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’.

RIVERA_HOU (19) - Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Nutty, sweet, caramel, roasty, slight bitterness of hops. Nice floatiness texture from yeast. Almost tastes like root beer. I like regular Erdinger Hefeweizen better though but definitely a nice dark wheat beer.

From bottle at Krambua, Trondheim. Hazy brown. Foamy and persistent pale brown head. Fruity, but moderate aroma with nuts, dried berries and some sourness. Similar taste, with banana and noticeable malt.

jamaty (1250) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Espuma abundante. Color ambar oscuro. Aroma neutro. Sabor muy marcadamente dulce, sobre todo al final, dejando azúcar en la punta de la lengua. Algo de café, pero lo que predomina claramente es el dulce. Por ello, aunque al principio no entra mal, pronto cansa y se convierte en una especie de jarabe. Tiene trigo, pero su sabor encaja mejor con el de una dark lager

Brown, hazy, beige head falling down to thin ring. Aroma of caramel and some yeasts and faint banana. Taste sweet, caramel, weizen-like but watery texture. Closer to schwarzbier.

maki101 (3) - SERBIA - JUN 6, 2015 does not count
0,5 l bottle at home, without food. Usually I like wheat beer but this was to ordinary with a bit burned taste and dry afrer taste. At the moments nice but overall not to interesting for me. Probably is going much better with food.
