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’.

jercraigs (9836) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2007
Draft at BeerBistro. Dark brown body with a big creamy beige head and solid lacing. Mild malt aroma, with notes of light toasty caramel. Similar flavour of sweet caramel malt with dry toasty finish and aftertaste. (6+). More dunkel than weiss. Average palate. Pleasant but less Aventinus like than I had hoped.

Bottle. Pour is brown red with a decent sized khaki head. Aroma is wheat, banana and clove. Taste is wheat, banana, clove and a hint of roasted malts. Bigger body, yet still very refreshing.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2008 Ótima weiss dunkel! Excelente aroma frutado. Sabor bem harmônico, que te convida a tomar outra em seguida. Muito boa drinkability.

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - JUN 4, 2007
Appearance: dark brown with reddish touch. Little head, beige color, medium consistence and few persistent. Aroma: sweet malty, toasty cereal, sweet chocolate and candy. Fruity touch and sweet-spicy like mocha, nutmeg and clove. Flavor: sweet toasty malts, coffee, candy and banana. Sweet start that progresses in a fruity citric and finishes in a low dryness of hops and toast. Something of metallic end. Palate: Medium body and watery texture. Low to medium carbonation. Mediocre beer. (sorry for my english)

My 250th rating...Stopped by a local German Rest. here in town. Poured from bottle. Had no idea there was such a thing as a dark hefe. I really enjoyed it. Poured a very dark brown with large head that lasted a while...taste was wheat and malts and a bit of spice. Very good compliment to the German food.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2007
Hazy, dark brown with a huge head. The aroma has a discrete wheaty note and a light sourness and the flavour has notes of malt and a bit of wheat and caramel. It’s a bit too anonymous, but if you aren’t yet into wheat beers, it’s a nice place to start.

pours dark brown with fluffy, off-white head. roasted malts and some weak fruit flavours. dry finish, overall fairly unmemorable though.
