This beer pours a bit of a darker colour than the standard Erdinger. The smell immediately lets you know that this effort from Erdinger is a different beast altogether. Very spicy and clove like. Tastes just how it smells. Spicy, strong clove again. Really nice. Mouthfeel reminds me of Weihenstephaner although in fact I think this has a little more going on taste wise.

Tonight this hit the spot perfectly, I definitely recommend it.

Pours a hazy orange that turns to a red in thicker spots of Erdinger glass. Yeast chunks in it, but hoping no issues on taste. Ben there before on Weiss. Typical creamy white head. Banana bread and citrus fruit smell. Shared than other Weiss. Definite clove. Taste is wonderful. Banana orange with malty yeast finish. A carbonic burst assists taste and texture. Smooth refreshing finish. Another great German beer makes me want to go!!

A great beer. I recently met through referral from a friend. Here in Brazil leaves an average of $ 9. A little expensive but worth the investment. Highly refreshing, especially with the weather here in Brasilia (Brazil), around 30 º. Great color and amber foam that does not hold much to the cup and a very smooth taste.

Appearance
Big, tall head sits atop a cloudy and bright yellow body

Smell
Smells like a typical hefe of banana, lemon, and spices

Taste & Mouthfeel
Smell is deceptive as the flavors are strong on honey and malt with very little-to-no banana; has that awesome soft texture from the wheat; full body, lots of carbonation

Overall
Really enjoyed this one as it had an overriding honey-like quality with a lacking banana flavor that gave it a unique characteristic for a hefeweizen. It's a bit too sweet to make it a session beer, but certainly not too sweet to enjoy a whole bottle.

-pours a modest head that quickly recedes
-the smell and taste of this hefe are perfect
-modest hop aroma leaves room for the bready/yeasty/banana aroma to come through
-I get a little bit of spice in the aroma as well
-tastes just like a Bavarian Hefeweizen should: banana/clove in good balance, absolutely no undesirable esters, very clean finish that makes me want to never stop drinking this beer
-I'm sure there are some folks that won't like this beer because it comes from a macro, but I think it may be one of the best hefeweizens available
