2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
O.5L Bottle. Dark, murky amber color, good lasting head. Very slight wheaty, yeasty aroma. Very light taste, barely noticeable flavors of clove and yeast, slightly creamy. Some bitterness in the finish. Only distinct characteristics are bubbly mouthfeel and a tinge of alcohol.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Deep golden to orangey coloured, stable off-white head; wheaty-yeasty nose with some "oaky" hops in the wings; sweetish-sourish flavour, quite light bodied for a beer of 5.6% ABV, soft MF; sweet-malty finish. A bit better rounded than the "normal" Erdinger, but still -as usual - without aroma......

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Head was average off-white and frothy. Colour was light cloudy orange. Aroma was light wheat, some yeast, fruity, citrus, spicy and some light malty notes. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Light fresh finish. Noting spectacular.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep apricot haze. Clean banana woodiness with a finishing sourish dryness. Lovely, lingering biscuity wheat mellowing things out after the swallow. Just enough Pils-like bitterness to win over the white beer cynic. A definite wisp of smoke. Erdinger’s signature milky smoothness. But is it festively different enough to the standard version?

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice looking, large head and hazy. Bananas predominate the flavour, there’s not much else going on here though. Quite boring but passable.

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured this into a standard pint glass, so this may explain why the head quickly evapourated into nothing. Not much head. Cloudy orange colour, with carbonated bubbles. In the flavour: Lots of bread and grain, citric hint, oranges are in there. Slightly metallic and a little bit watery. A very easy drink, tasty and satisfing. If it was on tap - I’d drink a lot of it.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Gold pour, large, fluffy head. Some citrus, malt, but lacking in most flavors expected in a german hefe. Drinkable, but little character.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden, hazy, tall offwhite head. Yeasty aroma. Citrus. A note of hops??? Good carbonation. Rich aroma with notes of pineapples? Bananas! Some underlying malty sweetness. Mild Hides the ABV very well. Well balanced, easy drinking (almost too easy...)
