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!

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2010 Bottle. A - Slightly hazy golden color with a large, thick, creamy, soapy, sticky, white head. Pretty good retention with a sticky thin layer of lace. Extremely light color for the style. S - A lot of wheat aroma with banana, clove, and some bubblegum. Touches of vanilla and pepper and some alcohol. T - A lot of wheat flavor with some pale malt. A good amount of banana flavor along with plenty of clove and pepper. Some bubblegum and yeasty flavors as well. Some spicy hops later on as well. Some alcohol heat also comes out. Some tangy/tart wheat flavor also comes out a bit. M - Medium body with plenty of carbonation. A bit of a smooth feel with just a touch of drying finish. D - Easy to drink with a nice amount of flavor and a good body, but a little spicy and a bit too much alcohol heat to really be all that drinkable. Notes: Definitely not like other weizenbocks that I have had, seems more like a bigger hefeweizen. Overall not a bad beer, but it wasn’t entirely balanced and not what I was expecting. Not a bad beer, but I was expecting a bit better given the track record of this brewery.

In bottle; aroma quite lemony. Taste of spciy notes which a lemony, citrusy finish. Overall a good beer but I think I enjoy the Ayinger weizen-bock better

Alphadelic (1965) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Hazy orange in colour. Classic clove with a hint of spirituous brandy on the nose. Rich and strong in the mouth with classic fruity and sulphurous weiss characteristics.

popery (1687) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Excellent. Vitus is a thick hazy light to medium golden liquid with a silky head of tiny bubbles. The nose is sweet with the spiced wheat banana flavor of good German wheat beer. The flavor is all wonderful wheat. There are notes of banana, clove, bubblegum and some other hard to place fruits and spices. It’s quite sweet. The relatively high abv is well-hidden from both tongue and nose. The mouthfeel is luxuriously velvety. The finish is a bit tart and sweet, like a candied lemon rind. Vitus goes down exceptionally smoothly, particularly for the strength. I’m going through this half liter much too quickly. Vitus is a rich, luxurious and complex Doppelbock.

Pours a golden straw with a nice white head. Nose has tropical fruits and wheat. Taste also has some nice crisp, colorful fruits along with cloves, citrus and bready malts. Clean, refreshing body. Great beer.

Great beer at any price. I can’t believe that it was so cheap. The taste reminds me of a nice golden Helles, but it finishes clean and coherent.

tomer (2257) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 29, 2010
Draught, smallish head, murky peach orange colour with some lemon yellow taints, mellow aroma of bubblegum, with some yeasty earthiness, honey vanila and mustard, flavour of bubblegum, banana, nuts and a piercing fruity sourness with no trace of alcohol leading to a medium sour aftertaste with apleasant touch of sweetness, body just a tad to light. unusual and very impressive.

DSG (8665) - Tel Aviv, - AUG 29, 2010
Draught at Dixie in Tel Aviv. Cloudy golden with a medium creamy white head. Aroma of banana, apples and more fruits, clove, citric hints and yeast. Sweet wheaty flavor with fruit esters, yeasty spiciness, some malt, caramel notes and a finish with more pronounced spiciness and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied. Tasty and quite refreshing but I prefer their regular Weissbier.

theOptimator (340) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 27, 2010
Strong clove and slight banana aroma. Very fruity. Hazy dark yellow with very large white head that lingers. Flavor is strong and similar to scent. Spicy clove, and banana, maybe some apricot. Finishes off with a slight flavor of darkness/roastyness. Slight hotness present. Spicy hops is mildly present and goes well with clove. Predominantly sweet/malty. Palate is medium full. Overall this is a very good beer, easily the best I have had of the style.
