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

aggressive carbonation, crisp and refreshing. Banana in yeast and pronounced lemony sharpness turned me off somewhat . Faint hint of metallic. Considered one of the best labels not available in North America.With appreciation to Madsberg in Denmark in a trade.

Bottle picked up from an overseas shop; thanks to yourefragile for the assist. 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. I'm glad I finally got to try this longtime want.

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and appears to have a moderate amount of visible carbonation, although it is difficult to see rising bubbles though the haze. It poured into a weizen glass with a perfect two finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface and some large patches of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of wheat are present in the nose along with some notes of clove and hints of banana yeast.
T: The overall taste mostly follows the smell and is dominated by flavors of wheat and complimented by flavors of cloves and bananas.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: While some hefeweizens are dominated by aromas and flavors of bananas or cloves, what makes this beer interesting is that the wheat shines out. It's quite easy to drink and has some refreshing properties.

fresh bottle delivered straight from Munich...

Hazed straw yellow color, very cloudy, enormous, pillowy white, long-lasting head...looks perfect!

Super fresh aroma! Big banana and orange, with lingering lemon, big and beautiful, airy and invigorating...

Taste: snappy, sparkling, citric, smooth, mellow...lush, lovely malt...lemon, lime and orange lie largest in the flavor...brisk, livley carbonation...refreshing and easy-drinking...definitely downable and downright delicious.

A grittier mouthfeel than many American-made hefe weizens, and a fuller texture...this is the stuff! Not sure if it outshines Weheinstephaner of Schneider Wess...I think it's heavier than them both, more flavorful, without some of the ethereal qualities the finer weizens can boast.

Quite a flavorful number here... big lemon, full malt, not so much spice as you'd taste in others...very full of character and utter panache...there's nothing not to like...yum...so delicious.

Big thanks to Matt for bringing some Andechs love back from Germany. Served this in a pint glass due to limited selection at the parent's house. Label denotes a best before date of February 27th, 2010. I also dug the random factoids about Carl Orff.

A - Three-plus fingers of soapy white foam that dissipates quickly until about a finger and a half are left behind - then it dissipates quite slowly and eventually settles to an attractive thick cap. Not a ton of lace, with just a few spots dotting the glass. Hazed, unfiltered color, that isn't too pale and rests more on the orange side of things than yellow. Gets a little milky near the bottom of the bottle.

S - Intense - it's initially a strong banana and bubblegum sweetness, but as it warms more of the yeast and clove character emerges. Light malted wheat, but not overly sharp - more like fresh sweet bread (as in the Portugese grain product and NOT cow's pancreas). Excellent balance of sweet, starchy, and tangy, with the slightest hint of sour Berliner Weiss flavor starting to creep in.

T - The taste is more wheat-oriented, with a very intense bread character. The finish is light banana, and the aftertaste is fairly clean although it gets a touch yeasty by the end of the 1/2 liter. Thankfully the cloves are in the periphery. Less complex than the aroma, but still quite pleasant.

M - This is overcarbonated (which thankfully is easier to solve than undercarbonation). It makes the beer a bit too harsh and gritty for my liking. The body is a little bigger than most hefeweizen's which helps offset the bubbliness. Dry finish with minimal residual feel.

D - If this were less carbonated it would be one of the best session wheats out there - and would be very similar to the Schneider Weizenhell. It's one of the better German wheats and is worth trying if you're over there, but probably not worth deliberately seeking out with some many other options available.

Happy to see this in the states finally.

Served in a Weizen glass, it has plenty of billowing foam, settling to a sturdy head that lasts for the duration of the glass. Flecks of lace appear all around the sides of the glass.

Banana is big at first but tapers off quickly into clovey yeast esters and wheat cereal, with a pleasant sweet floral note as well.

Creamy wheaty feel, light clove spice and banana esters. Carbonation is a little biting at first but tapers off eventually. Clover honey aftertaste. Medium bodied and substantial, though light in feel and easy drinking. Very solid overall with no flaws.

