A malt aroma gives wheat beer a slightly sweet taste and a touch of hop bouquet adds to the appeal. Spicy and yeasty-fresh. Full-bodied, a lingering bitterness adds to the taste sensation. Erdinger Alkoholfrei is fresh and lively with fine bubbles (in fact, that’s the higher proportion of carbon dioxide at work). To enjoy at its best, open and leave for a few minutes. If you can resist it.
Delicate foods like fish, seafood and sushi pair well with this alcohol free wheat beer – think what goes with a crisp white wine. And try a ball of soft Buffalo mozzarella as the ideal cheese.
Isotonic? What’s that about?
Isotonic drinks can quickly replace the fluids, salts and minerals we lose when sweating. Indeed, they are easy for our systems to take on board. So, you could settle for a sugary sports drink after exercise – or reach for a tasty and isotonic low-alcohol beer instead.

Erdinger Weissbrau has brewed one thing in its 130 year history – and that’s Bavarian specialty ‘weissbier’ or wheat beer. As a traditional brewery, they make no compromises when it comes to the German Purity Law.
Weissbier or wheat beer?
Surprisingly, it’s the same thing! Wheat beer is made using at least 50 percent malted wheat. ‘Wheat beer’ is used everywhere, except in its native Bavaria, where it’s weissbier or ‘white beer’. Although only the foam is actually white, the name refers to its much lighter, golden color – as opposed to the brown ales drunk for many centuries in Germany.
