look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Apple-y blonde color with a fluff of three fingers of head. Excellent head retention in the glass. Looks good.

Stale bread, wheat and crusts, hint of lemon, light banana, and crabapple. Lots of German musty qualities, exemplary of a not-so-fresh bottle. Label says she's good til June. Erdinger never knocks it out of park for me, anyway. Pedestrian kristalweizen nose.

Custardy yeast, wheat grain, lost citrus notes, and a mild banana-esque finish. Somewhat grassy with a spiciness, like white pepper, in the backend; mixing cream and burning carbonation, along the way. Not a whole lot going on. Tastes like a good base beer for a summer shandy.

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.

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.
