Bottle pour. Pours cloudy with a big two finger head. Aroma is classic German Hefewiezen, but kind of generic. The taste was the same. There's a lot in the style that are much better than this.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured 0.5l bottle into a Weizen glass. ABV 5.3%

Appearance: Pale goleden to light amber color. Mild hazy. Tall and foamy white head, with good retention and good lacing. Very high carbonation visible.

Smell: Yeast, moderate banana aroma.

Taste: Wheat, malt, gentle bitterness from hops, banana notes in traces coming through from the background, but without any of the traditional clove or bubblegum flavors.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, light-to-medium bodied, good carbonation in the mouth.

Overall: Refreshing, pleasant and thirst quenching, but not much of a taste. Decent enough, but pretty average for the style.

The quintessential German beer in m opinion, and the bar to which I compare all others. There are better Hefeweizens, there are worse, but on a hot summer day Erdinger is one of my favorites. I love the plain wheat malt taste and texture, and the hops and yeast flavors are delightfully clean and fresh. A mass-produced beer that still tastes like a beer.

A good beer to be enjoyed on a hot summer day. Or at the Oktoberfest! Cheers
