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%).

TrefwoordPunk (820) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2009
Bottle 50 cl. Off course it pours cloudy, a cloudy yellow with a medium white head and an aroma of vinegar, citrus and some wheat. The flavour is citric, with notes of sour fruits, yeast and some malts. A nice medium sour finish. A good hefeweizen.

Brandman (2288) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 22, 2009
500 ml bottle. Aroma has lots of banana, nice addition of pear, too. Deep orange colour, little different than usual weisse. Could have been more thick, feels slightly watery. Great, though!

FatPhil (10095) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 29, 2009
UPDATED: APR 4, 2009 500ml bottle (BeerAngel.de)
Hazy pale orange, fizzy head. Slightly spritzy sour aroma, just past its BB date. Refreshing carbonation. A touch watery. Yeastiness is a bit earthy. Initial blast of fruity esters quite potent, but fades quickly. Hoppy finish is nice, but not enough to save this. I know I’ve had better ones of this. Should rerate.

It doesn’t look as most weizens, more orange then yellow. The aroma is typical, but has more citric notes than normal. Very solid taste, nothing too much in my opinion. I really liked it.

SeanMacGC (332) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 19, 2009
Draught in Kloster Andechs. Pours cloudy yellow-orange, with durable white head. Sweet citrus and spice on the nose, with similar on the palate, with notes of malt and yeast too. Very well balanced mouthfeel; archetypal Hefeweizen, a very decent beer.
