COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2004
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.

Hazy golden color with a white head. The taste is??? Do I detect a light bitterness? Very thin and very boring.

Pineapple aroma, cloudy yellow colour, suds lacing, banana flavour and fizzy finish.

Their regular weissbier wort fermented with lager yeast? I got no clove/banana/bubblegum - nothing. Slight tropical fruit aroma but rather disappointingly nothingy. Flavour is lightly sweet and wheaty - not too bad. Light and refreshing I guess but I’d rather have a real weissbier. Extra points for the bottle-opening mechanism thingy!!!

A satisfying wheat. I never expect less form Erdinger. I gave some extra points in appearence and overall for the clever bottle design. Why this brilliant little idea has not been implemented around the world is a mystery to me.

Choos (634) - 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.

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.

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.
