A wheat beer from the good old days.
Erdinger Weissbier ’dark’ is a rich and smooth wheat beer specialty from Erdinger Weissbräu. It owes its full-bodied flavor to the fine hops and dark malt used in its production.
The dark beer specialty is brewed according to an age-old recipe. Its spicy flavor also results from the increased proportion (about 13%) of original wort. Nonetheless, at 5.3%, it doesn’t contain much more alcohol than Erdinger Weissbier ’with fine yeast’.

500ml Bottle. Saw this in Morrisons - had to buy it. Pours with a big tan head, very dark brown body, my mate described it as looking ’like coke’. Roasted flavors, wheat, yeast and a hint of coriander. Some fruity, apple-like stuff in there too. As ever with weizens, it felt a bit watery, nice flavors just not enough of them. Very good mouth feel and easy to drink. I’m a fan of the dunkelweizen style, and this is a good one - recommended.

Darker brown to almost black coloured beer with average carbonation and an average off-white head. Roasted and malty sweet aroma. Medium to full palate. Finish is sweet roasted, again rather malty. Not bad.

Bottle @ House of Brews (46th St), NYC. Pours a hazy dark brown and that prominent tan head you see in every weissbier. Aroma is of clove, banana, malt, and slight chocolate. Taste is predominantly chocolate but I also detected some clove and banana as well. A great dunkelweizen.

Pours a hazy dark body with a large brownish head. Aroma is little weak but it is little fruite and roasted and yeasty. Flavor has small banana notes(very small if you compare it with other weissen). Itis somewhat bready and spicy, some roasted malt to. Palate is creamy and smoth, very thick and little dry.

wxman (1713) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 13, 2007
Pours a somewhat hazy dark brown with a big full light tan head that doesn’t go away. Wheat malt aroma with some fruity esters. Sweet bready flavor with some roasted malt. Perhaps a little coriander and clove present as well. Pretty decent and very refreshing, but not very weizen. A little on the thin side.

badgerben (4809) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Dark, murky reddish brown color with a large head. Strong wheat aroma along with a bit of banana, but a little sour. Strong, malty body with a dry grain finish. Definite wheat flavors, but it lacks the banana/clove combo. Some chocolate.

500ml bottle -pours a big foamy to rocky light tan head and brown color. Aroma is medium malt-caramel, dark fruit, secondary hops, cardboard (maybe helps explain the big head). Taste is medium malt-caramel, dark fruit, light faint hops, cardboard, slight spice, some yeast-banana. Light side of medium body. Mild carbonation.

Big off white head. slight malty, and yeasty aroma. Kinda weak in flavour, thin and wattery, meh, not their best, pretty much the same as their regualr weisse, might be one of the worls most popular weisse beers, but far from the best.

Pours dark ebony with a soft beige head. Creamy on the palate, not very dry, with a light roastiness, mild clove banana and smooth wheat and molasses finish. This really didn’t go over the top with yeast esters, which made this a much more mellow beer, while not as thirst quenching as the really dry and crisp dunkelweizens this is more of a smooth and creamy brew.
