4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampling from a very poor, very small, and very flimsy plastic cup in a a hotel. Nevertheless - Andechs is serious quality. Best before a month from now, this pours with a great head but not super turgid, settles to near nothing. Nice dark cola color. Aroma is a not predominant in any side - wheat tang, multigrain sweetness, acidity. Flavor is very sharp, singed, coffee-infused banana - with coffee grounds, but in a good way. Much less full-on sweet as some of my fave (and the best rated on RB) exemplars such as NG Black Wheat. Just more natural and earthy, grainy. Challenging beer, and different than the high-scoring American versions.

(.5L bottle best by 1-13-11 thanks to blutt59) clear brownish-orange with very nice lasting bubbles and lacing. Nose of chocolate malt, cream. Taste of cream, almond, sweet malt with a creamy body and linger of semi-sweet chocolate. Started off smelling better than it ended up tasting.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is dark fruit, yeast and caramel. The flavor is similar with dark fruit, caramel, toffee, yeast, bananas and cloves. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very good dunkelweizen from a very good brewery.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle from KaDeWe.
Appearance : Hazy brown with medium foamy and creamy head.
Aroma : Nice bananas, some spices and some malt. A bit of brown sugar.
Taste : Nice bananas with some spices. Hints of alcohol. Carbonation too intense for me (and for the style AFAIK).
Overall : Interesting banana profile (I always like it) but nothing more than the regular weisse. In fact I don’t think its better than the regular weisse. I just don’t get why one would "dunkel" a weizen...
