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.

obguthr (4216) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Banana, graham cracker, chocolate aroma. Clear brown, not super dark, thick tan head. Caramel and graham cracker flavor, tangy lemon accents. Light body, soft carbonation. A bit lacking in richness, and a little too tangy. I wish it tasted like it smells.

2014 Philly Beer Week draft @ Bierstube. Poured hazy nut brown with a 1-finger off-white head. Aroma of banana esters, nutty malt, and a touch of yeast. Medium body, lightly fizzy, with a brief and lightly dry finish. Flavor of nutty malt with a note of caramel or toffee mixed in. A light note of biscuity yeast at the back, as well as a touch of banana esters.

Bottle. Yeast, overriped red fruits, spices, vanilla and caramell hints on nose. Taste. Cherries, chocolate and some coffee notes too. Dry flavor of cherries peel in aftertaste. High carbonated and very drinkable. Surprisingly, it was so tasty!

PapaSkeetSkeet (953) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Chestnut brown, like the eyes of a Tolstoyan Princess, with a half-inch of cappuccino head, moderate coarseness. Aroma is caramel, moist grass, biscuit/scone, light-brown sugar, bit of rye grain. Body is medium-light, watery oily, with a medium-light carbonation of proportional burn and moderate bubble size. Flavor is grassy, slightly farmy, multigrain bread, a mere touch of caramel (rather dry compared with the aroma.) Light apple.

MarkoNm (971) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 19, 2014
Pours a light brown color, topped with a decent cream colored head. Mild malty aroma, some nice notes of chocolate and caramel. Starts sweet and slightyl roasty later on, finishes with an easy bitterness and caramel notes. Not too bad, yet nothing really special.
