Before I tell you all about the Edelweiss Weissbier Snowfresh, a disclaimer is needed due to the fact that I am half-Austrian. That fact may explained why I am predisposed to love a wheat beer that is flavoured with alpine herbs (as well as schnitzels and a variety of cured meats. Though I hate marzipan, so my theory might be bunk). Pours a hazy straw with a small head for a wheat beer. Lots of lemon and citrus, which goes well with the notes of pine and herbs. The added ingredients don’t overwhelm the beer, but add a different spiciness than is usually found in a German wheat beer. It is a tad too sweet, but I don’t know if adding some hops to dry out the beer would interfere with the herbal notes. Regardless, this is a nice wheat beer that satisfies though warm weather days. (And for those sticklers about drinking size, it is one of the few German weisses that is less than 500mL.)
