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!

11-NOV-2011, draft @"Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fa", Rome. Cloudy beige with a huge white head that really coats the glass. Lovely weisse aroma and taste with all the right yeasty elements and then an extra citrus element that adds freshness to an quite full and creamy brew. Marianne loved this.

Poured from bargain $3 / 16.9 oz bottle - Yes! Really liked this one. Not that familiar with weizenbocks, but I recognize those Belgian-type flavors of banana, clove, caramel, and orange. It’s like a high-octane Belgian--basically. Alcohol does come through on the end, but I like it, especially considering the price.

500 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a large foamy white head. Aroma of bread, bananas, wheat and spices. Taste is bananas, yeast, wheat, citrus and spices. Lots going on here. A bit sweet. Very good.

VITUSBEERHOUSE (216) - SANTIAGO DE LOS CABALLEROS, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - NOV 6, 2011
Vitus tiene un color amarillo muy particular es turbia cuando se destapa el olor es bastante marcado a fruta con varios aromas de flores incluyendo clavos dulces,al paladar es muy intensa pero bien agradable,para mi paladar es demasiado aromatica y, una es muy agradable,varias me cansan un poco. La recomiendo porque es bastante particular ,diferente a las otras weizenbock

Bottle. Nice hazy golden colour wtih a creamy white head on top. Good carbonation going on. Aroma of vanilla, banana and sugar. Flavour is full of ripe banana sweetness and feels really creamy. I could drink loads of this stuff... awesome.

(Flasche in Weißbierglas) Das Vitus hat ein schöne, starke Hefetrübung und eine orange-gelbe Färbung, die fast ins bräunliche geht. Abgerundet wird das Aussehen durch eine feine, weiße Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist sehr malzig und wirkt etwas schwer. Der Geschmack hingegen ist nicht so schwer, dennoch aber vollmundig-malzig, mit einem gut erkennbaren hopfigen Gaumengeschmack. Zusammenfassend ein leckerer, süffiger Weizenbock

Bottle. Zero idea why I haven’t rated this yet, have had it so many times. Being a fan of Weihenstephaners hefe, this is just impossible to dislike. It’s like the hefe, just more of everything. Pours a light cloudy yellow with a huge rocky head that leaves tons of lacing everywhere. Aroma is big on ripe banana, lemon, cloves, breadiness, yeast. Fairly sweet tasting at first, it follows up with a spicy and fruity midsection with a good amount of sourness and bitterness to balance it off perfectly. One of the best things about it is its velvety, full, thick, creamy mouthfeel. Very drinkable. Simply delicious.

reebtogi (5682) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 26, 2011
500ml bottle poured a deep golden color with a big white head with great retention leaving some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is fruity with some malts and hops. Taste is lightly toasted malty sweetness and some fruitiness and a mild pleasant hoppy bitter finish. Medium body and nice carbonation round things out. A very nice brew which is highly recommended.
