look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a good head that holds well. With some lacing. Colour is cloudy cold pale amber
Smell - not much really.
Mild but pleasant 'weizen' taste, with loads of fine carbonation combined with a creamy mouthfeel. All mild: Fruity Bannana Bubblegum.
Afterwards I feel a bit dissatisfied though...

The 500ml bottle I got says "In der Flasche gereift" (Bottle conditioned).

500 ml bottle into signature weizen glass, best before 3/2013. Pours hazy golden amber color with a nice 2-3 finger fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of orange zest, banana, pepper, clove, apricot, wheat, earth, and yeast spiciness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance. Taste of banana, pear, wheat, pepper, clove, earth, bread, and yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of wheat, pepper, pear, banana, clove, earth, and yeast spices on the finish for a short bit. Flavors are well balanced with decent complexity; a bit on the watery side, but good. High carbonation and light-medium body; with a lightly creamy and very crisp and prickly mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a good Hefeweizen. A bit watery, but the flavors are nicely balanced; and this is extremely easy and refreshing to drink. I did enjoy it.

On-tap served in an Erdinger weizen glass at The Penalty Spot, Bangkok.

It comes with a hazy body and a pale yellow color. The white head crowns thickly before subsiding with decent retention and leaving some patch of lacing.

Ester, banana, citrus, clove spice and bready malt.

Subtle and rather monotonous ester, only zesty citrus appears forefront along with decent clove spice and ghost-like hop bitterness. Malt is also there with a bready touch.

Medium-bodied, smooth mouthfeel from fine carbonation, finish is dry.

Fresh and refreshing without doubt with good thirst quenching ability, high drinkable beer.

Poured from bottle into a sample glass.

Appearance: Cloudy yellowish color with a decent size white head.

Smell: Wheat, maybe some hints of banana, not really a strong smell.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Medium to light bodied and smooth. Taste was average, what you would expect from a mid range hefenweizen.

Overall: Not a bad beer, but nothing spectacular. I guess I would have it again, it is easy to drink.
