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%).

Kristall-König (2678) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 21, 2011
Interessante Farbe: Orange an Honig erinnernd. Dabei extrem milchig eingetrübt. Hefiger, bananiger Geruch mit Einflüssen von geräuchertem Schinken. Geschmacklich bananig-fruchtig - wenig malzig. Dafür süffig und perlige Qualitäten. Rauchiger Hintergrund. Durstlöschendes HW der angenehmen Sorte. Könnt ich wieder trinken.

Finwe (426) - Grankulla, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2011
500 ml bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow with thick, white head. Yeasty, yet fresh, wheat-like flavour with citric notes and some banana. Hint of sourness. Quite lively carbonated, but the palate is smooth nevertheless. A really nice Hefeweizen.

Defreni (2920) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2011
Flaske: Gulorange uklar øl med et kæmpe skumhoved. Klassisk Hefe. Duft af banan og en smule gær, hvilket jo næsten er det samme i dette tilfælde. Ikke så frisk i smagen som jeg havde ønsket mig og karboneringen er næsten ikke eksisterende. Ville have været bedre med en anelse mere.

Vom faß at the abbey, a solid Hefeweizen, not at the pinnacle, but packed with deliciousness.
