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%).

ghawener (1453) - San Salvador, - SEP 11, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2012 Draft: #25 on my RateBeer travel list to Germany. This could be the dictionary description of a German Hefeweizen, yellow-orange and cloudy, sweet banana and vanilla malt. Aroma a bit weak. Solid. Food Pairing: Fresh green salad and white fish.

Idiosynkrasie (3574) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2014
500ml bottle [Hard to reach the (actually) 6:0 demand of the German Football team with six Weizen(s) at this historic evening, seven just in this moment]. Hazy golden colour with huge, frothy, fairly lasting, white head. Wheaty and yeasty aroma, fruity hints of apple and clove. Taste is wheaty, yeasty, fruity notes of pear, apple, a touch of banana, clove; creamy texture close to a Weizenbock. Very nice.

Bottle. Milky yellow pour with a white head. Lemon zest and yeast aromas. Lemon zest dominates with biscuit back beats. Good body and mouthfeel. Citrus undercurrents.

Bottle. Hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma is wheat, citrus and floral notes. Taste follows suit but adds a nice banana note. Good crisp mouthfeel. Really nice.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2014 Bottle 500ml at Restaurant Rattstube, Rudenheim am Rhein, Hesse. Hazy gold with white head. This proved to have quite a fresh taste, lemony, hints of spice and fruitiness, not to much of the weissbier character, which is a good thing for me. Likeable.

Scopey (6136) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2014
Keg at Kings Arms. It pours hazy golden with a medium white head. The nose is fresh, spicy, clove, banana bread, doughy and hay. The taste is smooth, banana, orange peel, clove rock, toast, hay and dough with a dry, citric finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Well-rounded classic weissbier action.
