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.

Defreni (2919) - 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 (1867) - 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!

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2008
...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 (7123) - 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.

hopscotch (10523) - 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.

garza (573) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - OCT 3, 2010
Clear yellow colour with a minimal white head. Yeast, malty aroma. Medium sweet and some citrus but overall, very mild, watery and flat. Kind of dry after taste.

Laffes und eintöniges Weizen, geringe Hefigkeit, kaum andere Aromen. Kurzum: Unnötig. /8/5/6/7/6/6

Shaney (2424) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2012
#1024 Hellgelb, wenig trüb, der Schaum ist gleich wieder auf der Flucht. Ein absolut säuerliches Aroma gänzlich ohne Fruchtnoten. Dünner, um nicht zu sagen wässriger Antrunk. Minimale Hefenote, wiederum sehr säuerlich im Geschmack, geradezu plörriger, akzentloser Abgang. "Mild&Pur" und "Einzigartig im Geschmack" steht aufm Etikett. "Mild" und "Einzigartig" stimmen, denn dieser "Champ" ist einzigartig schlecht! Test vom 19.1.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 6,5,6,4,9,6 - 5,70
