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%).

0,5 l bottle shared with McTapps. After lot of weizen disappointments this one saved the evening. Medium carbo mixed with low sourness and a fine yeast aroma. Good beer - even for those who don’t like weizen.

50cl bottle at Centimeter, Vienna. Pours hazy deep golden with a large white head. Aroma of banana, wheat and yeast. Sweet and fruity with a nice banana flavour. Delicious beer on a hot summer day. Very refreshing. Nice hefeweizen! (2009-08-30)

8/VIII/2012 - on tap @ Andechs Kloster (Andechs) - BB: n/a - (2012-857)

cloudy orange beer, big creamy white head, stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: some banana, sweet, bit herbal, vegetable soup, little sour touch. MF: lively carbon, medium to full body. Taste: quite a lot of banana first, citrus as well, grassy hops. Aftertaste: citric hops, slightly bitter touch, some ripe banana, malty, little sour. Nice Hefe but hard to describe in a way it does honour to the beer.

Bottle. This one is more on the crispy sharp side of the hefeweizen spectrum. Nice, hazy golden colour with a frothy head. Fresh, tart, citrusy aroma with lots of cloves, balanced by vanilla, some breadiness and fruity notes of banana and pear. Taste is quite tart for a hefeweizen, definitely citrusy. Lots of cloves as well and the bitterness is above average in terms of intensivity. Yeasty aftertaste. Very good, comes across quite aggressive but it works very well.

It’s an atypical German hefe. Light yeasty, wheaty taste with banana sweetness.

WeissGary (286) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 29, 2012
Quite a nice beer! Quite well carbonated, feels lighter than counterparts yet yeastier. Golden body, thick white head. Strong banana characteristics with mango like taste!

essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2012
(Bottle) - Very hazy orange-gold. Pours a thick white head that quickly diminishes to a thin, but persisting head. Med carb. A light wheat beer aroma; light yeasty fruit aroma - bit of banana, slight spice, not too impressive. Typical wheat beer flavours, bit fruity, bit spicy, though lacking on bitterness - the yeasty, aromatic fruit flavours dominate, with little hop flavour coming through. Initially it is slightly acidic, but then quickly turns softer, with a slightly buttery body. Bit of a watery palate and the flavours taste similarly diluted. Some spicy fruity flavours are left afterwards. Overall, a decent, but not outstanding wheat beer.
