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.

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!

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.

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

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.
