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 beer didnít do it for me. To me it just tasted a bit marginal.. Normal. Not very unique in itís style.

(bottled) I was expecting something like Aventinus , this is way differing and like standard a Hef on booze steroids(i dig their Hef a lot) but this isnt as flavoursome . Rich bananary and sticky palate. Cloying , in a plesant way.

Bottle from Maruhn, Darmstadt
Mudy orange-golden color; generous head, compact. The aroma is nice, fruity (banana). The body is lean, it is quite highly carbonated, the mouthfeel is very smooth; good malt and wheat flavor, with a moderate residual sweetness, and good balance of spices and fruitiness; the bitterness is quite low. Very harmonious.

LiteWait (267) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Poured from a 1 pint bottle. Hazy golden yellow with lots of carbonation. Thin white bubbly head. Thick lacing. Aroma is very strong of orange peel and spices. Makes my mouth water just sitting there.. ok taste; is all spice. Very tingly on the tongue. Leaves the mouth dry. Reminds me of the old orange-julios. Not bad, but not what I expected. The bottle and label was brown.. automatically assumed it was a dark beer. I would buy again.

Cloudy dark yellow with a white head. Aroma is sweet, wheaty, banana, yeasty, citrus and cloves. Flavor is quite sweet and light acidic. Dry and light acidic finish. Feels like a strong wit. 270511

RedSox2004 (1587) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Hazy straw yellow with a beautiful dense two-finger bright white head. Diversity of aromas including clove and other spices, banana, pear, grass/wheat, apple. Variety of flavors as well, with a fruitiness that leaned toward tart granny smiths and bread crust and nuts maltiness. Medium body, tons of carbonation, slightly creamy mouthfeel, and a pleasant tartness in the finish.

flatmatt (1395) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JUN 5, 2011
500 mL bottle. Pours a very lightly hazed bright golden with a white head. Clove aroma, banana, with a little grassiness, bubble gum, and wheat. Wheat leads the flavor with bubble gum, cloves, apple, and banana. Again some slight hints of grassiness, now with citrus. Pretty nice.

RB1 (118) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Bottle purchased at Total Wine, Gilbert, AZ. 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. This is as good as wheat beer gets. True brewing art. For itís style, one of the best beers in the world.

RolkaNation (141) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Bottle poured into weizen glass. Beautiful looking beer, straw yellow, hazy, 2 finger fluffy, creamy head that gets down to a thin layer in about 5 mins. Outstanding nose of intense belgian spice, yeast, esters, banana, and a hint of bubblegum. Creamy on the palate. Amazing taste. Wheat upfront taste with more yeasty spice upfront before ending with an intense dark fruit sweet finish that is gone fairly quickly. Some more banana and clove throughout and slightly boozey. Love this brand, love this beer.
