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.

MarkoNm (765) - 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.

keanex (1503) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle L3013.
Glass: Weizen glass.
Appearance: Hazy chestnut body with sediment in suspension. The head is massive with great retention and a foamy and dense light tan hue.
Aroma: Bready malts mingle with hints of caramel, chocolate, underripe banana, pepper and clove. Aroma is a tad weak, but nicely balanced and complex.
Taste: Much like the aroma this is a complex and balanced beer. Bready semi-sweet intro with hints of caramel lead to a light cocoa coating over a almost ripe banana. The finish has a light clove and bubblegum presence. Very enjoyable.
Palate: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Reminds me of soda going flat.
Overall: This is an outstanding dunkel and it’s available at a great price. I’m very happy with this. 500ml of a world class dunkle for $3? Yes please!

bonkiedeaap (312) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle from Trinkgut in Goch. The beer has dark brown, yet little hazy color and a nice cream colored head, with living carbonation. The aroma is very fruity, with clear tones of citrus and bananas. Also light tones of yeast, a light sweetness of caramel and a little cacao. The taste is full and soft. A little sour and refreshing in the beginning to change into a nice sweetness of from the caramel. The finish is a nice hoppy bitterness which is very refreshing. Well done this dunkelweizen.

Erzengel (3553) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 22, 2014
Wie das helle Weißbier ist das Dunkle schön weich. Die tollen Nelken-Bananenaromen werden von einer leichten röstigen Malzigkeit ergänzt. Nicht zu trocken, schön karamellig-dunkel und sehr weich süffig.

50cl bottle at home. Slightly hazy amber brown with a full somewhat off-white head. Light to medium body with ditto carbonation. Nice sweetness with some bitter tones. Banana, some caramel, wheat and some roasted malts. A nice German Dunkelweizen.

Draft: pours dark brown with a big foamy head, nice banana aroma, taste is malty, banana with an unfortunate watery finish. Good but no Aventinus.

Fatehunter (1399) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Pours a finger and half of head on a cloudy light brown colored body. The aroma is wet grain, light caramel and slight chocolate. The taste is amazing: caramel, toasted malt, plum and a little banana. Excellent balance. The texture is smooth and soft with a nice fizzy. The taste and texture are both outstanding.

Ughsmash (7182) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 8, 2014
500mL bottle. Poured smoky medium orange with a creamy, sticky beige head. The aroma picked up toasted chocolate, biscuity malts, and a bit of overripe banana accented by cloves and a little grass.. great! The flavor opened with tart wheat and lemony notes, with more meaty, biscuity wheat and cocoa powder following.. mostly tart wheat and cloves on the dry, almost empty finish. Medium-bodied with creamy carbonation through the palate.. it was great until the end, where things fell off too quickly.
