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.

hopscotch (9047) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 23, 2009
Bottle… Clear yellow ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Good retention. Low key grainy aroma with gentle notes of white pepper and honey. Light to medium-bodied with an abrasive mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Well-balanced. Minerally, peppery flavor. Short, crisp, mostly clean finish.

daknole (9042) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Poured at the Gulfstream beer fest. Terrible hefe. Awful. A hazy gold. Aroma is way too grainy and malty and lacks the usually wheat, bubblegum, banana and cloves that I am used to. its grainy and bitter both in the nose and on the tongue. I don’t get it. nasty.

pivnizub (8764) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 20, 2006
Bottle: Slightly hazy, medium sized, quickly diminishing head; faint fruity nose, mainly lemon and cloves; mild sweetish, a bit sourish, zoo, flavour, light bodied, almost watery; short, a bit sweetish, a bit fruity finish. A "modern" Weißbier: watery and mainly tasteless......

MoritzF (8444) - Bochum, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2006
(bottle) Hazy yellow colour with a medium-sized frothy, slightly off-white unstable head. Dry yeasty and dense fruity aroma. Initially wheat-malty taste with banana and pear; light bodied, lively carbonated; dry and very slim fruity and malty finish, slightly tart. Boring and uninspiring Weizen without the typical clovy spice.

Drake (8186) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 24, 2013
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.

Theydon_Bois (8100) - The ’Sham, Surrey, 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.

Rune (7956) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2007
330ml bottle. Cloudy, pale orange body. Fragile white foam. Discreet smell of clove and wheat. Flavour has got some sweet fruity esters. Sweet watery texture and frail bodied (14.05.2007).

Quack-Duck (7793) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 27, 2008
bottle. Hazy pale yellow, medium-sized head. Very mild beer indeed, so mild there is hardly any flavour in it. Hints of banana, slightly yeasty with come citrusy notes.
