The Premium Weissbier at the top of its class. Not only in the context of the Erdinger assortment Erdinger Weissbier with fine yeast applies undisputed as the classical authors, as the white beer absolutely. It is brewed with fine yeast after a delivered prescription and naturally strictly after the Bavarian purity requirement. Today still without the traditional bottle fermentation one does not do here: Three to four weeks it lasts, until the Erdinger Weissbier with fine yeast matured. For the production only finest raw materials are used. Experience of many years and constant quality controls guarantee beyond that the unmistakable taste. A Weissbier for all, those the unforgettable good taste love.

Reviewed 3/6/13. 11.2 oz bottle poured into a weizen glass. A: Pours a cloudy dark gold color. The head is a three finger white shade with that has a foamy appearance to it. Retention is really nice, too. S: Not only are the typical banana/clove estery aromas lacking here...so is just about anything else. About the only thing I really notice is a mild cherry-like sweetness and the faintest hint of wheat. Not really a bad aroma - after all, how can a nose so weak be considered bad? T: Well, the aroma suggested a feeble flavor, and that’s what I got. While the lack of weizen esters allows the opening wheat quality and finishing noble hops to shine through more strongly, it really drinks like a dinky-ass US wheat ale (think Widmer Hefeweizen) than a proper German hefeweizen. Okay, so a slight banana presence builds up after a few sips, but by then it’s too little, too late. Just a boring beer in all flavor aspects. M: The texture does a good job of staying out the way of the lack of flavor by finishing with a mildly clean dryness to it. I could do without the budding wet, syrupy linger, but I’ll certainly give it points for being refreshing and crisp. O: A score this low would suggest a mediocre-to-poor effort riddled with flaws - however this isn’t actually flawed, just devoid of any good weizen characteristics...or any characteristics for that matter. This one is certainly easy to down, at least. But when both Sierra Nevada and Weihenstephaner make weizens that are both superbly drinkable AND full of character, why should you care about this one?

A Edinger está longe de ser uma Weis de 1a linha. Falta aromas, sabores e corpo. Falta o punch que tem uma Paulaner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Buğday birasına göre kokusu ağır değil. Tadında da o kada buğday alınmıyor. Orta asitlik.

Decent 500mL Europint, desultory label. Heavily misted, but not foggy, straw blonde pour with a tall, icy white head. A faint vanilla note up front, mild straw bitterness, faintly tangy, not sweet. Didn't have big yeast or esters, as I was hoping for. The wheat twang clings. Lightish body, poor carbonation retention. Probably a technically good beer that judges in lederhosen might toast to, or swill in a boot, but not one that I particularly enjoyed. Consumed from the weizenglass that accompanied it in a mixpack. Publix, Bradfordville.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2017 There are many great Weissbiers out there, but erdinger is easily the best. depends what your looking for but its perfect in terms of body and taste. not to heavy, nor light. with a smooth, ever so slightly sweet taste. perfect

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2017 A delicious weißbier. Aromas of banana, quite fizzy, very lively head when poured from a bottle. Love it!

tandembrauer (1617) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2017 Shared bottle at home. Pours hazy deep golden with dense white head. Aroma of oranges, cloves, bread, some sulfur. Tastes slightly sweet with little bitterness. Thin bodied.

Cerveza de trigo alemana. Poca espuma blanca. Aroma agradable. Buen equilibrio entre amargo y dulce (mas amarga que la paulaner y quizá que la Benediktinen). cuerpo ligero-medio, refrescante para ser una weiss. No se nota mucho el gusto a trigo. Buen equilibrio entre malta, trigo y lúpulo. retrogusto refrescante. Una buena weiss.

tranzzik (62) - Sieradz, POLAND - OCT 22, 2017
50cl bottle. Pours light golden colour with a big head, that falls quickly. Aroma of malts and banana with a bit of alcohol. Taste is mostly malt with hints of banana and yeast. Its rather light bodied, with medium carbonation and low bitterness.

Opalizujące, złote, bresk piany. Slodki aromat, mocno bananowy. W smaku trochę gorzej,mniej banana, ale dobre. średnia wysycenie. Całkiem ok.
