Erdinger Hefe-Weisen Dark

Type: dark hefeweisen
Origin: Erding, Germany
Price: $3.29 per 16 oz

Dark hefeweisen? Sounds interesting, sign me up. Epic fail. One would expect a dark hefeweisen to have a nice wheaty citrus flavor with maybe some more malted notes, perhaps something complex and overpowering. Nope, not with this one. It is literally like water. And I'm not talking about the way people refer to American light macrobrews, where they just repeat the same shit some uppity birkenstock wearing douche said while talking about the value of their liberal arts degrees. No, this one actually is like water. The smell is a very subdued hefe. I wrote in my notes: not sweet, not bitter, entirely uninteresting.
