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!

hirigalzkar (2404) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2010
Bottle. Pours yellow-orange, hazy, with a small white head. Yeasty aroma, with notes of citrus and spices. Big, long lasting taste with notes of vanilla. Lots of candy banana and clove. Spicy (white pepper?) aftertaste. Refreshing and also very complex. Medium bodied. Smooth. Beautiful!

RichardGretton (4366) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2010
Bottle. Brillantly vibrant cloudy golden beer with a steady fairly strong white head. The aroma is fruity and yeasty, and the flavour is fairly bitter and citric with a strong yeasty finish. Overall a nice drinkable fruity and yeasty bitter beer.

brokensail (12222) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 26, 2010
A: The pour is a hazy golden color with a tint of orange and a creamy white head. S: A very nice citrus aroma and perhaps a bit of pineapple. Sweet wheat and malt aromas and the great German yeast gives off some bananas, cloves, and apples. T: The flavor is quite similar to the aroma. Good sweetness and yeast contributions and plenty of fruit (banana, apple, and oranges). There is a light bitterness to this one as well. M: Medium body with a smooth and creamy carbonation. Quite pleasant, indeed. D: I think I still like their regular Hefeweizen a bit better, but this is still a great beer. I might have to pick up a few more bottles.

asheft (2633) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2010
[bottle] Strong sweet malt aroma with some herbs, including coriander, and bubblegum and clove. Murky dark yellow-orange under wispy white and a thick ring. Sweet malt, clove and bubblegum flavour. Excellent Weißbier on steroids. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, sweet finish with a tang of wheat malt sourness.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 19, 2010
Pours murky blonde with a moderate white head. Nose is coriander and bananas, with a touch of yeast...not too far off a good witbier. Flavor contains the above, with a bit of floral hops, bitter citrus, and apples. Finish is fruit and yeast. A solid beer that hides its alcohol very well.

Finhead (1284) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2010
A hazy yellow pour with fluffy, white head. The aroma is a nice mixture of wheat, citrus, cloves, and a hint of banana. The taste somewhat tangy and sweet all at once with lively carbonation. It is full bodied and the finish has slight bitterness which makes me drink even quicker. This beer literally gets better with each sip.

hayduke (3545) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 16, 2010
From a 500 ml bottle from the Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA this poured a clear gold with a fat off-white head. Nose is of wheat with banana and cloves. Medium body and a lively mouthfeel. Flavor shows a lot of citrus and banana.

mrhoppy (1289) - Santa Clara, California, USA - JUL 14, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2013 Pours a butterscotch-yellow, with a massive white head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is banana, clove, bread/yeast and malt. Taste is sweet, banana, clove, coriander and yeast. Finish is sweet and refreshing.Smells and tastes like Leffe Blond with German character. Excellent beer but I wish it was bottle conditioned with sediment in the bottom of the bottle.

jefcon (1451) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Pours a nice golden with a tall white head. Aromas of banana, spice, flowers and lemon. Very bright beginning on the palate, but lemon and banana flavors shrink to rhubarb, broccoli, and vegetal finishes. Alcohol is too high, and spicy, promising notes fade into a sickly finish.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Banana and clove dominate the aroma with hints of sweet citrus. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a thick white head. Very spicy, clove and corriander with hints of nutmeg with banana and citrus flavors, bread-like malts as well. Very nice!!!
