I think the best and only Weißbier in a bottle, but unexpected flavour...... Billvoss69 (8) - Pinhais, BRAZIL - MAR 24, 2014 does not count

This is hefeweizen that doesn’t need a glass. Normally hefeweizen is poured into a glass and the yeast is rousted with a swirl of the bottle and then poured in. You can do that with Erdinger Champ, but you don’t have to. The bottle is designed so this beer is ready "to drink straight from the bottle". There is a dye cut into the bottom of the glass that fits the crown of another bottle. You stick one bottle into the dye of the bottom of another bottle, and roust the yeast by giving the bottles a few quick turns. This rousts the yeast, and you can drink your Erdinger Champ straight from the bottle. Nice, if you are in a pinch, and have no glassware, but I enjoy seeing the beauty of a hefeweizen, as well as drinking it.
Erdinger Champ when chosen to be poured into a weiss glass pours to a beautiful, hazy, bright golden color with a rocky and dense white head, and a very vibrant carbonation. The nose is crisp and fruity with aromas of malted wheat, pear, banana, and slight spicy clove aromas. The palate is firm with lots of really good tart wheat malt flavors, and some estery fruity notes. Erdinger Champ finishes with more wheaty and estery flavors with a delicious banana and clove taste that lingers.
This is an outstanding hefeweizen, and a classic example of the style. I tried a few straight from the bottle, but I really think the best way to enjoy hefeweizen is in a proper weiss glass. This is a tart, fruity, crisp and refreshing beer, that makes a perfect warm weather thirst quencher. Try this after a little yard work, or match it with a late morning brunch of weiss wurst sausages.
