4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy dark brown color, medium sized tan head. Smokey! Didn’t expect that. So, aroma is roasted malt, banana, oak, bacon, wheat. Oily texture. Thin body, average carbonation. Probably the best Dunkelweizen I’ve had so far.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Heavy cereal and nutty for the malt, moderate hop and yeast notes of herbs and dough, with hints of date, nutmeg and brown sugar. Head is huge, creamy, off-white with thick and crusty lacing and is fully lasting. Color is clear dark brown. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lighlty to moderately acidic, then finishes faintly sweet and lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, slick, with a lively carbonation. Nice light and spicy Dunkelweizen with everything in its place.

Bottle from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA. Pours hazy dark cola color with a creamy light tan head. Dark malt and banana ester for nose. Med body. There seems to be spicy hop, and the dark malt and banana. It finishes fairly dry, maybe a bit too dry, with that nice malt and banana. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer is a deep brown with a good-sized light tan head. Dissipates a big quicker than expected. The liquid is very cloudy, at least with the yeast intentionally poured in, so not a huge shock. The aroma is a nice German weissbier clove-banana mix with darker malt fruit and sweetness on top. The dark malt adds an almost Belgian raisin, prune, date flavor with caramel and molasses sweetness. I appreciate the added complexity, but it’s a bit like adding caramel sauce to a fried banana, sweet on top of sweet. The taste is moderately sweet but seems more sugary than that. Light fruity twang in the finish. Some acidity that seems to come from the carbonation more than anything. Mouthfeel is a bit too thin. Prickly carbonation that seems to take away from the creaminess. Not bad, but I was hoping for a bit more from Andechs.
