Erdinger "Hefe-Weizen Dark"
Erdinger Weissbräu - Erding, Germany
Dunkel (ABV 5.6%)

[Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]

Rating: 3.15/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6.5/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a hazy dark caramel brown with an average tan fizzy head that totally dissipated and had virtually no lacing to speak of.

The aroma was of a toasted dark malt and a sweaty doughy yeast with notes of caramel, dark fruit (plums and prunes) and a light scent of alcohol.

The taste was much like the aroma with a lightly sweet acidic maltiness a touch of caramel and a mild dose of fruit throughout, with the finish having a much yeastier appeal and strongly effervescent. The flavor was rather short in duration, disappearing quickly off the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was lighter than expected in body for a Dunkel with a watery texture and an extremely fizzy carbonation.

Overall this was a pretty tasty brew, although nothing over the top. I could see myself sippin' on a few of these on a nice hot day...
