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

Pours a cloudy light amber with thick, dense white head, lots of lace down the glass, a half inch of foam sticks around until the end. Smell: very ripe banana, soft slightly grainy sweetness, clove, honeydew. Taste: real banana pudding into clove with some candied lemon-ish acidity, sticky banana mashed on graham cracker finish. Delicious. Extremely fluffy feel, medium body, sweet. If I'm going to go hefeweizen, I think this will be the one.

500mL into a weizen glass. Pours a crystal clear, glowing golden color w/ a 1-finger bright white head, great carbonation. Lovely.

Aroma is ripe banana, clove, earth, apple and pear. Floral and delicate.

Taste is clean and bright, mellow and soft; floral Old World hops, more banana and clove, and clean mineral water.

Mouthfeel is just right; light but with some weight and presence. Nice clean assertive finish.

Overall a very nice hefeweizen, about as good as it gets.
