A Note on This Beer
A truly great Hefeweizen is hard to find. Typically imbalanced and full of muddled flavors, American-made Wheat beers often fall short. But the brewmaster monks of Kloster Andechs have the complex secret to brewing the best of Bavaria’s most iconic style: Traditional yeast.
With a 93 on BeerAdvocate and 96 on Ratebeer, Andechser’s Weissebier Hell is one of the most universally beloved Hefs on the planet. One sip embodies the pinnacle of Hefeweizen perfection.
Andechser fulfils the delicious obligation of traditional Hefs. Weissbier is unfiltered, made with 50% wheat malts, gentle hop character, and finish with a delicate acidity courtesy of top-fermented Bavarian yeast. The yeast provides the signature, citrus bright acidity and effervescent carbonation. It also amplifies the nose with the subtle complexity of banana and clove aromas, on top of the malted wheat bill’s honey sweetness and soft body.
Kloster Andechs’ dedication to preserving Hefeweizen’s origins is the key to their success. For those of you who’ve been scorned by the style in the past, Weissbier Hell is a redefining second opinion. And for all the Hef lovers out there, here’s a timeless addition.
