Beer is 90 percent water! Our brewing water is drawn from two brewery wells 160 metres deep.
The original since 1886.
This classic wheat beer blends gently spicy malt aromas with mildly bitter hops. Its secret lies in our unique ERDINGER brewing yeasts. They provide the fruity notes and unmistakably fresh flavour. The finishing touch for every ERDINGER Weissbier is a further specialty: the “Bayerische Edelreifung” or double maturity method. After the main fermentation process, we give our beer the time it needs to mature a second time in the bottle. And we are happy to give it this time. Because this allows its delicious lively nature and the harmonious interplay of its various aromas to fully unfold.

Important note for allergy sufferers: our wheat beer specialties contain malted barley and wheat!
Malt gives the beer its body and colour. Our experienced master brewers select very special wheat and barley varieties.
The soul of a beer. ERDINGER’s master brewers use exquisite hop varieties that give our wheat beer a mildly aromatic bitterness.

The right glass
Tailor-made for our wheat beer – allowing the aromas to fully unfold:
- The upper spherical shape concentrates the aromas and makes them appear more intensive.
- Due to the curved shape of the glass, the wheat beer enters the mouth behind the tip of the tongue when drinking. This emphasizes its freshness. The beer’s elegant sweetness remains in the background.
- The aromas are freshly developed. The gently spicy and slightly fruity notes can be easily perceived.
Did you know?
We use the double maturity method, or “Bayerische Edelreifung”. Only a few breweries still maintain this additional, second maturing process – and you can taste the difference.
