3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at Bohemian, Deal. One of my favourite wheat beers. It looks good in the Erdinger glass with a good head. Nose is of burnt caramel malts and the flavour has liquorice and malt. Very nice drink indeed even in the height of summer.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2005 Nice looking beer, very dark with a weak head. But the flavor is kinda weak, it’s got a roasted bitterness to it, but the carbonation doesn’t blend well.

Bottle - June 2005
Pours very opaque brown, almost black. Thick head and white ( but not so thick for a wheat bear). The aroma and taste are of cloves and bananas, lingering a bit, but the aftertaste doesn´t lasts long. A fine dunkel when no others are around.

The label matches, bugt I have a few more Erdinger beers up my sleeve (and a few more German women, also). This one pours turbid burny umber with medium, uniform, off-white head. Aroma of hopcit, toffee, brown sugar, figs, sour mash poontang. Tastes roasty malty, with shades of caramel, almonds, figs, brown sugar. Medium to light palate, with a moderate complexity and balance. This one is a definite repeater, but not one that jumos out at me and demands a repeat buy.

Pours a somewhat cloudy brown color with a lot of head. The aroma is fairly complex, the flavor isn’t. It’s still pretty smooth. Easy to drink, but nothing very interesting here. Worth a try I guess...

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very dark brown, much darker than other dunkels I’ve had. Pours smooth in a Hefe glass with a nice large carmel head. Smells of coffee and molasis. The taste is not as strong as the aroma would have you believe. As a candle this would make a great scent, but as a beer the flavor just doesn’t quite add up.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy dark brown with a thick tan head. Not much lace. Smells of over ripe banana. Rich wheat malt. Bready. Spicy clove and pepper in the nose.
Flavor mirrors the nose. Ripe banana, bready wheat malt, sweet and sticky and spicy pepper and clove flavors. a lemony finish and sticky in the mouth. Pretty good stuff if not overly complex.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours a dark leather brown and creates a monstrous beige head. Has a small aroma divided in between caramel and malt. I wasn’t expect the flavor to be so bland, but it is and taste just like an ordinary dark American lager. Somewhat bitter while also maintaing a decent carbonation level although i won’t plan on buying this again.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Black opaque, big beige bubbly head. Sweet caramel, yeast and wheat in aroma, very pleasant. Plummy and yeasty flavour with a bit soapish hints. Rich carbonation. Pretty watery palate.
