On tap!

Lighter than every Oktoberfest beer Ive ever had. Its a dark straw/yellow color.

Aroma is pretty clean, some grain, hay, slight bubblegum.

Taste is where the magic is, incredibly crushable as well. The slightest bit of malt/sweetness coming through. Low enough where you could drink several of these.

Feel is great as, slightly thick but is light at the same time (dont ask me).

Served cool from 500ml bottle into weizen glass.

L) Palish yellow colour, hazy, fluffy white head but not as effervescent as many weisse biers when poured.

S) Sweetish, a bit of light citrus. Certainly different from the normal banana / bubblegum odour.

T) Very different from a normal German weizen, doesn't have the strong banana / ester flavour, more of a clean lager flavour. Doesn't taste of much to be honest, a bit of sweetish malt, no hop bitterness, but I actually like it, very clean flavour, very drinkable.

F) Very clean flavour, refreshing and nicely fizzy. So drinkable.

O) I'm not a big Erdinger fan, but I like this one. Would love to sit in a bier garden on a warm day in Munich with one of these.

From Hipercor. In Teku glass. Shared with JJ. High drinkability. Taste fine but nothing special. Foam dissipates quickly

On tap, here in Serbia.
A - White to yellow, almost as Wit. Thin white foam, stays all the way. Unclear hefe.
S - Citrus mostly, orange.
T/M - Refreshing, citrus, cloves and banana in it. Creamy, low carbonation and bitterness.

O - Very good must admit.
