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!

This Weizenbock is a darker, maltier version of Weihenstephaners normal Hefeweizen complete with citrus flavors and an extra alcohol kick. The alcohol does well to balance out the general sweetness of the unfiltered beer and has become a regular purchase for me at the local supermarket. I havent gone back to their standard Hefeweizen ever since buying one of these.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow with a foamy white head. When I bought this for some reason I thought I was getting a dark beer... silly me. And as I’m not much into Weizen beers, I was a bit disappointed. But this is a delicious beer, with a touch of citrus but not tangy and sour, more like a smooth banana/lemon touch. Can’t taste the alcohol at all, and it has a very nice buzz to it. If this truly is the worlds oldest brewery, as it says on the label, I can see why. This rocks.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2008 Bottle. A very lovely weizenbock indeed. Cloudy lemon yellow in color, a thin lacing. Notes of citrus, bananas and spice. Great tasting wheat beer for a 7.7% ABV.

Pour is a cloudy lemonaid lookalike with a gianormus white head. Aroma is a very nice citrus with some clove and vanilla. Flavor is again some vanilla and citrus with a nice breadyness at the end. This is a decent and well made beer and its a bargan at only 3 buck a pop.

Poured a light golden color with nice fluffy white head that lasted a while. I was surprised by the lightness of the color. The aroma was very citrusy. The taste was a flavorful balance of bananas, spice, citrus, and wheat. The mouthfeel was very nice. Despite its 7.7% abv this is an extremely drinkable beer that hides its alcohol well.

Bottle@home, shared with my old man. Apperance: Golden yellow with a generous, firm white head. Looks very inviting! Aroma: Wheat, Yeast, Spices, Banana marshmallow, Hay. Flavor: Wheat, Fruit, Citric notes, Yeast, Spices, Cloves. Palate: Refreshing wth a acidic touch and plenty of carbonation with a solid malt backbone. Wow, this tastes like a Wiehenstephaner Hefe with lots more body. Very drinkable and tasty. Recommended!

From bottle. Yeasty doughy nose, with coriander lemon-orange notes, mild bubblegum, and a chalky bitter carbonic gassy smell. Light sulfur. A bit of pleasant sour bread tang, too. Light sweet fruity character. Pillowy creamy-foamy off-white head that is huge throughout. Incredible lacing. Dull butterscotch amber body that’s cloudy with dregs. Medium-heavy watery body with medium-soft carbonation. Smooth. Starts pretty sweet, with wheat and spun sugar, orange essence and light bubblegum. Mild tangy quality to it, maybe some acid malt. Light hops in the finish, with smooth yeasty banana-orange aftertaste. A bit of warming, but faint. This is a tasty beer and just a bit too heavy to be considered refreshing.

Bottle. Pours a hazy gold color (are all their beers this same color?) with a large and lacy white head. Aroma is wheat, clove, vanilla, and slight coriander. Taste is vanilla, bubblegum, slight lemon and cinnamon/coriander at the end. The beer remains smooth throughout. Surprisingly sweet, but I liked it quite a bit.
