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%).

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Bottle. A - Very dark chestnut brown with some ruby hues. About average sized rocky, foamy, light beige head. Disappears fairly fast with no lacing left, but a lot of bubbles. S - A lot of banana and caramel malt. Very much like a banana bread. Fair amount of bubblegum as well. Some clove and citrus along with a touch of other fruitiness. Nice typical dunkelweizen aroma. T - Similar to the nose. Strong banana and caramel flavor with some nutty flavor. Similar to a banana bread. Some clove taste as well. Some fruit apart from the banana gives it a bit of a fruitcake taste as well. The flavors are a bit on the thin side, but they are enjoyable. M - Medium to light body, with it being a bit more on the light side, with a bit above average carbonation. Pretty fizzy feel. D - Really easy to drink beer. With pretty typical dunkelweizen flavors. None of the flavors are too strong or overpower the palate, but it has a good amount of flavor. Notes: Best before 29/09/10. Overall a nice dunkelweizen. WEll balanced and flavorful, all though it was a bit thin. It didn’t blow me away, but was a solid beer.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 2, 2010
0.5 L bottle brought home from KaDeWe, Berlin. Airy tan head. Unclear, brownish-red body. Toasted malts, banana esters and a whiff of yeast in the aroma. Crisp wheaty malt flavor, properly sweet and rounded. A nice touch of fruity acidity down below, also notes of mild spices. Well-bodied. Fresh, dryish malt finish. What a Dunkelweissen, Andechser rules!

ClubGonzo (5359) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 16, 2010
Pours a very dark body, even for a dunkel weizen, with a thin white head. Smells of dense caramel. Taste is banana and dark malts. Mellow and drinkable, but nothing great in any characteristic.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2010
Deep, dark brown pour with an unyielding tan head. Looks amazing. Aroma isn’t as great. Cloves, dark bread, vegetables. Hmm. Flavor is equally underwhelming. More bitter than your average dunkleweizen. Not getting any tasty fruit notes. This tastes really old, but the date on the bottle tells me it should be alright. Maybe it wasn’t stored properly, not sure. Mouthfeel is good for the style. Not sure whats going on here, but this is not as great as I was hoping it would be. Still decent though.

rakkasan (142) - Bresso, ITALY - FEB 2, 2010
bottle - pours dark brown with a medium light brown frothy head. The aroma was caramel, banana, cookie and raisin with a faint bit of spice. The flavor was reminiscent of a stout, fruity with a slight hint of soy sauce, interesting brew.
