COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Ingredients: Water; wheat malt; barley malt; roasted malt; hops; yeast.
Name changed from Erdinger Weissbier Dunkel to Erdinger Dunkel, and abv changed from 5.6% to 5.3% by 2012.
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’.

bu11zeye (12155) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 26, 2006
(Bottle) Pours a dark brown body with a medium-sized beige head. Aroma of sweet malt, toffee, and some fruit. Falvor of dark malts and some dark fruitiness with a dry, somewhat bitter finish.

RoyceH (1197) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - SEP 21, 2006
Bottle, Aikman’s Cellar Bar, St Andrews. Dark brown, huge white head. Aroma is somewhat spicy, malty, chocolatey. Mouthfeel is over-carbonated to the extreme, tastes chocolatey, cocoa malt, wheat, nice slow bitter finish. Would be better if it weren’t for the bottle carbonation.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2006
Draught (Bavarian Beerhouse, EC1): Dark brown with a pale head. Lacking in aroma, but light chocolate and banana in the flavour. Refreshing, and very drinkable.

brewgirlca (57) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2006
Bottle. Pours a huge pale tan rocky head with an extremely tight bead. Like a moca shake. Deep brown and surprisingly clear for a hefe Weizen. Light bready nose with just a hint of banana phenol. Very low chocolate, hardly there, I was looking for more along with a more pronounced banana bread palate. Borderline sweet. Nice easy drinking beer that was a hit with my novice beer drinking friends but lacking phenol-ester and chocolate and/ or toasted malt complexity that are hallmarks of the style. So mild this could almost pass as an Alt

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2006
(06.17.06) On Tap at Firkin, Libertyville, IL. Poured black opague with giant off-white head. No discernable carbonation. Sweet malt and hop aroma. Medium bodied beer that starts dry with caramel flavor. Finished dry with light malt fade. Although watery and thin, this is a decent beer that went well with a chicken quesadilla.

Borup (7650) - Albertslund, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2006
Bottle. Dark brown with beautiful beige/off white head. Aroma of wheat and malt. Flavour is roasted malt and caramel and wheat in the finish.

Fin (8270) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2006
Bottle picked up at Morrissons, Aylesbury 8th August 2006, and drank this in a field at Cropredy, Fairport Conventions Cropredy Festival Thursday 10th August. This was another of my beers that I had to drink straight from the bottle having forgotten to take a glass into the field. It looked very dark in the bottle, and I could detect a nice malty rich and roasty aroma, there was some nice maltiness in the taste along with a bit ofn yeast as well, even a bit of fruit there. Pretty good beer all things considered.

bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - AUG 6, 2006
Bottled. Pours a clear dark brown with a slightly lacy tan head. The aroma is light, with a bit of cloves and roasty malt. The body is light, with medium fine carbonation. The taste is subtle for a dark beer, with a bit of spice, fruit, and just a hint of coffee. This is the "lightest" dark beer I’ve sampled so far.
