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%).

Bright fruitiness in the flavor with lots of clove, medium sweetness and a nice doughy wheat malt flavor. medium bodied with nice, ample carbonation.

hawthorne00 (3168) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 6, 2010
Bottle. Cloudy orange, large white head. Aroma has vanilla, banana, lemon, cloves. Light bready texture. Sweet with a big sour wheaty and lemony tang. Mildly spicy dryish finish with cloves and coriander. Yes, it’s a warm night and maybe this bottle has travelled particularly well, but wow. Just sweet enough and then almost austere sourness and vibrant spices - very refreshing without seeming inconsequential.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Best before Late November, consumed in early October. Absolute perfection in the body and look. Hefe to a T - lasting dense white head atop a superbly golden body. No clear pour here, this thing was trüb all the way! Moderate clove and quite heavy banana in the aroma, classic and excellent. The flavor has that classic, slightly acidic combination of wheaty tang, bubblegum (and banana) sweetness, clove spice. Wow. Impressive hefe, really top class.
