Today I opened up a bottle of Erdinger’s Hefe-Weizen Dunkel which comes in at a 5.3% ABV. This is what I would consider to be a session beer, and from the taste I can drink about 5 of them in a day if possible. This Dunkel looks like dark wood, the tint is of mahogany with a bread-like, creamy head that has limited retention. The aromas to Erdinger’s Dunkel is reminiscent of toasted bread, with the wheat taking center stage. The flavor pairs well with it but, with a surprisingly added subtle astringency to it when it washes down your throat. It still is smooth and enjoyable. This is certainly a classic style of beer and one of my new favorite German beers.
