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%).

piscator34 (2152) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 13, 2010
On draft at De Wildeman. Pale gold in colour with strong carbonation. Typical hefeweiss aromas of banana, vanilla, and a bit of clove. Similar profile in the mouth and medium bodied, but with a nice snappy mineral note on the finish. Very refreshing.

armando629 (2451) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 30, 2010
0,5 l bottle, bought at Sörspecialista.hu
Poured hazy golden with a fantastic foamy-creamy white head that never disappeares. I slip the beer from under the foam....Fine banana aroma with some caramel, fruits like fig and green-apple, some citrusses, mild spicies. Lively carbonation, medium body with weizen-yeast-flavor, fruity, phenolic banana and citrusses, mild green apple again, some sweet mellifluous malt. Balanced spicy taste. Classic one.

judasbeer (431) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 23, 2010
Appearance: Cloudy, messy golden color. Fluffy, somewhat diminishing white head sits on the top.
Aroma: Intense nutty, bready malt quality with definitely sweet vanilla and banana esters.
Flavor: Distinct vanilla sweetness fills the palate instantly and followed by some faint grainy, nutty malty notes. Peaked in a vivid clove and coriander spiciness.
Mouthfeel/Palate: Intense, prickling carbonation. Easy body with slightly watery feel. Rather spicy than fruity flavor profile.
Overall: Quite nice Hefe-wheat with a good sweet malty backbone and a nice crisp, spicy yeast quality.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Cloudy gold pour with a fluffy white head. Aromas of orange peel, grapefruit, barley, pine. Flavours of lemon rind, grapefruit, tangerine. Very fruity. Citrus laden mouthfeel. Light hoppy finish. Very refreshing.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2010
Milky golden pour, nice head retention. I’m not really sure what to say about this one. Everything you look for in a good hefe is there, but nothing really sets it apart. Its very nicely balanced, and is a great example of the style, but it doesn’t have that little something that sets a brew like weihenstephaner apart on its own level. Very enjoyable though.

erickok (4322) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAR 14, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2012 Golden yellow hazy body with pretty big soapy white head. Green bananas, corn flakes, candy peaches, light fresh yeast. Light sweet, easily drinkable. Very tasty base maltyness, light citric hint towards the end. Smooth carbonation. Perfectly brewed, rises just above the other German big guns. Drink cold. (50cl bottle, pretty cheap, re-rated)

Bottle 50 cl from Le Tonneau-Verre in Yverdon (CH).Blond pale and milky, fine crackling under a pur white and sticky foam. Nose of yeast, lemon, banana, a little smoked. The taste is sweet and creamy, fruity banana and peach, spicy and wheaty. Final drier, nervous, touch of refreshing acidity.
