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!

650 ml bottle. Bottled 090225. Pours a thin white head with minimal lacing, over a cloudy, yellow (SRM 3) body....nose is light clove, light lemon, bit of banana/bubblegum.....taste is again light clove, lemon, bubblegum....mouth feel is medium to light, carbonation low. This is a light Weizen Bock, with aromas and flavors much lower than many. It has all of the right qualities, but they are on the light side. The brewery does call it a single Bock. BJCP 8/3/12/4/7

Cybercat (3650) - Georgia, USA - FEB 24, 2010
Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a thick, if not too persistent, fluffy white head. Aroma is strong, yeasty and a little lemony with malty and rubbery hints. Refreshing flavor is crisp, malty, yeasty and lemony with a hint of hop bitterness. Texture is strongly tingly, yet it slides smoothly down the pipes. It leaves a nice tingle on the tongue and inside the lips.

500cl - Doughy yeast aroma with sweet bubblegum and wheat. Flavor of sweet malts and spicy doughy yeast. Clean palate. A tasty brew.

davidm (1978) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Bottle 500ml. Delicious beer. Aromas of apple, dough, vanilla, spice, and some alcohol. Taste is long-lasting, it has sweet and bitter notes, and also a tart touch. Palate is silky, and full-bodied. Yellow, bubbly, with a white creamy head.

wheatbeerboy (103) - Addison, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Tastes similar to Weihenstephaner’s Hefe-weisse only with more alcohol taste. I still prefer the hefe-weisse.

shrubber85 (8235) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 6, 2010
Bottle. Sweet banana, orange, clove and wheat malt aroma - very light astingent alcohol note. Cloudy yellow amber with moderate head. Very sweet orange/banana and clove flavor up front with a very nice wheat malt and light astringent/tangy finish. Moderate carbonation. Spectacular - everything I expected from Weihenstephaner.

Hazy golden colour with a very thick frothy white head. Strong aroma, very fruity. Taste is pleasant enough but I found the aroma absolutely overwhelming when drinking.

Wow the spiel above about the beer is pretty spot on. Light yet flavourful. Spicy , a bit hoppy and of course lots of sweet fruit. My new favourite Weihenstephaner and extra points for the great glass!

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Sampled at the 2008 Crescent Moon Summer Beerfest. Pours a pale light gold that is very cloudy. The thick white head hangs on for a long time. Has an unusual metallic aroma. I think that Ayinger Weizenbock is way better. Has good banana flavors. Rich and full bodied. There’s a bit of orange flavors in there as well. This is almost like drinking Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup. Crisp and sweet finish with bread dough and honey notes at the end.

floydian1 (1101) - FNQ, Australia, - JAN 24, 2010
500ml bottle into weizen glass. Body is hazy bright yellow with a large cream-white head that fades quite quickly. Estery nose of bananas, pears, cloves and vanilla on top of bready malts and light citrus hops. Taste is medium sweet with a nice spiciness to the finish. Rich syrupy mouthfeel with a moderate carbonation and fullish body. Overall tastes like a turbo-charged wheat beer that is still refreshing and sessionable. Just be careful with the ABV.
