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’.

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.

Sregnar35 (971) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2005
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.

Fukito (735) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - JUN 21, 2005
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.

Dark brown colour. Thick beige, creamy head. Aroma from brown sugar and yeast. Sweet caramel flavour with notes of liquorice. Malty, earthy. Medium bodied. Medium bitterness.

DocLock (7829) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2005
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.

ABUSEDGOAT (2360) - California, USA - JUN 12, 2005
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...

weepingsuds (222) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - JUN 10, 2005
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.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 4, 2005
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.

SDalkoholic (2145) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUN 4, 2005
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.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2005
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.
