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.

bosta (97) - SLOVENIA - FEB 16, 2014
0,5l bottle. Pours dark amber color almost black with a nice tan head which leaves good lacing. The aroma is typical dark weissbier – fruity aroma (especially banana) mixed with yeast and roasted malt (coffee with a chocolate and caramel). The flavor is similar. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. Very drinkable. A very good dunkelweizen.
