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!

NachlamSie (2754) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Bottle. Pours a super cloudy orange with a massive, frothy, everlasting white head and visibly active carbonation. Itís really a beautiful sight in the weizen glass. The aroma is spicy and peppery with lots of clove and banana, everything deliciately blanced. The flavor is a little harsher than Iíd expect from Weihenstephan, but not bad. Itís surprisingly hoppy in a husky, vegetal way and a rye flavor is present. The finishes with esters of clove and banana with a metallic twang. This is heartier than the hefeweizen and a little more tart. Pretty good.

blipp (6072) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Bottle. Foamed over a little bit. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Spicy and yeasty aroma, with clove and banana. The flavor has doughy, bready malts, clove, banana, and a bit of an acidic hint. Pretty good, but Iíve had way better weizen bocks.

joeyplush (628) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2009
Cloudy orange with a thick foamy head. Aroma has some lactic acid, bananas, and dough. Flavor is full bodied, with some citrus and a crisp finish. Not my favorite beer from this brewer, but still excellent.

DiabolikDUB (147) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 13, 2009
Poured from 500ml bottle into Pint glass. Pours a hazy golden color with a slight orange glow. It poured with a huge frothy white head. It has strong aroma of banana and cloves which I expected along with some yeast. It has a spicy flavor which I very much enjoy. Some flavors I picked up on were banana, a slight mango, clove and I think Iím getting some ginger in there as well. Its a light bodied effervescent beer. Overall its extremely approachable for its higher alcohol.

rajendra82 (952) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Prototypical Weizen appearance, the pale body, the large head, and cloudy consistency were unmistakable. The aroma was also classic banana and clove, and was pretty inviting. The taste was a lot spicier than the Hefeweizen this looked like. The clove notes were much more pronounced and there was also some sourness apparent. Very light in the mouth, which is quite typical of wheat based beers, but it was quite a bit lighter than anticipated considering this is a Weizenbock. Probably the easiest to drink near 8% beer Iíve sampled. Way different than Aventinus or any other examples of this style.

Hank1980 (942) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Bottle. Poured a lightly clouded gold with a huge white head. Aroma of banana, clove, wheat. Itís a little musty as well - not sure what that is. Taste is wheat, banana, yeast, clove - pretty sweet. Mouth is dry and carbonation is lively. Overall, a nice interesting wheat brew.

noompa (130) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2009
50 cl. bottle (2009) in a weizen glass. Pours a hazy golden w/ a mighty robust meringue white head (huge head as befits the style); aroma is sweet banana, wheaty and some oily residue; flavor is more banana, strong wheat and citrus; effervescent mouthfeel, ending crisp, sweet and refreshing. Should have used darker malts. Nowhere as complex and dense as Aventinus, but quite drinkable.

smith4498 (3009) - Miami, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2009
Pours hazy straw color with big white head. Aromas of wheat, clove and banana. Wheat, clove, banana, lemon and yeast flavors. Medium body with fizzy carbonation.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1122) - FINLAND - APR 27, 2009
Bottle. Hazy yellow with a huge white head. Aroma of banana, yeast and wheat. The flavour is banana, yeast, wheat and malt with notes of alcohol. Nice and refreshing brew, but not as good as Hefe Weissbier from the same brewery.

Coltrane (108) - South Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2009
Banana, cloves, wheat, sweetness, tang, yup. All of that. Great example of a weizenbock. Hefeweizen plus alcohol with a bit of a kick. A very nice beer, and quite refreshing.
