2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A reasonably good Dunkel, I was a tad disappointed in the head which initially lasted well, but after my first mouthful fizzled away to nowt but a single-bubble thick covering, nice dark colour tho’ Slightly spicy palate with more than a hint of clean acidity on the finish, a refreshing beer. I’m not a great fan of the standard Erdinger, which I find a bit bland, and although I found this to be a bit better, you can get MUCH better for around the same amount of cash...this was from Asda,Carlisle and was about £1.70-80.

poured a deep brown hue with a thick white head which had great retention/lacing. Aroma was a mix of yeast malts and sweet malts mixed with a slight hop presence. Flavor was mildly sweet with a good mix of doughy malts and some bittering hops. Really smooth yet heavy on the palate.

500ml bottle. Thick, long-lasting head with brown-white alteration. Very dark colour. In the aroma, marshmallows, roses, burned malt. Very special taste - almost like a bock. Light-bodied, the alcohol can be felt through this one. Long, soothing finish.

Ok, the standard Erdinger Weiss wasn’t impressive. However, this one didn’t disappoint and may be my favorite dunkel weizen. Poured a flat dark brown color with a huge head that provided the best possible lacing. Aroma had bananas and light spicing detectable. The flavor followed, but was slightly roasted and caramel-like (much less so than other dunkel weizens, and certainly not as "dry"). This had a sweetness that exceed that of other dunkels I’ve had. Mouthfeel was moderate and this one was pretty drinkable for a weizen. Somewhat dry finish.
