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!!

Pours a big foamy head on a cloudy straw body.
The aroma is muted lemon and earthy. Nice.
The taste starts with mild lemon bitter, watery, a little spice and finishes with a mild lemon bitterness.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
It doesn't have a lot of flavor but not bad.

It's tough to rate this bier because I'm drinking it directly after having a bottle of Kuchlbauer Weisse and the Kuchlbauer Weisse is just better! Without the comparison, this is a solid weissbier that's actually edging towards a dunkel in taste and colour. With the comparison, it has a creaminness the Kuchlbauer doesn't have but much less taste. If I had the choice on a hot day, I'd be drinking the Kuchlbauer Weisse. Given that I'm drinking in Autumn, though, and this is a thicker brew, I'd be pretty content knocking a few more of these back and enjoy myself doing it. The best way to describe the beer is to say it's got the body of the Weihenstephaner but without the intense flavours! Well worth drinking, nonetheless!

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 15A). Bottle 50 cl - Batch L211107. AROMA: wheat malt profile dominates. low to no esters (bubblegum and banana). some yeast aroma. APPEARANCE: light amber color and hazy. slight ivory average head with good retention. FLAVOR: strong wheat profile with some bready yeast notes. none to very faint esters or phenols. PALATE: medium-light body and high carbonation. OVERALL: a weizen that lacks the traditional aromas of banana and vanilla.
