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 .5L bottle to a hefe glass the color very cloudy yellow orange with good carbonation. The head is big and white and leaves some nice lace.

The smell is a classic Bavarian hefe, lots of banana and clove.

The taste is also quite good, really not much more to say the this is reall good, high quality hefe weitzen.

The mouthfeel is good lighter then medium body and good carbonation.

The drinkability of this brew is high great quality and easy drinking. It does not seem to be the best I have had, looking forward to a taste vom fass.
