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.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 15A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L122108.

TASTE: watered down wheat flavour without perceptible esters. low bitterness with a sweet finish. PALATE: medium body with medium-low carbonation. OVERALL: a very poor and watered down weizen.

Bottle 0.33l at Erdinger stand Horeca Expo Ghent Belgium 2014.Bartender told me drink directly from the bottle.Taste is something between pilsner and weissbier, it seems like cheaper version of weissbier.Interesting all together.

Gul uklar med hvitt skum. Tynn, medium med kullsyre. Lukter lite, men finneren anelse hvete. Lite smak. Lettdrikkelig. Kjedelig...

BOSSbrewer (1991) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow. No heat. Aroma is slightly floral with some yeast and wheat. Flavor follows and is somewhat bland. Drinkable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

eduardovl (970) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 330ml bottle served in a Weizen glass. A: Pours a slightly cloudy orange color forming a big thin bubbled white head. A filtered Weissbier, for sure. Medium retention and some small spotty lacings left in the glass S: Strong sweet grains upfront and quite fruity too. Traditional banana aroma mixed with some spices, mainly cloves. Wheat and bready in the middle followed by earthy yeasts T: Slightly sweet upfront. Sweet grains, wheat, notes of banana and cloves. Strong notes of wheat , quite bready. Very low bitterness as expected. Nice earthy yeasts in the end. In overall, a very smooth and bready beer M: Medium and creamy body. Good carbonation and a very bready aftertaste O: Very drinkable as it should. A popular Weissbier. Not bad [ BA Review @ 2/10/2013 ]

martin00sr (888) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle from Bamsen. Hazy orange, huge offwhite head. Grainy aroma and flavour with very discrete weissbier characteristics. Sweetish finish, soft mouthfeel. Hmm.

Bamsen78 (3428) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy lightish amber with airy white head. Cweak aroma of hops, metal and yeast. Grainy and hoppy flavour, with estery notes. Where is my banana??! High carbonation. Slightly bitter and grainy aftertaste. Feels, smells and tastes like a budget or demo version of the rather decent original version. Disappointing, although easily quaffable.

digopossobon (296) - MACAE, BRAZIL - SEP 20, 2014
O creme se formou bem denso e amarelado. Porém foi sumindo aos poucos. Liquido turvo e amarelo escuro, quase dourado. Até o momento tudo dentro do script. Aroma fraco, lembrando mais a malte do que o esperado aroma de banana e canela. Não é uma cerveja muito densa. A primeira sensação é agradável, com o frescor esperado de uma cerveja de trigo, mas o lúpulo forte além da conta atrapalha um pouco. Surge de forma inesperada. Além disso, a cerveja tem uma citricidade no início. Bem suave. O retrogosto é bem amargo e combina pouco com o estilo. De forma geral, não foi uma experiência ruim. Também está longe de ser uma experiência fenomenal.

HammerTroll (595) - 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)
