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

scotty (1128) - SCOTLAND - JAN 9, 2007
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)

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.

rauchbier (3731) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2007
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

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JAN 3, 2007
50 cl bottle via trade with IrishBoy - Pours a clear golden color with a large two and half finger thick white head. lots of thick stringy lacing. Aroma is apple and banana. Flavor is esters and light wheat malt. This beer kinda coats the tongue. Light, crisp body. A decent hefe. Thanks Richard.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2010 Bottle/draft. I enjoy ordering this when regular weissbier seems like too much. A little lighter in palate and flavor compared to normal Erdinger. Always my favorite at Saloniki.

I see that most comments are either negative or neutral. Well, among the ones I have tasted, this one, I like quite enough!

not a typical weissbier. not near as smooth and "tasty" as I like in a weissbier. you can taste a bit of fruit, but it’s not near as powerful as the rich flavor that is normally characteristic of weissbier. rather boring and bland, reach for the franziskaner instead. has a nice full mouth feeling though.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2006
Clear golden with a frothy white head. Odd sweetness in the aroma. Also in the taste: it’s sugary and honeyed, followed by a touch of citrus sourness, some breadiness at the back of the throat and a slightly dry finish. Quite good.

PorterPounder (6894) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2006
Tallahassee, Fl. - Market Square Liquors - 500 ml bottle. Medium gold/light orange pour with a creamy, frothy, sticky white head. Clean aroma, hints of lemon, very faint bubblegum. Flavor is clean and refreshing and not overburdened with too much banana flavor which I’m beginning to tire of. Has more of a barley maltiness to it than most wheats. Some bready notes in there as well. Finishes with a citrusy bent. Mouthfeel has just the right amount of spritziness. Nice surprise - passed this by several times thinking I had already rated it.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 20, 2006
Bottled. Clear blonde colour, enormous head. Wheaty aroma and fruity aroma, but it seems very bland to me. Fruityness also in the flavours. with only light hop presence. Not exceptional, but better than the aroma. The body is too watery for me. Not a beer I’ll have again.
