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’.

Pours a murky dark colour with a large lacy foamy head. Soft aroma of dried fruit, yeast and cocoa. Medium body, flavours of earth, cocoa and herbal hops giving a moderate bitterness. Yeasty towards the finish, which is otherwise slightly drier than I expected. Ticks all the boxes.

hoplover406 (204) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - APR 30, 2007
Bottle. Pours cloudy toffee brown with good creamy, 3 finger, tan head. It’s very carbonated...you can hear it fizzing. Aroma is OK not very pronounced. Some banana, bubblegum, dark fruit and malt. Mouthfeel is almost prickly, i don’t care for that. Flavor is even less impressive than the aroma. Not bad, just not stellar. This is not a bad beer it just seems a bit boring. I would drink it again if I was in the mood for a beer in this style and it were the only one available.

Not too strong a taste makes it a bit easier to drink, good head and not as gassy as other wiessbiers.

ekstedt (6420) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2007
Bottle, 50 cl. Pours a lovely cloudy dark brown color, with a huge beige fluffy head. Aroma is a disappointment, very weak with some faint roasted malt notes, spices and dried fruits. Medium bodied, good carbonation. Dry finish.

Bottle. Looks beautiful - dark brown with a nice medium beige head. Aroma is a bit light and is fruity, malty and a bit yeasty. Flavor is malty and a bit fruity with some banana notes. A bit of toastiness in the finish. Medium-bodied with lots of carbonation.

asedzie (786) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 14, 2007
Bottle. Big fluffy lasting khaki-colored head. Aroma is vanilla, wheat, sugary, roasted malt. Flavor is wheaty and doughy, some roasted flavors as well, but overall a bit thin of a body. Also some good carbonation and some lightly floral hoppy bitterness. Good stuff.

What a surprise, I didnt give much thought to my selection whilst buying this, I will certainly buy it again, has a nice head, spicy aroma and a nice bite to the taste, a long aftertaste reminisant of malt and pepper, very nice
