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.

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

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Murky lemon colour with a short white lasting head. Banana and wheat aroma. Taste of banana and slight cloves. Simple but enjoyable.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
