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.

Dark yellow and hazy. Buttery but clean and unassertive. Erdinger is like the Bud Light of hefeweizens.

Oakes (12429) - 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.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 21, 2005
wtf? This is a wheat beer?! Poured cloudy pale gold, with no head whatsoever. Slight hoppy aroma, with none of the typical banana. I would have sworn that I was drinking a pilsener if I was blind tasting. The flavour is pretty ordinary, bit of everything but not much of anything. Pretty weak really, so much so that my non beer-drinking wife liked this one - enough said.

(Bottle) Interesting. I have never seen this beer in Germany. When I saw it at a bar in Switzerland, I had to try it. Overall, I was disappointed. Pours golden with white head. Almost nothing like a real hefeweizen. Watery and diluted. Very carbonated as well. Not a fan.

saxo (14037) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2006
Bottle. Small head that fades qucikly. Hazy orange color. This reminds me more of champagne (which I dont really like) and not of beer. Way too high carbonation. Too acidic.

Stew41 (1736) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2007
Amazingly bland wheat beer. Mildy flavoured in every facet and only offers a mildy sticky and sweet corn syrup-like finish. Quite a surprise given most of the other beers from this house are decent.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Bottle, ok for a screw to it was cool, for a beer it was way to light, whats with these breweries putting out really light tasteless or bad tasting wheat beers. This one had a touch of off putting sourness to it.

esp0r (1974) - NORWAY - FEB 8, 2011
Bottle. (Not the one with the twister underneath) Light light hazy yellow with a thin white head. Smells weakly of oranges and apples. Flavour is sour and watery and totally out of balance with some taste of oranges and malts. Very little finish. The worst thing about this beer is that it’s actually made to taste nothing! why then botter to make it a wheat style in the first place???

HammerTroll (450) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 24, 2014
Hazy pale yellow, medium white head. Watery, thin body, average carbonation. Some yeast. Lack of banana, or even bubblegum. Awful Hefeweizen.
(InterSpar Ljubljana 0,33l bottle)
