Erdinger_oktoberfestBrewer: Erdinger Weissbrau, Erding, Germany
Style: Hefeweizen
ABV: 5.7%
IBUs: Unspecified

Description: Brewed in honor of Oktoberfest, this limited release by Erdinger is a stronger, maltier variety of their regular hefeweizen. Much like your Marzens, this brew combines a darker, slightly tangy, and slightly sweet malt base with a mild hopping to create a balanced and refreshing brew.

Tasting Notes: This beer was pretty much what i was expecting from an Oktoberfest hefeweizen, which was a beer that had a rich, malty base and some grainy, minerality to it. But it also had some hints of honey and mild citrus which were quite pleasant and worked well with its clean finish.

Appearance: Straw gold, cloudy, lacy foam and good carbonation
Nose: Rich malt nose, notes of honey, citrus, minerals
Taste: Smooth, slight honey sweetness, grains, mineral tang, notes of tangerine
Aftertaste: Lingering smooth malts, clean refreshing finish
Overall: 8/10
