Best Octoberfest I've tried, and tried many. American attempts are weak at best. This is a clean, not over-the-top spicy Octoberfest that is enjoyable to bring in the fall. I can't understand how someone can even come close to getting notes of banana out of this, but taste buds differ I guess. Pricey, but worth every penny. Bottle or mug, both good. I like it cold.

I agree that this beer is both weak in aroma & flavor. If you want a good Oktoberfest Weissbier to drink then try the Paulaner version & pass on this one. Erdinger is one of the worst German breweries that I have sampled some beers from. Cheers! C

A tasty Oktoberfest beer. I personally love the art on the bottle. I think it has an excellent honey wheat aroma and flavor. Does not go well with food. I feel the flavor drowns out any food flavor. Great for a straight drinking. If your a fan of Oktoberfest beers, and tired of the same ones you've been drinking, I'd recommend this one as a good change up.

500ml bottle, traditional bottle-fermentation.
L: Light haze, golden colour, several streams of bubbles and three fingers of long-lasting, soapy head.
S: A little banana but not much and disappears quickly.
T: Some banana and cloves but subdued. Very sweet.
F: Smooth, rounded, some stickiness, light carbonation, dry finish.
O: A wheat beer with some of the characteristics of an oktoberfest beer. Not a great example of either style, however. Looks good and mouthfeel is very pleasant but smells and tastes extremely light for he style. Easy-drinking, nothing special.

The beer is on the sweet side which I like, but, alas, it has zero flavor, no aroma at all.
