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%).

Veer (362) - Landskrona, - OCT 10, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2008 Aroma: very nice, spicy yeast, seville orange, cloves, cointreau, banana & dark malt. Pumpernickel and dried berries. Vaguely of toffee & glühwein.
Flavour: initially malty & hoppy. Not as sweet as expected. Pleasantly semidry... Mild but full-bodied with warm vanilla- & liquorice-notes. Very good for this gravity,
Appearance: cloudy - the dirty orange brown hue gives it an almost ancient feel. Topped by a beautifully creamy, longlived head (light beige cream coloured).
Palate: smooth, thick & creamy... Slightly slimy. Very rustic yet elegant.

corby112 (2704) - 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.

flemmingwillum (1108) - Nysted, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2015
Flaske på Fastings Alle. Naturligvis uklar brun øl med stor skumkrone. Velduftende dunkelweizen med masser af frugtig hvede og et mildt strejf ristet malt . Forholdsvis sød dunkelweizen med en del banan. Kalkagtig og skummende fyldig i munden. Ok.
