Erdinger boasts the world’s largest wheat beer brewery where tradition and progress go hand in hand. Brewed according to traditional recipes, but using state-of-the-art technology, beer connoisseurs in Germany and around the world regard the traditional speciality beers from Erding, Bavaria, as the ultimate in wheat beer enjoyment
Erdinger Kristall pours a beautiful very clear straw gold with a gorgeous foamy frothy head. The pilsner malt aromas come through with a hint of bananas but overall it is lighter than most wheat beers. Palate tastes of vaguely fruity yeast with hints of banana and spiciness throughout. Its crisp and well carbonated mouthfeel with a crisp thirst quenching finish. I bought a bottle of this from Tescos, and it went down well with my Chinese! I had tried Weissbier and SchneeweiseI so I looking forward to drinking this wee beauty and adding it to my 32 New Beers on my list of 32 Things. It is particularly welcome as a tasty thirst-quencher and I think it will go down well on a hot summer day!
