COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Andechser Weissbier Hefetrb.

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 Josephs 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 theres 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. Youll 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%).

[ASPETTO] oro chiaro, velata [SCHIUMA] bianca, abbondante e pannosa, media persistenza [OLFATTO] cereali e lieviti come di rito, a cui si somma un floreale particolarmente fino e sullo sfondo qualche nota fruttata. Si sentono meno che in altri esemplari i classici toni di banana. [GUSTO] in bocca segue le classiche linee di una weizen, mostrando, come al naso, una particolare finezza e maggiori sfumature fruttate non cadendo in modo monotematico " bananoso ". Si somma una punta astringente. [TEXTURE] corpo medio, vellutata, ben carbonata e alcohol ben nascosto. [COMMENTO FINALE] buona birra di frumento, con tutti gli elementi classici al loro posto, equilibrati e ben dosati. Punto di merito che la distingue da altre weizen pi o meno blasonate provate fino ad ora la freschezza , che la rende piu bevibile e scorrevole. meno evidenti i toni di banana, un punto acido e fruttato che la ravviva . normalmente le weizen mi stancano in fretta. di questa si fa tranquillamente il bis.

Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Bottle picked up from an overseas shop. Served in a SAVOR wine glass alongside the doppelbock. Pours a cloudy yellow-straw color with a nice and fluffy white head. Good retention and lacing on the way down. The nose has heavy yeast character with nice banana and bubblegum notes, and a touch of clove in the background. A light breadiness exists in the flavor, serving as the base for the yeast. Nice notes of bubblegum and banana throughout with a touch of spice to the finish. Light-medium body with slight chewiness and a silky finish. Really well made. Im glad I finally got to try this longtime want.

Hands down the best Hefe I ever tasted. I am not a hefe fan, and as such, I think the lack of chemical and funky filmy wheat aftertaste and thickness on the tongue isnt there. Its clean, refreshing, perfect in everyway to me. I do like all of Andechs offering but this just gave me hope for hefes. I love this beer. Crafted well, applause for this one! overall if you like Hefe, classical, original brewing tactics and surity, this is for you . If you love good beer this is for you.!!!! Try it today.

McNeillR (2297) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 21, 2012
Predictable banana sweetness, with a slightly sterile depth. Decent Hefe gradient with minor head to the end. Exceptionally well rounded palate without overpowering the Weiss elements. Keeps a lid on 5.5% with odd sweetshop highlights in the linger. One of the finest in its field. (Bottle, The Pond, Edinburgh)
