2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. A cloudy blonde/orange beer, with a big head. The aroma is wheaty and fruity. The flavour is sweet, with a touch of bitterness at the end. The body is light. Not much interesting, I prefer the darker version.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had it on tap at a German restaurant. It’s not quite as thick as other hefeweizens I’ve had, but that’s fine. This particular evening I wasn’t in the mood for a really meaty beer anyway. Very smooth, inoffensive, and good taste. The taste is slightly more citrus-y than the average hefe, which is refreshing. The hops are nicely balanced, and stay in the background of the taste. It went very well with my bratwurst, spaetzle and sauerkraut, whereas a heavier beer may have overwhelmed the flavors. Even my wife, who does not like beer, liked this beer. Overall, it’s a good, smooth, balanced beer that has its place and time. I’ll come back for more.

Nice 50 cl bottle. I think it was the first German Hefe-Weizen I ever had, so I can’t judge it very good. It was quite nice, but I like Belgian Whites better, they’re more special and different from pilseners.

Not a start performer on the hefe list, but certainly one that warrants recognition. Exceptional head and lacing with a very clear filtered appearance. Extremely drinkable with a very smooth and satisfying palate. There is not a whole lot of complexity with this beer, just good tasting smooth finish refreshing enjoyment.

,5 bottle. pours a bit thin, small head. not much hefe really, more of a thin coating at the bottom of the bottle =( . the little pieces of yeast look like lingering streamers instead of mixing in. Has a very fresh spicy lemon aroma. Nothing really special about the taste, more refreshing than bodied. more citrus flavor than the usual spicy banana flavor. It is rather heavily carbonated for my taste. Bit of a bitter bite too. Not bad by any means if you’re looking for something to gupl down at the beer garden. Not really one for enjoying at home though.

I tried it off tap here in New Zealand and it is unusual to see wheat beer on tap at all. Even more unusual to see something imported (this is a country where having Stella and Heineken on tap is weird remember). Gave this beer a shot and it has to be said it is fairly inoffensive. A good quaffing beer but not the most spectacular wheat beer I have ever tasted. Yes I would go back for seconds.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow, tall white head. Medium complex aroma with yeast, wheat and notes of bananas. More yeast and wheat in the flavour, bananas, and a touch of lemon too. Very nice.

Bottle. Translucent golden yellow coloring. Bountiful 4" head. Wheaty, yeasty, hints of banana in aroma. Similar in flavor with stronger emergence of lime/lemon. Quality hefe.

Draft/Bottle. Your everyday weissbier. If you are new to hefe-weizen, this is a good place to start. There are many some offerings better and many worse than Erdinger.
