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’.

1 Pint, 9 fl.oz bottle. Pours a dark couldy amber with plenty of thick white foam. Aroma is fruity with definate banana esters. Has a pleasant wheaty flavour, somewhat like a wheat biscuit, with no hop bitterness.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 Very neat aroma of bread fresh baked, cooled then busted open. Initial flavor is very smooth, one of the most enjoyable beers I have tasted. Very tasty with no bitter hops. No offensive finish what so ever. Much better than any of the highly touted bitter beers I see on this website. I’ll never taste another imperial stout or IPA again. Thanks erdinger. Note: My bottle did not say ’dunkle’ on it, it said ’hefe-weizen dark’ 5.5% but everybody assures me this is the same beer.

Stupendously huge head, near gushing, light-greige in colour, over mahogany to ebony beer. Soft sweet nose with coffee and coloured malts, horse fodder, malt- or café noir cookies, speculoos, sweet leaf vegetable as misuna. Licorice flavour; faintly bready, quite sweet but not as typically confectionary like most Bocks. Maybe a bit of banana, overripe, but remarkably restrained on fruitiness; cloves or other spices all but absent. Rather light bodied, no burning in the MF - and no acidity neither. A tad too sweet to my liking, but not as stereotypic as most of its brethren. Not something to go hunting for, but if you come across it, don’t waste the opportunity.
