Pours a gorgeous dark amber with a generous tan head that leaves sheets of lace on the glass. The head is huge at first and settles nicely in the glass.
There are heavy fruit notes in the nose (banana and raisan) with a touch of spice. This fruity and spicy beer is joined by a delightful malt sweetness that has elements of carmel. Fantastic.
A dark malt flavor is understated in the mouth. The fruit is full and sweet and absolutely delicious. This beer is easy to drink because it is sweet, but not too sweet and complex without being overbearing.
This is a medium bodied beer that is smooth and creamy in the mouth. The carbonation grabs the tongue in the finish treating the mouth to a full on assault of texture.
This is a great beer. It is a beer of contradictions--a dark beer that is light and refreshing; a wheat beer that is complex and flavorful and a beer that can be both a sipping beer and a thirst quencher. I could drink this beer anytime of the year and feel that it is the right time to drink it.

this is a nice looking dark beer. the coudy hefe body lends to a think looking dark beer. the head is off white and one of the creamest and lingering heads i have seen. the lace on the glass just doesnt go away. I was expecting to get more from the smell but all i get is a typical lightly fruity, fresh hefe smell. The taste is very very smoth and balanced. the darker malt lends to a great balance. the hefe yeast still contributes it's fruity esters. not as much banana flavor as other breweries. And a crisp clean finish is classic. beeing a hefe the mouthfeel is solid, but erdinger has the thickest mouth feel i think. some of it has to do with the release of the carbonation when you drink it, so bubbles froth in your mouth. due to the balanced flavor, and overall light, crisp, and refreshing nature of this beer and style this is for sure a full on session beer

WOW! Pours an almost black color, with dark brown at the flute of the glass. A large head unless poured at an extreme angle. Just a perfect taste, almost like no taste because it is so agreeable. I ordered this off of a whim from my favorite bar in London. It has a pseudo creamy taste almost like a stout but much easier to swallow. It has a slight chocolaty finish, but for the most part there aren't any tastes that jump out at you.

When poured into my glass, this beer had a medium sized head with small bubbles. The lacing was good on the sides of my glass and there was some carbonation observed with this beer. I found this beer to be very smooth along with a very good flavor. This is a beer that I definitely could drink all night at a bar or party. Party on!!

This beer pours a clear, very dark, brown with 2" thick head and lace lasting to the finish. It's aroma has hints of banana, dark chocolate, and bread. The flavor is very well balanced between banana, chocolate, malt sweetness, and hoppy bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium, smooth, and has the right amount of carbonation. Erdinger Weissbier Dunkel is an outstanding beer, very drinkable, an excellent example of the style. Highly recommended!!
