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.

Scent is sweet bready. Pours very pale ,slightly hazy, yellow with very full and thick white head. Head lasts well and laces the glass in fine drapery to the bottom! Taste is crisp, honey lemon and biscuits. Very fine carbonation, no bitterness at all! Highly enjoyable.
