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.

Duft av appelsin og aprikos, lite skum, gul-brun grumset på farge. Litt syrlig smak men ikke mye. Et godt leskende øl i varmen men ikke så mye mer.

Weizenbierchen ? Vielleicht irgendwo ja, aber lustigerweise fehlen die dafür typischen Aromen. Und wenn die noch ausbleiben, ist es nur noch ein wässriges etwas, das irgendwann mal ein "helles" werden möchte.

McTapps (3558) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 18, 2013
As I really don’t like just any German Hefeweizen, I must admit that I quite enjoyed this one, but probably only, because it seemed to me more like an Ale or Wheat Ale, than a Hefeweizen. I didn’t drink it out of the bottle -of course- and it poured a cloudy light amber colour with low steady creamy head and medium body. Nose of fine hops and yeast. Taste of very light and young fresh yeast, mild hops, light malt, citrus fruits and grass. Easy to drink, refreshing, nothing to moan about.

A cerveja deixa a desejar. Não possui muito gosto, sendo um pouco aguada. Possui um leve amargor destoante no final.

330 ml. Gylden, litt uklar med hvitt dårlig skum. Aroma av hvete. Smaker av banan, men lite kompleksitet og kort ettersmak. Ikke så frisk. (Munkegata, 06.06.13)

Pours clear, bubbly gold with a large white head. Tart lemon, malt scent. Taste is very plain...wheat lemon... Not spiced at all...very plain... Ok, but rather boring.

330ml bottle bought at CitySuper in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Cloudy hazy golden honey colour; One finger head with white foam which last for about 40 seconds; Minimal lacing and active carbonation; Pungent, macro pale lager-like smell of malt and strawy hops, plus bread and faint light orange; Light sweet taste of lager malt laced with some tartness, bread, hint of citrus and faint hops; Mid to light body, quite slick palate; Taste is all-lager, totally dominated by the bready malt. Essentially no taste of hefeweiss except the tartness, which is also very light; Hoppiness is macro straw smell, near zero taste, and only faint hint of bitterness which doesn’t contribute any finish; Slightly dry after taste, very easy to mouth.

Comments: This is a weissbier in name only. It tastes overwhelmingly a lowly macro pale lager, with only some light orangey smell and tart taste saving grace. All in vain, though, as I expect nothing less for a weiss and this one simply fails to deliver. A total dud.

Dette var en gedigen skuffelse - trodde faktisk det var alkoholfri hveteøl, så lite aroma og smak var det. Kanskje ikke annet å vente ettersom jeg ratet deres Hefe-Weizen til bare 2.7 pga skuffende kort ettersmak.
