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%).

Bottle - a bit more subdued than I general like my hefes, but very well put together - the nose, in particular, is a lesson in subtle complexity - soft honey, melon, subtle spicy phenolics, mild esters - nothing dominates, but everything works together quite well - soft, moderately frothy texture - flavor is a little thin compared to the aroma and the tail end is a little watery - moderately acidic/tangy and mildly sweet - very mild esters, but not very much of the subtle phenolics from the nose - finish does bring some white pepper, but the aroma had me hoping for more - overall, though, still a solid Hefe.

500ml Bottle - Hazy golden in colour. Cloves, banana and some slightly earthy notes in the aroma. Banana, peach, cloves and lemon can be detected in the taste.

TheBeerGod (5757) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy gold with a medium white head. Haven’t pour the yeast in yet. Aroma is banana, yeast, wheat, light bubblegum. Sweet overall but mouthwatering due to the heat - upper 80s and high 90+ percent humidity. Taste is also sweet malt, wheat, yeast, banana, bubblegum and soft spice. Body is light-medium with a moderate, dense, prickly carbonation. Finishes with more wheat, yeast, banana, bubblegum notes and soft spice. Delicious!

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2015
16oz pint. Pours a glowing, hazy yellow color. Head starts out strong, eventually leaves a nice layer on the top of the beer. Flavors are expected of the usual Hefeweizen- lemon zest, sweet wheat and subtle spices.

cervmagpt (514) - PORTUGAL - JUN 30, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 10A). Bottle 50 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: a blend of moderate clove and bubblegum with faint notes of banana. very faint wheat background. no hop aroma. APPEARANCE: gold color and hazy. large white head with moderate retention. TASTE: moderate to low notes of clove and some bubblegum. supportive wheat background flavour. low bitterness with a semi-sweet finish. PALATE: medium-light body with a slight texture. moderate carbonation. OVERALL: a good weissbier example.

A decent weissbier. Has all the ingredients it should have. Vanila, banana and fruits and a smooth palate. Refreshing. Good, but I have had better ones with more complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jamaty (1614) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Espuma abundante (3-4 dedos) muy blanca y esponjosa. Aroma banana y cítricos. Muy compleja en boca. Carbonatada, cítricos banana, clavo, canela, y un picante final en la garganta. Una hefeweizen muy notable.

A good beer to remove the thirst for summer or after return of a workout. Not my style beers, I find weak and with little progress
