Pours a golden slightly cloudy color. Not as cloudy as other hefe's I have had. Aroma is nice, wheaty and slightly malty. Taste is ok with a little bite up front, some wheat and malt in the middle and a slightly bitter and dry finish. I've had better. Probably be just as happy with a Michelob Light, sorry!!

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.

A – Light golden colour with some haze and a huge head.
S – The smell is mild and fruity with a slight hint of earth or sand. Some citrus and banana.
T – Follows the nose but this one is very mild and the flavours are hard to detect.
MF – It is a bubbling beer so it tingles on the tongue with carbon effervescence
O – Little to no after taste this one leaves you very quickly very drinkable but in this case that does not mean very enjoyable.

I'm editing or updating my review here as I previously had this one bottled and from a pint glass.
I now have had this from a Stein at Oktoberfest and the taste was very different.
This time around the smell of peach and apricot was very noticeable on top of the sand and banana from before. There was also some great sour apple smells to boot. The colour was more hazy, straw like even with a huge head of tight foam and lashings of lace.
The taste was also deeper and more pronounced. There was good peach sweetness and banana flavour with a deep sour undercurrent running through the whole experience. I previously gave this a 3 but it now I have to give it more as it clearly deserved it!!
