaria, known as Reinheitsgebot. The beer is aged for three to four weeks. Just like all other Weiss it contains sediment of yeast in the bottle and is being refermented in it. Its alcohol is being in medium levels. It’s been in the team of the beers that have classic alcohol levels of 5.3%abv.
It’s a refreshing and light beer, which accompanies apart of Bavarian food with sausages, lots of salads and a good cheese platter. It is served in its own Weiss glass, which has the appropriate shape. The ideal serving temperature is5oC-7oC.
It is produced in Germany through Erdinger Weissbräu. The beer and the brewery have the name of hosted town, Erding. In Greece is being imported by Athenian Brewery and it is the first beer in sales in 300ml and 500ml bottles and also in barrel. The Athenian Brewery is also importing the dark version of Erdinger Dunkel and during the period of the Olympic Games of Athens 2004, when they presented its special version.
