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.

Rune (9064) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2006
For the bronze final in the FIFA World Cup on Saturday eve (08.07.2006) on TV, I picked two German beers. During the first half I had 500ml of Erdinger Weissbier. Creamy white head. Hazzy yellow. Fresh, but light wheat aroma. Rich banana flavour combined with grain and notes of yeast. Soft carbonation. Overbearingly sweet. Straightforward. And no scores at the Gottlieb-Daimler- Stadion, so I went for a stronger beer...

This is a very good beer. I purchased it from a local beer and wine shop called the Cellar. I think I have a taste for wheat beers and this was by far a good beer. I also noticed that this beer leaves a very good lingering aftertaste.

Cloudy orange, rocky off white head. Overipe pear aroma. Cloves, banana, low carbonation. Not a lot of flavor. Smooth finish.

A pretty decent wheat beer but probably the least complex wheat beer I have tried.

At several pubs in Germany. Cloudy and a nice rocky white head, as expected. I find this beer to have the leaset banana and clove aroma and flavor of all that I have had. Very distinctive whaet grain aroma and flavor dominate, much like an american wheat beer.

Light golden head. Soapy nose with bananananananas. Classic bready yeast banananananananananana puree with a touch of chalk. Very full in the mouth with lively carbonation. Stylistically bland, lacking in spice, and featuring some off flavors.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 12, 2006
Tasted 11/06/2006, with Fritha. 500ml bottle from Island Bay New World. Murky yellow-gold. Pure white head balloons out of the glass in a classic germen weizen style, then thins significantly and lingers. Laces slightly; champagne effervescence. Wheat and slightly worty on the nose, with gentle spicy esters. More wheat in the mouth, with sweet lolly malt; spicy esters and tart malt dominate the middle, with banana, candi and cloves in the finish. Strong carbonation, quite prickly, with a light-medium weight. Polished and good drinking but not entirely inspiring. Maybe it’s just time for a palate rest - a few days without beer.

Tranquillity (1450) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2006
500ml bottle. Very honey-like colour. Very nice honey aroma. The taste is a bit more bitter, but with a sweet finish.

lethe (177) - New York, USA - JUN 7, 2006
Frothy head atop a hazy body with visible carbonation. Palate and body is a bit thin. Nose and flavor are a template of the usual hefe characteristics: some clove, banana, chewy yeast and appetizing quality. This being said, it is all a bit muted. Maybe due to freshness, or just not one of the top tier hefes. Enjoyable in a prosaic way.

Not much smell or cloudiness. German wheat beers are so much better than American ones. Still, one can only get so excited about the style. A little banana in it. Not bad, but not amazing.
