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.

A: Poured into a Hofbrau Munchen stein. Murky mahogany brown. Suspended yeast sediment. 2 finger frothy and foamy head settles quickly to creamier film.

S: Lots of clove and banana. Moderate wheat and bread notes. Low bubblegum scent. Roasted caramel malt.

M: Creamy but light bodied. Soft and fluffy. Medium carbonation dries it up.

T: Plain and simple, like a slice of chocolate chip banana bread. Light twang of bubblegum, toffee, brown sugar, walnuts, cracked wheat, and hop spice. This beer is just as good in summer with its light body as it is in the winter months with its comforting flavor.

500 ml bottle was poured into a hefeweizen glass.

Appearance: A two finger off white head was poured that reduced to a puffy layer. It is a dark brown black color with no vision of anything. That was expected for this style of beer.

Smell: Bananas, cloves, spice, caramel, bready wheat, loaf of bread, and Noble hops.

Taste: Nice Bavarian yeast, caramel, toffee, chocolate, bready wheat, and a loaf of delicious bread.

Mouthfeel: Filling, hearty, chewy, tasty, medium carbonation, and medium to full bodied.

Overall: So much flavor for a 5% beer. This style and doppelbocks are becoming a favorite of mine. This brewery makes both. Both if which are awesome stuff.

Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a medium brown color, with a large dense off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains wheat, bananas, caramelized malts and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of wheat and a hearty malt character. Then some mildly sweet flavors of caramel, bananas and chocolate come in. The hops presence is mild but very complementary creating a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, very good representation of style, this is a nice beer to drink for a long time if you’re in the mood for the style.

500mL into a weizen glass. Pours a clear cola brown w/ a nice creamy mocha head, good carbonation.

Aroma is mellow banana and clove, some other spices.

Taste is overripe (brown) banana and winter spices. Clean and crisp, just a hint of grain. Good clean water.

Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, really nicely balanced.

Overall, yes. This is a very nice beer. Simple and elegant.
