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’.

Canmoore (450) - Ottawa, Ontario, - FEB 1, 2013
500 ml bottle from LCBO. This is a very interesting beer, it is a wheat beer..yet it has massive dark malts of a dunkel. It pours a nearly opaque mahogany, with an absolutely massive off white head. The head lingered for the entire time I drank the beer! The aromas are of intense toffee, coffee, caramel and roasted malts. The taste is full of robust roasted malts, chocolate, and bubbling in the background is a bit of citrus...very interesting! The beer has a dry finish, and a pleasant aftertaste. This is very drinkable!

26. 3. 2017, Kaval, Ljubljana. Bottled. Creamy body with lots of carbonisation. Aroma subdued. Not at all alike other Weizenbeers because it does not have that specific banana note. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at home on several occasions. Just a superb beer, a dark, Wheaty, sweet bottle of joy. Perfect for dark knights in or in a deck chair after a good days skiing. All rounder.
