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

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2005
(Bottled) Clear golden color with a medium, quickly fading head. Sweetish, buttery aroma - no real signs of a hefeweizen. Sweetish-malty, acidic and fruity flavor with some wheatiness towards the finish. Light to medium-bodied palate with foamy carbonation. A quite plain, uninteresting, not very weizen-like brew.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2005
Golden in colour with a thick offwhite head. Lighht lemony malt with notes of wet dog. Dry malty taste, with fruity banana esters, but the beer has seen better days, as some light cardboard notes are present in this one (about 1 yr old). Still, good little bitterness come out in end, and light alcohol.

hefevice (72) - Brisbane beer desert, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2005
Bottle. I don’t believe this, finally a kristall that I actually like better than its hefe stable-mate. Looks good on the pour, a clear light gold with a dense white head and plenty of life. On the nose while it is more attenuated in the phenols than you would expect from a hefe, there is plenty of ester (banana) there on top of a good malty foundation. The taste starts sweet and malty as expected, there is a very slight hint of the banana in the aroma, and it finishes with just the right amount of bitterness and a little toastiness. Although it is more subtle than you would expect from a hefe, this is more than made up for by the balance. The carbonation is much better than the hefe version as well, which improves the mouthfeel considerably. This is a very refreshing and well balanced beer.

madquacker (1041) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2005
Good but doesn’t hold a candle to the other Erdinger. Still bloody good though.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 1, 2005
500 ml bottle. Almost clear, slightly translucent golden body, thick lasting smooth creamy head...grassy, faintly caramel-accented nose, touch of lemon...malty, lightly swet body, bit of late sourdough...fairly dull, on the whole.

ALLOVATE (2407) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2005
Tasted from the bottle, into a tall stein. Rose a humungous white head of foam that erupted over the sides of the glass, and lasted ’til the very end. The body a clear gold, with evident high carbonation. Subtle, almost too subtle, sweet pasty wheat and banana aroma. Highly effervescent across the tongue, this has the body of a German pilsner, is quite sweet upfront and refreshingly crisp into the short swallow. Sadly lacking in lactic sourness, yeast, wheat zest and the normally associated wheat bier esters and phenols. I am no real fan of filtered wheat beers, and this is no exception, but there is nothing bad I could say about it.
