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.

Dedollewaitor (13803) - 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!

MiP (13596) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2005
Bottle. Cloudy golden colour. Small unstable head. Yeasty flavour, hint of pineapple. A bit flavourlfess, but OK, I guess.

yngwie (13351) - 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 (12544) - 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 (12361) - 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.

bu11zeye (11940) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 26, 2006
(Bottle) Pours a lightly cloudy maize body with a large creamy white head. Aroma of mustiness, light citrus, and banana. Flavor of wheat and banana.

argo0 (11452) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 12, 2003
Hazy golden body with medium off-white head. Aroma is light lemon, clove, wheat. Taste is medium sweet, lemony, wheat. Light watery body. Ok summery beer, though it starts to get old by the end of the bottle.

thewolf (11158) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2007
Bottle, bought @ Føtex, Aabenraa. Pours a very light pale yellow with a small creamy white head. Aroma is a little sharp but still sweet. Very watery palate. Flavour is sweetish, but exceptionally bland for a hefe.

Christian (11056) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2007
From the bottle as recommended: Cloudy light colour, no head visible. Very light fruity aroma if you want to stick your nose in a bottle. Sweet flavour with a hint of yeast. From the glass like a real beer: Cloudy yellow with a huge head. Fruity fresh aroma with a bit of hay. Sweet and thin flavour with just a little fruityness at the finish.

Rasmus40 (10904) - 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
