3.61/5 rDev +0.8%
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.

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.

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.

From an Erdinger five bottle gift set which came with the glass I used to drink this. Not 100% sure this is the same beer others have reviewed here, the silver-colored label reads "Weizen/Kristall" all in large script lettering on two lines, while the small middle strip label is blue and reads "Prickelnd Frischer/Weissbiergenuss." The beer itself was a darker gold than other reviews have noted.
Poured into an Erdinger Weissbier glass from the 16.9 oz. bottle.
a: Deep clear gold with a tall white head which dissipated slowly to thin surface foam and spotty lacing.
t: Wheat malt well balanced. Went well with oven baked chicken dinner.
m: Medium, more body than most weissbiers, perhaps from Crystal malting if that's what "Kristall" refers to rather than simply the clarity.
o: Exceptional and enjoyable to the end.
