Poured from fridge temp. Pours a nice golden color with good carbonation. Nose is actually quite nice. Hints of wheat and citrus. The taste is not the best. It surprisingly didn't follow the nose, and almost seems a bit like cough syrup. Not my favorite of this style at all. Feel is OK.

L: pours a cloudy golden color, creamy white top of head that disolves slowly.

A: weak aroma of bread,banana,yeast and spices.

T&F: Follows the nose inn many aspects, sweet banana with sightly bready inn the back. Inn the middle it gets more dry with a slight hint off spices. Not the longest aftertaste on this one , but the mouthfeel are both crisp,creamy and refreshing and it gets down quite easy. The high carbonation suits this beer pretty good for the mouthfeel.

O: An easydriking and good enough hefeweizen. But gets a little to ordinary and standard compared to a lot of other german hefeweizen.

Pours an evenly hazy glowing gold with three fingers and more of creamy beige puff. Takes a while to settle, good retention, barely any lacing. The aroma is spiced bread with some banana behind. The flavor is standard hefeweizen follows the nose. The whole beer is a unified experience. Soft, drinkable, well-balanced, liquid bread substantiveness. Generally a great all-around beer. I prefer others to this one but it is still a great example of a wheat beer. Worth a try.

So lets try this “true classic of Bavarian wheat beer culture”, as stated on their own website!

They say that it really should be drank from a Weizen glass for proper usage, but hell I can only go on what I have…….a normal glass stein, but its good enough for me.

Also, I must say I do love the logo of the company. Really colourful with the wheat symbol surrounded by striking red and blue colours spelling out the name of Erdinger Weissbier.

On pour there is a good bit of carbonation, noisy bubbles resulting in a pretty big decent sized frothy head. Vibrant and alive!
A very pale golden colour.

Turns a bit hazy looking after a while.

Head reduces in size but retains a little bit

Got a lot in the bottle, a lot of bang for the buck!

Faint smell, of yeast, not much to smell, uninspiring

On taste, got a really refreshing nice big mouthful, creamy and smooth. A nice start

Big nice mouthfuls, but no real distinct tastes, creamy, but not bad

Smooth and crisp enough to saviour, and nice for a weissbier. Nice, I liked it

Wouldn’t say there is a whole lot of taste.

Can’t really feel the alcohol
Tastes of light malt. Light malt, some fruits and of course the wheat

Liked it a lot, nice, very easy to drink, not much taste, but filling, and quite smooth. Overall this isn’t a bad beer, but perhaps a bit boring for the style and not enough strong standout flavours to satisfy the Weissbier fans………
