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%).

On tap at the brewery. Also from a bottle from Total Wine. Andechs is the third place i visit when in Bavaria after convenient stops at Hofbrauhaus and Lowenbrau Haus.

Mahagony brown with big off white fluffy head. Initial aroma of banana and bread, light roast and a little spice come out soon. Flavor to match the nose. A little prickly on the feel, but good.

luttonm (6956) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2017
Queen Anne Beerhall, Seattle. Creamy head, dark chocolate brown, cloudy Weiss body. Note of sweetness on nose, but it’s mostly drier chocolate roast malt. Sweet sip, plenty from the malt character, lightened by creamy wheat. Some sweet roast. Easy drinking, some cloying banana and metallic notes. Not bad, but not my favorite in the style.
