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’.

Aroma of dark fruit and figs. Pours a dark opaque brown with a large foamy tan head and no lacing. The taste, while lightly sweet, has grainy finish and aftertaste. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, ok, but nothing outstanding. Really not much taste at all except for the finish.

Jeden z moich ulubionych niemieckich ogólnodostępnych ciemnych piw pszenicznych. Może dlatego go tak lubię że od niego właśnie zaczęła się kilkadziesiąt lat temu moja przygoda w poszukiwaniu różnych ciekawych smaków piwa :)

Aroma of bread and caramel with some yeast. Large head quickly disapearing to thin layer. Dark brown colour. Pleasant taste of caramel, yeast and wheat with delicate bitterness. Smooth and well-balanced.

Maakun (906) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2015
Bottle. Very dark brown with big creamy light beige head. Very fruity, licorice, rye bread, dough, caramel, red apple, yeast but not a lot of spices, light candy and wine gum notes. Medium sweet with very light tartness and light bitter in the finish. Medium bodied with full carbonation. Nice.

lo primero que destaca al servirla, es su abundante espuma, esponjosa y ligeramente oscura, pero que luego desaparece rápido, sin embargo. El color es madera oscuro, turbio, bastante opaco, pero la levadura de su maduración en botella. En el aroma, el tostado y el pan son los predominantes, casi ocultando el frutal a plátano, que queda como secundario. El sabor inicial (quizá por la temperatura) es metálico, y pasa a notas dulces de pan y chocolate después. Pero es demasiado ligera, con poco cuerpo y no mucho carácter. http://cerveza.uvinum.es/erdinger-w 1,66€

Flaska systembolaget. Brungrå grumlig vätska med stort och fluffigt ljust beiget skum. Fruktig doft. Äpplekart, apelsin och koriander. Lätt och smått rostad smak. Äpplekart, hö och kryddor. Len och mjuk i munnen.

SinH4 (359) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 8, 2015
A very dark appearance even for a Dunkelweizen. Aroma is lots of malts, not much spicy yeasts... Taste is dark and feels complex, but isn?t really... a bit of plums and molasses, but nothing you?d expect of a Dunkelweizen. Chocolate, damn! A bit unpleasant, more malts than most other Bavarian Dunkelweizen... Not enough yeast character to be really good. A bit different, but I don?t know if that?s good...

Frothmeister (598) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a creme coloured head. There isn’t much to the nose, but some faint brown sugar, mineral notes, and raisin peek through. The taste has light molasses, raisin, dates, grape bubblegum, and woody notes that lead into sweet light coffee notes, brown sugar, light molasses, and an almost wine-like grape note in the dried fruit finish. Totally solid. A repeat purchase for sure.

mecafilo (117) - Perugia, ITALY - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours with a very dark red colour, medium diminishing frothy head. Aroma is medium to heavy malty, with notes of caramel and bread and hints of chocolate; slightly hoppy. Taste is medium sweet, slightly bitter, not so terrible actually. Little body, oily texture, fizzy carbonation.

Part of my 2013 backlog. Colour is dark cola brown with a tan head. Aroma has roasted malts. The taste has this too. Nice.
