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%).

En klassisk "mitt ivägen" weissbier. Sticker inte ut på något sätt men duger gott att dricka, speciellt en varm sommardag.

AshtonMcCobb (5170) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 19, 2011
50cl bottle. Pours golden-orange with steady bubbles and a generous head. The nose has ripe banana and vanilla custard. The taste has more ripe banana and a a lemon/pineapple tangy note that follows. The palate is medium in structure, thick but effervescent in texture with a zingy finish. Overall, this is more tangy than creamy, which I think shows the influence of the yeast, so in some respect, it seems like a step towards a Belgian Blonde.

DutchDrebus (5562) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2011
C: typicical hefeweizen colour. Hazy yellowish. The beer itself is just like most other hefe weizen beers. It’s a good one though, but not my kind of beer.

Koelschtrinker (16811) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 6, 2011
Angenehmer Hefegeruch ohne wirkliche Fruchtigkeit. Dies spiegelt sich auch im Geschmack des Bieres wieder, es ist ein spritziges Weizen, dass so gut wie keinen Wert auf Fruchtigkeit, dafür aber auf Hefigkeit legt. So treten Antrunk und Mittelteil sehr hefig und leicht herb auf, angenehm, wenn es nicht so süß erscheint. Der Nachgeschmack ist dann deutlich herber mit bitteren Elementen. Gutes, aber nicht herausragendes Bier. Test vom 10.2.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,11,11,11,10,11 - 10,95
