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%).

Rating No.2000
Bottled(500ml). -Pours a cloudy dark brown colour with big beige head and wheaty acidic nose. Lively carbonation. The aroma is typical weizen, very wheaty, fruity and yeasty with notes of cinnamon and strong banana flavor. Also light spicy, milk chocolate and roasted notes. Very good milestone brew.

kappldav123 (5279) - GERMANY - MAR 1, 2008
The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Tastes too malty and too frutiy, too much like plum. Only an average hefeweizen.

darkseduction (638) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2008
Bottle 50cl. Pours rather dark, thick white head. Tastes of dark roasted malt, coffee. Fizzy carbonation, refreshing. Yeast taste too much in the background in my opinion. A good Dunkelweizen but there are much better beers from this brewery.

Drake (9544) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2008
Bottle. Thanks to bierkoning! Pours a muddy dark brown with a fizzy medium head. Aroma of banana and chocolate. Taste is more of the same, with coffee sneaking in at the end.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2008
Nose of wheat, banana, malt and toffee. Pours a lovely caramel colour beer with a lofty head. Taste is a flurry of wheat, malt and hops. A bitter sweet finish make this a throughly enjoyable beer.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2007
On tap in Munich on 6/6/07: Pours a murky dark mahogany with a large, frothy light tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet caramel malt and wheat with some toasty bready notes. Body starts fairly full and well-carbonated with some dark caramel malty sweetness and a hint of clove spice. Well-balanced and drinkable.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Fantastic dunkel malt and banana ester aroma,probaly the best in this style I ’ve ever experienced ,like a banana under your nose while your in a chocolate bakery, taste is initial banana and rich dark German Malts,but the palate quickly diminishes to a sharp thin wheat taste,and finishes almost watery. The thinness haunts the beverage the rest of the glass, it chased my pizza nicely but it had such promise for more. A little higher OG bitte

JorisPPattyn (8125) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 17, 2007
Stupendously huge beige head, slowly collapsing over totally opaque brown beer. Very creamy nose, with bananaester, but also milk chocolate, and wheat - slightly sourish-smelling. Dark, and dry malts, slight acidity (again typically wheadt), and fruity (near citrus). Finish is again creamy-fruity, and milk chocolate. Retronasal a touch of hops. Wheat slickness, medium bodied. Quality Weisse.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2009 Draft from Andescher am Dom. Dark brown, chocolate color, cloudy, dense with big thick stable head. Clean, sweet hefe and banana ester aromas. Not at all sticky. The beer is a bit on the thin side but it’s very drinkable. Nice sweetness that never becomes cloying.
