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!

Kavu (2818) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 10, 2010
Pours hazy orange with a rather light head. Aroma is wheaty with lots of banana. Flavor has much more banana and sweetness than I anticipated. Tastes quite a lot like sahti, which I don’t really like either. The rather low carbonation doesn’t help this case. A disappointment.

DerWeg (1551) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2010
What an interesting beer, very dense texture and look. Dirty blonde and very cloudy with a copious head of white foam, aroma showing bright clove and fruit, fruit, fruit. Taste bananas and sun-ripe pear, and a bit of zingy citrus, cloves, Bubblegum. Cloves. There must be hops or the sweetness and body would be overwhelming, and the balance is actually fantastic. A real treat. I should mention the sediment was really glued to the bottom, suggesting a ’mature’ bottle was found & it did not hurt this beer.

This was fantastic, drank direct from bottle and will have again in a proper glass. Perfect balance of standard weiss characteristics (banana, clove, bubblegum notes) and a light malt aftertaste. Recommended.

cgmees (33) - Texas, USA - APR 3, 2010
500 ML bottle. Hazy yellowish orange with huge soapy creamy head. Head fairly thick, that slowly diminishes to a bubbly white color over the cloudy orange color of the beer. Flavor comes across with a strong banana with a silky but crisp soft effervescence. Finished with more of a bitter tang then I expected with a grainy and slightly sour-fruity taste. Aromatic an nice to drink. Good Weizenbock

Bierkrug (2132) - - APR 2, 2010
UPDATED: APR 3, 2010 500 ML bottle in Germany. Cloudy orange off color. Head of off white color was gone quickly. Armoa was of citrus, cloves and banana. Creamy carby feel with a citrus and stronge alcohol taste at first that wears off after the beers warms and you adjust to the taste. A good example of a orange color WB. Good stuff.

Superior beer. Cloudy gold w/ thick lasting head; aroma is fruity and soft of bananas with a malt note; flavor is banana with some tang even a note of licorice; feels silky yet crisp with soft effervescence; finishes somewhat dry with a bitter tang of licorice and note of bananas.

dEnk (4193) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2010
Hazy yellowish orange with huge soapy creamy head. Damn this head won’t diminish. Aroma of banana and spices, Flavour is sweet of fruits, mostly banana, some very mild bitter and sourness with citrus. It’s a nice beer, but weird, I wouldn’t know when it is a appropriate moment to drink this again.

MoritzF (8676) - GERMANY - MAR 31, 2010
(bottle) Hazy, light-golden colour with a giant and rocky white foam. Sweet grainy cereal-like malty and yeasty aroma with citrus and light notes of banana, also hints of cloves and vanilla are detectable. Moderately sweet flavour with a touch of acidity, medium bodied with a mellow, well-carbonated mouthfeel. Yeasty, grainy and wheaty taste with citrus, banana and mild clovy spices; sweet and sour-fruity, also quite lasting finish with rounded and not too extreme spicy notes; The alcohol is well-embedded. Aromatic and pleasant to drink, thus pretty deceptive Weizenbock. 24.IX.07
