Not an over the top hefe, it has the usual bananas and yeast in the flavor, but is pretty easy to drink as well.

Everything you could ask for in a weißbier. Citrus and wheat balanced nicely.

Beautiful orange color with a head that never dissipates. Excellent wheat and citrus smell. Taste is refreshing, I'm not sure what the bad scores are about on here. Yeah, it's a bit wheatier than it could be but a good tasting hefe.

Not a bad Hefeweizen by any means, but It didn't stand out much to me in the line-up of new beers I've tried recently. Still, I would gladly drink one any day.

I don't understand giving this anything but A grade.
The BA score shows 80, does that mean B- grade beer?
The Bros give it a 74,.. does that mean C grade beer?
Ya'll are nuts, it's A grade,… let's give it a 95,… how would I improve it to 100,… I wouldn't,.. it's perfectly all well as far as my feel and sensibility, according to my body.
It's a nice fresh, medium, balanced, very pleasant beer,...it's excellent,… nice n balanced,… I love it.

Slightly hazy orange color with a thin thick head with good retention.
Light aroma of banana, oranges and some cloves.
Sweet flavor with notes of oranges, yeast, some banana and distant cloves. Mild tartness over sweetened by its malt.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
Refreshing while cold straight forward Weiss. I sure would like to see more character and lower sweetness levels. I found their other offerings better.

BBD 6/15. Pours a cloudy golden with just a touch of amber. World class head volume, retention and lacing.

Light nose of banana, clove and yeast.

Light medium body that has a smooth texture. Perfect carbonation with a nice effervescent burst from the middle on.

Like the nose, the flavor profile is weak, but improves considerably as it warms. The key to this beer is consume it near room temperature. It also lacks complexity when cold, but blossoms as it warms and is nicely balanced. Clove is the strongest component, while banana stays in the background. The middle has a touch of bitterness. No sweetness really ever emerges and the finish is a bit dry and tart.

Cloudy yellow colour with loose foam head that lasted all but a few seconds. Unappealing visually. Smells improved things, nice, clean, orange. Taste is a mixed bag. Lemon, jelly sweets, smooth. Feel unfortunately short lived. It's fine but I'm not going to put it in my shopping basket for a while.

I dont understand the lower ratings... this is an unbelievably good brew imho.... it is smoothe... flavorful... and a pretty pour.... it is a bit pricey and has somewhat of a "light" beer head.... but it is super tasty for backyard sitting

Probably my favourite beer, certainly of the wheat variety anyway. Rich, tasty and always satisfying...Perhaps there are more interesting, niche varieties out there (in Germany, at least) but this is a solid winner !

L:
-Pours cloudy yellow-golden with a big fluffy eggshell-colooured head
-Medium head retension for a Hef
-very high carbonation visible
S:
-very grassy and spicy (Coriander more than clove)
-bananas and honey
T:
Follows the nose plus bubble gum a reduced Banana flavour with a slight bitter grassy finish
F:
light-medium body with medium-high carbonation
O:
Erdinger is not your typical Hefeweizen.Its very much noble hop forward instead of Banana-clove forward.
Generally though,i find it doesnt quite match good hefeweizens esp. in terms of flavour.

Some beers are just meant to be draft. This is one. A true on the patio at a pub beer. This is a classic some are compared to.
