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.

Pours hazy and golden with a very wide white foam head. Smell is right for the style, banana, cloves, wheat, yeast, the works. Almost no hops. Taste is balanced and right for the style again, low bitterness, refreshing and a little bit spicy. Took me a while to diferenciate this from the traditional hefe, but as it gained temperature more spices appeared and flavor changed. Nice beer.

Pours a pale yellow with a nice, thick foam head. Taste has a pleasant spiciness with little bitter aftertaste. Easy to drink, yet forgettable once finished. Not a bad beer overall.

Pours a murky straw color with a moderate head of white foam. Aroma smells of bread with some caramel and grassy, noble hops.

The taste is lemony and slightly chalky, with hints of bubblegum--like no Oktoberfest I've ever had. There's also a spiciness akin to white pepper and/or allspice that doesn't quite fit. Medium body and high carbonation make for a lively, velvety mouthfeel.

Overall, this is a hefeweizen, which isn't exactly what the label would lead one to believe. As far as hefeweizen's go, this one is less than sophisticated.
