2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bland bland bland. Hazy yellow in colour with a thin quickly discipating head. The nose is soft of yeast and malts. The taste is just about the same with an underlying taste of water. Farily easy to drink, but the wheat and yeast is jus terriblely difficutl to enjoy.

Another mediocre wheat. Deep brown with miniscule tan head. Malt and caramel nose. Medium body. Flavor was unexceptional. More "lawnmower beer."

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Aroma is malty, sweet, caramel, spicey, and slight alcohol. Pours a very dark reddish-brown with a big tan head with okay retention. Virtually no lacing. Flavor is very malty with a very strong caramel taste. Alcohol is covered up rather well. Not much aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clowded deep brown color with a significant creamy head. Aroma smells like roasted malt with a wheat back, reminds me of pasta for some reason. Flavor is a pleasing maltyness blended with bananna. Palate is crisp, but not harsh enough to intrude over the flavor.

Malty aroma with dark brown clear colour with no lacing. Short heavy malt flavour with fizzy flat palate.

Bottle: Copper colour pours a heavy and foamy head. Sweet, caramel and fruity aroma and taste, slightly bitter. Acohol is very well hidden, overall great balance. Erdingers are some of my favourite beers.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep copper hue with nice creamy off-white head and excellent lace. The aroma hints of fruits, spice, caramel, floral hops, and a earthy yeast ester. The taste is very much a hybrid, some bock character (sweet malts and a touch of alcohol) with the banana, lemon and clove of the hefeweizen. The finish is a bit shorter than I would want but okay. The monuthfeel is strangely soft and a bit chewy. Overall a good brew but middle of the road for the genre. Worthy of a bottle.

I was thoroughly impressed with this beer. Dark with a half-ass creamy head. It had a unique aftertaste. I would consider buying this again if I was feeling saucy enough.

This is a good weizen bock. I thought it tasted a little funny at first, but the after taste it leaves is wonderful. Nice brown coloring with perfect white head

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer suffer since it will always be compaired to Aventinus. Even the price is the same. . Poured a deep brown with a off-white head. Palate is slightly thin and flavours aren't as complex as Aventinus. Smooth and fruity and a reasonable option if the big A isn't available.
