a wheat Oktoberfest? well, ive certainly never had one, stoked! effervescence on the pour is intense, very bubble, like hydrogen peroxide almost. rising and active white soda head against a hazy pale straw body. the nose on this isn't that different than other german hefe types, but has maybe a touch more density to the grain bill, and is just slightly less fruity as the banana notes go. the flavor is super light, far lighter than any other octoberfest styles ive had this year. I will say that its strange to have an ale, not a lager, filling this role. the long finish, yeasty and spiced, is seemingly more appropriate for fall, and I am surprised more brewers haven't gone in this direction. the wheat is a strange juxtaposition to the fall season though, light, pale, gentle, floral even, summer, out of place. great carbonation and lighter than almost any other beer under this label. a nice one from erdinger, not their best, but a clever new twist (for me at least) on a classic style.

330 ml bottle into weizen glass, best before 5/2014. Pours hazy bright golden amber color with a 2-3 finger dense and rocky head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass, with plenty of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, orange, pear, apple, clove, pepper, light banana, wheat, bread, floral, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with solid complexity and balance of malt and fruity/spicy yeast notes; with decent strength. Taste of lemon, orange, pear, apple, wheat, toast, bread, honey, light banana, light clove, floral, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of citrus, light fruits, wheat, toast, honey, floral, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and solid complexity of malt and yeast ester flavors; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a pretty good hefeweizen. Solid complexity, balance, and robustness of flavors; and very smooth to drink. An enjoyable offering.

A non-Marzen Oktoberfest. I was unaware hat this was a Hefe when I first poured it. Hazy yellow hue witha thick, white head. Smelled like a Hefe but it also had some traditional Oktoberfest aromas, too. The overall aroma was much too soft, however. Very mellow was the flavor as well. Not very spicy or phenolic, more plain and simple. Not much like a Marzen here, it didn't bind the style together as well as the nose did. It was light and easy. Peppy carbonation. I was not a fan of this beer. Shame on me for expecting something different. -Bottle offering-

Pours like a wheat beer. Turbid , unfiltered, yellow straw with sunshine highlights. Fat head of white foam that lasts and leaves lace. Nose is a faint bit of ripe banana that is perfectly ripe and not over ripe. Although faint it has a depth within the beer. There is the crisp scent of wheat with it's natural sweetness. There is scent like bread crusts but light colored bread and not the usual dark bread you might find in the traditional oktoberfest. Taste is refreshing. A bit of soft banana, ripe but not dominating the palate. A touch of crisp and dry wheat malt with that light touch of bread crust. There is the lightest touch of caramel I can say I have ever observed in a beer and it really brings this beer together. It comes forward a bit on the nose as the beer warms and is like a pretty little surprise to the palate. The flavors are all light enough and balanced enough so that you can taste them all. The body is creamy and smooth, crisp and well carbonated. Finishes dry and a bit perky with the faintest amount of bitterness and leaves that bread to linger with that light caramel. I liked it more and more as I drank.

Really unique. I would say that this beer brought key elements of both styles together gracefully and with a light touch.

This is the best beer I have ever drink. The taste after-flavour is awesome, it smells like a real beer. This is the real thing, the flavour is the best part.. at first swig I automatially realized, this is the best taste and mouhfeel I've ever had. Drink it when not eating. Had just a bad experience, I bought some on a promotion beacause of expiration date, and altought it was still on a valid date the taste was completely different, so make sure it is bottled recently before buying.

09/25/13 On tap. Listed as a weizen. More body than I expected. Nice balance of dry and refreshing. Although Oktoberfest is a harbinger of colder days, this is a great transitional brew.
