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.

3fourths (8464) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Poured into a weizen glass, it’s appearance is a rather murky and somewhat light yellow and orange - soft in appearance, initially with a large, billowy head that slowly shrinks down into a thin white layer, without much lacing, disappointingly. The nose is sweet banana, clove and mandarin oranges. Sugars and esthery spices from the yeast give this hefeweizen a profoundly fruity, sharp aroma. Initially it’s lightly sweet, somewhat lacking a depth of flavors, and it rolls over the tongue like olive oil - very slick and somewhat watery. Dare I say this is a bland beer after having it smell so wonderful? With a light but harsh roughness to the palate, it finishes empty and leaves me wanting something further. An OK wheat beer, with a geniune aroma that drives anticipation, but in the end it shows itself as a pretender.

Skinnyviking (7501) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2006
Bottle. White lasting head. Golden unclear body with quite a good deal of carbon dioxide. Banana aroma with a sharp edge. Guess this was a bit too cold because normallly the flavor is relatively sweet. This time bitterness was dominant.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2006
(12.29.05) One pint, 0.9 fl oz brown bottle purchased from DiCarlo’s, Mundelein, IL. 5.3% ABV. Hazy golden weisse beer having a large long-lasting white head with good lacing. No discernable carbonation. Honey and spicy clove aroma. Medium bodied that starts with light malt sweetness and spicy clove flavor. Crisp finish with pleasant malt aftertaste. An enjoyable, clean tasting and palette refreshing brew.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2006
50 cl bottle. Yeast at the bottom. Cloudy yellow colour with a big thich head. Nice aroma of bread, banana and some yeast. Also hints of banana in the flavour with wheat and yeast, quite good, but not great.

Bottle. Hazy yellow in colour. White long lasting head. Weak aroma of wheat. A little sweet malty aroma with some citrus and banana hints. Not one of the best weissbier out there.

Best Hefe-Weizen that I have ever tried, because this one, in difference to many other wheat beers, leaves your stomach undamaged.

thewolf (11349) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2007 Despite it being an easy-to-get beer, it’s not undeserved of its success. A very strong flavour og wheat, that makes it a soft drink that always refreshes.

ClarkVV (3970) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 19, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2007 Best before end 12/2005 bottle consumed on 12/16/2005. Pours a hazy copper-goldenrod color. Slightly muted in tone, not as shimmering and light-tinted as the style demands, I believe. The head is initially large and fluffy (white), well-retained, but lacking any lacing. Carbonation is seemingly low, and only sparse bubbles rise lazily to the surface. Aroma: Very dry wheat. Creamy, lightly biscuity, with white sourdough and just a faint pinch of lemon juice. Bananas are noticeable, but are weak and drowned out in the strong yeast dryness and even stronger wheat dryness. Just bland and doughy. No lively bubblegum, clove or citrus zest and no trace of any honey-like malts. A touch salty and rather stale smelling. Very weak in strength as well. Flavor seems to confirm that this bottle is either A) much passed its prime (though it is still within in the best before date) or B) not a well-made weisse. I’d hope to think the former. The low carbonation seems to be a good indicator that perhaps this has been heated too much at some point and sat out for too long a period of time. Doughy, lightly grainy malts are briefly sweet, but passing completely to a strong wheat creaminess in texture brought on by a huge dry wheat flavor. Bit more of saltiness/seltzer water. Sponge bread, hint of bananas and lemons. No clove, hops or bubble gum and the mouthfeel is sluggish, the texture loose. No alcohol apparency. Would like to try a fresher bottle for sure. 4/4/5/2/8
Draught weizen glass at Beacon Street Pub. on 6/22/07
Much improved, so I’m going to change the rating to reflect this experience. Must have been too old a bottle previously. This still showed a golden-hay colored body with a moderate amount of head, light lacing.
Wheaty with soft honey, lemon and light bubble gum. Not your typical blast of bubble gum or clove and not all that doughy or yeasty (in terms of actual yeast blandness, not ester production). Probably filtered and then redosed with yeast? I dont know. The flavor was fairly estery, but without any real acidity/doughiness, and mostly a chewy, hay-like flavor from the wheat and barley. Interesting, refreshing and a nice, light, drinkable rendition. Clean, with a fair amount of wateriness, but nothing out-of-style.
