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’.

Kshanti (2) - Helsinki, - APR 3, 2011
Dark apperance. Nice head. Easy to drink, soft, perhaps hint of sweetness. This one was better a bit better than the last fre others I’ve tasted and all of them were bought at the same time from the same place. Perhaps the moon is now in different position or there is some variance in storaga temperature.

strap (437) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - OCT 20, 2014
pours dark like a cola with a quickly dissipating beige head. sweet and sour aroma. roasted malts really come through in this one. very robust and perfect for winter. sour on the end. not bad.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Smells of cloves, freshly baked bread and deciduous forest. Thin foam and milky mouth feel. Very sharp for a weizen, which I like. The taste furthermore comprises elements of toffee, christmas pastries and cream. A classic.

Gbgbrouge (55) - SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2014
Poured from bottle, dark brown with medium creamy head. Aroma is light with notes of banana, not so different from Hefe Weissbier. Taste though is quite different, dark toast with toffee and dried friut with notes of banana.

This beer has a great looking dark color. It smells just like a freshly opened box of California raisins. It has a mild flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
