COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A light-coloured, spicy single-bock wheat beer, for both beer lovers and the beer connoisseur. Extra long and cold storage in our monastery cellars makes this single-bock a really special beer with full body and a distinctively great mouthfeel. Prost!

Marko (4053) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 7, 2010
At the Weihenstephaner at the Hackesher Markt, Berlin. Poured an opaque apricot body with a medium sized thick white head. Gluey banana nose, very very nice. Sweet taste, mostly banana, light, lactic traces, chalky, superb balance and mouthfeel. Light hop, slightly acidic, near the end. Just lovely.

I normally think of weizen bocks as being darker in color but this is the same hazy straw yellow of most hefeweizens. Likewise it pours w/ a huge head that leaves behind big bands of lacing. Bananas up front in the nose w/ a bit of a tart tang and some floral notes. Medium bodied, slick on the tongue but also slightly sticky and sweet. Just loads of bananas in the flavor and a twinge of alcohol but very easily drinkable despite this. This is a nice weizen for sure but I think the regular hefe is a better brew.

hawthorne00 (2543) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2010
Bottle, 8C. Nearly opaque orange with white 2 inch quivering dome of a head that is back inside the glass pretty quickly. Highish bead. Nose of lemon, cloves, bread dough. Quite sweet with balancing citric tartness. Full almost chewy palate with quite a lot of orange, banana and spice. I find the lack of darker malts confusing - why drink this instead of their hefe weissbier? Is the extra alcohol supporting anything?

RickTStiles (782) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Pours hazy goldenrod with a pillowy but diminishing head. Aroma is sweetened lemon and yeast. Taste is citrus fruit with hints of banana, vanilla, bubblegum and residual yeast. Full bodied with a very wet mouth-feel. finishes light but the citrus remains taking on more of a lemon peel character. Very nice summer beer

ako (166) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2010
Hazy yellow, white head. Aroma mostly of overripe banana. Flavor adds liquorice-like notes. Feels quite balanced, but not just my favorite style.

bevuta solamente in Bottiglia, si presenta bellissima nel suo colore ambrato con la sua splendita testa bianca compattissima.abbastanza Dolce e molto chiaro la punta di banana, arancia e chiodi di garofano finale leggermente amarognolo. questa si che è una birra!

jerohen (2029) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2010
Bottled at home. Golden colored, big lasting head, lots of carbonation. Nose of malts and wheat. Sweet malty flavor, not enough bitterness to compensate. Not really special.

drjay44 (2730) - Salida, Colorado, USA - FEB 26, 2010
650 ml bottle. Bottled 090225. Pours a thin white head with minimal lacing, over a cloudy, yellow (SRM 3) body....nose is light clove, light lemon, bit of banana/bubblegum.....taste is again light clove, lemon, bubblegum....mouth feel is medium to light, carbonation low. This is a light Weizen Bock, with aromas and flavors much lower than many. It has all of the right qualities, but they are on the light side. The brewery does call it a single Bock. BJCP 8/3/12/4/7

Cybercat (3497) - Georgia, USA - FEB 24, 2010
Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a thick, if not too persistent, fluffy white head. Aroma is strong, yeasty and a little lemony with malty and rubbery hints. Refreshing flavor is crisp, malty, yeasty and lemony with a hint of hop bitterness. Texture is strongly tingly, yet it slides smoothly down the pipes. It leaves a nice tingle on the tongue and inside the lips.

500cl - Doughy yeast aroma with sweet bubblegum and wheat. Flavor of sweet malts and spicy doughy yeast. Clean palate. A tasty brew.
