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.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2009 Erdinger Dunkel is one of my favorite brews so I can’t wait to try this one, Erdinger Hefe-weizen. I Was pleasantly surprised that it was no more costly than all the other brews in my beer store. The cost was just $2 for a brown 11.2 oz bottle. Gently pouring the beer into my mug, it first looks like any other ubiquitous clear pale yellow american beer. Then comes the aesthetic impression; near the bottom of the pour the yeast starts to make its appearance. Swirling, hypnotizing clouds and particles of yeast. Now the brew is cloudy like I expect from a good hefe. The aroma is that of uncooked bread dough and citrus, perhaps lemons. No head on this brew but there is a constant stream of rising carbonation from within the brew. The commencement on the tongue is pleasurable, it is well behaved and nonoffensive. Beautiful above average carbonation greets the back of your throat. The taste is much better than troegs dream weaver and penns weizen. Very little if any bitterness can be detected in this smooth tasting brew. Not much similarity to the american lager, tho very gentlemanlike in its flavors. After many drinks, I think I am beginning to detect just an ever so slight mild linger. Very good and very nice, everybody should have a chance to taste this at least once. Has the personality of an orval with a hefe flavor and personality.

A fine Hefeweizen Brew. Very nice hazy yellow color and off white half inch + / - head that doesn’t disappear . Classic yeasty-bready aroma, banana, clove, and slight citrus flavor. Great finish with tones of sweetness and yeast , a truly fine beer. I would consider the Hefeweizen for it’s drinkability with a little swager. Erdinger should make no apologies for tradition here.

Very low fruitiness, almost lager-like. Delightful taste, but way too tasteless. A weiss for the masses.

The first hefe-weizen I ever tasted, and it wasn’t half bad. Lovely soft texture with a light smell. Nice, faint banana taste with wheat lingering after a smooth mouthful. Looks good, has a nice fluffy head.

Okay, I’ve had more than a couple of different hefeweizens lately and this tastes less like one than anything I’ve had. Yes, it’s a dark wheat beer....but it doesn’t smell like a Hefe, it doesn’t taste like a hefe. Sorry, very bland and very forgetable

Yelow-Gold pour with a thick fluffy head. It has a smooth wheat taste and very little bitterness. I liked it a lot, and I’ll probably come back to this one again.

Bottle. Nice hazy golden with a big creamy mostly lasting white head. Frash aroma of malt, yeast, bit fruitiness and citrus. Flavour is fresh and clean with good maltiness, wheat, some yeast, citrus, bit fruity with some bitterness in the finish. A good Hefeweizen though not like a Franzizkaner.
