In 1997 the monastery brewery on the Holy Mountain further expanded its product range with Andechser Weißbier Dunkel featuring a roast aroma.
The aromatic character of this dark wheat beer is maintained by selecting the best wheat and barley malts from Bavarian malthouses and aroma hops from Hallertau.
It appeals to the eye with its pronounced, typical chestnut colour. The yeast turbidity is matt and finely structured. It is topped by a very creamy and fine-pored head. For the connoisseur’s nose, the dark wheat beer from the Holy Mountain offers a harmonious interplay of fruit aromas, in particular ripe banana and pineapple, with caramel and cocoa tones in the background.
Andechser Weißbier Dunkel is elegant and lively to drink, featuring a round and soft body. A light caramel sweetness harmoniously combines with the fine hop bitterness. It is soft and refreshing in the finish.
