500 ml bottle into weizen glass, best before 9/2013. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy deep reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, banana, caramel, toast, brown sugar, molasses, brown bread, wheat, clove, light chocolate, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, dark/bready malt, and light earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, banana, caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light chocolate, wheat, clove, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, banana, caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light chocolate, wheat, clove, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, dark/bready malt, and light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice weizenbock. All around good complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, dark/bready malt, and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

500ml bottle served in its own Weissen glass.

A: Pours a cloudy dark amber to brown color forming a medium and very bubbled tan head. Good retention but only few spotty lacings left in the glass

S: Sweet grains. Crystal and Munich malts. Toffee. Wheat. Sweet bread. Notes of flowery hops. Earthy yeasts

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of toffee, caramel malts, crystal malts, Munich malts. Wheat. Sweet brown bread. Very light hops bitterness as expected

M: Medium and creamy body. Medium carbonation. Sweet bread aftertaste

O: Good drinkability. The best Erdinger, for sure
