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%).

lusikka (7681) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2011
500 ml bottle. BBE 17.02.2012.
Pours a hazy deep yellow colour with a small, thick, white head. Aroma of sweet malts, wheat and some spices. Flavour of sweet malts, caramel, wheat, citrus, banana, spices and light bitter hops. Medium bodied, very smooth mouthfeel and a sweet, wheaty, light fruity finish. Refreshing and very tasty. One of the best Hefeweizens I’ve tasted so far.

When you think of German Hefes, This is the example you are thinking of. Smuggled this home from Germany and wish I had more. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a big frothy white top. Aroma is intense banana esters and wheat. Taste is a pleasure. Big banana, big body wheat, loads of yeast character. Man this is a great beer.
