2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy orange, good off-white head, livelycarbonation. Metallic cardboard and wheat aroma, not very strong. Quite carbonated mouthfeel. Crisp, almost witbier-like orangy flavor. Light to medium-bodied. Average refreshing weizen which lacks normal sweetish banana notes.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale golden. Unclear. White short head. Almost no aroma. Very mild flavour. Yeast. A hint of citrus. A hoppy note in the finish. Watery palate. WHAT A SHAME.

A good not too sweet wheat beer. Good quality and very simple. Modest moderate finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Color much veiled and pale. Ordinary but pleasant scent, decidedly fizzy. Fresh taste, much pungent with wine cellar aroma. Not memorable but altogether a good weiss.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasted from the bottle (I’m not a fan of twist tops!). Poured a typical hazy straw-gold, with a dense white head, that flattened out with minimal lacing. An aroma of candy sugar was quite pronounced, with nothing else. Biting carbonation reminded me of awful draught Maize lagers. Sweet throughout, very straightforward, and quite bland. Lacks all the credible wheat beer esters and phenols. Obviously made to win a new generation of young impressionables. The brewers at Erdinger Weissbrau should know better.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Pale yellow to orange colour. Big frothy head, which diminishes rather quickly. Slightly fruity aroma, something like apricot. Fruity taste, but otherwise rather flat. Sweetish. Ending in a slightly watery finish. Overall, it tastes a bit like a very watered-down fruit punch.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy tan colour, with a weak head. Fine but plentiful carbonation. Clean aroma for a wheat - slightly wheaty, slightly malty. I’d call it American in style as there is no hint of phenol nor ester. Finish is mainly watery. Another half-assed weissbier from Erdinger. I’m so glad I was able to follow this up with my last bottle of Zentrumsbier Weizen, China’s best kept beer secret.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Hazy golden color with a white head. The taste is??? Do I detect a light bitterness? Very thin and very boring.
