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

A: Pours a hazy straw color with a white head.
S: Banana, wheat and clove in the nose. Pretty typical of a wheat beer.

T: Banana, clove, bready wheaty malts, wheat, some light fruit. Sounds typical, but it's delicious!

M: Light bodied and smoothish.

O: This is, thus far, my favorite german-style hefeweizen, and I am currently exactly 900 beers into my journey. Definitely recommended to all who like beer.

0,5 l bottle into a weizen glass. Hazy golden body with a white foamy head, ok retention and lacing. Fresh citrus and yeasty banana on the nose. The taste starts with semi-sweet malt and mildly tart wheat, ending with yeasty melon and a hint of banana. Medium-light body, medium carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. Overall a good hefeweizen, drinkable, refreshing and flavorful.

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.
