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.

Pours with an immense white head, audibly crackling as it fades rather quickly to a sudsy froth over a thick hazed, golden/amber body showcasing moderate-to-heavy carbonation. Banana bread aroma, albiet a loaf that has been sitting out overnight. Notes of cinnamon and allspice. Dank undertones. Thick, full body with tail-end chalkiness. Yeasts and malts meld nicely with the same-as-above bananas vs. breadiness, but a lemon-tart wash clears (or covers?) these flavors quickly. The impression that lasts is sadly that of 50/50 (lemon-lime soda). I was saving this for the occasion of saluting the late, great <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=8 as I passed him within the ranks of the Weizenvolker, but I’m now rather glad the event slipped my mind as this would have been a mediocre epitaph.

Meh. Still in search of a good craft-brew hefeweizen. Not much offered in aroma or flavor.

Very nice looking beer. Hazy wheat color with a large white head. Aroma is spices, yeast, some citrus, and wheat. Not all that exciting. Flavor is light, but refreshing. Spice, malt, yeast and some sweet fruits, though none of the flavors are all that strong. Nice bubbly mouth. Nothing too exciting, but not bad.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2007 Poured cloudy orange, with a bit of head. A much lighter tasting hefeweizen than I’m used to and it is much better. More bubble gummy, banana, and light fruity orange flavors, rather than the spiced clove, coriander scent and taste I don’t care for. Overall, probably my favorite German Hefeweizen, and one I could see actually getting again, unlike pretty much any other hef.

Bottle. Pale yellow golden colour, small carbon bubbles and small thick head that does not dissipate. Aroma isn’t distinctive and smells mostly of wheat. Very strong banana taste. Quite light and smooth.

Goodness, never realised this was a needed rate until tonight. Tap, Aikmans Cellar Bar, St Andrews. Cloudy straw colour with the huge white head expected. Some fruity citrus, quite light on the nose, some spices, cinnamon and banana, cloves and a touch of paprika. Flavour is watery but full of banana, citrus and dull spice. Quite lax on the palate. Enjoyable, but nothing special.
