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’.

Tranquillity (1453) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2006
500ml bottle. Thick, long-lasting head with brown-white alteration. Very dark colour. In the aroma, marshmallows, roses, burned malt. Very special taste - almost like a bock. Light-bodied, the alcohol can be felt through this one. Long, soothing finish.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JUN 21, 2006
poured a deep brown hue with a thick white head which had great retention/lacing. Aroma was a mix of yeast malts and sweet malts mixed with a slight hop presence. Flavor was mildly sweet with a good mix of doughy malts and some bittering hops. Really smooth yet heavy on the palate.

radiomgb (2504) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2006
Bottle in the Erdinger Christmas gift pack from the <a href=http://www.lcbo.com target=blank>LCBO in Peterborough. Deep brown - near black - in colour, long lasting tan coloured head, awesome lace. The aroma was quite malty, earthy, some chocolate, roasty. The flavour was creamy, some earth, toffee, light bananas, light roast. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, light body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a bit of fruit, smooth, lingering.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 2, 2006
16.9 oz. Bottle. Pours a dark red color with a good head and lacing. It has a kind of a weird sour nose. The flavor is smooth and bready with no banana or clove and slightly roasted. Smooth and clean finish. Not what I expected.

Rune (9340) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2006
500ml bottle served in a long tall World Cup glass at Blå Rock Cafe in Tromsø while watching Start vs TIL. Very nice appearance. Hazy dark brown. Sweet malts in a rather hard-to-pick-aroma. Flavour of dark fruit with light notes of yeast. Medium palate, but far from powerful.

A reasonably good Dunkel, I was a tad disappointed in the head which initially lasted well, but after my first mouthful fizzled away to nowt but a single-bubble thick covering, nice dark colour tho’ Slightly spicy palate with more than a hint of clean acidity on the finish, a refreshing beer. I’m not a great fan of the standard Erdinger, which I find a bit bland, and although I found this to be a bit better, you can get MUCH better for around the same amount of cash...this was from Asda,Carlisle and was about £1.70-80.
