Best by March 2014

Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color with a huge white bubbly head, fades at a decent rate but takes awhile because of the amount, oddly no lacing whatsoever though.

Smell has a bit of a weird yeasty funk to it, slight hint of grassiness and clove.

Taste is definitely heavy handed on the yeast front with a bit of an off flavor, reminds me of drinking an unfiltered wheat beer but that every sip is part of the dregs, clove adds some spiciness to the mix to help distract, carbonation is medium-high but closer to the medium range, finishes quite dry.

500ml bottle. Weizen glass. Bright brass color, foggy appearance. Close, sticky, lasting, white in color crown. Intense banana, fresh yeast & bread aromas. Crispy upfront, malty & biscuit flavors. Light to medium body. Moderate but lively carbonation. Unctuous mouthfeel. Bread, banana flavors, spiced hues & phenolic touch. Low bitterness & subtle spicy notes. Long sweet finish & fruity aftertaste. Delicious & refreshing!!

A - Deep orange colour with a small bit of lacing on top.

S - Wheat, bread and a hint of cloves.

T - A more intense white beer. Strong, yeasty with clove flavour coming through but balanced with sweetness.

M - Pretty watery with a slight fizz. Decent but nothing special here.

O - More interesting that the normal Erdinger and most White beers out there. A great beer but perhaps not reaching the same heights as other beers ive tried.

A- Great looking straw colored beer with long lasting off white head.
S- Smells distinctly of brewing spices; coriander?
T- Sweet, even for a Weizen; strong, but pleasant, slightly citrusy.
M- A bit harsh and acidic, relatively high carbonation on the tongue.
O- Decent, sessionable beer with a very pleasant taste that breaks the traditional weizen mold.

On-tap at a local Oktoberfest celebration. Served in an Erdinger plastic pint glass.

A- foamy, tan head starts at 1-1/2 fingers, has awesome retention, and leaves great stick. Hazy orange body.

S- lemon, bananas, clove. Mostly lemon.

T- tons of banana, some lemon, lighter cloves. Robust.

M- creamy. Light carbonation.

O- very flavorful, so much so I was wondering if it was an amped-up/imperial version at points. Tons of banana. I would have drank this all afternoon given the chance. Great for the Fest in unusually warm, fall weather. Refreshing.
