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%).

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2006 Enjoyed a one liter maas of this beer at the monastery/ brewery. Outstanding Southern Bavarian hefeweizen, with fantastic aromas and flavors. This beer pours to a beautiful, opaque, bright golden color, with a tall, thick, creamy white head, and a vibrant carbonation. Lots of big aromas of clove, banana, and pear marry with good malted wheat aroma. The palate is firm with lots of good tart malted wheat character with a nice estery "bubble gum" note, This beer finishes very delicious and refreshing with more wheat flavor, and hints of clove that lingers. Without question one of the most impressive hefeweizens being brewed today from a very special place for beer lovers. Climb "Beer Mountain", and enjoy what Andechs has to offer.

Quite tasty but perhaps I had a bad bottle - it was super-foamy and made it difficult to drink (nuf said sorry)

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Cloudy sparkling golden yellow with massive head. Orange, yeast and vanilla dominate the aroma with the banana and clove more in the background. Good spritzy mouthfeel with some actual hop evident in the finish. Excellent hefeweizen.

On tap at the Monastery at Andechs in Germany. The Weissbier I compare all others by. A great beer along with the saurkraut and schweinshaxe I consumed. Served by the monks who brewed it. I’d like to know how it translates to bottle and whether it’s available in USA.

a sim rate: A very delicious weiss! My first instinct was that it smells and tastes like cake. And I love a bit of cake! White sponge cake. Yup. Otherwise, banana in the aroma and flavour. Very wheaty. Smooth and slightly tangy. Yum!

Sammy (8096) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2005
Bit aggressive carbonation, crisp and refreshing. Banana in yeast and pronounced lemony sharpness turned me off somewhat . Faint hint of metallic. Considered one of the best labels not available in North America.With appreciation to Madsberg in Denmark in a trade.
