3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught Good white head over fully hazy yellow-orange beer. Spicey-bittery nose (nutmeg, ginger) and banana-orange mix. Whiffs of CO². Sweetish-sourish with good balance fruit-wheat-grain. Sourish finish (fruity and lightly lactic) and banana. Not really pappery, but quite full-bodied. Better than average Weisse. Nose is intriguing.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sour, candylike clove aroma accentuated by noble hops. One of the whitest I’ve seen: opaque pineapple juice with a touch of guava added. Foamy cover quickly recedes to wisps. Flavour is out of balance in the hops, which also give off a late bitterness that detracts from this beer. Otherwise, pleasant phenolics that are masked by a minearal watery feel and taste. Medium body, elevated carbonation, slightly metallic.

I don’t really like weisses, but this is one of the better ones. I will have to re-evaluate this one, but at the moment I can say it’s quite drinkable without excessive sweetness.

Vom fass @ Andescher am Dom, München, Germany.
The peak of Summer, the sun now directly upon us and the little shade outside barely enough to shelter us from the heat, but who cares really.. We found the Andescher brewery tap!!!
Second of many fine beers. Into a weissbier glass it presented well. Massive, layered, rocky white crown atop an opaque, pastel gold body tinged by a chestnut hue. Carbonation was typically high, erupting from eddying streams inside. Subtle ripe banana and fresh squeezed lemons on the nose, quite fresh. More zingy lemons and banana inside to be joined by some original grapefruit, apple and pear flavours to make for a very juicy palate indeed. Its light in body and the carbonation makes sure it bounces across the tongue but is not harsh or upsetting. Finish is crisp, a light band-aid note, definite cloves in there before it fades out to leave just a little banana and bubblegum. A sour edge becomes pronounced as it heats up, sweetness is well-controlled and it honestly tastes better more cool than chilled. A nicely balanced, intricately created ’hefe’. This monastic brewery cannot do anything wrong. This was lovely stuff.
