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.

Rasmus40 (17427) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2011
Hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is weak, wheaty and yeasty. Flavor is medium sweet. Boring. Doesn’t really feel like a hefeweizen. 240409

Koelschtrinker (16806) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 26, 2011
Laffes und eintöniges Weizen, geringe Hefigkeit, kaum andere Aromen. Kurzum: Unnötig. /8/5/6/7/6/6

saxo (16731) - 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.

Theydon_Bois (16654) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2014
Bottle at Erdinger Sportscafe, Munchen Flughafen T2, 26/01/14. Had to ask for a glass with this one, can see why now from the write up above! Lightly hazed orange golden with a good sized white head. Nose is light soap, floral strains, citrus, straw. Taste comprises light nana, yeast, bread dough, lemon, hint of spice. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, clean closure. So so, not much depth, not really true to the style.

yngwie (16483) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 8, 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. Way to sugar-sweet. Sweet, lightly spiced finish. Medium body. (060508)

TBone (16097) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 9, 2005
Bottled
Hazy orange, good off-white head, livelycarbonation. Metallic cardboard and wheat aroma, not very strong. Quite carbonated mouthfeel. Crisp, almost witbier-like orangy flavor. Light to medium-bodied. Average refreshing weizen which lacks normal sweetish banana notes.

Oakes (15490) - 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.

Dedollewaitor (15485) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2007
Hazy yellow with white head. Very pilsner like with a little wheat notes. Watery body with a easy sweet malty taste. Easy drinkable but rather disappointing coming from Erdinger!
