2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy gold pour with a tall, pillowy off white head. Aroma is full of banana, bready yeast, wheat, toast and a touch of spicy hops. Flavor is pretty loaded with banana up front, followed by wheat, lemon, floral notes, dusty grain, an odd tartness, sweet, yeasty bread dough, toast, and herbal and spicy hops. Light body, heavy and fairly sharp carbonation and dry feel throughout. Not very good as far as real Hefe’s go, hits a lot of the right notes, but doesn’t really pull it off. The palate goes a long way toward killing its score.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle as limited edition "Erdinger Weissbier 3 + 1" pack bought at Wellcome Superstore in Sheung Shui.
Looks: Cloudy hazy dull straw golden colour with ring of dirt-like yeast sediments; Two-and-a-half finger head with crumpety off-white foam which lasted for 3 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing and fizzy carbonation.
Aroma: Fragment and smooth malt, with strong wheat and tartness, banana, pineapples, vanilla, caramel, strong sugar, ester, strong cloves, spices, strong yeast, light lemon and faint grass.
Taste: Light sweet malt, with light vanilla, thin pineapples, light caramel, wheat, very light tartness, ester, phenolic, cloves, strong spices, yeast, very light lemon and faint grassy hops.
Body: Close to medium body. Quite slick and slightly creamy palate.
Mouth Feel: Pretty smooth and creamy, through not as rich as
Neumarkter Lammsbräu Weisse. Very strong carbo and spice has a naughty tinkling feel, very enjoyable! Light maltyness, strong wheat with very low tartness. Light touch of pineapple, clove and caramel give it a shiny refreshing vibe. Fun fun fun!
Hoppiness: Light lemon and faint grassy hops in nose and taste. Bitterness is minimal for a mostly lemony and wheaty low astringent finish.
After Taste: Fairly dry. Smooth and refreshing to mouth.
Comments: Say if this is an “Old Style” weissbier, then it’s bubbly, creamy, (slightly tropical) fruity past from the formulaic banana and tart wheat present. It’s quite simple really, but it’s considerably more creamy yet refreshing the same time. Should be perfect for Summer but enjoyable anytime. Very nice!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a big foamy head on a cloudy straw body.
The aroma is muted lemon and earthy. Nice.
The taste starts with mild lemon bitter, watery, a little spice and finishes with a mild lemon bitterness.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
It doesn’t have a lot of flavor but not bad.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,5 l bottle from REWE in Bonn. Cloudy golden-yellow with an orange touch, creamy white head. Weak aroma of yeast and banana. Taste is more intense: banana, yeast, grains, bread, a bit metallic as well. Slightly sour. Average carbonation, medium to full body. Somewhat musty finish. Surely not perfect but a solid Weizen. A bit boring but highly quaffable.
