Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Drank from my Erdinger weizen glass.

A - Pours a hazy amber colour with an off white two fingered head that reduces to a film.

S - Hints of caramel malt and banana and a little sweetness.

T - Nice caramel flavours up front with a srong spiceyness follwing before some clove and banaa kick in. A little hoopy and crisp on the finish.

M - Medium body and carbonation.

Drinkability is also very good. I finished my glass quickly and could have a few more.

O - Well worth a shot
