2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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?

Een Weizen met erg weinig smaak. Bier ziet er in het glas perfect uit maar mist iets : smaak.

@ Röhällavägen. Flaska från Systembolaget (23:-). Brödig och något fruktig, vete, en del kryddighet, jästtoner, liten beska, något tunn i smaken.

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.

Tap at hole in wall, Waterloo. Pours a hazy straw. Light lemon wheat aroma. Light body, full carbonation. Some yeastiness, lemon, bready. Inoffensive. Fine.

Will always have amazing memories of this beer from my tour of the brewery (complete with full Bavarian breakfast) in 2010. Still the best brewery tour I’ve ever done. Anyway, this is a classic I’ve had many times. Pours pretty yellow with a huge weizen head going over the top of the glass. Aroma a bit weaker than the other greats, and the palate is maybe thinner / not as chewy, but this is still an excellent beer.

Heerlijk troebel weizenbier. Licht romig en lekker zoetig. Heerlijk ijskoud om van te genieten. Met een zacht aroma.

Butelka. Kolor cytrynowy, mętny. Piana jak na pszenicę przystało. W aromacie banany i cytrusy Smak jest rześki, kwaskowy.

Bue à la pression. A vrai dire, ça ressemble beaucoup à de l’eau légèrement aromatisée... Très peu d’intérêt.
