COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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%).

Bottle brown, 500 ml
Appearance: Pours with medium, off - white, slightly beige head colour, it is frothy in texture and quite quickly decreasing to small in size. The lacing is smaller than the one of ’Andechser Weissbier Hefetrub’ but still exist. Body looks medium, is cloudy, opaque and brown in colour with some reddish shades. Carbonation of body is weak.
Aroma: Whipped cream, Munich malt, slightly toasty malted barley and typical for ’Andechs’ beer, flowery hops with a noticable hint of clover. Gentle banana note, some fresh juicy sweetness. Caramel, burned sugar. All in all aroma is more intensive than in ’Andechser Weissbier Hefetrub’ especially due to smaller head but in fact it is one of the most interesting aroma of Dunkel Weizen style of beer I’ve had so far.
Flavour: Front is mild and salty on tongue, carbonation on palateis salty and quite lively what creates very impressive profile. There are pronounced notes of toastyness and later on roastyness on palate. Finish duration is medium to long.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is smooth, between wattery to creamy, carbonation on palate is quite lively. Finish feel is a bit chalky and slightly accidic.

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2008
Hazy, dark brown with a nice head. The aroma has notes of clove, wheat and banana. The flavour is full-bodied considering this is a dunkel weiss. It has notes of clove, caramel, wheat, banana and it’s really, really nice.
