COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - JUL 5, 2007
Pours very hazy copper-orange, with a large, foamy white head. Light aroma of lemon zest, and semi-sweet wheat malt. Not really much going on flavor-wise. A bit of lemon zest, a slight hint of caramel, and wheat are all I’m getting. Palate is light/medium, a bit watery, but still has some body to it. Very small hint of peppery spice in the short and dry finish.

jefcon (1633) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2007
Hazy yellow-orange with a somewhat fizzy, large-bubble white head. Light aromas of wheat and some banana. Not a whole lot of spice. Flavors accentuate the grains and the light toast malt. A little spicier on the palate, but refreshing and crisp. A bit metallic on the finish.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 28, 2007
Pours a cloudy yellow/gold with a generous whjite head. Smells of lemons and bananas with some grape qualities. Tastes of dry malt, caramel, lemons, some tartness. Mouthfeel is watery with a slightly peppery and citrussy finish.

FastEddie (230) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 22, 2007
Tremendous, overflowing white head, but little carbonation in the mouth. Decent aroma. Hazy golden color. The flavor is decent though not as thick or as sharp as I like. I still have yet to find a better hefe than Paulaner. The most impressive thing about this beer is it’s tremendous white, foamy head.

Duster72 (117) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 21, 2007
Pours a hazy golden with a two finger head. Aroma is light malts with cloves and banana. Taste is typical hefeweizen dominated by cloves with some banana and sweet malts. Rather light and watery for me. Not particularly drinkable - I had to force myself to finish it off.

BEEJE26 (38) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2007
A very good Weissbier, with subtler taste than a Paulaner or a Hacker Pschorr.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2007
Hazy gold with 1.5cm of frothy white foam. Grainy wheat, banana, other light fruits, and a touch of airy yeast. Same flavor, mild, easy. Light body, just a bit more carbonated than balanced. Lawnmower beer.

coldbrewky (1681) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2007
On tap at the local. Fantastic match with the pizza burger. Hazy like my brain after todays marathon computer session. Head dissipates slowly even after slice of orange is dropped on top. this puppy was made for springtime! Slightly sweet and smooth as a babys bottom. I thought for a moment that my wife might like it (her being German and all).... You can lead a horse to water..... A bench mark brew. I am stumped as to why the low ratings.

5/22/2007: Erdinger Hefe-Weizen has a hazy, lemon-yellow color with a large head. The remaining crown is small, foamy, and off-white in color. The aroma is lacking and really just smells like generic beer. However, the flavor is better with some wheaty malt and subtle fruitiness. This beer has a medium-light body, is nicely balanced, and is an easy to drink hefeweizen...
