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?

como (175) - POLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Butelka 08.2015. Piana śnieżnobiała, bardzo wysoka, sprężysta, bardzo trwała. Kolor słomkowy, jak na pszeniczniaka klarowne (brak osadu w butelce). Aromat nie powalający - minimalny goździk i minimalny aldehyd. Smak wodnisty, niczym się nie wyróżniający. Goryczki praktycznie brak. Wysycenie wysokie.

Licht troebelig met mooie schuimkraag. Bananen in de neus, licht bitterig met korte afdronk. Het echte Weissenbier!

Mooi goud bier met een flinke kop witte schuim erop. Wat tonen van banaan en wat pikants zoals peper misschien. Smaakt prima.

BillWyce (740) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Pours hazy golden color with a creamy, 3-finger white head. Lemony aroma mixed with notes of grass and black pepper. Some banana-like esters as well. Body is light and mildly oily. Light astringency to the finish. Taste matches the aroma- lemon, with notes of banana and grass. Some yeast shows at the back.

metalspice (112) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2014
Tåkete lyst oransj med høyt hvitt skum som forsvinner fort. Gjær og mandarin i duften. Smaken er flyktig med hint av gress og frukt. Fint tilpasset kullsyre. Husker denne som bedre.

SznycelWagen (3) - POLAND - NOV 12, 2014 does not count
Green apple aroma, something like pickled cabbage, cant call this but it has very nice aroma. Gold, hazy and sparkling a little. Low head but it comprises fine bubbles. No bitter, light sweet and sour. Medium body, thin texture, a little fizzy, astringent long watery finish.

Pours golden yet hazy as expected for a Hefe. Bread nose. Light to medium mouthfeel with good carbonation. Hints of wheat, Clove and Banana. Easy drinking

Tra le weiss è sicuramente una delle migliori. di buon colore, ottima schiuma, è molto beverina ma non troppo acidula
