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’.

radarsock (1223) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Purchased from Leary’s for $3. Single bottle. Pours a murky mahogany dark brown with a thin tanned head. Smells fairly roasted and of caramels, wet oak, pear skins and tobacco. Tastes the same. Mint and dandelions by swallow. Hmmm... decent.

shanoknowsfood (102) - Hawaii, USA - NOV 28, 2017
Bottle at Whole Foods. Looks & smells great! Tastes like treacle. Refreshing but a bit thin & watery for me...weak, too. Nothing to get excited about. Since i don't drink but a couple beers at a time, i expect them to be thick, rich, complex, and strong. Whole Foods has limited management when it comes to getting new & interesting beers in, and i go there more than anywhere else, since i don't frequent brew pubs...as there are few around these parts. But at least they coulda got the Dopplebock instead of the Dunkel. Will not be trying this again.
