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’.

Speedle (266) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 12, 2008
pours black with an almost white big head...plenty of lacing as it settles... aroma of light malts .... watery mouthfeel....malt liquor finish with a soapy, pasty after taste .... drinkable but no WOW factor

hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - FEB 12, 2008
A dark brown beer with hints of red in the pour and a small off-white head. The aroma is of malt and some fruitiness, maybe apple. the flavor is also malty with some burnt notes and roast barley hints like coffee and chocolate. A very dark wheat beer!

Botella. Comprada en supermercado. Bastante poco. No mucho aroma, no mucho sabor. algo de cuerpo, nada mas.

ilovesmid (15) - IRELAND - FEB 1, 2008
A very nice, healthy brew. Nice sustained head and strong flavours of malt and a little fruit. Dark body. Coolers, Dublin Ireland. 50cl bottle.

In direct contrast to the hefeweiss by this brewer - which I dont rate highly - this beer was much better. The dark colour hinted at the rich flavour to come, and the complex of fruit and maltiness made for a very pleasant beer, and a fine example of the dunkel style.

Rotorhead87 (119) - Temple, Texas, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Pours an amber color with a HUGE head. The taste is the typical wheat sweetness tempered by some nice malt flavors.
A nice solid dunkelweizen. Not the best, but not the worst either.

hrossrm (20) - Maine, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Poured from bottle. Very dark and cloudy brown with mild carbonation and a thick head. Can smell the abundance of wheat and the deeply roasted malts. Great sweet and tasty maltiness with a smooth finish. A bit soapy because of the long-lasting head. Probably the first dark wheat beer I’ve enjoyed!

lithilorn (291) - Covilhã, PORTUGAL - JAN 24, 2008
Bottle. dark brown body and light brown head.Aroma is malty with wheat. flavor is the same. not very intersting beer.

ford9719 (371) - Vilseck, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2008
