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%).

jgb9348 (4981) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Perfect hazy golden coloured body with a dense white head and tons of bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of bananas, wheat, yeast, cloves and a bunch of coriander seed. Medium-bodied; Strong flavours of banana, yeast, cloves and curacao with a bit of lemons and citrus coming as well. Aftertaste shows a lot of wheat and yeast - and a bit of the spices. Overall, a very nice unfiltered wheat - definitely one of the best I’ve had. Too bad I can’t get this easily, otherwise I’d be drinking a lot of it! I sampled this 500 mL bottle purchased from Tengelmann Grocery in Munchen, Germany on 15-November-2008, sampled on 03-January-2009.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2009 Excellent German weizen. Another great effort by the monks at Andechs. Nice and cloudy, dark golden color. Excellent balance of taste and fruity aftertaste.

Alphadelic (1862) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Like a big glass of hazy golden syrup with a big white foaming head. Bread and lemons pervade. Awfully smooth with quite a homely feel from the sugared, baguettey aftertaste. There are a lot of bubbles but they don’t take away from the lovely mouthfeel. Crisp and clean with a strawberry like sweetness. Quite a mellow experience, pretty gassy though. That thick head is with you all the way down.

On tap @ in de Wildeman. Cloudy yellow/orange, dense white head. Aroma of wheat and banana. Flavour is thick, sweet, wheat, some citrus and banana. Prickly carbonation-bitter finish.

jerohen (2055) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2008
Bottled. Cloudy orange coloured, lasting head. Fruity nose, more citrus than banana, some spices. Sweet fruity flavour. For a Hefeweizen thin one leans a bit towards a Witbier. Nice, but not outstanding.

DSG (7623) - Tel Aviv, - AUG 8, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2014 Re-rate 12/10/13: Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Yoav. Cloudy yellowish orange. Wheaty aroma of lots of banana, a bit overripe, and some clove. Sweetish and slightly tart flavor, with lots of fruity esters, a bit of bubblegum and a light spicy touch in the finish. Rounded mouthfeel. A very nice Weissbier. 7/3/7/4/15=3.6

(6/19/08) Bottle at Aufsturz in Berlin. Cloudy yellow-orange color with a slowly-diminishing big white head. Aroma of wheat, some banana and some spiciness. Sweet fruity flavor with banana notes. Medium-bodied. A very nice Weizen on the sweeter side. 7/3/7/4/15=3.6

Draft at Andechser am Dom. Murky gold with a big white head. Big banana and bubblegummy nose, yeasty and citrusy. Orange flavors really come to the fore in the flavor, balancing perfectly with the other components. Excellent!
