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’.

Kavu (4981) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 28, 2008
Very foamy slightly brown top. The colour is almost pitch black. I didn’t catch much of an aroma, but it tastes like you would expect a dunkel to taste. Full, malty and wheaty.

500ml bottle from Tacoma Boys Market. Huge head on the pour, but dissipated rather quickly. Enticing aromas of bread, clove, and maple/caramel. Not overly sweet or hoppy, this is a perfect example of the style, and I love this style. No, it’s not done often enough in my opinion. If it’s going to be ’hefe’, make mine a dunkel.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Pours a dark hazy brown color. Aromas of bread, malt, and some fruit. Flavor has a touch of sweet malt and clove, I think. Overall, not to bad.

kidmartinek (5001) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Pours drk brown with practically no head (I mean balls) for a wheat beer. Smells like pale wheat malt. Tastes like balnd medium wheat malt. Very fizzy mouthfeel, Fizzy wheat finish. Too watery and plain for my wel refined taste.

thegreenrooster (4490) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is of caramel malts and a coffee but everything is very slight. Flavor is creamy with some dark fruit and a roasted after taste. Nothing complex here and pretty standard.

3.4
Strykzone (7492) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2008
Dark brown / red with a big tan head. Aroma of malty banana with faint coffee notes. Feel is a bit above medium. This is more malt centered than wheat but there is some wheat flavor with yeast and clove. Nice tongue tickling hops. Caramel flavor dominated late. Not at all complex but still delightful.

3.9
jimhilt (2615) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - APR 28, 2008
Pours a five finger light tan head that fades quickly to a thin layer and leaves traces of lace. Cloudy amber color, yeast left in bottle. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Mostly malty nose. Flavor is malty, sweet, hints of yeast. Clean finish. Nice hefe. $3.99 for a 500ml bottle from Capitol Convenience Concord, NH.

2.9
BelgiskOlklub (1083) - Viby J, DENMARK - APR 27, 2008
Bottle. Large, creamy, light brown lasting head with good lacing. Cloudy brown body. Heavy malt aroma of coffee, nutty, toasted/roasted malt. Light yeast and hop aroma. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation and a metallic finish. The flavor is moderate/heavy sweet and light bitter. A OK beer even though it is not very complex or surprising.
