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%).

rougeau13 (4310) - Katy, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2021
UPDATED: APR 11, 2021 Bottle. Hazy, effervescent golden yellow with a fluffy whitish head. Typical banana, clove, and wheat. Lightly spiced taste. Medium bodied and a little fizzy.

didierlewallon (345) - ponferrada, SPAIN - FEB 23, 2021
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2021 Cerveza de color amarillo dorado turbio con una cabeza de color blanquecina y esponjosa muy duradera reforzado por una carbonatación efervescente. Aroma moderado de trigo junto con algunas notas de clavo y toques de levadura de plátano. Sabor a trigo con un carácter a malta abundante pero no demasiado pesado, luego sabores ligeramente dulces de plátano y algo de cítricos. La presencia del lúpulo es muy suave y aporta un excelente equilibrio. El gustillo es ligeramente a pan y levemente dulce. Crujiente y muy suave, cuerpo medio, carbonatación media, final limpio. Muy sabrosa, una cerveza de trigo divinamente equilibrada y aromatizada que alcanza todas las notas adecuadas para un hefeweizen. Excelente.

GarrettB (2320) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 19, 2021
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2021 July 30th, 2016 - A Donkey Kong's country worth of banana mushroom clouds out of the glass, like a melted Laffy Taffy, but not too sweet. The smell is almost chewy, and causes salivation with a heavy glaze of butterscotch, sage and rosemary. The gourmet aroma leads to a semi-foamy body, and a clear taste of banana mixed with fresh cut cedar. A delicious and unique combination.

jpkeskinen (629) - FINLAND - DEC 26, 2020
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2020 Quite a typical wezein you get from Germany. There’s plenty of banana in the taste. The beer is pretty good but I was hoping for a fresher feel. Looks nice with a yellow and hazy appearance.

nayoro (41) - - DEC 25, 2020
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2020 Nose has some banana, mild spice etc. Bright orangey gold colour, opaque in glass. Taste is extremely easy, mild and refreshing. Moderately sweet. Would like to try this again on a summers day.

OldMrCrow (2816) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2020
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2020 Gold pour, coarser white head. Creamy, milder esters, mild but detectable bitter snap on the close. Green apple. Amazingly quaffable.

3.8
Moretum (775) - Vienna, AUSTRIA, AUSTRIA - DEC 5, 2020
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2020 Eingetrübte goldene Farbe mit weißer Schaumkrone. Hefiger, malziger, getreidiger, fruchtiger Geruch. Geschmacklich hefig, malzig, getreidig, fruchtig mit Bananen, würzig. Mittlere Süße mit mittlerer Bitterkeit, mittlerer Körper mit spürbarer Kohlensäure.

JorgeLee (2896) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2020
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2020 Bottle, Beers of Europe. Golden, slightly cloudy, big white foam. Pretty classic weizen here, some grainy malt, low bitterness, gentle fruity notes from the yeast. Easy drinking and quenching.

2.9
ManVsBeer (15796) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2020
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2020 Bottle from Buckfast Abbey Monastic Shop, Buckfastleigh. Golden well carbonated weizen with soft banana evident in both aroma and taste but unfortunately coming across as quite bland in the latter.
