The Erdinger Dunkkel - a dark wheat beer. You might be expecting a little bit more from this one than what you get. It's not that it's bad, it's just not very noteworthy. Sort of like the time you had purple catchup and it tasted.. just like ketchup.

An opaque dark brown pour with lots of carbonated head greets you. It settles fast and leaves no trace of head behind. The smell has something to offer though..some banana maltiness which is nice.

Unfortunately it's nowhere to be found once you actually drink it. Instead you get fairly lackluster and heavily carbonated, malt start and finish. There's just not enough volume here, and certainly no complexity - or much of anything for that matter.

Mouthfeel is ok despite the high carbonation and drinkability is passable. But what a boring beer!

Picked this up at Oak Barrell in Hagerstown. Excellent looking beer, darker than many which I liked, had that delicious look. Smell was odd, more of a caramel than wheat. Taste was outstanding, very smooth and easy to drink. This was quite the surprise, I liked it very much but may not buy often as others I like more that cost less.
