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.

Christian (11786) - 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.

bierkoning (11111) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2003
Golden color, cloudy, nice and thick creamy head. Banana aroma and flavor. Sweetish, just a bit chalky and medecinal. Somewhat diluted version of erdinger hefeweizen, but with enough flavor to be worthwile tasting.

madsberg (10711) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2006
Bottled: Orange coloured. Unclear. Fluffy white head. This is a bland brew. Light wheaty notes in the aroma. Some spice and yeast. Flavour is very watery and thin. LIght yeast, light spice, some fruits and NO banana. I like banana in my hefe. Don’t leave any impressions on the palate. Boring. Erdinger just dosn’t do it for me.

11.2 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a hazy orange color with a large fizzy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of wheat with a bit of doughiness and caramel. Citrus, soft stone fruits, spice, yeast. The taste is citrus, wheat, fairly strong clove, mild banana, some toastiness. Medium bodied, fizzy carbonation. Decent.
