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!

KnutAlbert (5757) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2009
Bottle in Italy. Wheaty, but with a strong alcohol character. Sourish, not easy to drink. Compared to their classic styled beers, this did not impress me at all.

TheJester (1726) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2009
500 mL bottle. 500 mL bottle. Cloudy orange with a small but sticky white head. Sweet citrus in the aroma, along with the usual wheat and spice. Less banana than some others. Flavour is sweet, with yeast and spice, and some wheat near the end. Alcohol is well hidden. Body is full and creamy, although it thins out near the end. Nicely carbonated. Above average, but not spectacular.

BOLTZ7555 (2701) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Quite fruity aroma with banana, citrus, and plum. 10 karat pour with a nice fluffy ivory head. Clove, sweet malt, and wheat. Not a bad beer, but probably won’t go after it again.

kingbubbatex (4) - boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 8, 2009 does not count
Poured from 500ml bottle. 51 degrees F. A light weizen bock, hazy straw/yellow color with big white head. Great banana/citrus aroma. Spicy with a nice tangy finish. 7.7% abv not noticeable. Recommended!

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 2, 2009
Not you typical weizen bock pour. Lightly hazed golden color with a tall white head. OK, typical hefe pour. Sweet wheat and ester aromas. Hints of yeast and fruit. Not real fresh smelling. Sweet malt and wheat flavors in the front followed by a mix of spice. Some cloves and banana in the finish and linger. Thick, yet a tight zip on the tongue. Not sure of the date of this one, but I’m quite certain this one fresh would be very good. The deeper I get into this one the more I like it. Nice malt base and very drinkable.

Quack-Duck (7517) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 2, 2009
bottle: Hazy brownish yellow, mid-sized head. Fruity nose with banana. Medium- to full-bodied, fruity, malty and yeasty. A bit thin, though.

Choos (564) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - FEB 2, 2009
Aroma: wheat clove and sweet malt with a hint of banana and alcohol. Appearance: cloudy yellow with a smallish white head that quickly flattened. Flavour: banana and clove in spades with heaps of sweet malt and some dry wheaty notes. Palate: thick and lingering banana.

kappldav123 (4582) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - FEB 2, 2009
The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Starts strong and yeasty, modest fruity in the background. Not too dry or sourish. Well balanced, warming finish. Really good!

16.9oz bottle. Pours a light golden yellow with a small foamy head. Aromas banana, clove and wheat. Flavors are banana, and yeasty wheat. Palate is superb. What a well crafted brew.
