2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(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.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Found this in a Mercator store in Zadar. A hefe that can be drunk from a bottle, eh ? A recipe for failure more likely. I don’t like the regular Erdinger weissbiers. I find them too watery and lacking real hefe taste. This is probably a watered down version of Erdinger. Go them. Looks fine though. Hazey orange, with a thick head that holds on for some time, and then suddenly turns fluffy and collapses from within. The honey-with-some-cream-on-top look.
Smells more like a pilsener then a weissbier. Very faint too. Taste.... exactly what I expeted. Watery, overcarbonated, lacking real weissbier flavors other than some faint lemon. It’s yeasty though. Mild aftertaste. A hefe for those that really don’t know better.

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.
