3.93/5  rDev +9.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 0.5l bottle purchased and consumed in Berlin, Germany. Freshness date. "Die Prickelnde Frische" = "No Yeast For You" on the label, which is important to note.

Appearance: Poured into a proper Erdinger Weisbbier glass, it produced a crystal clear golden beer with a thick white foam head -- awesome stick and stay!

Smell: Clean overall, with light aromas of steel and grain. Mention of spice.

Taste: An even, medium body. Soft malt flavours and sweetness cradle a subdued fruity character. Very faint banana. Thin floral hop flavour with a citrus edge and touch of spice. Mineral character throughout the beer. Finish fades into a palatable dryness.

Notes: A helluva beer, and spot on for the style. A clean, clear, tasty and very drinkable wheat beer. Exactly what it should be.

3.61/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

A - Pale yellow colouring, similar to a lager.

S - Grass like sweet fragrance.

T - Sweet, decent amount of wheat coming through on it.

M - Fizzy, maybe a little harsh on the tongue.

O - A decent beer in the Erdinger range but not one of the best. Drinkable, enjoyable but I find it somewhat uninteresting.

3.78/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Best by March 2014

Pours a golden straw color with a slight haze to it, good sized white head, fades at a moderate pace with hardly any lacing.

Smell has a sweet malt aroma, slightly grassy notes.

Taste starts out with a sweet malt flavor with hints of banana fruitiness, a decent grassy like bitterness follows, carbonation is on the high side but helps lend a dry finish necessary for this beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

500ml Bottle from Tesco (£2.19):
Clear amber to gold colour with a thumb sized head that is full of fairly large, rough looking bubbles that settle to a thing lacing on the top of the beer that starts to turn patchy.

Light with some wheat and faint grassy hops, almost coming across as a pale lager in places as apposed to a wheat beer. This soon passes with some citrus and light banana followed by some background malts and bread.

Wheat, malts and banana start things off, with the latter coming through stronger than it did in the nose. There is some cloves, a light citrus taste and touches of bread too, plus some background fruits.

Lively with a fairly good balance and a medium body with a very slightly sticky mouthfeel. The beer was quite an easy one to drink although it did come across as a little bland in places.

Quite a strange beer initially and started almost like a pale lager with light malts and very faint grassy hops before the kristalweizen in it started to shine through. Not a bad effort overall but there are certainly better, and more readily available, Erdinger beers out there to be had.
