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.

fonefan (35055) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2006
Bottled, twist-off cap. Hazy, yellow-orange beer with a white head and nice carbonation. Weak, malty and fruity aroma and flavor. Quite disappointing.

yespr (31178) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours unclear yellow/orange with white head. Aroma is wheat and yeast but rather little aroma. Taste is wheat and sweet, lemon notes. Rather dry finish.

Ungstrup (29285) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2002
An unclear very yellow beer with almost no head and an almost nonexisting aroma. It tastes slightly of wheat - but only slightly - if I want a main stream wheat beer I don’t want this one. Overall a below average beer - nothing to speak of - drink it for quencing your thirst not for a beer experience.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Rarely - if ever - did I get a German Hefe in a 33 cl bottle, and also with the bottom designed to be a cap opener. All gadgets aside, this is still a beer. Hazy, deep orange beer with a surprisingly weak head. You really get confused as to whether this really is a Weissbier, as you don’t get any of the wonderful, fruity esters that categorize the style. A Hefe in looks only. Why? Not unpleasant, just bland. 200501

Bottle at Københavns Ølfestival 2010. Hazy yellow coloured with a small white head. Sweet and fruity aroma of caramel and berries. Fruity flavour of caramel and berries. Light watery.

omhper (19370) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2002
Dark yellow and hazy. Buttery but clean and unassertive. Erdinger is like the Bud Light of hefeweizens.

Bamberg Bash Day 3. Bottle at Munich airport. Hazy gold beer, big fluffy pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and airy and crisp. Smooth pale malt, touch of vanilla and cream. Light minerals and a whisper of lactose.

saxo (14044) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2006
Bottle. Small head that fades qucikly. Hazy orange color. This reminds me more of champagne (which I dont really like) and not of beer. Way too high carbonation. Too acidic.
