Serving Type: 500 mL Bottle

A- Pours a hazy (unfiltered, I assume) golden straw colour that is topped by a 2 1/2 finger lumpy white head. What a great looking beer. Typical of a well made Weissbier.

S- The aroma of this beer is quite grassy (maybe thats the wheat talking) with a slight citrus edge. Not extremely exciting but quite pleasing nonetheless. This Weissbier has the type of aroma that invites you to take a big gulp.

T- Much like the smell, the taste of this beer is dominated by grassy notes that is finished with a slight citrus note (perhaps lemon). Not complex at all but extremely refreshing.

M- Medium carbonation. Body is medium. Great match for this beer. Not thin like water and no aggressive carbonation here.

O- Overall, Erdinger Weissbier is a fine example of the style. As Erdinger states on the bottle, this is the "worlds most popular wheat beer" and I can certainly understand why. Erdinger Weissbier is a great looking beer, it smells great, has a pleasant taste, and is extremely easy to drink. I recommend this beer to everyone.

Hazy straw color with an aggressive white frothy head.

Smells lemony, grassy, and musty.

Lemon peel, wheat, grass, ever so light clove.

Crisp and light, heavily carbonated.

An easy drinking, if not average hefe.

Enjoyed from the bottle in a pint glass, this solid hefe pours a hazy amber yellow with a moderate head with little retention and light clinging lacing. Nose of light banana, light clove, and sweet wheat malts. Flavors are lightly acidic wheat to the fore with banana and clove lightly coming in on the back with a lightly acidic aftertaste. Smooth creamy mouth feel and wet acidic aftertaste. Not the best of the Germans, but not bad and very sessionable.

Drank on tap in Berlin and took a few bottled ones home. Both were great, even though I'd still prefer the on-tap one (perhaps it's because of the great memories). All-round great Weissbier.
