A great beer. I recently met through referral from a friend. Here in Brazil leaves an average of $ 9. A little expensive but worth the investment. Highly refreshing, especially with the weather here in Brasilia (Brazil), around 30 º. Great color and amber foam that does not hold much to the cup and a very smooth taste.

4.3/5  rDev +12.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance
Big, tall head sits atop a cloudy and bright yellow body

Smell
Smells like a typical hefe of banana, lemon, and spices

Taste & Mouthfeel
Smell is deceptive as the flavors are strong on honey and malt with very little-to-no banana; has that awesome soft texture from the wheat; full body, lots of carbonation

Overall
Really enjoyed this one as it had an overriding honey-like quality with a lacking banana flavor that gave it a unique characteristic for a hefeweizen. It's a bit too sweet to make it a session beer, but certainly not too sweet to enjoy a whole bottle.

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

-pours a modest head that quickly recedes
-the smell and taste of this hefe are perfect
-modest hop aroma leaves room for the bready/yeasty/banana aroma to come through
-I get a little bit of spice in the aroma as well
-tastes just like a Bavarian Hefeweizen should: banana/clove in good balance, absolutely no undesirable esters, very clean finish that makes me want to never stop drinking this beer
-I'm sure there are some folks that won't like this beer because it comes from a macro, but I think it may be one of the best hefeweizens available

Bought in a five beer gift pack with an Erdinger weissbier vase.

Poured from the 16.9 oz. bottle into an Innis & Gunn flute.

a: Translucent deep gold, formed an enormous and stubborn white head.

s: Slight fruit note..

t: Belgian yeast fruit flavor. Blindfolded, I would think it was an exceptionally good Belgian wheat beer.

m: Light to medium with good body.

o: Very refreshing, excellent Belgian-like flavor with none of the sourness such can impart. Extremely sessionable! I would definitely buy this again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A- beautiful thick golden brown body. persistant and big off white head. Merrangue like head... "drink me"

S- Alcohol and floral. Almost buttery with sweet bread. Big malt characteristic, and a hint of bananna and vanilla.

T- Creamy buttery. Floral hop finish. Esthery tones in middle. Malty, creamy and toasty. Leafy and flowery. Banana with some spiciness. Vanilla and bread. And honey. Taste's great, just could be more stand out-ish.

M- Very light carbonation leaves a creamy and milky feel.

D- The size of the bottle leaves me full afterwards. Couldn't be downed very fast.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

500ml bottle bought from GapWines, Belfast...

Poured a hazy light golden yellow colour... White head poured typically big thick and foamy then faded slowly to nice thick layer ... lots of carbonation rises to the surface... decent amount of thick sticky lacing...

Aroma - Nice clove spiciness, light vanilla notes, noticeable wheat, quite bready, very little malts, light fruitiness (banana and lemon), quite peppery...

Taste - Light biscuity malts, fairly strong clove, definite breadiness, quite creamy, good fruitiness (lemon, pear and sweet banana), salty, quite floral - hints of lily, honey grassy and peppery hints...

Feel - Very smooth and creamy with just a little bite underneath... light body... Extremely refreshing and drinkable...

Overall - An excellent German hefe and the best Erdinger brew i've had...

Because Erdinger Urweiss isn't sold in the US and I was at a bar in São Paulo with an imported craft selection, I went for this. From a 500ml bottle, on to the beer:

The waiter poured this oen well in the Erdinger Wiessbrau glass that was provided for this beer. Yellow orange colored beer, cloudy, a beauty of a fluffy white head on top with very good retention. The stringy lacing it leaves is icing on the cake. Lemon and banana are the flavors I smell out of this beer. Maybe a little nutmeg as well.

This is a good tasting hefeweizen. Cinnamon banana is the first thing to hit my mind. Banana bread notes also hit me. Faint clove rounds it all up. The chalky mouthfeel left from the wiessbier is appetizing, and is a carrot to have me drink more of this beer.

Consdiering I'm not a fan of the regular hefeweizen, I was pleasantly surprised by Urweiss. I think Erdinger should ditch the hefe and make this their flagship.

Best by: 01-2013
Served in a tapered weizen mug.

Huge pillowy head, lasting head retention that never breaks on the surface. Murky saturated orange color, fairly opaque once the yeast is swirled in.

Light banana and orange creamsicle aromas that carry into the flavor. Lightly wheaty on the back end, slightly dry in the finish and not too sweet. Clean and flavorful. Unfiltered and yeasty. Medium bodied and pretty quenching in the summer heat, drinkability is high. Better than the standard Erdinger Weizen from what I remember.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Cloudy orange colour with a large, three fingers sized head that is white & foamy in texture. Retention is good as it slowly reduces to about a fingers width.

A good mix of wheat, a little banana, clove & a faint hint of grainy alcohol but nothing off-putting. There is some citrus & vanilla in the background that round off this rather complex smelling beer quite nicely.

The taste has stronger citrus notes to it & a nice amount of wheat, banana & a nice bit of spice as well. Not quite as pleasant as the smell in my opinion but still a great beer to drink.

Medium bodied with high carbonation without seeming overly gassy. The drink is smooth & low on bitter with a good overall feel to it.

A great hefeweizen here & one of the nicest beers I have tried in a while. Very drinkable with a wonderful taste & an even better aroma. Not the most exciting example of the style but a solid & very enjoyable beer.
