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%).

mkel07 (5424) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2011
500ml bottle. Classic german hefeweizen with a billowing cloud of thick white cottonwool foam that lookms like you could jump into it. Hazy apricot colour with banana lolly aroma with a faint background of clove. Brewed to tghe Reinheitgebot the flavour is crisp and clean and when you take your first sip you are left with a layer of foam on your top lip, better than a milk moustache. Flavour is sweet and finishes well in the mouth. This is ther perfect beer for a hot summers day and at 5.5 % ABV you could easily down a few of these.
