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%).

Pringao_Toribi (255) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 18, 2014
In short: lively carbonated cereal beer. Aroma is flowery, taste is banana/cereal, sadly with too much carbonation (metallic sensation in the end)

Vignale (2103) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2014
Flaska från SB. Gyllenfärgad, grumlig, högt vitt skum. Stiltypisk doft men mer jäst och källare och lite mindre skumbanan. Frisk, jästig och len i munnen. Mycket karaktär och samtidigt väldigt drickvänlig och uppfriskande. En hel del nejlika i kryddningen. En riktigt bra hefe.

eduardovl (864) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
500ml bottle served in a Weihenstephan Weizen. A: Pours a cloudy orange to beige color forming a huge white bubbled creamy white head. Excellent retention and many chunks of foam left in the glass. Well, as a matter of fact, it never disappear completely remaining for looong time S: Great in the nose. Very wheat, with notes of banana and loves as expected. It’s also sweet and bready. German yeast T: Follows the nose. Wheat backbone. Notes of banana esters, cloves, sweet malts and white bread. In overall, a slightly sweet and very smooth beer in the mouth. Simply perfect M: Light but creamy body. Low carbonation. Veeery smooth sensation. Bready aftertaste O: Absolutely drinkable beer. Great German beer. Recommended [ BA Review @ 9/24/2012 ]

Nilz (393) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 11, 2014
500 ml bottle from Hippo Beers, pours a markedly opalescent straw yellow with a great thick fluffy persistent head. Aroma, fragrant with bananas and grass. Taste, again bananas, flowers, yeast and a bit of spicy freshness. Great stuff, echoing summer freshness!

Moebbels (339) - FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Pours a hazy yellow body with a very quickly settling white head. Nose has nice aromas of sweet bananas, yeast and some spices. Taste is sweetish with a minimal sourness, the finish is mildly bitter. Carbonation is on the high side and mouthfeel is just above medium. This is a very nice and balanced beer with lovely banana notes. This bottle was close to its BBE date, so a fresher one might score better.

50cl bottle at home. Hazy golden with a full white soapy head. Medium body with low to moderate carbonation and a creamy mouth feel. Nice sweetness with some bitter tones. Banana, wheat, yeast and spices. A very well balanced tasty Hefeweizen.

tmongoose (1327) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Pint 9 bottle that poured a medium cloudy yellow with white head. Aroma is thick with wheat and banana esters, plenty of sweet malts. The flavors are more of the same. Wonderfully balanced from start to finish. The taste of the sweet malts and wheat and the banana esters. One of the best weissbiers I have had.

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.
