COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This gives ERDINGER Weissbier 'crystal clear' a sparkling and refreshing character which wheat-beer lovers appreciate, especially in summer.

Alengrin (2939) - BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2015 As Erdinger Kristall. Very pure and deep golden blonde colour, cristal clear as expected, with very strong, almost champagne-like, beautiful fizz; very thick and frothy, rocky, lacing, cream white, ’pompous’ head retaining well. Grainy and wheaty aroma, a bit sourish, grassy, hints of sourdough, apple peel, cava, lightly toasted bread, pear, kiwi, wet paper, bitter honey. Crisp and fruity taste, sour berries, starfruit and unripe peach, somewhat oily, smooth mouthfeel with strong, fizzy, minerally carbonation, a bit cava- or prosecco-like ’brut’ flavour, clear and refreshing wheat sourishness lasting till deep into the finish, where it is accompanied by a soft and pleasant bready maltiness and a subtle hint of grassy hop bitterishness providing structure and balance. Not very complex, as is usually the case with these filtered Weizens, but very decent for its style, refreshing and just fit for a sunny spring afternoon like this.

WillemsUrenkel (813) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAR 5, 2015
0,5 l bottle. I will never understand, why we need a Weizen Kristall. Anyhow. Dark golden in the glass and, as expected, clear. Two finger white head. More green apple than banana on the nose. Taste is less fruity, little bit malty, low bitterness. Not really bad.

tnkw01 (1286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle. Gold in color. Gigantic, big fluffy head. Aroma was kind of like a traditional German lager. Taste was also like a German lager.

Erzengel (4967) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2015
*Old rating, best before 05-2006. Fruchtig-süßliches Weißbier. Mild, kristallweizen-typisch, frisch, nicht zu tief, leicht süßlich.

loco_gallego (217) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 15, 2015
Blonde pâle, translucide. Belle mousse blanche persistante. Au nez blé léger, épicée un petit peu sucrée banane. En bouche idem, avec le côté fruité un poil plus affirmé. Pas mal, mais un peu plate.

Towey1989 (337) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2015 Bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a thick white foamy head. Aroma is sweet of bread, yeast and banana. The taste is bittersweet of bready malt, wheat, banana and cloves. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A sweet, bready finish. Refreshing but not exciting.

VDuquerroux (549) - Airvault, FRANCE - JAN 30, 2015
Bottle, 50cL. Home. A pale golden yellow beer with a big white head ; few bubbles ; good retention. Aroma of cereal, herb, light metallic, spice. Light to medium bitter, light sweet. Light body, thin silky texture, high carbonation, dry bitter refreshing finish. Overall, average OK refreshing wheat beer.

lusikka (6874) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2014
500 ml bottle. Enjoyed at Munich, Germany. Pours a clear golden colour with a large foamy head. Aroma of white bread and wheat. Flavour of harsh grainy malts, wheat, rubber and very mild sweetness. Harsh mouthfeel and high carbonation. No complexity whatsoever. Simple and useless.

GarageBrewer80 (134) - SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2014
Flaska från SB. Ljus klar med vit skumkrona. Svag doft av gröna äpplen. Vattnig kropp med svag smak av skumbanan och gröna äpplen.

danielyabu (1351) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - DEC 15, 2014
large rocky frothy white head. excellent lacing. mostly diminishing. clear sparkling thin dark yellow body. aroma: metal, light hoppy, honey. if: light sweet. ff: light sweet bitter; average duration. palate: light medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic finish. Aroma de pilsen comercial não lembra em nada o de uma cerveja de trigo, mesmo que filtrada. Sabor metalizado, com toques de mel. Lembra uma bohemian pilsener “lite”. Nada de banana, cravo e outras características weizen no paladar.4 s
