4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2004 Great rounded flavor, nice beer to just sit around with. I wish this were still available around here, but apparently the distributer decided that retirement made more sense than anything else. Oh well, sweet aroma/flavor, nice head when poured. I really enjoy erdinger.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Stirchley Wines and Spirits, Birmingham. Looks superb - dark, leathery, with a thick beige head, which is good and tall. Mmm smells good too; chocolate and wine aroma - sweet and tart. Very tasty, but mixed up beer. Loses balance and cohesion: the sweetness, coffee and wheat don't completely hang together - each is pleasant and adds up to a good experience, but this is not perfect. Dryness in the medium length finish. A good Dunkel weizen, but varied.

Dark brown cloudy body with a nice big head. Really nice appearance, love those dark weizens. Aromas is malty, wtih hints of banana. Rich flavor of malt and some toffee, not much taste in this one. Very ordinary.

Taste like a watery Aventinus. This is a beer that I could drink regularly...if I diodn't have access to the aforementioned Superbrew.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2005 Bottled.
Dark mahogany with an amazingly steady head. Banana nose. Flavour is rich and when it warms up I find sweet malt, banana and toffee. Dark malt is apparent. Medium-fullbodied.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A few sweet hints on a mainly dark malt nose. Pours very dark brown and thick with a pretty sizable beige head. I like the flavour. Reminds me a bit of a porter, has a slight wheatness, but mainly a dark malt body with a sweet hints. My first dark wheat beer, definately not my last.

Muddy dark brown body with big, frothy, off-white head. Malt dominated aroma, but no real hint of the wheat malt. Well balanced hop finish.

Weizens are a style of beer that looses flavor quickly after production. Mine had hints of what it might have been fresh. The maltiness and creamy body come through with just the right sweetness to let you know there was a real good weizen in this bottle just a little while ago. Worth a re-rate if I can find it fresh.
