10.23.09 While this was a decent weizen it didnt see to be so far off from standard Erdinger weizen so I’m not sure what was with the whole Fest thing.

I spotted a bottle of this along with a bottle of the weissbier, which is widely available around town, at Wellcome supermarket down the road from me, so decided to drink and compare. Aroma: sour. Appearance: opaque amber, little or no head - not ANOTHER bad bottle?! Palate: soft carbonation, sweeter than the weissbier, with a longer finish. Taste: a marginal improvement on the weissbier, with banana notes. Still, nothing special.

Beachmaster (462) - Oklahoma, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle into a masskrug. Pours a clear pale yellow, with a massive white head that rapidly fades. Nose is faint aroma of yeast. Taste is on the sweet side for a hefewiezen, but otherwise typical for the style, Not bad as a change of pace, but if it’s a German Hefeweizen you’re after, stick with Franziskaner.

decaturstevo (5850) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 20, 2016
Deep yellow pour almost gold. With creamy white head and clinging lace. Aroma is light medium malt with what I perceive as banana. Flavor is sweet malt start with no sign of the banana. Bitter finish is just about right for me on the style. Medium body with smooth carbonation. Seems to water out just at the end.

chinchill (4338) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 17, 2016
.33L bottle listing 5.7% ABV; served in a lager glass. Pours hazy amber with a towering, frothy white head that has excellent retention. Flavor: some typical German weissbier character (banana[ spice; wheat) with more balance and subtlety than usual. Feel: near light bodied with soft medium-high carbonation. Overall: excellent hefeweizen.

GreenCat (37) - SLOVENIA - OCT 16, 2016
0,5 l bottle. Pours golden yellow with consistent thick white head. Aroma is malty and fruity, with little typical hefe banana and clove. Very mild aromas in general. Taste is on the sweet side, some yeast, malt, some fruitiness, pears and it’s slightly sour. Body is light to medium, oily texture and medium carbonation. Light bitter and sour finish. Far from top class hefeweizen, but nicely drinkable.

djoeye (3835) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2016
Aroma; hay, coriander, apple, toffee, sweet malts, white bread or bun. Look; dense white head and hazy bright golden body. Taste; wheat bread, tart with apple, crystal sugar, cinnamon note, caramels - leading to a mild sweet leafy finish. Feel; good body, up-tuned carbonation, mostly soft in the mouth. Overall; quality brew. ["Erdinger Oktoberfest" 50cl.btl 5.7% BB.07/17 t@Sånn Tromsø]

From tap as Erdinger Oktoberfest Weizen at Mi2 at Cardinal 10.10.16. Cloudy straw colour. Foamy, dense and persistent head and lacing. Moderate aroma of weissbier, green bananas, pale malt and wheat malt,with hints of tropical fruits. Similar taste. A bit waterish.

On tap at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours hazy golden with white head. Aroma of bananas, sulfur, bread, hay, lemon. Taste sweet and fruity fresh worth balancing bitterness.

Fat bishops örebro. Grumlig orangegul vätska. Brödig och lätt knäckig doft med örter och halm. Liknande i smak. Aningen vattning och karaktärslös

Orange color, hazy, lots of carbonation. Fruity aroma, yeasty, wheat. Similar to a blonde aroma. Sweet and a little tart, green banana, bready flavor, lots of unfermented sugars. Just a touch of hoppiness. Something isn’t working for me with this beer. Very average.
