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%).

graziano85 (425) - Budapest, - FEB 4, 2013
UPDATED: APR 23, 2013 Nice white head and hazy orange/yellow colour. Smells little spicey and maybe orange. Taste is sweet/sout, well balanced, with evident wheat taste. Very dry finish. It’s different than most of weizen, because I did’t taste the banana note, not really, but maybe also for this is a very interesting and particular weizen. The finish is very dry. Carbonation is perfect. Very good beer.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle:   First glance is carbonation, fairly strong.   Thin to moderate frothy white head, little lacing.   Airy on the tongue, wheaty, soft clove.   Not as much bubblegum or banana as others.   Slightly more complex than American examples, but still not as spicy as other Germans.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   BURP!   Yeah, that carbonation needs to go somewhere.   Not as full as others either.   Decent example, but lighter for a German version.

dnicolaescu (2048) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - SEP 25, 2016
TAP at Beer Zone, Iași. Very murky bright golden. Juicy fruit and weigh clove, a bit of boiled vegetables. Sweetish bready and wheaty, but lacks the crispness and spiciness. Decent.

Full bottle. This is an good hefeweizen. Dark orange and entirely opaque appearance. Full aroma and flavor, banana, clove, some bubblegum. Flavor is not quite as rich and full as some others, but this is still better than most others. Medium sweet.
