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!

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Bottle. Cloudy, dull yellow body with some frothy white head. Aromas of banana, clove, citrus, and spice. Tastes as good as it smells with more banana, clove, and a nice creamy texture. Tasty!

ComradeK (1100) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy light-gold, with a colossal white head, excellent retention and good lace. The aroma is a little muted, thanks to the head, but there are some typical weizen notes lurking in there, predominantly cloves and banana. Spicy hops up front introduce a smooth weizen body, with a fairly standard sweet finish. There is nothing at all wrong with this, but it is a bit too similar to many other weizens, and doesn’t really stand out in the way that other weizen bocks, Erdinger Pikantus being a good example, do. Still, it is a nice enough beer.

tabernae (178) - Latina, ITALY - MAY 16, 2011
quando si dice che l’abito non fa il monaco. lo fa lo fa, almeno nella vitus è così, la versi nel bicchiere e pensi che sia tra le cose più belle del mondo, con quelle 4 dita di schiuma compatte e pannose li su. l’aroma è di malto, con note fruttate di esteri, un pò di luppolo. in bocca è perfettamente bilanciata, tra la cremosità del frumento e la componente amara dei luppoli, in più nonostante la gradazione è così facile da bere con quella carbonazione seducente.

maneliquor (3482) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2011
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Decent but not quite as good as the original hefe. More potent but doesnt present the same overrall feel that the hefe gives. Still good

DuffMan (9016) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 10, 2011
Bottle. Hazy bright lemony yellow with a huge whipped meringue on top. Aroma fills the room with banana, clove spice, and bubblegum. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, featuring flavours of banana, bubblegum, sweet spices, and with hints of vanilla cookie, marzipan, and wheaty esters. Not even a hint of the ABV. This was so good!

suprchunk (2923) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2011
Cloudy amber with a pretty nice sized head. No lacing and the head fades down to a nice layer of creamy bubbles. Big banana, clove, bubble gum, and yeast smell - and alcohol. Nice banana cream pie smell. Tastes are the same with an alcohol back end. Liking chewing Hubba Bubba and a banana. A little numbing. Nice creamy mouthfeel with a big alcohol warmth. Nice beer.

Banana, wheat malt awesomeness. This beer was so delicious after having a tasting night I enjoyed this beer very much.

Koelschtrinker (16252) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 3, 2011
Milder Antrunk, fruchtig, deutlich aber nicht übertrieben hefig. Ab dem Mittelteil malziger, dann wieder fruchtiger. Zum Ende erneut malzig weich, hier bockartiger, etwas dunkler, leicht cremig. Gut aufeinander abgestimmt, zum Ende auch etwas herb. Sehr süffig!

Nekronos (3967) - Xalapa, MEXICO - MAY 2, 2011
Just awesome. I thought this was going to be one of the weakest from this brewery and was a punch! nice weizen taste and features. NOt annoying in taste although strong in alcohol. Excellent head and shape.

Defreni (2930) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2011
Flaske: Orangegul uklar øl med et stort skumhoved. Klassisk hefe weiss i udseende. Duften er igen tydelig weiss med en god del banan fra gæren og tydelig hvede. Smagen er lidt mindre banan præget med et stort bid fra alkoholen. Fin fin øl.