Thanks Thorpe, long time want right here and I still want more.

Beer is soft and yellow, hazy, big white head, lacing, nice carbonation.

Aroma is sweet, banana, mildly spicy, near perfect aroma.

Beer is soft, sweet, smooth, wet finish. No aftertaste, a great yeast palate, no bitterness, smooth and wonderful. I really loved this beer. I really want some more.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is strong bananas and cloves. The flavor is bananas, yeast and cloves. Medium, creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This beer is exactly what I am looking for in a hefeweizen. Awesome.

This beer came last in a blind tasting of 4 German brewed Hefewiezrn biers held at my place last week (Sep 2008). It was up against biers from Krombacher (the best), Erdinger and Schofferhofer.

Typical murky, clouldy yellow body you come to expect of a Hefewiezen, good light head that hangs around for most of the drink.

There was a lot of vanilla and banana in the aroma, but not much spice or citrus to be found.

The taste was again average, not as spritzy, tangy or crisp as the other biers in the tasting, almost bland in some aspects.

I know this beer seems to get high scores from most reviewers, but it did very little to get many votes when compared to the others mentioned. A big dissapointment all round for me.

Split a bottle with some friends, as this is a beer that should be shared out of charity.

Pours a hazy yellow-gold with a fluffy white head that leaves lacing. The aroma and flavor are rich with yeast character - tons of orange, herbal spice, clove, and vanilla. All these tasty flavors carry over only the palate with a mellow wheat malt and bready grains. The body has a little weight to it, but for the most part this is a tasty hefe you could happily drink all day and night long.

From 02/11/12 notes. Bottle shared by Thorep429; thanks Mike! This beer wasn't on my radar and is probably one of the best hefeweizens I've had. Poured into a tulip.

a - Pours a hazy straw yellow color with one finger of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of bananas, spices, cloves, Belgian yeast, light citrus, light floral, and light pepper. Fresh bananas dominate here and are awesome. One of the best smelling hedeweizens I've ever smelled.

t - Tastes of bananas, spice, pepper, cloves, Belgian yeast, and light floral notes. more pepper then the nose. Very nice but not quite as good as the nose.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Super smooth and creamy, and insanely easy to drink. Awesome body.

o - Overall I thought this was an outstanding hefeweizen; it's up there with the Live Oak hefe, Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier, and Moon Man as one of the best I've ever had. The nose is awesome, and just a ton of fresh bananas, and it is insanel easy to drink. The taste was good but not quite as great as the nose, as it focused more on pepper. An awesome beer I can't wait to have again.

A- This brew pours a pale golden color with a slight hazy 1st pour and a much denser 2nd pour. There is a sea of boiling microbubbles that support a thick creamy off-white head that laces with each sip.
S- The rich yeasty aroma with a full banana is followed by a hop note and then a clove note comes through and grows as the beer opens up.
T- A mellow white bread dough and yeasty flavor has a soft clove spice quality and a soft dry pils malt note in the background. The finish is a slight tartness with a slight carbonic acid note in that cleans up the finish. A soft green hop note grows into a nice hop snap as it warms.
M- The medium-light mouthfeel has an effervescent carbonation in the finish.
D- This beer has a nice green flavor that is a bit dry and a bit softer than the aroma and less complex, but very drinkable none the less.

Draft at Brauhaus Schmitz in Philadelphia, PA.

Pours a very cloudy and very dark golden orange color with dark golden banana-yellow colored edges and a massive three finger, pillowy white head that very slowly settles into a lasting ring. Great retention, coating the glass with large chunks of soapy lacing on the way down.

Lots of spice in the nose with a strong peppery clove presence along with prominent malted wheat and a heavy bread/yeast character.  Just a touch of banana with a strong citrus/lemon zest presence.  As it warms, I'm also picking up a bit of melon, grapefruit and blood orange.  The nose is dominated by clove and peppery spice but the citrus element really opens up after a while.  

