Erdinger Champ has a thin, off-white, fizzy head, a hazy, yellow-orange appearance, which hazes up even more when the bottom of the bottle is swished and poured in, lots of bubble streams and clinging bubbles, and pretty much no lacing left behind. The aroma is sweet and bready. The flavor is of sweetness, yeasty bread, a hint of banana, a hint of coriander, and some tap water. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Erdinger Champ finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and delicious.

Slightly hazy golden color with a thick head with medium retention relatively to the style.
Lighter aroma for the style, more spicy yeast than banana
Wheaty and biscuit flavor with hints or lemon, banana and spicy yeast.
Light to medium body with a low to medium carbonation.
This actually came short of my expectations; it is not up to par to other Erdinger beers. But you have to consider it is a different proposal, maybe to attract regular drinkers of mass beers to craft beer world. And this deserves some credit. So rating it more against mass beers than its style.

A: The beer is slightly hazy pale yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured into a weizen glass with a half finger high bright white head that died down, consistently leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of wheat and hints of banana-like yeast are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the yeast is a little more prominent but tastes more like yeast instead of bananas.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but isn't as flavorful and refreshing compared to some of the other top beers in the style.
