The Premium Weissbier at the top of its class. Not only in the context of the Erdinger assortment Erdinger Weissbier with fine yeast applies undisputed as the classical authors, as the white beer absolutely. It is brewed with fine yeast after a delivered prescription and naturally strictly after the Bavarian purity requirement. Today still without the traditional bottle fermentation one does not do here: Three to four weeks it lasts, until the Erdinger Weissbier with fine yeast matured. For the production only finest raw materials are used. Experience of many years and constant quality controls guarantee beyond that the unmistakable taste. A Weissbier for all, those the unforgettable good taste love.

(500 ml bottle at Henriksberg, Gothenburg) Shady light straw yellow color. Huge white creamy head. Small fruity scent, not as much banana as I’m used to, still fresh. Fresh typical wheat beer taste, fresh mouth feel. Sweet after taste. Low to no bitterness.

Draught (Bavarian Beer House EC1): Cloudy gold with a long lasting white head. Light banana and vanilla nose. Flavour has notes of bubblegum and vanilla, but is mostly just fresh grains. Simple wheat.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2007 Erdinger Hefe-weizen Pint bottle Bottled Spring 05, consumed 09/06 (revisited 06/07, best before 01/08) Medium pour in a pint glass, weizen Poured a hazy gold with a large fizzy 1 inch mostly lasting white head. Lively carbonation with small bubbles. Smelt of yeasty dough and light orangey hops. Taste was upfront light sweet oranges and slight bitterness, followed by a more pronounced orangey sweetness and a hint of flowery hops and bitter dough in a short finish. Mouthfeel was light, watery/dry, and overly fizzy. Overall, an excellent yeasty German Hefe-Weizen that offers a lot on taste, although a bit hidden by the carbonation. Revisit: A lot more refreshing on a hot summer day, but still fairly standard. Revisit: more

Bottle from the LCBO. Hazy straw with a thick long lasting frotty head. Subltle aroma of wheat, yeast and bread. Taste is similar, with a hint of banana. Very smooth, with a medium body. Very good for the style.

Very smooth, very clean and very sweet. This beer is definitely better than many (that I’ve had) in this style. I had several Hefe-Weizens before and they all tasted too strongly like bananas. I don’t really like that characteristic in my beer. This one does not go overkill on that; it does have that hint of banana but it is buried and subtle. This is incredibly sweet. WOW. It is sugar wheat sugar wheat sugar sugar wheat. It made me think instantly of sweet bread. I poured this slowly into my Weizen Glass, being careful not to include the yeast and sediment. On to the breakdown: Appearance: Nice pale yellow with a hint of orange, huge sudsy head. Lots of tiny carbonation bubbles lasted the duration of the beer showing how active it is. Smell: Sugar, wheat, vanilla, and just a hint of banana. Taste: This is so amazingly sweet I was surprised. Wheat, malt, vanilla, banana and a variety of fruits are things I could pull out in this very well blended and balanced flavor. There is just a hint of hops in the crisp dry swallow. Mouthfeel & Drinkability: Wheat beers tend to be thin in my experience but this was not too thin. The sugar element along with the carbonation, helped it fill out into a satisfying medium body beer. It is very lightweight in your mouth and in your stomach. This makes it very easy to keep drinking more. I never had Erdinger Hefe-Weizen before, but for some reason I got 2 bottles. I just finished the second while writing this review, (I should have gotten a six-pack). Obviously a refreshing, drinkable beer. Hope this is helpful. Cheers!

Nice yeasty and hoppy aroma with a hint of roasted grains and malt to it. Not a real intense range of hefe-weizen-type flavors... some wheat, malt, hops even. I didn’t think this was a truly great example of the style, in terms of the flavors. No spiciness. No clove. No banana. No bubblegum. Not awful, but better choices exist.

bottle from asda, very nice beer to look at, seriously frothy head, very firm too and lasted almost down the whole glass. citrus on the nose but peach and yeast in the mouth, quite a complex beer to get to grips with but it turns out to be a very refreshing drink indeed

Pours a golden color with a thick frothy head. Aroma strong in yeast and lemon. Flavor is quick on the drawn with that yeast and lemon, followed by tones of orange, cloves, and dull wheat.

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2006
500ml bottle, 5.3% a/v Pours with an unexpectedly large head which sticks around for the entirety, and a sexy opaque gold colour. The smell is yeasty and some citrus to e smelled. The taste is of some fruity notes such as peach and apricots, with a complex finish. Very nice mouthfeel.. This is a pretty good beer!

Bottle. Unclear yellow with huge head. Fruity and wheat aroma. Flavour is sweet of fruit and malt. Not the best weissbier, but it is still a great beer.
