Erdinger Champ is the ideal lifestyle wheat beer: it’s brewed in such a way that it can be drunk straight from the bottle, but without compromising Erdinger’s legendary flavor and high quality standards. The 0.33-liter longneck bottle with its unique opening mechanism emphasizes the lifestyle character of the new beer. In addition to its twist-open cap, the innovative bottle also features an integrated opener on the bottom for extra convenience. Simply place one Erdinger Champ on top of another to twist open the bottom bottle. As you can see, it’s always best to order two bottles and enjoy Erdinger Champ in company! With its fine yeast, Erdinger Champ has the character of a classic Bavarian wheat beer. The yeast gives the beer is natural, slightly cloudy appearance. Erdinger Champ - pure wheat beer enjoyment straight from the bottle.

Dark gold body that is clear when decanted. I got some dark colored floaters and cloudiness when I poured out the whole bottle. The head is whte. Aroma of buttered dark bread with some light pears.There is also some very light banana and oranges. The taste has some light banana and pears. There is also some light clove in the finish. Overall,it also has a little bit of cardboard. Not a good hefe, Erdinger has done much better.

(Bottle 33 cl) Rarely - if ever - did I get a German Hefe in a 33 cl bottle, and also with the bottom designed to be a cap opener. All gadgets aside, this is still a beer. Hazy, deep orange beer with a surprisingly weak head. You really get confused as to whether this really is a Weissbier, as you don’t get any of the wonderful, fruity esters that categorize the style. A Hefe in looks only. Why? Not unpleasant, just bland. 200501

Bottle. Creamy white head, mostly lasting, yellow colour, moderate citrus-hoppy aroma. No yeast in aroma or taste. More like pilsener than hefe.

Bottle. Cloudy golden colour. Small unstable head. Yeasty flavour, hint of pineapple. A bit flavourlfess, but OK, I guess.

wtf? This is a wheat beer?! Poured cloudy pale gold, with no head whatsoever. Slight hoppy aroma, with none of the typical banana. I would have sworn that I was drinking a pilsener if I was blind tasting. The flavour is pretty ordinary, bit of everything but not much of anything. Pretty weak really, so much so that my non beer-drinking wife liked this one - enough said.

Cloudy dark yellow with a small white head. Thin and a bit unclean banana aroma. Thin body with notes of banana. Short spicy aftertaste. I’ve never been impressed by Erdinger....

Pours a cloudy yellow with a fizzy head, poor retention and lacing. Bready yeasty aroma with some cloves. Fairly thin wheaty mouthful , good level of carbonation and a very crisp finish. Just a standard wheat beer.

Cloudy pale golden with a fine but weak head formation. Wheaty, malty aroma but quite weak. OK wheaty flavours but lacking complexity of real hefeweizens. Slight banana esters and almost a bit watery. I could not taste any hops at all.

(Bottled) Opaque, light orange color with a medium, vanishing head and almost no lace. Mild, sweetish, lemony-fruity, slightly plasticky aroma. Sweet and wheaty, yeasty, very fruity flavor. Moderately thick, medium-bodied palate with quite smooth carbonation. A very easily drinkable and smooth, quite pleasant brew - although it’s quite far from the "regular" weizen. An easy hefeweizen for the masses, and not bad as such.
