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.

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.

A low citrusy aroma is detectable. The pour is a cloudy yellow with a small white head. The flavor has some citrusy quality with a light dry finish on the palate.

eaglefan538 (2925) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 5, 2006
This one poured with the typical huge head and standard cloudy yellow appearance. However, the aroma was lacking any bananas and cloves with only a note of citrus. Flavor followed suit, altough some level of spicing did come through (not sure what it was). A nice wheat beer, but sure to be beaten.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2006
Pours cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma was weak but there were some hints of banana and cloves plus a bit of breadiness. Taste was watery at first followed by hints of banana and lemon. Not much going on with the palate. I wanted banana and lemon and I did not get that here. Not a bad Hefeweizen but I’ve had quite a few better ones.

TomDecapolis (4609) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 31, 2006
Pours a very hazy golden with a smaller white head that did not really retain. Aroma of sweet malt, lemon, wheat, banana bread and cereal. A bit light compared to others of the same style. Flavor of citrus, pilsner malt, cereal, tingly carbonation.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2006
(0.5L Bottle) Pours hazy with think white head. Aroma is somewhat lacking compared to other similar Hefeweizens. Also lacks some of the fruity flavoring. All in all, not bad... but nothing special either.

bourne (161) - Suwon, SOUTH KOREA - MAY 27, 2006
This was an alright hefeweizen although I didnt think It was outstanding. White foamy head, opaque dark yellow body and a very yeasty aroma.