Full body with a zesty spice presence up font that lingers over the bready yeast, banana and sweet citrus notes into a slight tart, dry finish.  Heavy peppery clove flavor up front but it is nicely countered by wheat, sourdough bread, banana and a very prominent citrus flavor.  Lots of zesty lemon pith as well as some grapefruit and juicy blood orange.  Very refreshing and although the mouthfeel is kind of heavy, it's pretty easy to drink.

16.9oz bottle purchased as a single from Beverage Warehouse, Winooski, VT.

Poured into an imperial pint, formed a 1 1/2" off-white head over the cloudy golden amber brew. Head sno-cones above the rim, slowly receding, with sticky lacing. Aroma is banana and cloves. So far, pretty much the best you could hope for.

Taste is wheat sweetness to start, cloves and banana in the middle, with a light bitterness through the close. Mouthfeel is silky smooth, and drinkability is superb. Incredible.

On-tap at Andechser am Dom, on to the beer:

A shade darker than yellow in the glass, cloudy, and topped with a head which retains all the way down. The classic hefeweizen nose is clear; spicy clove, banana, nutmeg, a touch of cinnamon, all working together to make a lovely smell. It continues into the taste, which is phenlicand banana first, then comes the spice, and a touch of vanilla. It's a flaovrdul weiss with much appeal. It's nearly medium bodied yet stays refreshing. Of the four Andechs that I tasted, this, not the Doppelbock, was my favorite.

BB 16/03/06, consumed two months after its suggested BB date--I hope it's alright. Served lightly-chilled in a 500ml weizen glass.

A: slightly hazy, dark orange-yellowish hue, coming with a thick, cotton-ish white beer head with superb retention; gently as well as lively carbonation.
S: a fresh banana aroma abounds, neither too harsh, "stinky", nor floating, plus peach+apricot+ripe Cantaloupe melon; added with a lightly ashy note from the foam, yeast-drink's sour-sweet yeastiness, and candyish malts+refreshing wheat-malts all together. Showing no clear structure, but the combination is really nice and harmonious. Surprisingly there's not much hint of cloves in the aroma. But for a hefe-weizen, the nose is still one of the most complex and enjoyable I've ever encountered...
T: sour-sweet, slightly tangy, fruity flavour abounds upfront, almost like green mango+green banana--balanced and delicious; a stream of cottony-textured, wheat-ish flavour slowly takes over the theme, backed by a profound flavour of yeast drink (like Yakult) that is also closely in check. Dryish and sour-sweet aftertone lingers in the back, leaving some tangy mouthfeel at the deep end of the tongue, like after eating some "green" fruits...
M&D: superb carbonation and creamy soft mouthfeel--I suspect the "overly-maturation" of this beer has done some good to the overall texture? A medium-full bodied hefe-weizen, deserving slow sipping. The strength is in its balance, if I may, and it's certainly one of my favourite botted hefe-weizen for sure. Next time I'll find a bottle within its sell-by date to see if it's any different.

On tap during PIB.

The beer pours a slightly hazy, golden tan color with good head retention and considerable lacing. On the nose this is textbook hefe, with clove, light banana, nutmeg and considerable underlying spice. As good as it smells, the beer is considerably better on the palate, with the beer showcasing considerable bread dough, clove, banana, and considerable spice, all on a very dry, sharp "clovey" finish. (I hated this flavor combination when I lived in Germany years ago, but now I just love it). Mouthfeel is medium bodied at most, but it's truly amazing how much flavor this beer packs with such a low abv.

Excellent. One of those hefe's that immediately puts me in mind of my days living in Germany, even though that was almost 40 years ago now.

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike!

The appearance is typical of the style. Straw yellow in color with a dense, white head. Fantastic aroma with banana, clove, spices, wheat. Refreshing flavor. Light and soft on the palate. Poundable. Superb balance. I would love to try this side by side with Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier, as these are without question the two best examples of a German hefeweizen I have ever had. Highly recommended.

Poured from the bottle into a curved wheat ale glass.

