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%).

(Flasche) Es hat eine braune bis schwarze Farbe, ist trüb mit einer fast weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist hefig, malzig, Honignote und retronasal eine Röstnote. Der Geschmack ist eher schlank, samtig, hefig, prickelnd und leicht röstig. Im Abgang erstärkt die Röstnote.

Pours a murky hazelnut brown color, with a medium sized, froth head. Smells of unripe banana and earth covered cherries, together with a decent spiciness. Offers a subtle smokiness with more, riper banana. Has a higher carbonation with an utmost soft mouthfeel to it, due to the mellowing yeast pillow, building the foundation of this, together with a stony mineral quality to it. Tastes of banana peel thrown onto forest earth, while offering smoked ham underneath, adding a unique twist to the earth. Together with an incredible smoothness, peppery spices and minerals become visible, resulting into an enjoyable refreshment. Finishes very clean, with earthy malts and a subtle sourness, providing a silk aqueous softness. This is an easy drinker with a lot of strongheaded character to it. Never experienced smoked malts and banana in the same drink before, but it works out really well, with yeast balancing the taste throughout.

JK (5650) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2016
My first beer of 2016. bottled. This beer has a fantastic appearance. Dark brown, a khaki colored head, and an abundance of sediment floating in the beer, which might be unappealing to some drinkers. Strong aroma of banana and clove. More of these in the flavor, but here there is a mild roasted character as well. Surprisingly lively palate. Some chocolate. A fantastic beer, without a doubt one of the best dunkelweizens to be found anywhere.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Pours a cloudy dark chestnut brown color with dark amber edges and a two finger, frothy off-white head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Very good retention, taking a while to settle and leaving sporadic streaks of soapy lacing behind. Inviting aroma with a nice balance of zesty spice, bready yeast, light fruit, citrus and slightly roasted malt. Very peppery with a strong clove presence followed by sourdough bread, banana and bubblegum. There’s also a decent amount of citrus peel but it’s somewhat overshadowed by the darker malt bill. Subtle roast with sweeter caramel, toffee, hazelnut and biscuit character. Nice complexity in the nose with a decent roasted malt presence that’s well integrated into the weisse bier elements. Medium body with soft carbonation and a strong peppery spice presence up front that lingers over the yeast, citrus and sweeter malt notes into a spritzy, tart finish. Hints of black pepper and clove dominate at first but are soon countered by some sourdough bread and banana before some citric acidity kicks in on the back end. The malt presence isn’t as prominent as in the nose but it’s still evident with subtle roast and hints of toasted malt, hazelnut, caramel and toffee. Decent amount of sweetness without taking away from the classic wheat beer flavors. Slightly tart lemon juice/pith flavor toward the back of the palate. Crisp and refreshing and while it’s heavier than an average weissebier, it’s still pretty easy to drink.
