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!

downender (6134) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2009
500ml bottle. Hazy gold with a big, tight white head. Aroma of yeast, bubble gum and tropical fruits. Grainy mouth feel, with pineapple, cloves, lemon and a decent dry finish. Very good.

Bottle from Sun Devil Liquor as part of a great haul today. Pours a nice honey color, just slightly hazy, with a fine white head which dissipates to a ring around the glass. Smells like lemon and wheat. Very nice bubbly mouthfeel. Tastes like hops, malt, yeast, and water. Very nice.

Aroma reminds me of lemons, clove. and a hint of banana, very fragrant, a little malty in the nose, like a sweet bread. Appearance is cloudy orange with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Although it is cloudy, the brew looks clean. Flavor is very complex hitting many fruity and sweet notes finishing with a citrus and clove zing that lingers, very little hops. The lively carbonation is complimentary to the flavors and this good example of Weizenbock beir.

At 30e PINT bokbierfestival (Oct 2007 Amsterdam). Orange body with large white head. Malty and fruity nose. Taste of fruits and malts. Sweet and enjoyable.

Capa (1963) - Manama, BAHRAIN - FEB 22, 2009
Cloudy orange with a white head. Sweet malty aroma with some fruits, light citrus, banana, clove. Lower carbonation and thicker mouth. Flavor of banana, yeast, clove, fresh fruits, and malty. A very enjoyable weizen bock.

dmac (3896) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Hazy orangey yellow with an average size fluffy white head. Smells like sweet bread and cotton candy. Initial flavor starts off rather sweet then finishes with some citrus lemon bitterness. A little to sweet for a morning beer after NOTB.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Very pale golden pour with a hefty amount of carbonation and a big white head. Hefty amounts of clove, lemon, banana and wheat in the aroma. Very spicy mouthfeel with yeast and wheat along with a bit of banana and an awesome clove finish that lingers for a solid minute after the beer is gone. I’m slowly falling in love with the "oldest brewery in the world".

DYCSoccer17 (3290) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 21, 2009
500 mL bottle purchased at the Davis Food Co-Op. Aroma has plenty of lemon, wiith lots of banana esters. Some metallic notes are also there along with a bit of sulfur. I don’t think I have ever seen a weizenbock this light in color, although i havent’t had many in my life. Modestly hazy golden body with a large, frothy, white head and lots of lacing present. Sweet, banana yeasty coconut flavors present to start, which is followed by a sticky, metallic, lager-bock-flavor. Some grassiness and cereal graininess is in there. A little warming to finish with a crisp herbal hop bite.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - FEB 20, 2009
500ml brown bottle served in a hefe glass. Poured a hazy pale gold. Lots of carbonation, typical for a wheat beer. Thick white head. Plenty of clove in the aroma more than banana. This is the way I prefer it! Medium to light bodied, nice smooth mouthfeel. Spicy flavor from both the yeast and the wheat. Also some fruitiness. Lingering clove flavor in the finish. You can taste that there is strength there, but it is not hot. Plenty of malt. This is a classic weizenbock.

surprisingly golden for a weizen bock, large white head. moderate/high carbonation. very flavorful with some clovey esters with no discerning hop component and a very clean finish. the alochol provides a little depth. very good and unique
