Leapbeer Review #70 Erdinger Weissbier

So after posting those beer pouring videos I really wanted to try that inverted pour trick. So I went to the LQ and picked up an Erdinger Weissbier, and went to my local megamart and bought some super tall beer glasses. For those of you wondering what pour I was talking about click here .

This wheat beer pours to a lovely cloudy golden colour with a nice fruity head on top. When I did the inverted pour I pulled the glass up too fast which lead to some initial spillage, but I stuck with it and it worked out alright. When it was near the bottom I gave the bottle a shake, like I had seen on other internet videos, and shook the last bit of the yeast onto the beer.

This beer tastes great. The head has a nice fruity scent to it. And as you pour it into your mouth it fills with the liquid and immediately carbonates on your palate. I’ve always enjoyed the taste of a good wheat beer. This one does not disappoint.

#70 in the Leapbeer Journey is Erdinger Weissbier

Its a very tasty beer, I highly suggest it .

#7 (what?) BFtP Dr Funk Dunkel by Phillips Brewery

This is the first in the Blast from the Past review of a previously glossed over beer. The Dr Funk Dunkel is a standard dunkelweisen, or dark wheat beer. Its very good, albeit mild. This is an easily quaff-able ale. I’d like to say that there is soemthing execptional about this beer, but its a very standard dunkel. That said dunkel is one of my originally preferred craft brews. Its a wheat beer, with an edge. It has the easy finish of a wheat beer but the stronger taste of a dark beer. I’m a fan of this kind of beer. That said this isn’t the best dunkel I’ve had. It goes without saying that this is a relatively small market, and in my opinion Phillips could have made this a stronger tasting beer. I really hope that this beer can take off, OR that it can be retooled to an uberdunkel and then sold. I know Phillips has alot of strong flavoured beers, but I’d like them to bump this up a bit. I really like a strong flavoured beer, and this is weaker than most craft beers. It does have the crisp finish I love in a of a wheat beer.

A solid offering that left me wanting more.
