look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Weizen glass.

Appearance: Cloudy straw yellow with thick, foamy white head and great lacing.

Smell: Clove, banana, wheat notes and more spicy hops than typical in the nose of a Hefe. Becomes muted after the initial pour.

Taste: Has the expected wheat base malt, but the also seem to be some more toasted and cherry notes as well, so maybe they did try to incorporate some light Marzen flavors. Light banana as well. Finish has both clove and noble hops.

Feel: A little fuller and creamier than a typical Hefe, probably due to the slightly elevated abv. Moderately high carbonation. Dry finish, but not quite as dry as the best of em.

Overall: Basically a bigger Hefe with hints of a Marzen. I like it. Still need to try the standard Erdinger, even though based on its lower scores and mass sales, it seems to the Budweiser of Hefeweizens.

Not your typical Marzen style Oktoberfest. Erdinger comes at you with a wheat beer and it's pretty good.

Cloudy body with a white head that is gone after a minute or so.

Smells of whole wheat bread, clove and slightly of banana.

This is going to sound weird, but there's a root beer thing going on in the mid palate. It's easy drinking, slighty spicy and summery. Probably not my pick for an Oktoberfest beer, but if we get another really hot August day this will work.

Clear light golden in color in the glass. Decent lacing and quite fizzy in the mouth. Lots of white foam. I don't taste any significant flavors of the usual Hefeweizen style, but it's a pleasant beery brew. Fairly malty, slightly fruity. Wouldn't be mistaken for an American wheat beer. Some perfume in the nose along with the malt aromas. Pleasantly sharp with a thin body but some substance from the malt.

Quite drinkable. More of a summer beer for chilling.
