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’.

0.5l bottle. Caramel, wheat aroma. Feculent and many bubbles. Foam lasts long time. Taste like wheat mixed banana and fruity gum. Wheat beers not my taste but interesting dark wheat.

Bierdimpfe (100) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2016
Almost opaque, dark brown color with a copper hue and some powerful activity. Creamy foamy thick light brown 3 finger head lasting around 15 minutes, creating a foam island eatable with a spoon, and some good legs. Aromas and flavors of toffee, grains, fruits, corn, herbal spices. Rich sweet fruity flavors with overtones of caramel and molasses, but unfortunately quite metallic. Pleasantly earthy and toasty without the bitterness. Creamy light body with prickly carbonation. Well intensified but short finish ending with a slightly sweet toffee and spicy feel on the tongue. Overall : Good craft; The flavors are a little faint and the body surprisingly thin compared to the head, still the taste is nice, refreshing, and well intensified.

De cerveceria Erdinger "Erdinger Dunkel" cerveza alemana de 5.3% de alcohol, el estilo es una dunkel weizen es decir una cerveza de trigo negra. En apariencia muestra tonos marrón obscuro no tanto para llegar al negro pero si considerablemente atenuada, con destellos rojizos en las colindancias del vaso, una corona de espuma de color arena y brillante, muy deficiente para una cerveza de trigo y de muy pésima retención, con un cuerpo considerablemente flojo. En el olfato muestra olores ligeros de grano, notas de pan, olores florales muy discretos, con fenoles a platano moderados cuando es la principal característica de una wizen, no se detectan especias por la levadura, posiblemente cuente con adjuntos como maltas de maíz o arroz, tampoco son existentes notas de lúpulo. Ya en paladar la consistencia es demasiado ligera, se apertura un dulzor limpio a malta, algo de sabor a maíz, notas a bizcocho y una leve sequedad al final causada por cierto amargor, una cerveza nada compleja, poco carácter y algo insípida.
