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.

ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - MAR 13, 2013
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?

Acaro (77) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 28, 2017
Aroma: Subtle citrus and hay notes. Appearance: golden color with cloudy liquid and a frothy white head. Taste: Light bitterness and medium sweet notes. Palate: Medium body with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Fruity sweet finish (not a long memory). Overall: An always fresh beer. To have in summer but to have in winter too.

One of the quintessential examples of the style of course. Easy to drink with mild fruitiness and relatively full body for the style.

19Oracolo78 (159) - ITALY - MAR 26, 2017
Birra dal colore giallo paglierino opaco. Schiuma bianca, fine e persistente. All’olfatto sentori fruttati di pesca gialla e crosta di pane. Al palato leggera con note di pane appena lievitato e frutta a polpa gialla. Una birra molto beverina che se lasciata riposare troppo diventa piatta e insignificante.

On tap. Pours hazy orange yellow. Lots of wholemeal bread, some peach, banana, pepper, cloves. Not a bad wheat beer example, but not at all exciting.

My favorite German beer to drink. Drank this on many times with my father after outings together on the golf course, or celebrations with my grandfather. Absolute must try. Enjoy 1 per evening to really relish the taste.

Bottle 0,5 L. Well chilled in the fridge. Poured into a 0,25 L beer glass. Pours hazy yellow color with a white head of average height. The nose of citrus and meadow grass. The taste is fresh, crisp and clean. The aftertaste is bread and citrus. A good quality commercial beer overall. USD2.44
