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%).

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.

gripweed57 (602) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 23, 2014
500 ml bottle. Hazy reddish brown color topped by a big rocky beige head. Aroma of caramel, ripe banana and smoked sausage. Toasted wheat malt flavor has an underlying tangy character. Hints of banana and milk chocolate. Lovely creamy mouthfeel. Smooth and complex without the residual cloying sweet roasted maltiness you’d expect in a Traditional Dunkelweizen. Delicious!

RaduLuchian (39) - München, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2014
By far the best dunkel weissbier I’ve had so far. Opaque cloudy dark amber body, tall beige head and gentle charred wood very slightly fruity smell. The taste was of a soft dunkel, a bit bittery, carameled sugar, yeast and roasted malts. Excellent beer!

crazyvin (1906) - New York, USA - JUL 4, 2014
An opaque medium brown body with a thin tan head that had great retention and lace. Aroma had a nice bread like malt presence. Notes of chocolate, mild smoke and a nice wheat presence. Flavor was well balanced. Some nice rye bread notes and a hint of molasses. Mild chocolate and smoke in the finish. A good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

joeneugs (3118) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 29, 2014
On draft at Brotzeit. It pours a cloudy brownish amber with a thick khaki head. The aroma has banana pudding, toasty bread with light cinnamon and molasses. The flavor has nice notes of cinnamon and banana with some root beer. Light bodied and highly carbonated. Pretty tasty stuff.

ClaudeB04 (111) - Dudelange, LUXEMBOURG - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle, deep dark colour. Malty caramel notes, decent hints of the typical Weissbier citrus notes, long finish. I liked the refreshing taste and the fact that it wasn’t so heavy on my stomach.

Bottle. Pours a clear brown body under a one finger fizzy beige head. The nose is The nose is dark fruits and dark wheat with some nice fruity esters of overripe bananas and a little chocolate. The flavor is pretty nice, a mix of chocolate notes and fresh banana bread with some yeastiness. The finish really lingers on for quite a bit, begging you to take another sip. Medium bodied, rather soft and smooth with gentle fizzy carbonation. Excellent beer.