Does not gush or foam very hard on opening, but pours with some aggression makes a super bleach white head that is even pin head bubbled, thick and soapy with thick ring lacing. Body color is a gorgeous and cloudy hue of colors from dully lemon yellow on the bottom to apricot orange through the top. Has a mid haze in the middle with clarity on the edges, and very fine carbonation.

Nose is classic. Spritzy like lemon and drive clove like spices. Some hinting banana senses but more of a balance of spicy and citrus.

Palate comes with classic flavors but a large champagne wet crispness. Not much chewy wheat presence, but great lemon and sharp hop quick dissipating finish. Mild bitterness matching with clove and lemon, and faint toasted white bread just barely breaking out. Light to wet bodied and lots of mimosa like qualities.

It's a little lighter and crisper than most Hefeweizens, but it's very unique and real great tasting. Probably not my favorite in the style but a great one in its own right.

On tap at the pub in Munich, served in the impressive Andechs weizen glass.

Appearance: Straw-colored and nearly opaque, this one arrived with a towering 2 1/2 finger head that retained ridiculously well.

Smell: Yeasty as hell with lots of signature banana and clove along with a slight mineral quality.

Taste & mouthfeel: Banana and a touch of bubblegum open this one up. Surprisingly dry, though still malt-forward and very complex. Medium in body, bordering on full. The finish ends on a dry note with barely a trace of bitterness, though this one's dry nearly from start to finish. Drinkability is through the roof; this beer is complex in a subtle way that never fatigues the palate. I could've drank liters of this.

A lot of a good compact and persistent foam. Orange, lightly cloudy appearance. Right for a hefe weizen.
Weizen smell, too. Good, banana, cloves, orange peel, some spiciness (pepper). Very well balanced.
Wel balanced in the taste too. Maybe, just a bit too thin. Anyway, great drinkability and plesantness. Banana and cloves. Very good weizen.
Aftertaste with a little banana, and pleasantly spiced. Orange peel, pepper.

Bottle from Mainbrew. $2.75. That I can have a case of this for less that what folks (me included) spend on 1 bottle is just nuts.

A nice, cloudy, yellow orange with a dense, white head with excellent retention and moderate lacing. The nose is pure hefeweizen. A moderate blend of banana, clove, grain and a little bit of pear cider are present. The clove note is fresh, sharp and spicy, and banana plays a secondary role here. A touch of grainy, doughy, honey-like sweetness is present. Most excellent.

The palate opens juicy, refreshing, with a blend of banana, a little bit of peach and pear before the clove spiciness comes forward. Fragrant and flavorful without the bitterness that sometimes appears, there's a really nice balance between a grainy, wheaty tartness, the fruit and the spice notes. Medium in body from the wheat, this beer is rather highly carbonated, lending an additional acidity to the palate. Drying on the finish with a delicate blend of clove and banana, this is pretty special stuff.

This beer pours like a classic hefeweizen. A hazy straw colour with a large, fluffy white head. Great head retention and plenty of lovely lace. This is one damn fine looking beer and spot on for style.

Aromas are all classic hefeweizen. Banana, wheat and a hint of bubblegum.

Flavours aren't as strong as the aroma but there are more complexities. Big banana is accompanied by hints of clove and apple. Wheat offers its own delicious character and I get just the slightest tart edge to cut this beer and add some more refreshing qualities.

This is a light, refreshing quaffer. Vibrant carbonation livens up this beer and this really is a perfect summer beer.

Had on tap at the Klosterbrauerei Andechs, served in a 0.5L glass in the bier garten. The beer was hazy golden orange with a thick and creamy foam on top. Actually every beer I tried at the brewery can be described as having a creamy texture to the head. The smell had some banana and clove of course, but in addition I found some fruity esters and fresh bread in the aroma. The taste was peppery and fruity, banana/clove also, and an after-taste I'll describe as buttery. The mouthfeel was thick and filling, creamy texture from the effervescence too. Extremely easy to drink, although it's too filling to rate "5" for drinkability. Excellent beer, and highly recommended.
