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’.

A caramel tasting, tiny headed dark brown but not black at all beer, wheaty and dark at the same time, (I guess that’s why it’s classified as a dunkelweizen), very little head for a wheat beer, overall mediocre but drinkable.

The aroma is soft and sour. There is a little bit of caramel and lots of malt. The appearance is dark brown with a large head. The flavor is bread like and has sour and bitter notes but nothing about the flavor is strong. For that matter the palate is the opposite of strong it’s weak. But, overall it does not suffer too much. It could have been better but it’s easy to drink.

Skinnyviking (7235) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2006
Bottle. White head. Dark red brown body. Aroma of roasted malt. More spicy than actually sweet flavor maybe because of relatively much carbon dioxide.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Nice creamy, hazy, dark brown color with a beautiful head. Unfortunatly, the aroma and flavors aren’t nearly as impressive as the way it looks in the glass. Some dark chocolate and light banana with a hint of spice is struggling to poke through. Nice and drinkable, but not one to specifically seek out. Had on tap in Frankfurt.

Nekronos (3646) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JAN 8, 2006
I do not like to rate a Weizen like this, but this was very flavorless, maybe I ate soemthing before that interfiered with the degustation. BUt could be better.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2006
Definitely dunkel with tan foam, Dark but not burnt caramel flavor, slight sourness, dark cocoa of course, moderat traces of cola and soap. Supremely adequate dunkel weissbier.

Lubiere (10472) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2005
Dark brown dunkel, hazed with quickly collapsing light brown head. Light spices in aroma, very faint. Light watery malt with light bananas, very boring dunkel, bought as a gift pack, LCBO.

Fantastic appearance and a great taste. Perfect dunkel and probably the best kind of dark wheat beers that you will ever find on the market.

thewolf (11259) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2005
Good round taste that stays with a long aftertaste. Sweet and soft as most wheat beers, but with a harder edge og roasted and chocolate barley.

Bottle, at home (030729). Dark brown with a nice brown, large head. Aroma moderate malty, light hoppy (chocolate, licorice, roasted/burnt). Flavor moderate sweet, light to moderate bitter. Light to medium body, smooth.
