Andechser Weizenbock

Weizenbock as a typical seasonal speciality is available from October to February. It is brewed and bottled exclusively at the foot of the Holy Mountain.

Since mid-October of 2020, Weizenbock as the monastery brewery’s first top-fermented bock beer is available by the cask, in bottles and also in the Bräustüberl. Many beer lovers asked for Weizenbock after its successful 2018 “première” in the Bräustüberl.

A characteristic bock beer
Andechser Weizenbock attracts the eye with its strong honey colour. A structured yeast turbidity and opulent, fine-pored head complete the visual appearance. Striking fruit aromas of banana, mango, apricot and pear with underlying spicy aromatic notes such as clove and nutmeg surprise the nose. The body is strongly defined yet soft. Andechser Weizenbock is wonderfully tangy and refreshing to drink. A perfect interplay of discreet fruit acidity, slight honey sweetness and fine hop bitterness in the background culminates in a harmonious, fruity finale.

Team accomplishment
Alexander Reiss, Operations Manager of the monastery brewery, is looking forward to the Andechser Weizenbock: “Our team of master brewers comprised of Manuel Rössle, Jürgen Scholz, Andreas Stürzer and myself created Andechser Weizenbock with the typical Andechs wheat beer taste, but also with the lean, full-bodied, hop-heavy bock beer flavour our other bock beers are famous for.”

Josef Eckl, Manager of the Bräustüberl: “Not just our regulars but also many visitors have asked for this bock beer speciality time and time again. This makes it all the more pleasing that we are able to offer Andechser Weizenbock to our guests again.”
