Every sip leaves you wanting more – our ERDINGER Weissbier with fine yeast is the crowning glory of traditional Bavarian brewing skills.

The strength of this classic wheat beer lies in the harmonious balance it achieves between the various aromas. Gently spicy wheat and yeast aromas blend with mildly bitter hops. The invigorating carbon dioxide ensures its typical liveliness. A premium beer whose full-bodied yet elegant character leaves a lasting impression of ultimate Bavarian enjoyment. A truly unique wheat beer!

ERDINGER Weissbräu allows its top-fermenting specialty to mature in the bottle in the traditional manner, just like champagne. This wheat beer from Erding offers more than just sparkling refreshment – it gives a true taste of Bavaria.

500ml bottle, 5,3abv, poured in a Weissenglass at around 6c.
Hazy yellow coour, highly carbinated, 4 finger white head, slowly dissolving.
Biscuity arome with a malty bittermess
Mouthfeel, a bit thin.
Taste is a bit lager like, bitter hoppiness, little bit or marmelade in there. Not much sweetness.
A bit square.

One of the first German beer I ever tried, along side Franzikaner iirc, this definitely stronger and 'maltier(?)' than the former. Price wise, it'a more pricey than your usual beer in Malaysia. Is the price difference justifiable? Personal preference I'd say, but definitely the brew quality and the overall experience is better.

16.9 oz can exp date 12/14/23 into a tall Weiss glass.
L: Pours lightly hazed dark gold with a 1" creamy & rocky white head, amazing steady carbo bubbles, excellent head retention, scattered lacing.
S: Bready, hay, lightly fruity, a hint of dough.
T: Gentle fruits, a light suggestion of banana, light citrus, very lightly sweet malts, grains in the finish. Minimal aftertaste.
F: Brisk and slightly ploofy medium bodied feel with a plump middle and a crisp med-fast lightly drying finish.
O: A very refreshing and great tasting Weissbier with much less banana taste than many others. It remains brisk and is simple and quaffable. It is very good in its style.

On tap at Blackback Pub in Waterbury, VT.

This one pours a slightly hazy golden orange color, with a small fluffy head, and lots of lacing.

This smells citrusy, with banana, clove, and a nice sweet breadiness.

This is pretty emblematic of this classic style. It’s slightly floral and citrusy, with a nice wheaty and softly bready malt backbone. There’s just the lightest hint of clove and banana – it doesn’t go overboard like some amateur attempts at this style.

This is creamy, and very drinkable, with a nice smooth and full finish.

I was honestly surprised that it’s taken me this long to try this classic.

I have been drinking Erdinger for close to twenty years and I haven't reviewed it? What gives? No notes are necessary. Please refer to the score. This is one of my old standbys.
