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!

500 mL bottle from Beers of Europe into a pint glass. Yellow/orange cloudy beer with a good bubbly head on it. Good wheat aroma with a little more to it. Pleasant weiss beer, but not as different as I was expecting. Dry, wheaty, slightly boozy.

dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 3, 2012
Pours hazy yellow into the glass with a small white head. Strong citrus attacks the nose with candy and banana notes. Faint hints of thyme. Taste is mostly sweet with a light sourness and bitterness. Light body with a very creamy texture. Finish is bitter and lasts for about 15 seconds before you are ready for another sip. This is highly drinkable.

spkevin (433) - Doetinchem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2012
Bottle (past its shelflife). Hazy yellow pour with a big white head. Banana, bread, caramel and wheat in the aroma. Same hints in the taste. A lot of bread notes with the banana, bock notes and wheat notes. Very nice and long aftertaste with some hops. Very nice!

lord_totenkopf (314) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 12, 2011
On tap at Csak a j sr. Cloudy, light yellow liquid with minimal white head. Aroma is sort of bitterish with citruses some slight herbal notes and almond maybe. Taste brings in the more usual wheaty sweetness: a bit of honey and sweet wheat mush. Very complex weizen bock, I really like how balanced and still exciting is the taste and the aroma.

500ml bottle

Pours light yellow with a small white head. Aroma has notes of banana, malts, yeast and earthy notes. Taste is quite fruity and malty with notes of bananas, spices and earthy hints. Full bodied, smooth finish. Nice, quite balanced weizen bock.

Finn (6284) - Troms, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2011
Flaske 0,5l. Gave fra Rune. Drukket hjemme 19 Sep 11. Gyldenbrun. Veldig uklar. Ikke pen. Hyt luftig skum som varte noen minutter. God hvetelaroma. Sitrus o.s.v. Veldig st p smak. Litt plommer, litt rosiner. Mye kullsyre. Antydning til bitterhet i ettersmaken. Skuffende.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2011
Bottle, Coppers, Ncl. This is a really excellent beer. Pours a hazy pale gold, with a large, pillowy, white head. Beautifully sweet, but not sickly, subtle spices and cloves anda lovely sugary aftertaste, which is totally in balance. Has a lasting finish, with the alcohol arriving quite late, to give a warming sensation in the chest.
