From Club del Gourmet of El Corte Ingles. In Paulaner glass. Watching Sucker Punch. The aroma is not bad, not one of the best for its style but neither one of the worst. However, it has a bit of rancid touch in the taste

Murky amber colour. Tastes malty with overtones of wholemeal banana bread and notes of honey. Zesty citrus nose. Overall quite a sweet beer, perhaps a little too creamy, with a sickly oily texture.

500ml bottle, one very much like the same now employed by Ayinger for its Ur-Weisse. Another brew available in the current Erdinger mixed pack.

This beer pours a hazy, medium copper amber hue, with a teeming, almost vessel-filling tower of puffy, frothy, and rather creamy off-white head, which leaves some wild cannonball splash lace around the glass as it slowly sinks out of sight.

It smells of banana cream, phenolic yeast, semi-sweet wheat malt, a further biscuity graininess, soft white pepper and clove spice, and subtle earthy, floral, and leafy hops. The taste is still fairly sweet, with the wet banana chip fruitiness predominating, over a blended wheat and grainy pale maltiness, a bit of shy earthy spice wafting about, kind of clammy yeast, and more well understated floral and leafy noble hops.

The carbonation is quite active in its swirling and testy, fizzy and frothy emanations, the body an adequate middleweight, and generally smooth, with a wee airy creaminess. It finishes off-dry, the banana character falling back, while the mixed malt sweetness puts 'er in cruise control.

Not a bad wheat beer, just a little simple and plain overall, the spice too restrained, and the sweetness a little pandering at times. Overall, easy to drink, and with a lower ABV than the norm, so patio-friendly enough, I suppose, if you have the chance to enjoy this one that way.

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.

There is Erdinger and then there is Erdinger.
Some are average - this is a special one, good colour towards orange and full of flavour
