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%).

SG111 (1820) - New York, USA - JUL 10, 2016
Tap at Zum Schneider, Montauk. Pours dark Burgundy, chestnut. Off white head. Aroma is clove, wheat, caramel, fig, toffee. Flavor is caramel, toffee, wheat, light lemon. super creamy body. Nice actually. That’s a bit different than I’m used to from German beer. Flavor is kinda light but the creaminess is reminiscent of nitro.

AbbeyRoade (547) - Missouri, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Delicious! Immediate nice thick head and when you sip the deep dark roasted barley/malt flavors arise. Smooth and delightful to sip on. Slightly burnt aftertaste but not a deal-ender!

Pours a color slightly lighter than cola. Very lively mouthfeel. Notes of brown, sugar, metal, banana, and roasted nuts.

heavy (2817) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 6, 2016
May. ’15. On tap at Andechser am Dom. This one poured hazy brown body with a huge, lightly off white head atop. Weaker, but really fine aroma, caramel, cocoa and weizen fruits beneath. Flavor was weak, too, although complex. Both lightly sweet and bitter, with range of toasted malt flavors along with wheat notes in the far background. Thin to medium body, moderately long chalky, yet more like sweet dunkel, toasted finish. Although subtle for the style it was quite good and a bit positively (maybe) atypical Dunkelweizen.

3.7
blackisle (2577) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2016
Bottle 50cl. Poured into a weizen glass. Hazy deep amber, huge frothy beige head, good retention and lacing; aroma wheat, toasted malts, banana, cloves, yeast; fresh taste, medium sweet and light bitter, wheaty, fruity, light toasted malts, some caramel; aftertaste mild and a bit watery, light fruity sweetbitter, spicy notes; medium body, watery texture, average carbonation; fresh and pleasant, very quaffable.

thegreenrooster (4396) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 2, 2016
Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is a mix of dark bread with some cocoa powder. It also has some earthy dankness. Flavor is a decent chewy and nutty malt with a little banana and maybe a ever so slight vanilla. Again this beer is probably way better fresh at the source but I can see why this would be a top 50 dunkelweizen. A richer than usual malt makes this one special.

3.2
Ritzn (1380) - GERMANY - MAR 31, 2016
Dark brown with big soft light brown head. However some blocks of yeast swimming around in it (which i generally don’t find attractive), hence one of the lowest appearance scores I ever gave. Aroma is very convincing: marzipan banana and caramel, a little cocoa if I#m not mistaken. Taste is much less: a little sweetness and a little bitterness. Due to the carbonation also a natural sourness. Expected a richer and deeper taste. Body is also only medium and the finish is rather short. Overall still very nice.
