(in can, 50 cl.).
The color is orange and something cloudy. The head is white, creamy and great, good lasting cord and. Has a beautiful appearance. The aroma is hoppy, with fruits. The flavor is slightly bitter, like the end. It has something sweet and pleasant in the language. The body of good. Is a very good “weisbier”, special for the strong and aromatic meals.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2011 Re-rate 5/19/11: Bottle sample at a blind Hefeweizens tasting. Hazy golden. Aroma of yeast, a bit of caramel, fruits, some graininess and slightly honey-ish malt. Sweet sugary flavor with some malt, fruits and hints of wheat. Light-medium-bodied. My 14th place of the tasting. 5/3/5/2/9=2.4
Bottle. Cloudy yellow with a big, fast-diminishing, white head. Aroma is yeasty and a bit fruity (some banana). Flavor is sweet and yeasty and the finish is very lightly acidic. Light to medium bodied. Not a good example to what a hefe-weizen could be. 5/3/5/2/10=2.5

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’m not normally a wheat beer fan. But, this beer was quite nice. Pours a light straw color, with an enormous white head. The aroma is only faintly wheat, with a bit of lemon in the aroma as well. Very light body and pretty delicate flavor of wheat and lemon. In fact, not much flavor at all. But, as I said, not being a wheat beer fan, that’s a good thing.

Had it in bottle a number of times, but best of drought. Also best in Erdinger’s tall glass. Nice hazy yellow appearance with slightly off white and reasonably sized head. Citrusy aroma, but not the high point. Wonderful fruity taste dominated by citrus, though not to the extent Hoegaarden is. Palate is quite smooth and nice amount of carbonation. Can’t forget to mention the malt to. Quite well balanced. One of my favourite Weissbiers, which I am quite the fan of.

The best beer Ive drunk so far. Malt taste is great and it has perfect dose of CO2. If you look at it you cant see through and it has to be served in a typical erdinger high, slim tap!
