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!

Pastor (797) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - APR 19, 2009
found this strange cult following assembled in from of the local beer store waiting for this mysterious brew to appear so I had to try it. Bottle poured into the proper Weihenstephaner glass produced a finger worth of white head that seems to last. The body of the brew was a hazy straw color yellow. Aromas of the typical German Weizen yeast are going threw my head Bananas, bubble gum and clove. The flavors are the same but with a touch of pepper in there as well as a slight hop bitter. There is a medium to full feel in my mouth with this brew with ample carbonation. A great Weizenbock another brew I am sure I will be seeing again this summer. Extremely easy to drink and the almost 8% alcohol is nowhere to be found.

illkarate (115) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2009
0.5 liter, bottle. Hazy golden color, pours with a massive white head. Flavors of cloves, bananas, lemon grass, dough. I catch hints of Belgian style triples in this beer - might be the high alcohol content? Regardless, this is a great brew and for $2.99 locally, I’m loving it.

Indra (2625) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - APR 16, 2009
UPDATED: APR 23, 2009 500ml bottle. Doughy, spicy yeast greets the nose, with generous amounts of clove and banana, as well as floral sweetness, licorice, lemon, golden raisin, bready, honeyish malts and wheat. Hazed golden color with a lasting, uneven, off-white head. Flavor is mildly tart, sweet and spicy, with a strongly malty presence throughout, the yeast making itself known as well in large degree, and touches of peppery bitterness and banana at the end to wrap it all up. Effervescence is mild but plentiful on the smooth palate, body is medium-full. Enjoyable, nicely balanced and full of flavor.

vyvvy (4025) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 10, 2009
Pours dull hazy yellow / gold with a large dense snow white head. The aroma has lots of fresh esters, cream, ton of wheat, peppery kick and some vanilla. The body starts medium / full and smooth then there is a lot of semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor begins with the traits from the aroma with a touch of sweetness and more spice. The finish gets drier and peppery and is fairly crisp. Another great beer from an amazingly solid brewery.

Avengedpoet (326) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 9, 2009
Thanks to rustychiles for picking me up a bottle of this. Pours a super-hazy pils yellow with a humongous whipped-cream consistency head. Aroma is of wheat, lager, malty munich, and some minor banana. Taste is pretty much in the same place - a very clean and refreshing wheat and munich taste with extremely minor banana undertones. Weihenstephan never ceases to amaze me. A very solid beer.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - APR 9, 2009
Bottle from Table & Vine in MA. Pours dark gold with a huge white head. Aroma is strong of banana, clove, wheat, peach and yeast. Palate is crisp, with a medium-long finish. Flavors are a really nice blend of fruit, wheat and Belgian yeast. Great flavor characteristics washed down easily with pearly effervescence. Great beer!

puboflyons (2169) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - APR 8, 2009
From a 1 pt. 0.9 fl oz. bottle no. 5198. It pours a cloudy pale yellow with foam, foam, and more foam. It overflows the glass. The aroma is clearly of yeast, wheat, and spices. The mouthfeel is pretty decent and chewy. The taste is bold , hoppy, and very true to the bock recipe of 1040 AD I suppose. I thought it was excellent for its style.

a cloudy gold appearance under a large frothy white head. banana aroma of a hefe. flavor is also very much like a regular hefe with banana and vanilla notes but with a thicker malt. thick palate as well and creamy. overall, not really all that different from the regular hefe.
