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!

Draught@Julians, Providence, RI. Not a huge fan of weizenbocks at the moment, this is a pale one too. Estery banana, and alcohol notes. Raw alcohol, and some touches of caramel.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 27, 2009
Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma of wheat, banana, citrus and yeast spiciness. The flavour is banana bread, citrus and spice. Superbly balanced, its medium bodied and good carbonation. A refreshing, enjoyable bock.

Gr0ve (2156) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2009
500 ml bottle. Whitish golden. Strong haze. Medium-sized white head. Spicy aroma with cloves and a little banana. Rich malty aroma with some caramel. High carbonation level. Hints of smoke. Very nice weissbier flavours, but there is a lot more body and a lot more flavour. Very rich. One must love wheat to like this beer, but I find it nicely balanced and flavourful. It leans towards being a little too sweet though. Could perhaps used a little more hops to make it less cloying. Overall a really nice weizenbock.

holdenn (2083) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2009
Pint bottle from Sams. Pours a hazed orange yellow with a huge off white head. Strong yeast/lemon/wheat/banana aromas that are sweet with a slight earthiness in the background. Creamy body and highly carbonated. More of the banana yeast wheat flavors with somewhat dirty earthy and spicy finish. Decent weizenbock..

Indutiomarus (114) - Idar-Oberstein, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2009
Great head, aroma and appearance. Perhaps a touch sweet, but great body and mouth feel. A very light Weizenbock, but it is excellent.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2009
Bottle at tasting at work. Alround rating: The wheat is quite big and in your face, sweeter honey alcohol character(what i expect from a mead, pepperyness in the finish. Big for the sake of being big it seems, the hefe is the superiour.

beerlady (556) - lucerne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 8, 2009
a yellow-golden hazy beer with a slightly offwhite head smooth carbonation smells yeasty, spicy and fruity, som alcohol ( seems a little bit harsh at the beginning) tasts yeasty, spicy, and like fruitpunch aftertaste is spicy, fruity, bittersweet and warming alcohol ( pperhaps a little bit harsh)

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - JUN 1, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2009 Spicy nose, cloves, baking spices, banana bread. Almost ripe peach enters with the malt balanced by wheat tang. A hefe on growth hormones. Not that it feels manipulated in a nefarious way. The "bock," part here means a loss of body and turbidity that adds a very Champagne like structure and roundness. Tasty. Drinkable. 89

cheap (4208) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2009
From a bomber sized bottle, pictured here. Aroma is refreshing and volatile at the same time. Slightly lighter than other hazy weizen bocks Ive had. First taste indicates lots of sparkling carbonation, welcomed for a high alky beer. Plenty of hefe here, banana, spices and the like. All laced with a wealthy amount of alky content. Finish is just a tad medicinal in the alky department. One of the lighter weizen bocks Ive had as far as personality goes.

jvmiller (558) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAY 29, 2009
Light colored, frothy. Musty, clove, yeasty, slight alcohol on the nose. Quite fruity, almost a bit sour, slight spices and banana, although fruit is more dominant. This ones on the lighter, crisper, fruitier side of the weizenbocks ive had. Only detractions is their is a bit of a bland-salty aftertaste.
