Erdinger Weissbier is one of the Bavaria's weakest weissbiers. The appearance isn't as cloudy as other weissbiers and you can actually see through the beer which is a big strike in weissbier. The upfront taste is heavy with fruit & clove which aren't as strong as other weissbiers and the backend taste finishes a touch dry and bitter. Definitely leans more towards the bitter side and at times hints at a pilsner flavor. I rarely if ever drink or buy this. And now that Erdinger has come out with the superior Urweisse which is much better than the normal Weisse, there's really no reason to drink this anymore.

Served cool from 500ml bottle into Weiss bier glass.

A) First thing to notice is the massive white bubbly head. Hazy urine-straw colour. Looks like a good Weiss bier.

S) Weaker than some of the other examples of the style, but light clove notes are evident.

T) Very weak flavour for a weisse. Slightly sweet, giving the impression that the wort is not fully fermented. The essential clove / banana flavour characteristic of the style is barely present.

M) Refreshing and quite fizzy. No nasty aftertastes.

O) Poor example of the style; try Paulaner, Schneider Weisse, Weihenstephaner or Ayinger instead.
