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!

500 mL bottle. Pours a very lightly hazed bright golden with a white head. Clove aroma, banana, with a little grassiness, bubble gum, and wheat. Wheat leads the flavor with bubble gum, cloves, apple, and banana. Again some slight hints of grassiness, now with citrus. Pretty nice.

RB1 (118) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Bottle purchased at Total Wine, Gilbert, AZ. 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. This is as good as wheat beer gets. True brewing art. For it’s style, one of the best beers in the world.

RolkaNation (141) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Bottle poured into weizen glass. Beautiful looking beer, straw yellow, hazy, 2 finger fluffy, creamy head that gets down to a thin layer in about 5 mins. Outstanding nose of intense belgian spice, yeast, esters, banana, and a hint of bubblegum. Creamy on the palate. Amazing taste. Wheat upfront taste with more yeasty spice upfront before ending with an intense dark fruit sweet finish that is gone fairly quickly. Some more banana and clove throughout and slightly boozey. Love this brand, love this beer.

FudgeSociety2 (311) - Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Boy do I like these wheat (aka. weiss) beers. More of a malt presence since it is a weizenBOCK. Fruity, yeasty, forest berry taste. Very nice. Zero trace of the abv. Slighty too sweet.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2011
500ml Bottle. Pale golden and cloudy with a thick white head. Huge blast of clove along with yeast and citrus. Medium bodied and effervescent. Flavor is sweeter than a regular Hefe and here is the difference. Overall, really nice brew. Like a Hefe but stronger and sweeter.

adnielsen (10475) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2011
UPDATED: APR 26, 2014 Bottle @ home, poured into a wine glass, the closest thing that I got to Vitus glass. Very cloudy, yellow-orange appearance with a sizable white head. Spicy, banana, clove, lots of yeast, wheat in the nose that’s just spectacular. Great wheat malty body, citrus fruits, banana, cloves, lots of yeast, slight bock flavor. Yeasty, banana, bock finish. Silky, velvety mouth feel. Simply outstanding! One of my all-time favorite beers.

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.
