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!

on tap at Taco Mac Windward... arrived at the table a cloudy deep golden with a thin white head ... I feel this would have a much bigger head when poured from the bottle... wonderful banana aroma with some lemon and a touch of spice... medium body that is soft and creamy... really delightful over the tongue.... some yeast, spice and wheat... a very drinkable somewhat stronger beer that can really quench your thirst while bringing a lot of flavor to the table.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 23, 2009
Bottle: Pours clear gold, big white head and nice lacing. Nose of strong esters and yeasty hefe notes, banana, clove, bread. Flavor is nice, a bit of nutty fruit, bread and some chewy raisin. Nice malty mouthfeel and a yeasty bready body. Seems like a hefe to me, not a bock, maybe a heller bock.... Nice yeastiness. Looking at the description, I guess I always assumed weizenbocks usually came in the doppel format. Nice twist.

Very nice. Rich and creamy. Generally a solid doppelbock flavor here, but just a bit of wheat bite to it. Very flavorful.

radagast83 (4911) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - OCT 1, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma is roasted, malty. It’s a pretty decent bock, a style I’m always iffy on.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2009
Pours a hazy golden orange with hints of dark ripe banana and cloudy golden yellow hues when held to a light source and a 2 finger frothy white head that slowly fizzles into a thin cap. Nice spicy clove aroma with a very prominent citrus peel presence. Hints of orange, lemon and grapefruit as well as a very nice ripe banana scent. Smells slightly tart. Awesome! Extremely well-balance beer that’s on the fuller side of medium body. A perfect amalgam of spicy clove, sweet citrus fruit, corriander and ripe banana notes. The spicy cloves are pretty prominent up front followed by a a perfect blend of lemon peel, orange peel, ripe banana and subtle hops. There is also a very nice slight tartness in the dry finish. This is a complex beer that is extremely drinkable and refreshing. Highly recommended!
