A Perfect Summer Beer.
About the Beer Maker
At the world's largest wheat beer brewery, tradition and progress go hand in hand: Erdinger beer is brewed according to traditional recipes, but using state-of-the-art technology. Today, beer connoisseurs in Germany and around the world regard their traditional specialty beers from Erding, Bavaria, as the ultimate in wheat beer enjoyment.
The beginnings of Erdinger Weissbräu date back to 1886, the year in which construction of a wheat beer brewery in Erding was first officially recorded. After several changes in ownership, the General Manager at the time, Franz Brombach, bought the brewery in 1935 and re-named it Erdinger Weissbräu on December 27, 1949.
In 1965, the son of Franz Brombach, Werner Brombach, entered the business. He took over the private brewery in 1975 and still leads his father's successful business today. In addition to a strong emphasis on quality, Werner Brombach focuses above all on a targeted sales and promotion strategy with a clear brand identity, which highlights the values of the old Bavarian beer specialty and its superior quality standards.
Today, Erdinger weissbier stands for wheat beer enjoyment and the Bavarian brewing tradition. The traditional brewery has established itself as the national and international market leader for weissbier. As one of Germany's largest private breweries, Erdinger Weissbräu is among the leaders on the national German beer market.
About the Beer
Erdinger Kristall is particularly welcome as a tasty thirst-quencher for hot summer days.
This specialty wheat beer comes in a 500ml bottle and gets its crystal appearance from a particularly long filtration process, known in the industry as "fine filtration", whereby the beer becomes completely clear.
This gives Erdinger Kristall its sparkling and refreshing character - which also makes it the ideal wheat beer for warm summer days.
It has a crystal clear golden coloured body with a nice off-white head, even from draught. It has an aroma of wheat, coriander seed, yeast, corn and a small amount of curacao. It's medium-bodied; with a chewy taste with strong bananas, cloves and yeast in the taste. Aftertaste is nice and refreshing - malt is leftover with a good amount of sweetness.
Brewed in strict accordance with our own traditional recipe, Erdinger Kristall meets the highest quality standards and satisfies the most sophisticated palate.
