This is an unusual beer. It's a bit sweet, even for a Hefe. It's designed to be consumed straight from the bottle and has a bottle opener built into the bottom of each bottle. When I rode the trains with my German friends, they insisted that this was the only Hefe that could be consumed on the go! Oh, and make sure that after you pop the cap, swirl the bottle vigorously before the first sip to ensure that the yeast and sediment are evenly distributed.

Bread/yeast and citrus/lemons in aroma, although relatively faint. The flavor is lemons, yeast and grainy malts.

Erdinger Champ has a thin, off-white, fizzy head, a hazy, yellow-orange appearance, which hazes up even more when the bottom of the bottle is swished and poured in, lots of bubble streams and clinging bubbles, and pretty much no lacing left behind. The aroma is sweet and bready. The flavor is of sweetness, yeasty bread, a hint of banana, a hint of coriander, and some tap water. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Erdinger Champ finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and delicious.
