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’.

Style et résumé: Bonne dunkel hefe weizen.
Comment: En fût au Biermarket.
Portrait: Un liquide brun avec une mousse beige. Un nez typique avec du blé, des bananes, des épices et une touche de caramel. Une bouche soyeuse presque crémeuse aux saveurs de pain d’épices, de blé tendre et de levure banane. Très agréable.
Note: 7+/10

Brown color, medium beige head. Banana, yeast and wheat aromas. Taste mirrors the aroma with some added sugar. Decent.

Cristobal37 (765) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 6, 2016
Aroma of soap, toast and cinnamon. Quite dark with big foamy head. Taste is pretty vacant. Not sure I tasted anything. Erdinger makes quite possibly the worst German beers in mass distribution. Some syruppy matter remains but otherwise it’s wet air. What a joke. Best before 03-2017 so it’s not a bad bottle just a bad beer.

500ML bottle. Pours dark clay brown with large white head. Good retention. Some Lacing. Smell is still yeasty but usurped by malt and nut. Taste is malty with caramel, hazelnut, some spice and quite yeasty. Thin yeasty mouthfeel. Nice tasting but a little weak bodied. Not much else to say, it’s obviously a good quality brew as always with erdinger, but a pretty pedestrian effort. Probably an entry level or benchmark dunkel.

Barna búzasör ami elég kuriózum. Nem is rossz, krémes, kellemesen karamellás ízű egy kis banánnal spékelve. Adalékmentes. Egy nagy hibája van, hogy kevés benne a bubi. De nagyon.

LasseVPedersen (382) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2016
Bottle, 50cl. Pours blurry light-medium hazed deep brown colour with strong brownish, stable, creamy foam. Aroma is subtle, but noticable. Roasted malts, wheat, clove, caramel, toffee, coffee, chocolate, banana, ripe fruits, bread, and of course yeast. Then again. If you want, you could say its weak for the style - metallic and just pale malt. You really have to look for it. Light sweet, roasty bitterness with creamy mouthfeel. Rye bread, malt, caramel flavour, but bit watery. Bit confusing to drink. It’s easy to drink and whatnot, but everytime you about to praise it for being something, its not delivering. Average.

Medium strong taste with taste of caramel, yeasts and sweet fruits. Beer is turbid from yeasts, color is from dark brown to black. Beer has very nice creamy foam. Taste is yeastsy and little sour with creamy texture.

I was expecting a lot of flavour from this dark dunkel. I was very disappointed from the first taste. It is incredibly bland and rather flavourless for a dark brew.
