COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Andechser Weissbier Hefetrüb.

When summer is on the way and the days invite you to swim, ramble, climb, or simply enjoy the outdoors, you will discover that an Andechser Weissbier Hell is just the right thing to quench your thirst. Since Saint Joseph’s Day on 19 March 1993, Andechs Weissbier Hell has found many new friends. Untreated and bottled in its natural state of yeasty turbidity, this is a top fermented beer for the epicure. Its light honey colour makes it an immediate eyecatcher. Then there’s the opalescence and fine structure of the yeast turbidity. At the same time, the creamy, fine pored head invites you to get to know this light Weissbier from the Holy Mountain. You’ll need two takes to enjoy the aromas to the full. First, distinctive fruity aromas like banana and honeydew melon come to the fore, followed by fine cloves. Andechser Weissbier Hell is a very tangy, refreshing treat with the conviction of a full, soft body. It concludes on a finely balanced interplay of light sweet honey and a delicate acidity with undertones of bitter hoppiness that quickly subside into a harmonious aftertaste. A Weissbier that embodies a slice of the Andechs lifestyle: finely yeasty, tangy, and sparkling, it refreshes and renews the thirst for more (original extract: 12.5%; abv: 5.5%).

Your typical Weissbier, has everything you would expect and is therefore just great to drink. I like the cloudiness

Shared w/ SkyCop32. Picked up at Maruhn Getränke in Darmstadt. Pours a hazy golden orange. Aromas of bread/bananas/ and some fruit. Had a taste of yeasty bread with some spice. Not as clove/banana as most Hefs I’ve tried. I would actually seek this one out.

inbirraveritas (1330) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 9, 2009
0.5 l bottle. Hazy orange colour, nice rocky head (which remains like whipped cream), lively (nearly fizzy) carbonation. Smell of yeast and citrus fruit. The taste is sourish sweet, sharp, beside a good body and mild mouthfeel. Flavour’s of sweetish citrus with yeast. The finish is tart and light-bitter. For me a nice and special one and in postive meaning, not an average Hefeweizen.
