Notes/Commercial Description:
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

Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a half finger white head that dissipates to patches and ring around the glass, leaving light lacing. Classic hefeweizen aroma of wheat, clove light banana, slightly bready. Flavor is cracked wheat, clove, light breadiness, a touch of lemon citrus and a touch of toffee, finishing with dry wheat and light clove bitterness. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A perfectly balanced and flavored wheat beer that hits all the right notes for a hefeweizen. One of the best hefe I've had. Excellent.

Andechser Weissbier Hell
16.9 oz. brown bottle, date code L3013
$4.99 @ Wegmans, King of Prussia, PA

Appearance: Usual cloudy gold body with a bit of an orange cast to it. Very long-lasting head bolstered by an effervescent carbonation.

Smell: Clove and gently plastic-like phenols over sweet wheat malt.

Taste: Lots of lemon tang at first, followed by clove, banana, and spicy phenolics. Richly flavored. As you progress the lemon fades as the malt builds on your palate and a note of vanilla comes through. Some chalky yeast appears in the finish; which is spicier than many, and drier than some others.

Mouthfeel: Light-medium leaning more towards medium in body; bristling effervescent carbonation.

Overall: Unique, but also a classic example of the style. Absolutely worth trying!
