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!

Psytron (1768) - Turku, FINLAND - AUG 3, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2011 Re-rating 5.8.2011: Yeasty, fruity smell. Pale yellow-greyish colour. Thick, lasting head. Aroma very yeasty. Taste somewhat sweet. Soft carbonation. All in all a bit lighter than it could be, but one of the finer weizenbocks available.

JStax (4637) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2011
Poured into a footed pilsner. Appearance is a hazy copper to gold with an almost purple hue to it. Interesting look to it. Huge billowing white head rests atop the brew. Aroma is full of dark fruits, sweet grassy notes, abundant esters. Taste is super sweet bananas, slight bubblegum note, touch of spicy cloves. Tingly and slightly stingy mouthfeel. Loads going on in this beer. I like it a lot.

harrisoni (16837) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2011
On tap at Euston Tap. Hazy paleish gold thin white head. Yes some decent intense bubblegum and banana. Really tasty. I like this. First beer of the day on a hot day and it went down way too easy. Drinkable and enjoyable fruity edge to it. Good wheat beer.

laiti (7909) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2011
50 cl bottle. Rated on 29.8.2008
Aroma has a bit aged banana, wheat, yeast and hints of alcohol. Flavour has also ripe banana with hints of citrus and spices. Good weizenbock, but still far from Aventinus.

rougeau13 (2493) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUL 20, 2011
Pale orange-yellow with a small whitish head. Aroma of spices, banana, lemon, wheat and caramel. Strong yeasty and sweet flavor with a bold spiciness and mild bitterness. Medium-full bodied and a little fizzy. Quite enjoyable.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden with a huge persistent white head. Aroma and flavor are banana and bubble gum, some graininess, a fair bit of yeast. To be honest, I don’t see or taste a lot of differences between this and the Weihenstephaner hefeweiss. Maybe this one is spicier, but I don’t get much more malt. The color is not darker. Maybe a bit sweeter, but not really fruitier. I was expecting more bock elements. Lots of carbonation, but not prickly on the tongue. Pretty tasty.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2011
Bottle, right now. Medium hazy, high head the fineness of marshmallow, streaming carbonation like an aspirin’s been chucked in it. Bright, heady aroma awash with banana candy, green cardamom, lemon curd tart and botanical, Belgian-like suggestions. Thick, peppery, banana and reindeer beater-dominated flavour wafting with ground coriander and cardamom-like exoticism despite the reinheitsgewhatsit. A refresher, a summerbier, a beer you could sink by the mass on a balmy Bavarian evening. Or just an evening. Cooled the heat of my midnight turkey Madras just perfectly, so much so I’ve just realised German weizen bocks are the most consistently brilliant and astonishing beers in der Welt.
