AKA Andechser Dunkles Weissbier

Andechser Weissbier Dunkel has been the perfect completion to the Andechs monastery brewery’s range of products since 1997. This dark Weissbier retains its aromatic character thanks to the select choice of Hallertau aroma hops and highest quality Bavarian wheat and dark barley malts. Its characteristic, distinctive maroon colour is a feast for the eyes. Then there’s the opalescence and fine structure of the yeast turbidity. The perfect complement is provided by the very creamy, fine pored head. This dark Weissbier from the Holy Mountain will delight connoisseurs with a harmonious interplay of fruity odours, above all ripe bananas and pineapple, with undertones of caramel and cocoa. Andechser Weissbier Dunkel teases the tongue with a delicate tanginess carried by a round, soft body. A light caramel sweetness harmonises well with the fine hoppy bitterness. It concludes on a soft and refreshing note (original extract: 12.5%, abv: 5.0%).

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2016 On tap at Andechser am Dom. Aroma is a little bitter, little clove and a little fruity. Essentially a bad fruit cake. Pours dark brown with lots of head which lasts for ages with a few bubbles visible. Tart to start, then plenty of banana raisins and bread. Little bit spicy and a little bit tart to finish.

degbert (1705) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle. Pours a deep, hazy red-brown with a high, creamy, mixed-grained, light brown head. Nose is a little muted because of the pillowy head, but has tea, caramel, smoke, cocoa, fruity, earthy, and meaty notes; it’s a very solid nose. On the tongue, it starts out caramel and chocolate, then swings in with tea, smoke, and bitterness; well balanced and integrated, without any of the odd ’sticking-out’ flavors of some dunkelweissen. Smooth, but strong enough to make you stand up and take notice. Finish is long, dry, and smoky. Note to all American brewers who try to brew a dunkelweiss; this is your target. Good luck.

Frisch vom Hahn in Meißen getrunken. Das erste und bisher einzigste Weizen, wo ich Röstaromen rausgeschmeckt habe.

SG111 (1296) - New York, USA - JUL 10, 2016
Tap at Zum Schneider, Montauk. Pours dark Burgundy, chestnut. Off white head. Aroma is clove, wheat, caramel, fig, toffee. Flavor is caramel, toffee, wheat, light lemon. super creamy body. Nice actually. That’s a bit different than I’m used to from German beer. Flavor is kinda light but the creaminess is reminiscent of nitro.

Delicious! Immediate nice thick head and when you sip the deep dark roasted barley/malt flavors arise. Smooth and delightful to sip on. Slightly burnt aftertaste but not a deal-ender!

heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 6, 2016
May. ’15. On tap at Andechser am Dom. This one poured hazy brown body with a huge, lightly off white head atop. Weaker, but really fine aroma, caramel, cocoa and weizen fruits beneath. Flavor was weak, too, although complex. Both lightly sweet and bitter, with range of toasted malt flavors along with wheat notes in the far background. Thin to medium body, moderately long chalky, yet more like sweet dunkel, toasted finish. Although subtle for the style it was quite good and a bit positively (maybe) atypical Dunkelweizen.
