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.

wlajwl (3935) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Bread/yeast and citrus/lemons in aroma, although relatively faint. The flavor is lemons, yeast and grainy malts. It was quaffable, but the flavor just wasn’t what it needed to be.

McTapps (4359) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 18, 2013
As I really don’t like just any German Hefeweizen, I must admit that I quite enjoyed this one, but probably only, because it seemed to me more like an Ale or Wheat Ale, than a Hefeweizen. I didn’t drink it out of the bottle -of course- and it poured a cloudy light amber colour with low steady creamy head and medium body. Nose of fine hops and yeast. Taste of very light and young fresh yeast, mild hops, light malt, citrus fruits and grass. Easy to drink, refreshing, nothing to moan about.

Drake (8617) - 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.

CanCrusher (655) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle 0,33L. Hazy yellow colour with small, creamy, white head that dissipate fast. Weak aroma of banana and chewing gum. Taste starts light sweet and become light acidic in the aftertaste. Medium to full body with oily texture and lively carbonation. Comparing it to classic Erdinger, they acquired on drinkability and refreshnes, but lost on richness of taste.

Bamberg Bash Day 3. Bottle at Munich airport. Hazy gold beer, big fluffy pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and airy and crisp. Smooth pale malt, touch of vanilla and cream. Light minerals and a whisper of lactose.
