Edelweiss (Weissbeer-Hefetrub)

Brau Union Österreich AG

Austria

If you haven't yet discovered that hefe weiss beers are the way to go on a hot summer day than you really need to discover it. This is as good an example as any. Easy drinking, fresh tasting, and flavourful. Some light spices such as cloves, and about half way through it starts to taste of lemon. It's got a nice thick and long lasting head on it, and nice carbonation. It is filling enough to make this more of a 1-2 drink beer as opposed to a "write off the rest of the afternoon" beer. You can do better than this if you really like the style, but it's a quality beer and certainly a good introduction the style.
