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%).

Milky golden pour, nice head retention. I’m not really sure what to say about this one. Everything you look for in a good hefe is there, but nothing really sets it apart. Its very nicely balanced, and is a great example of the style, but it doesn’t have that little something that sets a brew like weihenstephaner apart on its own level. Very enjoyable though.

Bottle. Cloudy honey yellow colour, big white stable head. Lots of banana on aroma. besides that spicy yeast and phenols which are not that welcome as I . Light to medium body. Medium sweet banana taste. Good. Yeasty spiciness going along. Low bitterness. First class Hefe. Not my favourite Hefe.

Orange-braun, blickdicht trüb mit weißem Schaum. Geruch fruchtig, malzig. Geschmack malzig leicht süß mit ausgewogenen Nelken und Bananenaromen. Im Anhang etwas bitter. Gutes Weißbier.

Well, thesenguys know what they’re doing, for sure. Some bananas and wheat, but very creamy and smooth. Top notch beer.

Mishnok (285) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2017
Very appealing looking beer with an amber body topped by a foamy white head. Excellent refreshing beer ideal for summer. Yeasty banana taste, a little of cloves and spice. I'd be happy to drink a few of these ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at Beerdock Leek. Pours a hazy orange colour with a thick white head. Aroma of banana, clove, cereal malts, slight orange, a little lemon, a hint of pepper and subtle wheat. Taste of banana, clove, cereal malts, bready malts, slight orange, a little pepper, a hint of wheat and subtle vanilla. Medium bodied and high carbonation. A dry, peppery, banana bitterness in the finish. A very good weissbier, full of flavour. Really good body and super refreshing.

Hazy gold pour with a sizable white cap. Sweet and fruity, mostly banana. I’d like more clove but this is still very nice.

javiercrasher (536) - Granada, SPAIN - MAY 23, 2017
Platano y clavo en nariz. Algo de levadura en boca. Ligeramente ácida con buen cuerpo y bien carbonatada. BB 11/10/17

GreenCat (105) - SLOVENIA - MAY 13, 2017
0,5 l bottle. Pours hazy light golden yellow with big thick white head. Aroma of banana, vanilla, some light clove, malt and bread. More on banana side this one. Taste is light sweet, very light bitter and a hint of sourness. Body is on the light side, texture is slick, carbonation average to lively. Body wise this hefe one is on the light side, banana dominates aroma, delicious and refreshing.
