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!

Finhead (1350) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2010
A hazy yellow pour with fluffy, white head. The aroma is a nice mixture of wheat, citrus, cloves, and a hint of banana. The taste somewhat tangy and sweet all at once with lively carbonation. It is full bodied and the finish has slight bitterness which makes me drink even quicker. This beer literally gets better with each sip.

hayduke (3767) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 16, 2010
From a 500 ml bottle from the Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA this poured a clear gold with a fat off-white head. Nose is of wheat with banana and cloves. Medium body and a lively mouthfeel. Flavor shows a lot of citrus and banana.

mrhoppy (1289) - Santa Clara, California, USA - JUL 14, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2013 Pours a butterscotch-yellow, with a massive white head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is banana, clove, bread/yeast and malt. Taste is sweet, banana, clove, coriander and yeast. Finish is sweet and refreshing.Smells and tastes like Leffe Blond with German character. Excellent beer but I wish it was bottle conditioned with sediment in the bottom of the bottle.

jefcon (1502) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Pours a nice golden with a tall white head. Aromas of banana, spice, flowers and lemon. Very bright beginning on the palate, but lemon and banana flavors shrink to rhubarb, broccoli, and vegetal finishes. Alcohol is too high, and spicy, promising notes fade into a sickly finish.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Banana and clove dominate the aroma with hints of sweet citrus. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a thick white head. Very spicy, clove and corriander with hints of nutmeg with banana and citrus flavors, bread-like malts as well. Very nice!!!

Countbeer (5297) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2010
Draft @ OBM: Small white foamy head. Slightly hazy yellow. Smell some fruit (citrus) and wheat. As well as hints of malt and sour. Taste is super fresh and fruity. Taste wheats and fruit (citrus, lemon)and slight hint of hops. Very tasty and refreshing, nicely balanced and soft and fruity palate.

Sigmund (5723) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2010
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.7%. Very pale yellow colour, hazy, with a huge white head. Much paler than any other weizenbock I’ve had. Lovely typical sweetish hefeweizen aroma with notes of ripe bananas, cloves and bubblegum. The flavour is sweet and fruity, but still fairly light bodied for its strength. Moderate notes of cloves, very moderate hops. A very different character compared to e.g. Schneider Aventinus, but nice enough to drink.

Draft. Medium golden& cloudy pour. Hefe like qualites in the nose, bananas & clove. Taste was bananas, clove, well balanced & great fuller mouthfeel. Very good beer

appearance: cloudy golden orange with 2 finger white head and good amount of tiny bubbles that keep the head going, although the head pretty quickly dissipates to about half a finger. minimal lacing. aroma: bready with dried fruit (maybe figs?). very nice. taste: very good-- lightly sweet; lightly bitter, palate: fizzy carbonation, medium body; excellent crisp finish with some extra sweetness at the very end. overall-- very good beer. will be having this one again for sure. the balance of the taste and crisp finish is great.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 26, 2010
Tasted 6/22/10. 500ml bottle. Hazy and golden with yellow highlights. Layer of white head. Aromas of mild caramel and citrus with a touch banana esters. Medium bodied with a tart effervescence and a bright citrus note. Estery undertones with nuances of strawberries and raspberries. Bright carbonation. Banana yeast notes that blend very nicely between the caramel and fruity flavors. Toasty caramel lightly roasted malts. Lotta flavor with a sticky cloying finish. Totally Solid brew!
