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%).

En botella cortesia de beerbox. Color y espuma caracteristico de una weiss. Aromas bien definidos ,intensos y mas complejos sin olvidar la banana y especias. Sabor equilibrado,poco dulce y mas amargo de lo que seria una weiss.recomendable!

Darker golden-colored body, medium to large white head, spotty lacing. Light sweet wheat, soft banana esters, light clove. Flavors are a tad mellow. Medium bodied, semi-sweet, clean finish.

Smalle (120) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 27, 2014
On draught at Kloster Andechs. Very good Weizen aroma: yeasty and banana. The taste is not bad, but doesn’t live up to the nose. Dry, wheat and some citrus.

Bottle. Light brown cloudy color and thick head. Aroma has yeast, sweet malt and banana. Taste is refreshing and balanced with soft body and ends to a long lasting nice malty aftertaste. Flavors of citrus, yeast, wheat, banana and some spices. Excellent hefeweizen.

Uklar gyllengul farge med et hvit skum som henger i glassveggen. Arpma av hvete, gjćr, banan og frukt. Smaken fřlger aroma, men alt forsterker seg, bra ettersmak som varte en stund..

Bottle 50cl. Cloudy yellow golden color, nice two finger frothy white head, good retention and lacing; aroma of yeast, banana, grass, citrus, hint of ginger; taste is moderate sweet, slightly bitter and a touch of sourness, yeasty; medium body, watery texture, average carbonation; finish fresh, smooth and light sweetbitter, again some light sour notes, and yeastiness remains also. Very nice weissbier.

Hazy orange yellow looks with thick white head, as usual. Wheat, banana and lots of bubblegum in aroma. Fresh, sparkling taste with wheat, citrus and hints of ginger. Medium palate. Refreshing weiss with character.

tectactoe (1935) - Michigan, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Super hazy, muddled & radiant yellow body with a soapy, somewhat chunky white head that slowly settles to a collar. Lovely hefeweizen yeast aroma; rich bubblegum with light sweetness, banana Laffy Taffy, fruity & faintly perfumey esters, a bit of warming clove, fresh baked bread, wheat, & a slight kiss of mint leaf. The taste is just as advertised by the aroma, only in different proportions. Big clove out of the gate; spicy but not overbearing. Gummy, golden baked bread, chunky hefe yeast, huge blanket of wheat, subtle banana & even a touch of apple. Nice, relatively hefty body with a good yeast thickness to it. A very enjoyable hefeweizen.
