bottle into weizen glass - aroma is of plums and dark fruits, lovely brown color with very full head that seems to last and lace down the glass. wow, great taste, bread like with more dark fruits with a smoth bitterness and mouthfeel, the carbonation is only a touch overdone but a beautifully crafted beer Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - MAR 19, 2007
Dark hazy brown with a huge bubbling, fast disappearing brown head. Fruity aroma of raisin along with wood and roasted malts. Getting some banana vibes in the flavor, along with the massive sweetness that covers the high abv%. The alchohol still burns abit in the finish though tykjen (182) - Florø, NORWAY - MAR 16, 2007
Dark velvet! Smooth fruity nose, perfect carbonation and a rocky head. Smooth and full bodied in the mouth. Good balance between the darkbock and the weizen. truegen (167) - Puyallup, Washington, USA - MAR 3, 2007
Bottle. Poured into Weizen style glass. Large head with large, but tight foam that faded fairly quickly, leaving no lacing. Banana/raisin nose, and that carries through to the top of the tongue. The finish is a little more dry, and it’s there that you catch the alcohol, along with a citrus tang. A wonderful beer--a little less sweetness on the front end, and I might’ve gone up a point or three. Grovlam (4245) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2007
Bottle. Head was average to large and slightly off-white creamy. Color was brown with light hazy body. Aroma was fruit, caramel, spicy and grain. Medium boded with an average carbonation. Flavor was mostly sweet, but light notes of bitterness balances this one. Nice sweet finish. Ok Weizen Bock, and defiantly the best Erdinger so far.

Intense bitter taste. Aroma of intense coffee and toasted malt. Dense and not persistent cream..........................................POR O pessoal da comunidade "degustadores de Cerveja" do Orkut chama a Erdinger de "Merdinger". Maldade...
Mas essa alemã decepciona. Trata-se de uma tentativa de fazer uma Bock parecer mais "forte". O conjunto, entretanto, fica comprometido. O resultado é que ela não se parece nem com uma Bock, nem com uma Weiss.
Amargor intenso e nada convidativo. Aroma de café e malte torrado intenso.
Creme pouco denso e não persistente. DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2007
Impenetrable deep brown pour with heaped cappuccino suds. Rich, chocolate raisiny snout with a sniff of yeast. Creamy burnt chocolate maltiness with hints of banana, dark fruit, booze and Erdinger’s characteristic note of woodsy dryness. Quite a dry finish followed by some mellow wheatiness after the swallow. An excellent balance of malty sweetness and roasty bitterness. patrick767 (4063) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 20, 2007
500ml bottle - Pours dark brown with a medium head and no lacing. The aroma is malts, bananas, and yeast. The flavor has a hint of banana as well and the wheat comes through well. It has a medium body and lively carbonation, and finishes a little dry. RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - FEB 17, 2007
This has 08 2006 on the back, so it may be past it’s prime. Let’s find out.
Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with some red highlights when held up towards a light. The beige colored head peaks at two fingers, and fades slowly to a soapy cap that leaves behind a thick sheeting of lace.
Smell; the aroma is a bit tame here, but there are some hints of wheat with a little bit of lemon. Some sweet caramel malts and a touch of a spiciness are present along with a touch of chocolate. But as I said it’s all very mild in the aroma department.
Taste; mm...much better. The wheat is much more present in the flavor, with a nice spiciness that mixes very nicely with the caramel and chocolate malts. After a few sips the lemon shows itself with a bit of herbal hops.
Mouthfeel/Drinkability; Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with a nice creamy feel to it, and has a really good drinkability. faroeviking (10912) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 8, 2007
Bottle from the cooler in Irma. Dark brown hazy colour with a big creamy long lasting brown head. Sweet fruity aroma with caramel, malts and some alcohol. Flavour of sweet caramel, medium roasted malts, and alcohol, bit siruppy. Hoppy bit dry sweet finish. Warms up your belly!
