Kloster Andechs was founded in the 15th Century and brews at the Andechs Monastery in Bavaria.
The Andechs Weissbier Dunkel was first brewed in 1997 and is the most recent addition to the range of beers produced by the brewery. It uses Hallertau aroma hops and dark barley Gersten malts as well as Bavarian wheat. It weighs in at 5.0% and appears a luxurious chestnut colour with a fine white creamy head. The aroma from the weissbier dunkel is that of fruit notes of banana and pineapples merging with the dark malts providing hints of caramel and cocoa. The beer itself has a soft body and elegance about its light hop bitterness that works wonderfully with the sweet caramel. The dunkel, from Andechs Holy Mountain, then surprises with a refreshingly satisfying finish.
