A: Orangey straw. Nice big white head.

S: Caramel – very unexpected. Grainy too. Has a bit of sherbet and smells almost like a Tripel.

T: Grainy and cardboard like. Nice amount of bitterness and a bit of laquer/nail varnish from the alcohol – nice. Has some citrus, sherbet powder and orange squash to fight the papery graininess. There's some pleasant liquorice in there too. Rhubarb and citrus in the aftertaste.

O: Nice.

500ml bottle poured into weizen glass. best by 12/12.

a: hazy orange color with a three finger white head. dissipates to a half finger within a minute.

s: lots of light orange aromas and lemon. very pleasant; not too many spices going on. bit of a wheaty note as well but the citrus dominates.

t: a solid wheaty note to the beer, not too much banana/clove at all, which i would expect, and not very much of the orange/lemon aroma in the flavor. strong carbonation but a bit watery in flavor.

o: a competent hefeweizen. frankly, though, i can think of a half dozen other german breweries that make a widely available hefeweizen, all of which i would pick up before this.

Hazy, dirty, apricot blonde. Almost nothing in the way of the banana/clove yeast profile requisite for the style. Easy drinking, mild bitterness, with a thick wheatiness and hit of grass on the finish. Probably the worst of the hefeweizens produced by the big German breweries. It's a style that's hard to do well, and Erdinger has yet to figure it out, but at least they date their bottles.

Taste - Interesting. A very light banana crosses my palate but
otherwise unlike most other hefeweissens. Reminds me more of an American wheat.

Overall - Not bad. It wasn't what I was expecting though, and if I were to go off of hefeweissens I've had, I'd call it a pale imitation. On its own merits, I could see myself drinking it again.

Served into the Erdinger glass that commemorates its 125th anniversary (quite a cool weissglass).
A nice clear translucent yellow with topped with an incredible head that stays around for a little while.
The smell is quite a turn down, can't get nothing but what seems to be some faint fruity odor.
The tatse is just OK for what it is, a nice carbonation makes it quite drinkable.
Overall an under the mean Weissbier, nothing to do with the Erdinger Dunkelweiss an outstanding brew.

Had a bottle of Erdinger's Weiss beer whilst at the Atlantis Hotel on Palm Island outside of Dubai. The beer poured a clear yellow will big head that laced slightly. The smell was slight spice and floral. The taste was a good beer with tone of floral notes. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall a decent beer.

Hazy straw yellow to look at with a skinny skinny white head, you'd expect the foam to be much thicker given all the ubiquitous beading. Slightly carbonic to the taste there is a sort of pleasant sweetness which doesn't fully lead to the middle, end or aftertaste. Instaead there's a slightly inflated body and a hollowness on the tongue which tends to dominate. Pleasant but by no means demanding or delicious. A good introduction to weiss beers for the hardcore usual macro feeders.
