4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
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!

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.
