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%).

rudolf (2340) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Nose is banana & clove, slight butter presence in the malt, perhaps a hint of bubblegum. Flavor is banana, sweet malt w. slightly more prominent gum. A bit of lemon in the wheaty finish.

thewolf (11149) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2007
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.

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2007
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.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2007
Bottled. Very cloudy yellow colour with a rich and sticky white foam. Very fruity aroma of wheat, cloves, banana and wheat with mild spicy undertones. Medium-bodied with a very fruity and wheaty flavour of over-riped banans, Seville oanges and cloves. Creamy mouthfeel. Long, fresh finish of cloves, Seville oranges, banana and almonds.

harrisoni (13565) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2007
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.

Grovlam (4154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2007
Bottle. @ Copenhagen Øl Festival. Average white fizzy head that mostly lasted. Good lacing. Hazy orange color. Lovely aroma of banana, citrus, yeast, coriander, clove, caramel, fruit and wheat. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Balanced sweet malt flavor with some acidic. Refreshing sweet finish with hint of acidic at the very end.

omhper (19308) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2007
Draught at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Cloudy amber minimal head. Estery banana aroma with cloves and red berreis. Restrained malt sweetness, soft spritzy mouthfeel. Medium bodied and lightly fruity. Keeps restrained, well balanced and in perfect control. Has all you can ask of a hefeweizen.

Slayer85 (1044) - Firenze, ITALY - MAR 12, 2007
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.

JorisPPattyn (7879) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 10, 2007
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.
