On tap at the Loreeley a biergarten on Rivington St NYC. I enjoyed the weisen meets dark malt that poured an average head. Cloudy body released roasted grain taste. Body was medium and provided a moderate sweet and bitter combo.

Bottle. Labeled best before the end of 10-2007. Poured a dark brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate, roast, bananas, and I’m getting some dark fruits. Tastes of chocolate, roast, bananas, and a trace of caramel. Lively body.

500 ml bottle, best before 05-2008. Dark ruby brown colour with a mostly lasting fizzy and rocky tan head. Yeasty, chocolate, citrus, and metallic aroma. Yeasty, light chocolate, and bready flavours with a light banana and metallic finish. Medium bodied, smooth. Pretty simple and not all that flavourful.

Flaske. Igen en glædelig overraskelse. Flot mørk øl, med en kant af alkohol jeg normalt ikke opfanger i øl under 8-9 %. Og bestemt ikke forventede her. Dette er ment på en positiv måde. Så thumps up.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2009 Bottled 50cl. It pours a dark brown beer with a nice slightly beige head. Dominating raisins in the nose. Fruity with hints of almonds and a good malty background. Slightly smoky. This beer is nicely balanced. Malty, moderately sweet and with a hint of sourness. Light bodied. Notes of bergamot, soap, raisins, licorice and cereals. Some cloves and garlic?! showing up. Slightly watery. Bready. Malty finish with a hint of plums. Rerate: Mediocre, let’s face it!

Dark, cloudy, nut brown. Flavor stands out and feels smooth, but not gulpable. More of an easy sipping beer. Tastes like chocolate crakers. Not bad, i would try it again, and it is easily my favorite Erdinger.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2010 Had at the brewery outlet in Munich, and enjoyed every sip. Tried next to the regular (hellas) weiss bier, and might have liked this one better but I think that is due to mood....re-rate...Cola-colored, opaque with thick tan head. Brassy overtones on top of dry malts. The soft palate carries the flavor well. The chocolatey malts are also bready. The body is pretty thin and light, making it easy to drink. Clocked in at 6-4-6-3-12 and orig rating is 6-4-7-4-13.
