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.

highlandlad (1464) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2005
Pretty poor Bavarian wheat beer from a brewer that does the style much better elsewhere. The gimmick here is that you’re encouraged to drink this from the bottle. Which might explain why it looked so flat and uninviting in a glass. It’s cloudy apricot colour with a short vanishing head. The aroma was sweet and fruity but noticably light on wheat. It shows faint banana and pineapple, with a hint of lemonade shandy. On the tongue, it has some sweet pears and a light sweet-sour banana finish. All in all, it tastes like an attempt to win new drinkers by making a hefe that has as few of the characteristics of the style as possible. It’s refreshing but that’s about it. (33ml bottle, Randwick Village Cellars, bb 2/06)

MoritzF (9286) - Ottobrunn, 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.

fonefan (43245) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 3, 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.

Borup (11043) - Albertslund, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2006
Botte, hazy yellow beer with white head. Malty and fruity aroma as well as flavour. Easy to drink but a thin and disappointed weissbier.

Stefano (1952) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 19, 2007
Cloudy light yellow appearance. Not much aroma. Taste however is off, watery, spices are weak, wheat isn’t strong enough. palate is downright boring.

Defreni (2982) - Husum, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2007
Flaske. Håbløs øl. Filtreret så den var en anelse klarere end hvedeøl normalt er. Ingen duft eller smag af noget af betydning. Det eneste positive er at den er så ligegyldig at den kan drikkes.

Muggus69 (2023) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - APR 9, 2008
330ml bottle, served chilled. Can’t help but admire the ingenius bottle design, shame I only bought the one. Pale gold body with slight haze and a small white head, not nearly as foamy as you’d come to expect from a weizen. Sweet malt nose, grainy and biscuity, some bready yeast and subtle spice, smells more like a lager gone wrong. Medium-thin body, carbonation is not as lively and texture is not as creamy as one would expect. Malt driven body, quite sweet and biscuity, a touch of metallic spice and bread, hint of bananary esters. This is considered a hefeweizen? Don’t think so!

...obviously bottle. Well, was rather disappointed in this, but had a cool bottle design if you were drinking out somewhere. But, it’s a twist off, so I don’t really see the point. It had a light yellow color, with a tiny white head, aroma of wheat, and that’s about it. Watery, light bodied with a slightly bready malt flavor, not so great. Better than some "wheat beers" here in australia, but otherwise, blasphemy.

Ernest (7249) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is hazy light to medium yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with light notes of gum, paint, and plastic. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy/lively carbonation. About what you’d expect from this mainstream brewery.
