BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Erdinger Weissbräu
Germany
erdinger.de

Style: Dunkelweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Carefully selected dark malts with delicate roasting aromas give ERDINGER Dunkel its full-bodied flavor and strong character.

This elegant wheat beer has a lustrous, deep dark-brown appearance in the glass. The first sip reveals a harmonious symphony of carefully selected wheat and barley malts with exquisite Hallertau aroma hops. The taste buds detect hints of caramel, nuts and fresh bread. An unmistakable top-fermenting accent is provided by ERDINGER’s traditional yeast.

ERDINGER Dunkel first saw the light of day in 1989, when ERDINGER’s master brewers created a dark wheat beer as a birthday present for the private brewery’s owner, Werner Brombach. He liked it so much that he decided to put it on the market in 1990.

Pours a very dark brown similar to a cream stout. Three finger pillowy head that sticks all the way down the glass with great lacing. A light cocoa taste is followed by some corriander, clove, and banana. It’s light to medium bodied with tight medium carbonation. Just fantastic! A great session brew. My first time and this may become a go to. Don’t think this case will last past 2 sessions.

As part of a Dark side flight at Bier Markt Montreal - a must try.
A) NOt much to set apart, neither head, lace nor body. Brown pour.
S) NOt much here either Malts.
T) Cola like, sweet, wheat beer.
F) Feels clingy to my teeth and ready for a different pour.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a dark chocolate brown color with a thin velvety tan head. Head is thin but has excellent retention.

Aroma is rather subdued but there are some notes of wheat, roasted malts, little bit of clove and banana on the finish.

Taste has notes of wheat, toasted malts, lots of banana, hints of spice and clove on the back end. Hops play a complimentary role allowing the malts to shine.

Feel is smooth and creamy. Fizzy carbonation with a slightly dry finish.

Overall its a solid beer. I'd drink this one again.

Poured a cloudy dark brown color with tan foamy 2 finger head that dissipated to a thin retained film. Aroma was slight nuts, malt and bread. Faint malty taste with a hint of cloves and chocolate. The taste is a bit flat. Creamy moderate feel, moderate carbonation and a bit dry.

Brown. Cloudy. 2 finger off white head. Big bubbles. Some small. Ring around the glass with islands on the cap.
Wheaty. Banana. Clove. Honey sweetness.
Again, wheaty. Banana. Clove. Honey sweetness. But this time with more banana. And over ripe at that.
Body? Medium. Carbonation? Higher, but still...medium. Spicey, tingly mouth feel and finish.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Look- Dark beer, no clarity. Very little head, light lacing of white foam

Smell- Extremely malty smell, little to no hop identity in aroma. Caramel/coffee scents

Taste- Complex and rich malt taste; less sweet than what the smell may have led you to think. Bready aftertaste, just slight like the weizen.

Feel- Higher carbonation than appearance led me to think. No alcohol warmth. Bubbly sensation on top of mouth at height of sip.

Overall- Lighter tasting beer than what appearance and clarity portrays; will not drink again.

A wonderfully nice sessionable dark German beer. Enough flavor not to be boring, nothing offputting or extreme anywhere in this beer. Liked this one quite alot.
