Poured into a chalice. $3.79 for 16.9 oz. Best before Aug 2014.
A heavier hefe. Can you have too much clove in the aroma? 3.75
A – Pours a cloudy pale orange with a three-finger off-white dense head. Good carbonation. Decent lacing. 3.75
S – Wheaty, citrusy, banana and big cloves. 4.25
T – Wheat bread, slightly peppery, some citrus, ever so slightly tart, more malty than most hefes. 3.75
MF – A little sharp, medium-dry, medium bodied. 3.5

A- Great looking straw colored beer with long lasting off white head.
S- Smells distinctly of brewing spices; coriander?
T- Sweet, even for a Weizen; strong, but pleasant, slightly citrusy.
M- A bit harsh and acidic, relatively high carbonation on the tongue.
O- Decent, sessionable beer with a very pleasant taste that breaks the traditional weizen mold.

On-tap at a local Oktoberfest celebration. Served in an Erdinger plastic pint glass.
A- foamy, tan head starts at 1-1/2 fingers, has awesome retention, and leaves great stick. Hazy orange body.
S- lemon, bananas, clove. Mostly lemon.
T- tons of banana, some lemon, lighter cloves. Robust.
M- creamy. Light carbonation.
O- very flavorful, so much so I was wondering if it was an amped-up/imperial version at points. Tons of banana. I would have drank this all afternoon given the chance. Great for the Fest in unusually warm, fall weather. Refreshing.

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.

A: A light yellow-y-orange and a bit opaque body with a thick big head.
S: Yeasty and lots of bananas.
T: Lots of wheat, banana and vanilla.
M: Good carbonation, smooth, light-bodied, highly drinkable.
O: Much better than the original Erdinger and actually, but it's not the best Erdinger I've had, that prize goes to Erdinger Dunkel. Possibly, it was the first Hefe I've had. Generally speaking, nice beer.

A- AMAZINGLY THICK HEAD. The first thing I noticed. I poured carefully, and yet the foam is incredible! 2 inched thick and going strong. The retention is unreal- I could have put a penny on the head and it would have held. Light amber color, slightly cloudy.
S- Mmmm Smells so tropical! This is another beer that reminds me of Trix cereal—wheat and bready yeast, along with the fruit on the nose.
T- Definitely German. Banana and yeast are the prominent tastes, along with clove and coriander. My first taste was as fruity as the nose suggested, but as I sipped on this beer I was struck by how well it fit the hefeweisen profile. Very true to style beer. Not my favorite, but very well made.
