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.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2006
Tap. Cloudy and bright golden / pale orange in color with a booming, frothy, whipped white head that’s one-inch tall. Freshly kneaded honey dough, some light lemon detergent, a sourdough scratch, cloves and pepper neither gain nor lose ground in the aromatic portion. Light biscuit dough taste comes out early. Yeast is the champion here, paring with sweet honey dough and a buttery nectar / honeycomb quality. Carbonation is perfectly titillating while some lemon cleanser and mild floral traits pepper lily leaves, while an ever distant cardamom characteristic brings up the rear. Ever so mild, sweet lemon grahams and a balking vanilla tootsie roll dimension round out the waxy, lively mouth feel. Margarine and Ricolla lemon drops leave a slightly distressing mark in the finish.

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.

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2006
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.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 10, 2006
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.

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.
