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.
