12 oz bottle thanks Thorpe. Poured from a bottle to a glass, served at room temperature. Thanks Thorpe.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a retentive white head. Sweet, yeasty nose of banana and spice. Subtle and estery flavor, light yeast and wheat. Medium body, light carbonation. Fairly unremarkable.

Appearance: Big head, sticks around with a hazy golden body.
Aroma: Fruity phenols but they're not distinguishable as a particular fruit.
Taste: bready with alcohol and toast.
Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated, spicy.

Paired with a burritos at Cafe 4060 (meters above sea level) in Potosi, Bolivia. Nicely balanced the spiciness and was generally refreshing. I was a bit surprised to notice higher levels of alcohol in it.

Erdinger is horribly underrated on this site; I know its not the strongest, nor the most flavourful weissbier, but it is utterly delicious. One of the easiest drinking beers I've ever tasted. A great introductory beer for those unacquainted with weissbier. Erdinger is my favourite beer hands down and a beer a recommend to weizen aficionados and newcomers alike.

On tap at Tolkein's House in Zagreb.

It arrived in a Erdinger glass which is one of the nicest I've seen.The beer has a thick fluffy white head sitting atop a beaut of a hazy golden beer. Some drippy lace.

Regular banana and clove aroma with some sweetness. Hard to get much in a smoky bar.

Fruity flavor of light banana and orange. The flavor isn't too big on this. Decent enough.

This was smooth as butter with a fairly light body and prickly carbonation.

Good Weiss. Got it because it was on draft in a land of wack beer. It did it's job in relieving my beer thirst. Doubt I'll give it another go in the states though.
