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%).

Finwe (427) - 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 (2945) - 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.

Cloudy, yellow beer with a big and white head. Wheat, sourness, some bananas and spicyness in the aroma. Taste is also wheatish, some lemon and quite lot of sourness. Fresh, lot of carbonation, but it is smooth, nice to drink. Nice, fresh and sour hefe; simple, but it works greatly.

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours a medium golden body with a white huge rocky head. Aromatically spicy, flowers, pepper tones, cobwebs, light banana light bubble gum but i would not call it fruity. Very dry body nice sharp spices, cloves, very yeasty a hint of birch light bubble gum. This beer is absolutely alive and has a little bit of funkiness to the yeast character. This is THE BEST hefeweizen i’ve had to date. Outfuckingstanding.

KyotoLefty (8935) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 24, 2011
Bottle from Asao. Big fragrant aroma of banana, clove, some citrus. Blalanced and nice. Deep cloudy gold-yellow with orange and a high, frothy head. Thick, rich wheat malt flavors, banana cream cake witha very nice tart edge that balances well. Rich and thick body. Spicy with some citrus. Excellent stuff.  One of the best.
