look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 500 ml tall brown Euro style bottle with a “best before end” freshness date on the back label.

Appearance: Nearly black with hues of tarnished ruby, thick powdery tiny bubbled lace lays on top then drops down to a thin stable lace.

Smell: Fruity with tones of prune and black currants, light alcohol esters are in the nose also. Malty with a mild spiciness in the aroma.

Taste: Bold and crisp upfront with a spicy tingle that is enhanced by the medium leveled carbonation. Solid and clean maltiness on the palate, crisp snappish wheat with undertones of caramel and bread. Hops are subdued with little in the flavour, fruity from middle to end with dark fruit flavours. Mild cocoa and husk flavours drawn on a dryness, alcoholic esters gather towards the end. Dry in the finish though there are a few left over residuals in the mouth so hold the body together far into the end.

Notes: Spicy with a clean zip, rich malty flavours from start to end. This makes for a near stellar brew of such a delicate style.

Labeled as "Erdinger Hefeweizen dunkel" in Germany -- tasted in Berlin.

Served in 0.5l branded weissbier glass. Presented as a dark, ruddy brown beer with some near black depth. Think, creamy foam lace with lost of stamina.

Slightly astringent, tight carbonation feel which induces a creamy mouthfeel and smoothness on the palate. Light malts, touch of chocolate, caramel and molasses. Hints of banana. Mineral body and flavour, with a thin citrus hop flavour that matches the malts and balances things out quite nicely.

A most delicious dunkel weissbier. A highly recommended brew ... from this expert weissbier brewer.

Serving type: on-tap

3.85/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A - Very dark brown or black depending on how much light hits it.

S - Dark fruit, spices and earthy notes.

T - Rich dark fruits, cloves and a sweet finish.

M - Mild carbonation but otherwise watery.

O - A deep inviting beer for those that like this style. Easy to drink even though many will be put off by its dark appearance. Although I prefer other Erdinger beers as this one feels a bit too heavy on the taste buds.
