Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 15A). Bottle 50cl - batch L041108. AROMA: wheat malt background with some mild sweet notes and esters. APPEARANCE: light gold color and a bit hazy. large moussy white head with below-average retention. TASTE: wheat malt background with some ester notes. PALATE: medium-light body with average carbonation. OVERALL: an average festweisse a bit more complex than the traditional Erdinger weizen.

12oz bottle - Decent, but I’d hate to give this to someone and tell them that this is a representative of the Oktoberfest beer that they enjoy each year in Germany. It lacks flavor, it lacks aroma. It starts out with a blast of bubblegum aroma then smoothes into some pilsner-ish aroma. Flavor has a minimal approach to the malt profile, and it really reminds me of a weak hefeweizen or a light pils. Blah...

Bottle. Hazy light golden medium white head. Aroma of grass and straw, mild overall. Light sweet taste. Light body, bubbly, light sweet finish. Overall pretty good a little dry.

This was pretty disappointing. Mich milder flavour (maltwise and hopwise) than I was expected. Not much different from an ordinary lager.

Flat nose, flat taste, ok look and mouthfeel. A very forgettable weibier. Skip this, Hoegaarden would've been a far superior choice.

Marcius (235) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - OCT 22, 2014
Appearance with pale golden color, cloudy liquid and high cream short-lived. Fruity aroma (banana, melon and a little passion) On the palate, the body is light, despite the higher alcohol content. An interesting edition of Erdinger.

rayaron (558) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - OCT 22, 2014
Bottle 0.5l. Cloudy yellow with medium creamy white head. Aroma of sweetish banana, yeasty, a bit floral, earthy. Moderate banana flavor, sweetish, a bit soapy, floral, spicy, light sour finish. Creamy texture, too carbonated, light to medium body.

Pours clear gold with two fingers of fizzy head that quickly fades to nothing. Wheat and lemon aroma. Taste is similar with a somewhat creamy mouth feel.

stravale (2395) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle from Supervalu, Longford [141014]
Orange yellow, hazy, dense foamy white head. Nose of vague fruits, slight citrus and light sweet malts. Taste of soft pale malts and creamy wheat, slight fruits, not much going on, rather plain, little of the usual hefeweizen flavours. Seems to be more like a wheaty lager. Medium carb and body. Fairly sweet. Finish as main flavour, some creamy wheat, rather rapid finish. Overall found this dull, bit lacking in flavour, did have some nice creamy wheat and was easy drinking for the abv. I think I prefer it to the normal Erdinger.
