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’.

badgerben (5027) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Dark, murky reddish brown color with a large head. Strong wheat aroma along with a bit of banana, but a little sour. Strong, malty body with a dry grain finish. Definite wheat flavors, but it lacks the banana/clove combo. Some chocolate.

500ml bottle -pours a big foamy to rocky light tan head and brown color. Aroma is medium malt-caramel, dark fruit, secondary hops, cardboard (maybe helps explain the big head). Taste is medium malt-caramel, dark fruit, light faint hops, cardboard, slight spice, some yeast-banana. Light side of medium body. Mild carbonation.

robinvboyer (4404) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2007
Big off white head. slight malty, and yeasty aroma. Kinda weak in flavour, thin and wattery, meh, not their best, pretty much the same as their regualr weisse, might be one of the worls most popular weisse beers, but far from the best.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2007 [347-20070618] Tap @ BeerBistro (Toronto, ON). Faintly malty aroma. Dark brown body has a creamy off-white head and some lacing. Flavour hints at sweet caramel and malt. Full body is smooth. Very nicely blended, refreshing. (5/4/7/4/14) 3.4

[756B-20071013] Tap @ West 50 (Mississauga, ON). Faint bit of yeast aroma. Hazy, dark brown amber body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Bit of bubblegum malt flavour and generic pear-like fruit. Smooth medium body. Nice and smooth. (6/4/7/4/14) 3.5

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2007
Pours dark ebony with a soft beige head. Creamy on the palate, not very dry, with a light roastiness, mild clove banana and smooth wheat and molasses finish. This really didn’t go over the top with yeast esters, which made this a much more mellow beer, while not as thirst quenching as the really dry and crisp dunkelweizens this is more of a smooth and creamy brew.

500 ml bottle. Just had a Fransiskaner Dunkel last weekend and was hoping for the same tasty experience. Not quite. Started out a little bitter, and then all the carbonation died on me, leaving a watery sweet "Coke"-like liquid for the last 1/2 of the beer. Didn’t have much of a "weiss" or "dark" character to it.

Bottled. Poured dark brown, with a beige head. Nose is sour and yeasty. Malty flavor, with a sift-bodied, fizzy mouthfeel. Refreshing.

Erdinger Weissbier Dunkel 1/2 liter bottle Moderate pour in a Weizen glass. Best before 10/07, dinged 06/07. Poured a clear ruddy brown with lots of bubbles and a medium fizzy somewhat diminishing light brown head. Smelt of moderate spices, toasted malt, light molasses. Taste was upfront moderate sweet and bitter toasted grain and molasses followed by more of the same, except more pronounced on the bitter end. Short to medium length finish. Palate was light to medium bodied, fizzy,slightly dry and lightly astringent. Overall, its good a good dark wheat flavor which is one of my favorite grain flavors, but nothing extraordinary. Overly carbonated and generally light flavors make this a good session beer, but nothing to marvel about.

Roasted aroma, liquorice also. Very dark brown in appearance, almost black with a decent white head. Weak in flavour. Slight roasted texture.

jercraigs (10201) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2007
Draft at BeerBistro. Dark brown body with a big creamy beige head and solid lacing. Mild malt aroma, with notes of light toasty caramel. Similar flavour of sweet caramel malt with dry toasty finish and aftertaste. (6+). More dunkel than weiss. Average palate. Pleasant but less Aventinus like than I had hoped.
