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%).

Drake (9251) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2008
Bottle. Thanks bierkoning. Pours a very hazy orange with a medium frothy head. Doesn’t last and lacing isn’t great. Strong banana aroma with a sourness that came across as a bit olivey. (Is that a word?). Very, very thin. Taste of bread, marshmallow and banana. Very weak beer.

Embrouille (2830) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 26, 2007
Bottled 50cl. It pours a hazy orange beer with a beautiful, nicely lasting head. The nose is yeasty, woody with quite a lot of banana. A slight hint of rosemary. Faintly grainy with buttery undertones. A strange chicken food-like touch to the aroma too. Some sourness showing up. The taste is slightly sour, nicely woody, grainy with lots of bananas and hints of cloves. Medium bodied with a nice spicy, smooth mouthfeel. Some wood and nuts accompanied by apples showing up just before the finish which is yeasty, sour with hints of apples.

bluevegie (3063) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2007
Hazy yellow/straw coloured body with a huge white head. Aroma was of banana followed by some cloves. I was looking for a refreshing beer on a bloody hot Xmas day and this beer did the job. Some yeast characters come through in the taste, after the banana, straightforward and what you want from a hefeweizen.
