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.

GoufCustom (795) - HONG KONG - MAY 4, 2013


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.

This is a light flavored hefeweizen, light in color, aroma, etc. Definetively I will not buy it again. This one is for people who doesn’t care about good beer, I guess is for that market.

Hugi (352) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2013
Light yellow, hazy, medium head. Smell of pears and bananas, bubblegum and a bit malty. Fruity taste. High drinkability, fizzy, light body.

0,33l bottle. Aroma is wheat and yeast, just like the taste. Not so great hefeweizen.

Kita (1030) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JAN 31, 2013
Bottled, 0.50l. Hazy pale golden color with small white head, soft carbonation and traces of yeast residue. Aroma of yeast, wheat, mild banana and grassy hops. Taste starts with sweet & sour wheat malt, then followed by light banana and vanilla notes. Mouthfeel is quite plain, while aftertaste is mildly bitter. Medium body, slick texture and soft carbonation in palate. It’s not a champ, indeed...

suprchunk (2161) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Cloudy straw colored pour. Small white head that falls a quickly as it's poured. No lacing. A fruity aroma muddled with hops malt and yeast. Dry sweet but bitter taste. Not as offensive in the back, but not that great either. It is okay, but I won't pick up anymore. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stefannilssons (1458) - SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2012
Det bör tilläggas att klockan var ganska mycket när jag drack denna och det hade varit ett gäng andra öl innan denna. Men i stort var det en okej öl, smaken hade inslag av jäst, citrus och kanske lite banan. Dessvärre var den lite för liten i kroppen och balansen var obefintlig.

bergstaden (1216) - Røros, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2012
Pale hazy golden with a white head - malt and some wheat in the aroma - malt and some wheat in the taste as well - this was ok, but nothing special
