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%).

Very well done wheat beer. Only a bit stronger and it would be perfect for me. But there's nothing to complain about, it's quintessential for the style D&S Dresden

Belle mousse et effervescence, tenace. Robe blond orangé Nez fleuri, et typique des weizen. En bouche, une touche de banane, d'acidité de froment, vraiment très représentatif du style. Pointe d'acidité en fond de bouche, et très légère amertume en fin. Assez subtile, mais belle longueur.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2018 Ottima Weiss. Provata in bottiglia. Molto corposa per il tipo di birra. Profumo e aroma persistenti.

500ml bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with a large, foamy, long lasting, off-white head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of wheat malt, banana, bubble gum, yeast and clove. Sweet fruity flavour of wheat malt, banana, bubble gum, orange, lemon, melon, honey, yeast and clove in a smooth, dry finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Refreshing and easy drinking, an excellent Hef.

Nice hazy yellow. Smell is a really nice yeast and spice. Lots of banana, clove, and wheat. Not too sweet. Not much bitterness, either. Ood level of carbonation, too. Perfectly classic for the style.
