poured into a weizen glass a pale, cloudy, golden honey-colored beer. typical appearance with tiny streaming bubbles, high carbonation. giant, rocky white head with bubbles of all sizes. overall look, as typical as it may be for a hefeweizen, is very good. the smell, however, is a bit of a let down. there's really not a lot going on. it's a strain to pick up much of anything. it's like smelling a weissbier... from a distance. anyway, what i do get is certainly not bad. after a while, i concede that it does in fact have some of that great fruity/spicy, banana/clove smell we should expect from this style.
this is the first time i've tried erdinger weissbier, i have had the dunkel before. i wasn't going to let the low 80s score affect my review, as i've found so many beers with a "worth a try" rating to be quite good. in this case, when compared to some other german hefeweizens, i believe the score fits the beer well. it's not bad at all, the only fault i can find is that it's a little boring. nothing remarkable about the taste or the mouthfeel. but i must say, the flavor comes through a lot better with the taste than it did in the smell. i probably won't get this again, but i love this style, and it did a good enough job that i don't regret my purchase.

Picked this up in Atlantic Beach. Not really a fan of this style, but had to give it a try. It had a great golden look, but it didn't have a great taste to match. However, I believe this would make a great dinner beer. Especially for the bargain prices you get here
