Nicko (191) - Ashfield, - NOV 15, 2009
Labelled as Oktoberfest Weissbeir. Aroma of sweet grainy wheat, some banana. Starts lightly sweet with a touch of hop bitterness turning more bland toward a thinner smooth finish.

Erdinger Oktoberfest Weissbier has a very thick, frothy, overflowing white head, a cloudy (which gets much cloudier once the bottom contents are swished & poured in), yellow-gold appearance, fierce bubble streams, and a bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of white wheat bread, some sweetness, and a touch of yeast. Taste is of white wheat bread, malt, some paper, a little bit of bitterness, and a syrupy sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium and soft, and Erdinger Oktoberfest finishes semi-wet, a tad alcohilic, and easy drinking. RJT

Bork (181) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Mild and gentle. Traces of the regular weizen characteristics, albeit with less aromas and flavors. No resemblance to Oktoberfest beers. Mild, clean and highly drinkable.

slowrunner77 (2131) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 5, 2014
"Decent interpretation of the style...no frills, and perhaps a bit on the light/thin side, but otherwise enjoyable. Bready and sweet, with a touch of noble hops and bubble gum yeast, just a little lighter than i like the style."

BeerandBlues2 (9701) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 2, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2014 Bottle at home. Pours hazy orange with a large, creamy off-white head, long retention with light lacing. Aroma is earthy and spicy wheat malt, faint banana and clove esters. Flavor is wheat malt dominant, light banana and cloves with a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

alexsdad06 (5429) - Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle from backlog notes 07. Pours a cloudy golden color with a medium plus sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale wheat malts, citrus, a hint of sweet bubblegum, grass, caramel, mild overall and not worth revisiting.

trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2014
11.2oz bottle pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thick white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of wheat, spices and butter, and caramel. Tastes of the same things in the smell with a sweet aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light and chewy with great carbonation. Overall a great example of a German Oktoberfest style beer. Light but full of flavor. Would definitely drink this again.

TXBadger (1394) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Pours a nice amber color with white head. Very malty on the nose with some caramel notes adding in; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more malt.

venom666 (347) - Alicante, SPAIN - MAY 26, 2014
Hazy deep golden color with fluffy white head. Banana, malt and clove on the aroma. The taste is not very weizen-like, with some bitterness and a lightly fruity presence.
