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.

Reviewed 3/6/13. 11.2 oz bottle poured into a weizen glass. A: Pours a cloudy dark gold color. The head is a three finger white shade with that has a foamy appearance to it. Retention is really nice, too. S: Not only are the typical banana/clove estery aromas lacking here...so is just about anything else. About the only thing I really notice is a mild cherry-like sweetness and the faintest hint of wheat. Not really a bad aroma - after all, how can a nose so weak be considered bad? T: Well, the aroma suggested a feeble flavor, and that’s what I got. While the lack of weizen esters allows the opening wheat quality and finishing noble hops to shine through more strongly, it really drinks like a dinky-ass US wheat ale (think Widmer Hefeweizen) than a proper German hefeweizen. Okay, so a slight banana presence builds up after a few sips, but by then it’s too little, too late. Just a boring beer in all flavor aspects. M: The texture does a good job of staying out the way of the lack of flavor by finishing with a mildly clean dryness to it. I could do without the budding wet, syrupy linger, but I’ll certainly give it points for being refreshing and crisp. O: A score this low would suggest a mediocre-to-poor effort riddled with flaws - however this isn’t actually flawed, just devoid of any good weizen characteristics...or any characteristics for that matter. This one is certainly easy to down, at least. But when both Sierra Nevada and Weihenstephaner make weizens that are both superbly drinkable AND full of character, why should you care about this one?

Classic. A nice refreshing and fruity wheat beer.good clean flavor, not over powering with banana flavors, goes down well, pair with a bratwurst or cheese pretzel

Very cloudy hazy beer. You can’t even look trough. The cloudiness isn’t very appealing. It looks like it had a substance of a smoothy. Of course, this isn’t the fact. Is smells like a mixture of... orange juice and beer. The taste confirms this. They could have called it Radler, and no one bats an eye. Especially after drinking a Triple D’Anvers. A pitty.

MMJL (169) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAR 20, 2015
Z butelki czuć przede wszystkim banany, potem słód i drożdże. W zależności od szerokości szklanki kolor to słomka aż do złota – piwo jest w typowy dla weizenów sposób mętne. Piana wysoka, idealnie biała, w miarę drobna, szybko opada. Aromat ze szkła to w pierwszej kolejności goździki a może nawet i inne owoce – przyjemny, ale delikatny. W smaku …ŻELAZO!!! Ale w jakiej ilości… Jakbym pił zupę z gwoździ – ten posmak w ogóle przesłania wszystko inne. Bawarczycy chyba sobie powinni tanki wyremontować bo im najwyraźniej zardzewiały. Dopiero po kilku łykach, kiedy już się nieco do tego metalu przyzwyczaiłem, zacząłem rozróżniać inne nuty w tym piwie – słodycz, owocowość – bardzo przyjemne i typowe dla stylu. Brakuje jedynie kwaśności, która powinna być zamaskowana słodkim zapachem. Gdyby Erdinger miał w lepszym stanie tanki to byłby całkiem niezły weizen

Tretinková fľaša z Billy. Svetlejšia kalná farba, hustá pena, pekná kvasnicovo ovocná vôňa. Vyšia rezkosť, chuť menej výrazná, ale príjemná, pšenicovo-ovocná na konci s nádychom alkoholu.

Fris witbiertje met fruitige tint. Afdronk is fris en blijft niet lang hangen. Maar dat hoeft ook niet bij wit bier. Heerlijk biertje

Medium fast fading foam, cloudy yellow color. This tastes more like lager than Weissbier. Too much carbonation, too small amount of aroma. Feels diluted.
