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!

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2010
Bottle from Csakajosor.hu. Poured with a golden color and an off-white, creamy foam. Deliciously fruity aroma of banana, mango, vanilla, ginger with just the right spices. Grainy sweet taste in a medium dense body and medium carbonation. Yeasty, sweet aftertaste. Complex, excellent!

emacgee (4378) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 2, 2010
Pours a bright glowing yellow, sun shining on hay. Profuse billowy white head recedes leaving a sticky spiderweb of lace. Nose shows clove and lemonzest with notes of fresh baked bread and cider. Favor is rich and bready with a strong spice character. Alcohol comes through as does some banana. Too intense one the wheat/weisse yeast after a while.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5530) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2013 Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy golden color with a large yellow white head that lingers and produced good lacing. The aroma was moderately yeasty with notes of banana, clove and citrus. The flavor was sweet with notes of bread, yeast, clove, banana and faint citrus. The finish was long ,dryish and wheaty with notes of bread and clove lingering. Full bodied. Excellent.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2010
Pours a very hazed golden peach with a monstrous head of foam, which very slowly dissipates, leaving behind some very nice lacing. Lots of carbonation rushing to the top, and this continues for some time. The aroma is of a multitude of yeasty esters, the primary ones being--not surprisingly--clove (the most prominent), banana, and bubblegum. The taste is similar, but there is a certain cloying sweetness as well. A bit of the wheat seems to be coming through in the taste, although the mouthfeel is a little thin, so it’s not coming through in that regard. Drinkability is quite high, especially given the high abv, which there is no trace of in the taste or mouthfeel. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-22-2010

JohnRMurdoch (3792) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle from The Cave. Spicy bubblegum & yeast aroma. Cloudy yellow brown colour. Tastes of bubblegum yeast & cereal. Well balanced but a bit too strong for me.

Leighton (14043) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2010
Bottle at the Euston Tap. Pours cloudy orange with a strong, white head. Big wheat aroma with bubblegum, yeast, clove, citrus and banana. Flavor is quite sweet and full, with more bready yeast, mild spices and alcohol, followed by a very light bitterness. Medium to full in body with heavy carbonation and faint warmth. Finishes sweet, bready and fruity with mild, earthy bitters. Nice beer.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2010
Dusty bubblegum on the aroma. I swear it tastes a bit like chicken. Or fish? Fairly full in the mouth but no huge flavour. Smooth, hard to pin the flavour down, really. Wheaty with a hint of that bubblegum? Fizzy, citrusy candy?

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 24, 2010
Csak a jó sör, Budapest Egészen világos narancssárga, ködös színe van. A hab, ami a tetején keletkezik rajta a pohárba töltésekor, hatalmas, nagy buborékokkal teli és fehér, mint a nagymama dunyhája. Ez egy igen kitartó takaróként funkcionál. Illata olyan, mintegy trópusi gyümölcskosárnak, amiben van banán, mandarin, grapefruit, füge, cukordinnye és az egészre ráborult volna egy kis likőr. Ezek a finom gyümölcsök szépen és gazdagon visszaköszönnek az ízében is. Ehhez a ízkavalkádhoz hozzájárul még egy jó adag hársméz, élesztő, puncsos piskóta és vattacukor. Mintha csak egy gazdag, gyümölcsökkel és likőrös krémmel töltött karácsonyi süteménnyel lenne dolgunk. Ahogy melegszik, egyre több és több aroma bontakozik ki belőle. Haraphatóan testes és igen élő, pezsgősen buborékos. Utóíze is rendkívül gyümölcsös, itt már a komló is jelentkezik, keserédes és hosszan tartó. Fantasztikusan összetett és finom búzabak, ünnepek különleges itala. Kötelező darab!
