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!

This slightly hazy light golden brew has that classic german wheat beer quality build and appearance. The aroma is lightly sweet and spicy. The mouthfeel is quite smooth and buttery with lots of sweet spicy flavors from the malts, yeast and hops. Clean, bubblegum finish.

Fevernova (210) - Athens, Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2010
500mL Bottle -- Pours a pale yellow-orange with a small off-white head. Aromas of fig, apricot, pineapple, caramel, and band-aid . Fuller bodied with a sticky mouth-feel. Some bitterness but mostly malty.

Strykzone (5386) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2010
Very much unfiltered. A head that reminds me of marshmallows. Nose is bananas and clove. Those are also dominant flavors with a bit of lemon, a mild dry bitterness light bubblegum, and soft fruit. It is more like a bigger hefe. This dangerously easy to drink and is quite tasty.

unclemike (2484) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - SEP 14, 2010
Light colored, frothy. Musty, clove, yeasty, slight alcohol on the nose. Quite fruity, almost a bit sour, slight spices and banana, although fruit is more dominant. This ones on the lighter, crisper, fruitier side of the weizenbocks i’ve had. Only detracters is their is a bit of a bland-salty aftertaste.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2010
0.5L bottle@ Øl og Mat fest 2010, Oslo. A yellow-blond cream head upon a shiny, dark yellow gold body. Soft wheaty, gently sweet toffee-ish malt aroma with lots of fruity esters. Taste is very sweet malty, smooth and wheaty, with banana and toffee flavors. Alcohol well hidden. Near full body. Appears as a sweet and powered up Hefeweizen.

At Glunz’ Restaurant on Lincoln in Chicago. A Helles Weizen Bock. Way way too drinkable for the strength. Yummy. Serving: tap

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 6, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2010 Bottle. A - Slightly hazy golden color with a large, thick, creamy, soapy, sticky, white head. Pretty good retention with a sticky thin layer of lace. Extremely light color for the style. S - A lot of wheat aroma with banana, clove, and some bubblegum. Touches of vanilla and pepper and some alcohol. T - A lot of wheat flavor with some pale malt. A good amount of banana flavor along with plenty of clove and pepper. Some bubblegum and yeasty flavors as well. Some spicy hops later on as well. Some alcohol heat also comes out. Some tangy/tart wheat flavor also comes out a bit. M - Medium body with plenty of carbonation. A bit of a smooth feel with just a touch of drying finish. D - Easy to drink with a nice amount of flavor and a good body, but a little spicy and a bit too much alcohol heat to really be all that drinkable. Notes: Definitely not like other weizenbocks that I have had, seems more like a bigger hefeweizen. Overall not a bad beer, but it wasn’t entirely balanced and not what I was expecting. Not a bad beer, but I was expecting a bit better given the track record of this brewery.
