4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
A native German friend of mine told me this was his favorite beer when I asked about the best one to try and given our general different tastes in beer in general, I had some doubts, but one taste and I had to admit this was one of the best beers I had yet tasted. I’ve since tried a half dozen other hefe-weizens and Erdinger is still the smoothest and most plesant tasting one I’ve tried to date.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap: Pours a cloudy golden color with hints of orange that has a medium size frothy off-white head. Aroma is wheat with hints of citrus and lemon. Initial flavor is sweet and fruity leaving a mild bitter finish. The watery body make it easy drinking but not very enjoyable.

My guess is that this is the "Pyramid" of Germany when it comes to beer. Pours hazy gold with a decent head. Lemony aroma with some yeast. Taste was pretty flat, some wheat, some citrus, but really watery. Get something else.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had a 16 oz. draft. Poured a golden orange, with a nice head at first, that unfortunately dissipated very quickly. Hazy appearance and a citrus-lemon aroma. Decent tasting and okay finish, but nothing spectacular about this beer, but then, I’m not much of a Hefe fan in general.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber clowdy yellow. Persistent head, creamy aspect, with medium sized bubbles. Some dispersed bubbles go to the top slowly. Soflty citric aroma, a bit fruit aroma. Pleasing citric taste. In the aroma, get clearer a fresh cereal barley background. Thin, almost like water, astringent.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
I don’t know why, but I’ve been drinking a fair number of German wheats lately. This one was average at best compared to its peers. Hazy yellow, big fizzy head. Not a great deal of aroma-- maybe some faint banana. Palate was also fizzy, and on the watery side. Muted flavours of banana and spice. It was okay.
