Erdinger
Self-Defined Style: 
Kristal Weissebier
Strength (ABV): 
5.3% ABV

Erdinger Weissbier 'crystal clear' is particularly welcome as a tasty thirst-quencher for hot summer days. This specialty wheat beer gets its 'crystal clear' appearance from a particularly long filtration process, known in the industry as "fine filtration", whereby the beer becomes completely clear. This gives Erdinger Weissbier 'crystal clear' its sparkling and refreshing character - which also makes it the ideal wheat beer for warm summer days.

Best With: 
This filtered German wheat beer makes an excellent accompaniment to chicken picatta or lemon pepper sea bass.

Heineken was created by a group of dedicated people pursuing the highest quality and craftsmanship in brewing.

Its mildly bitter taste, fresh, fruity aroma, bright colour and exceptional clarity are obtained using only the purest water, hops and barley malt.

product: 

Hoegaarden White

Product - Hoegaarden
Brewed By: 
Hoegaarden
Self-Defined Style: 
Belgian White Beer
Strength (ABV): 
5.0% ABV

Hoegaarden is the authentic Belgian wheat or white beer. It has a unique and extremely complex brewing process whereby the brand is first top fermented and then is refermented within the bottle - ending up in a unique cloudy-white appearance. The brand's unique appearance is mirrored by its one-of-a-kind taste - sweet and sour beer with a little bitterness, slightly spicy, with a strong touch of coriander and a hint of orange, perfect for warm summer days, instead of other refreshing beverages. Refreshing, a little quirky, and decidedly different - naturally.

Best With: 
This Belgian-style wheat beer works well on its own as an aperitif, but also pairs well with lighter fare such as salads with a citrus dressing. It can work surprisingly well with omelets made with apples and goat cheese. Some people enjoy this beer with a slice of orange as a garnish.
