4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a beautiful yellow - much like the label on the bottle - just with far more ’pang’ to it. It is very murky and has lots of bubbles in the liquid. Head is milky white and looks creamy from the top. Aroma is stunning for the type - exotic fruits, wheat, banana and very sweet. Surprisingly full mouthfeel with small bubbles dancing on my tongue. Flavour is mild, well-rounded and super. There is an initial vanilla edge to the banana/wheat combo, then a lingering floral bitterness breaks through. Long aftertaste, dominated by the mild hops and a touch of well-placed sourness. The weisse to beat Maisel’s.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2013 1)Bottled. Milky, lemon curd haziness with a creamy but short-lived head of froth. Thick, creamy palate. Tropical fruit bubblegum sweetness in the nose. Fruity but fairly abrupt. Finishes with a clean, savoury wheatiness. A bit wishy-washy for the ABV and not as rounded as fruitier specimens. But still a silky treat. 746414=3.5
2) Couple of bottles from Arden Wines, 22/09/13, one toppled all over the worktop impersonating Partridge. Big banana, bubblegum and mauby aroma. Viscid, effervescent and awash with spicy esters suggesting Bazooka chews, coriander and overripe bananas on toast sprinkled with clove and cinnamon. Blew Baumburger and Hacker Pschorr out of the water. 848416=4.

On tap at Reading BF 2007, bottled bright and drunk on train on way home. Cloudy orange/gold with thin white head. Banana, some cereal cardboard aroma. Very light and lemony in mouth. More lemon/banana than some. Finish has a lemon curdy zest that is pleasing. Full yet soft. Really rather nice. A lighter weisse.

Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Balanced sweet malt flavor with some acidic. Refreshing sweet finish with hint of acidic at the very end.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2007 Bottled. An unclear dark golden beer with a huge, rocky and persistent white head. The aroma is wheaty, yeasty and malty with notes of banana, lemon and cloves. Some light bread too. The flavour has a medium sweetness and a good level of a lovely refreshing acidity. A very light herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Banana and lemon are well present together with some spiciness. Medium to full body, strong carbonation, long aftertaste. perfectly balanced and not too filling, how I like in a hefeweizen. As usual a very interesting product from Andechser, that I really appreciate.

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.
