In this fall beer blog, we are going to get into Erdinger Oktoberfest. Erdinger was founded in 1886 by Johann Kienle. It is number one Hefeweizen in the world. They brew several different Hefeweizen beer styles. Let us get this fall beer.
It has a cloudy golden color with a white constant head. There is not really a smell on this fall seasonal. The taste has a malty lemon to clove notes. The aftertaste has a lemon to citrus finish. It is pretty drinkable.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:

In the end, all those years living in Chicago, I never picked up a bottle of this beer. I mean it was every liquor store I was in during the fall season. I am pretty amazed that I did not pick one up. It was a no brainer to pick up a bottle in this season. I did not think I would find a bottle in Michigan. I am glad I found a bottle right away. I am shocked by the color but I really not. It does not taste like an Oktoberfest. I was pretty disappointed with this beer. I was hoping for a lot more malty notes but then again it is another Hefeweizen. I have to say it is nothing really special. It is good but I am looking for malty fun at this time of the year. If you are a fan of Hefeweizen, you would like this one. I get why they put this up because it gives the beer drinkers something different. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
