BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Erdinger Weissbräu
Germany
erdinger.de

Style: German Dunkelweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Also labelled as Erdinger Hefe-Weizen Dunkel

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.

Pretty good. Good flavor. Notes of caramel. Not "wheaty" enough for a wheat beer. Overall just nothing special about it. Worth a try, but I doubt I'd repeat buy.... If I want a dunkelweizen I'll get weihenstephaner or franziskaner

I'm not sure what more anyone would want from a Dunkel, this a a terrific offering with an unfair rating imo.

Dark brown with a strong head. Sweet caramel malt nose. More creamy malt in the body and feel. A fine dunkel.

16.9oz bottle poured into a pilsner

Look:
Brown and murky. Fluffy light khaki head.

Smell:
Toasty malt and yeast. The German yeast.

Taste:
Ester-y dark fruit, some phenolic spice. Peppery and clove. Sour tartness. Sweet.

Feel:
Some sharp carbonation, then very easy and smooth as warms up.

Overall:
Refreshing and drinkable. It’s a “dark Hefeweizen”, and that is what it tastes like. I’d prefer either a true Hefeweizen or a dark bock, but not in-between. For that reason, thought it’s a good beer, I probably won’t get it again.

Pleasant - toffee / bread - but unremarkable especially at the price of an import.

After having the pikantus before this, not as much flavor. Still, nice dunkel, just very subtle flavors of Carmel and wheat.

I don't like, never drink, stout. I love this dunkel. Not as thick or strong flavoured as Guiness stout

A deep beer with a lightness, every time it pushes dark it pulls back. Grain is within slightly to curtain.

Taste rating in words: it's a shear curtian being held up, just before the show.

Decent Dunkel...

Loved the way it looked - dark, thick head, dissipating very fast. The smell had a strange floral scent, not appealing at all. Mouthfeel was light and a tad watery. The taste was full-mouthed barley, nutty, and the lightest hints of caramel. I really enjoyed this, of course, I am a bit warm on dunkels...
