nice change of pace here in bosnia. pours less cloudy that i expected, darker golden color with a lacey head pure white. smells like yeast and fruit, lemons and orange zest. flavor is hearty for a wheat brew, with less of the popping fruity characteristics i am accustomed to in this style. yeast is a little bit floral, delicate and nice.plenty of body too, there is a lemon wedge on the rim, but i dont need it. feel is heavier for a hefe, filling a little, but the carbonation is appropriate and the finish is nice and slow, a little sweet. this was a great beer to have with sushi, and probably other fish dishes as well.

It's a wheat beer, it's cloudy, light golden in color, with a traditional huge white head which dissipates very slowly.

Smells of a hint of lemon citrus, a hint of banana, yeast, and a nice wheat bread.

Taste is mellow, light bready sweetness, with a bit of a lemony finish.

Very smooth and easy to drink, light and airy, without being fizzy.

It's not a Wiehanstephaner, but it's a fine wheat beer from the old world, and the price is right.

DOA

Erdinger Weissbier is pale orange in colour. When poured in a glass it has a nice white head. While the smell of malt and hops is present, you can also get a small hint of orange and apple. It's a little strong for my liking but very clean with fine acidity. Definitely easy to have another!

A - Pours a murky yellow blonde with a glorious three finger soapy head and sticky lacing.

S - Wheat, dried banana chips, yeast and salt.

T - Clean and sweet, banana, wheat, grain and spice.

M - Moderate to high carbonation, body a little light as I like a full bodied hefe myself.

O - Perfectly good German hefe but why would you get this when Weihenstephan is so widely available and cheap.
