The world's most popular wheat beer. Erdinger Weissbier is a traditional Bavarian wheat beer brewed in strict accordance with the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516. Erdinger Weissbier is bottle fermented - like champagne - resulting in a unique refreshing taste. Its glistening golden-straw colour and majestic frothy head are unmistakeable.

    One of my favourite hefeweizens. Maybe not in the same class as a Schneider or a Weihanstephan, but still pretty damn good. A hazy pale yellow pour with a huge frothy white head. Aroma is banana, bubblegum, wheat, and cloves. The flavour is well balanced with the sweet wheat notes up front. This goes down easy!

    Mellow pleasant aroma. Cloudy, pale amber / yellow, pours with an initial thick white foamy head - dissipates to thin head on standing. Very drinkable - easy on tongue, little fizz on tongue. Nice beer.

    CAUTION: Pour this baby slow it foams up a massive head over a extremely dark brown body. The mouthfeel is like a thick malt shake. The only thing missing in this beer is flavor there just isn't very much.

    pours a cloudy blonde colour with ample carbonation and a medium sized head but it didn't manage to retain any lace. The aroma has a lot of grain smell upfront with a banana backing and maybe the barest hint of cloves. Warming really helped it out as the banana came forward a bit more. The taste starts with the banana sweetness with a bit of malt at which point dry wheat takes over with a small hint of cloves. The mouthfeel has the carbonation in the body is very well done. The aftertaste is also nice and balanced. Longer lasting head and removing the odd touch of dryness would be nice.

    here's a pretty nice banana and clove forward hefe. lacking a little compared to the best german examples (scneider, weihenstephaner) in flavor and body, but a pretty good, refreshing ale.

    Hazy deep golden color with nice long lasting white foam head, Much citrus fruit in the taste, refreshing. Not too carbonated and lasting taste in mouth. Good alcohol, refreshing. Good beer.

Slight undistinguishable aroma as was the taste as I could not discern this or that but it was good..Even the non beer drinking wife liked the taste. Had a great mouthfeel as well. And Id feel good about offering this one to my friends at home

    A decent hef. Cloudy, yellow, and very wheaty. Bought this for my father cause he leans towards this style if trying something different. I tasted a few ounces, but not enough to get the full effect. May buy one to try out solo, but did not seem like anything special, so who knows. There seem to be better ones out there.

    Gift pack came with 2 bottles and a gorgeous beer glass. Wow! I love this beer. Hazy, golden colour, nice creamy head with good lacing. Totally undemanding, yet wonderful! Smooth feeling, tasting and drinking. Not a complex, special occasion beer, but my favourite 'easy-drinker' I've tried yet! A lovely surprise!

    This is a banger. I tried a 0,5 liter bottle and I loved it. I poured it into it's own tall glass and that is a quite impressive sight. It builds a nice bubbly head that stays on for a while. The aroma has hints of lemon peel and is a bit grainy. And there is a lot going on in the mouth as well. Again the lemon with other citrus fruits like orange and lime. Again, the wheat returns and leaves you refreshed after each sip. An absolute banger for in the summer.
