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.

Served in a beautiful, tall Erdinger glass. Golden haze, with a fine head. Tastes of wheat and hay, sweet with mild spices. Would drink again.

Fris Duits witbier. Redelijk licht geel van kleur waar veel Duits witbier wat donkerder is. Licht van smaak en niet al te zoet met fruit tonen.

Probada en botella de 500 ml adquirida en Pinta Point Belgrano, Buenos Aires. Buena weissbier. Típico color amarillo claro, opaco y con espuma medio alta. 7/10. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from AmaCerto ship. Bright yellow pour from .5l bottle with tons of white head. Wheat, malt, corn, citrus and bubblegum aroma. Flavour is very sweet and earthy with high quantities of hay and malt in your face. Medium body but deftly sweet...can’t drink too many of these.

Antonio369 (147) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2016
0,5 l bottle, served in weizen glass. Poured cloudy golden with 3 finger slightly off white head. Aromas of cloves, banana, spices, vanilla, caramel, candy sugar. Taste: banana, cloves, spice, vanilla, caramel. Typical hefeweizen but not the best out there. A very watery body. Yeast does produce that typical weizen aromas and taste but very weak and to a poor effect. Especially the taste is lacking. After the initial banana/cloves/spices there is that dry cardboard taste that is very much present. Not the best hefeweizen out there.

Bue 7 mois avant DLC aux Canaries. Biere blonde trouble avec gros col de mousse de fines bulles blanches a tres bonne tenue. Carbonation impressionnante. Pas d’arome detecte. Piquante en bouche avec cette carbonation. Final sur le citron en 1ere bouche, puis le ble en 2eme bouche. Assez douce, et un peu acidulee. Pas d’amertume. Agreable apres une journee de plage et soleil.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2016 Erdinger is the largest wheat beer brewery in the world. Their signature weissbier is typically available almost everywhere but its a fine example of what a nice hefeweizen should be like. I had it from cask in a large Erdinger weizen glass, chilled to around 0 degrees. Colour is light orange and it has a smooth white head. Aroma is banana, yeast, with some zest. In terms of taste and palate, it?s very smooth. There are some banana notes but not as much as people make out. There?s a bread-y presence as well and definitely some nice pumpkin hints as well as butternut squash. The finish is fresh and very sharp. It?s less pure than weihenstephaner or Franziskaner but I enjoy the overall taste of this more than the aforementioned adversaries.
