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%).

ciocanelu (1620) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 12, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Really hazy, milky looking, peach color with white head. Aroma is full of banana esters and sweet honey malt. Taste has also banana shake flavor with some cloves and smooth yeast. Medium to full bodied with medium to high carbonation. A really well made, traditional hefeweizen.

Maakun (4226) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Hazy yellowy golden with nice white head. Cloves up front with a very light smoky touch. Like smoked cloves. Followed by unripe banana, light lemon rind, dough. Its light sweet with super fresh tartness, like drinking ice cold spring water. Very light herbal and yeasty bitter finish. Just medium bodied with surprisingly light feel, no cloying dough here it there is a decent wheat thickness. Nice.

At Maakuns. Shared from bottle. Sweet grain, banana milkshake, light hoppy bitter, thin smokey layer. Medium sweet, light bitter. Medium body, very supple fresh feel, mineral water, soft carbonation. Bittersweet overripe banana finish with faint lemon zest. Makes me want more. Good stuff.

Z kranu w Adechser am Dom. Bardzo dobry pszeniczniak - banany i goździki są, bardzo pijalne. Jedynie w aromacie lekka siarka.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle:   First glance is carbonation, fairly strong.   Thin to moderate frothy white head, little lacing.   Airy on the tongue, wheaty, soft clove.   Not as much bubblegum or banana as others.   Slightly more complex than American examples, but still not as spicy as other Germans.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   BURP!   Yeah, that carbonation needs to go somewhere.   Not as full as others either.   Decent example, but lighter for a German version.

dnicolaescu (2160) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - SEP 25, 2016
TAP at Beer Zone, Iași. Very murky bright golden. Juicy fruit and weigh clove, a bit of boiled vegetables. Sweetish bready and wheaty, but lacks the crispness and spiciness. Decent.
