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’.

fonefan (35220) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2006
Bottled. Dark brown with a huge off-white head. Weak aroma and flavour. Malt dominated aroma, but no real hint of the wheat malt. Well balanced hop finish.

Ungstrup (29474) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2002
Nice dark brown color and a good head. It has a slightly sour aroma. But a light fruity malt sweetness - an OK beer.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Very dark brown with a nice, full head. Very soft mouthfeel with notes of both chocolate and licorice. Less wheaty than your typical Hefe and not overly complex considering the four different malts. 220100

oh6gdx (20616) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2005
Bottled. Black opaque, big beige bubbly head. Sweet caramel, yeast and wheat in aroma, very pleasant. Plummy and yeasty flavour with a bit soapish hints. Rich carbonation. Pretty watery palate.

omhper (19644) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2008 Bottled. Cloudy nut brown, creamy head. Fruity caramelly nose without esters. Sweet with clean mouthfeel. Notes of soap, toast and wheat crackers. Medium bodied with no bitterness. Possessing very little in terms of character, and as it is also too sweet, it is neither a beer I’d drink for enjoyment nor for refreshment.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a longlasting off-white head. Has a slightly roasted wheat malty spicy aroma. Slightly roasted malty wheat malty caramel flavor. Has a roasted wheat malty caramel finish.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Richer, darker and maltier than other dark wheat beers. Slightly coffee and treacle, not sweet or fruity.

Dark brown fizzes on pour but not too fizzy, nice balanced malt, with a little sweetness and bitter in linger
