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.

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2007
This one is meant the be drunk from the bottle - so OK, so I did. The flavour is like a watery Erdinger, so the rest I pour into a glass. It has no head, and a very weak aroma. The flavour has notes of honey, flower and very little wheat. Harmless it is, yes, but I think the reason why this is sold, must be the drink-from-the-bottle concept - not the flavour.

daknole (10103) - 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.

Drake (9999) - 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.

hopscotch (9972) - 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.

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......

It seems not as good as regular Erdinger, perhaps I got an old bottle. A typical, but somewhat lacking Bavarian Hefeweissbier.
