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.

Choos (604) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2004
Banana and pineapple aromas. Small head and cloudy yellow (but this isn’t designed to go into a glass I suppose). Wheaty, yeasty and lightly banana with a hint of clove. Suprisingly good thick enough mouthfeel.

Sample AIBA 2004. Quite cloudy, very light and sweet with banana dominating both aroma and flavour.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 20, 2004
Very nice "weissbier light" doesent pretend to be more than it is. The refreshing taste is nice on a warm spring day in the sun.

bluevegie (3053) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 8, 2004
Murky lemon colour with a short white lasting head. Banana and wheat aroma. Taste of banana and slight cloves. Simple but enjoyable.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2004
Medium hazy honey with hint of orange colour with a fine bubbled snowy/pearl white head that lasts along with some random lace. Aroma is faint sourdough and light woody hops becoming staler as it warms. Soft mouth filling body with some mild tongue and side mouth tingling action. Mild kinda watery sour mash grainy and light bitter hops flavours. Faint tropical esters only arrive as it warms but overall it's a bit wish-washy and lacks any real definition.

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2004
Orange cloudy. Wet cardboard and yeast aroma that tastes like a mix of a bland lager and a wheat beer. Why ? Is the biggest question with this beer.

bierkoning (10210) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2003
Golden color, cloudy, nice and thick creamy head. Banana aroma and flavor. Sweetish, just a bit chalky and medecinal. Somewhat diluted version of erdinger hefeweizen, but with enough flavor to be worthwile tasting.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2003
Not as much taste as a normal Erdinger (which really hasn't muchtaste either...). I guess this one is made for the youth! Watery taste with very low wheat and bitterness. Boring.

argo0 (11535) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 12, 2003
Hazy golden body with medium off-white head. Aroma is light lemon, clove, wheat. Taste is medium sweet, lemony, wheat. Light watery body. Ok summery beer, though it starts to get old by the end of the bottle.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 2, 2003
A unique beer all around, right down to the bottle it came in. Color is a pale light yellow with a fine white head that faded fast, no real lacing appeared as it was consumed. Smell is lightly spritzy of citrus lemon, fresh and sharp. Taste is fairly zesty of lemon, light and fresh. Feel is full at first with all the flavors packed right in the front then thins out quickly leaving some extremely light tartness in finish. This is a one light little fresh punch of fun. It's good but not great.
