2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2008 First rating
(50 cl bottle from Systembolaget)
Clear straw yellow color with a huge lasting white head. Aroma is metallic, malty and sweet. Taste is metallic, malty and fat. Body is medium big with a fat touch. Medium high co2 level. Very low bitterness. Aftertaste is metallic and sweet. I really miss the estery banana, isn’t this supposed to be a German weiss? Pretty boring, just a bit better than a standard pale lager.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. As light as a weissbier can get; shiny pale yellow/golden. Big vanishing white head. Limited scents of citrus and flowery hops to the nose. Sugery with a slight fruity taste. Surely not the top end of weissbiers, but crisp and quenching.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear golden with a nice big puffy mostly lasting white head. Rather weak aroma of yeast and some fruitiness. Flavour is waterish, malty and yeasty, bit sweet, nice fruitiness. Weak hoppy bitterness in the finish. A good filtered Weissbier though the normal version is better.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Head was average with a white slightly frothy sparkle. Spare lacing. Kristal clear body and color was yellowish. Aroma was filtered like in taste compared to a “regular” Weissbier I thought. Very light notes of citrus, caramel yeast, banana, coriander, fruit and some perfume. Medium bodied and an average carbonation. Light sweet flavor with light notes of bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Tesco’s. Very heavily carbonated, poured with a huge head that settled down and dissapeared quickly. Crystal clear honey appearence in the glass. Taste is slightly sweet, slightly malty, but also quite watery. Made me burp alot when I’m drinking it. All that said however, I quite enjoyed it - it wasn’t complex in flavour but it was pleasent enough and had a nice smoothness to it. I had the bottle with my lunch (pizza, corn on the cob etc) and it worked well. Not one to sip and savour, but a good everyday drink.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A pretty beer with a fine head, but the filtering has removed some of the aroma, making this a rather boring wheat beer. Not bad, but nothing much going for it!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice lookin’ beer, good golden colour, but the rather soapy/big bubbled head loses it a point. Typical wheat beer nose of spice and malt. A slight acidity appears on the palate, it is too highly carbonated for my liking, that said,its well balanced and I’ve had a lot worse, not a classic tho’ (Tesco)

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aaahh... my seventh Erdinger. How nice. Two more and I’m done. This poured a yellow colour and a small white head. No aroma except for a vague fruity-malty hint. The taste... hmm. As usual, unimpressive, but not unpleasant. Silky smooth and kinda tasty. Some nice, low tropical fruit/bubblegum fruitiness (damn... I used almost the same expression in my notes as the rauchbier did in his rating) and faint lemon. Very faint hoppy (?) finish. A one trick pony obviously, but I think I actually like it over the regular thing. Due to its shortcomings it won’t rate higher though. Ah, well.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, from Tesco. Gold, excellent fluffy lasting white head and good condition. Slight chalky grain and trace hop aromas, chalky again in the mouth with a low yeasty sweet fruitiness and a vague creamy ester note. Short uneventful finish
