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!

500ml gushing bottle shared with Stefan and Elisabeth. Decent white head, pale golden body. Aroma of wheat, fruits, and lighter traces of spices. Clove, dusty hops, ripe banana, and yeasty fruitiness in the taste character. Sweet and tart endnotes. Medium bodied. OK drinking (Tromsø, 22.08.2011).

500 ml bottle from BevMo online (Pleasanton). Nose is big ripe bananas, yeast, and wheaty bread, with hints of cloves.Hazy yellow with a big pale yellow, lightly lacing head. Flavor is very bready wheat, bananas, white pepperiness, and very light bitterness. Excellent! Wish I had a case!

Bottle. Probably getting near the drink by, though I couldn’t find it. Very cloudy medium gold with a fine, low head. Pretty. Aroma dominated by lemon and sweet orange, wheat comes through well. Sweet, spicy, rich wheat flavor, orange, clove, banana, almost tropical fruit: a bit of pineapple. Somewhat bitter fiish. Big, smooth, rounded palate. Low carbonation. Delicious.

16.9 oz bottle. Pours cloudy yellow-orange with a nice pillowy off-white head. Aroma consists of clove and SweeTarts first and foremost with some banana lurking in the background. Taste is sweet and spicy. Flavor is much more banana-pronounced. Also very bubblegummy. Mouthfeel is pleasantly creamy and the carbonation is high. Yummy..

Aroma is cloves and lemon peel. Orange spice. Halfway between a weizenbock and a hefe. Excellent for style. Appearance is hazy bright yellow. Tall foamy head. Big carbonation. Sunny. The flavor is strong bubblegum and flowers. Touch of citrus and alcohol. Spicy clove. A sugary (but not too sweet) malt base grounds it -- a real backbone. The astringent alcohol (it IS 7.7%, after all), is the last flavor. The palate is creamy, chewy, with a solvent-like finish. You can drink this chilled or warm. It’s a well-grounded, not too sweet, not too banana-y, dark-flavored hef. You could call it Hef-Wei between.

Pours from bottle as though a brown ale were simultaneously poured into a pilsner. Nice yeast notes on the nose. Nice clove balanced by some malt on the tongue. Finish tends to hang around a bit. Nice!

16/08/2011 Ma che siete venuti a fà (tap). Color miele, torbida, bel cappello di schiuma bianca, morbida e abbastanza persistente. Al naso sentori di lievito, frumento, frutta (banana), leggero agrumato e spezie. In bocca morbidissima, incredibilmente ben bilanciata, dolciastra, con note di frumento, frutta, lieviti. Buon corpo, cremosa al palato, carbonazione soft. Magnifica.

16.9 oz. bottle- Pours a cloudy orange, which is surprising, I was expecting it to be darker, it has a thick pillowy white head. The aroma is very yeasty, banana, some clove and a little pepper. The taste is sharp and tart, followed by a mild mellow banana yeasty flavor. Body is medium to almost full, carbonation is high. Overall I did like the hefe alot better, but its still nice.

Bottle (500ml):
Large banana presence with lots of citrus and cloves. Bread also features and overall this is a nice herbal aroma. Some minor hints of alcohol too.
Cloudy yellow with tinges of orange. Forms a massive, foamy white head that has excellent retention.
Solid banana & clove taste to this one upfront that is perfectly balanced.Good overall sweetness & the taste is clean with no trace of alcohol.
Medium bodied & with a smooth, creamy texture that is quite clean & crisp. Nice dryness to the finish.
An excellent wheat beer, it has a solid, well balanced flavour and some good banana notes that work well to mask the high abv.
