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!

Prototypical Weizen appearance, the pale body, the large head, and cloudy consistency were unmistakable. The aroma was also classic banana and clove, and was pretty inviting. The taste was a lot spicier than the Hefeweizen this looked like. The clove notes were much more pronounced and there was also some sourness apparent. Very light in the mouth, which is quite typical of wheat based beers, but it was quite a bit lighter than anticipated considering this is a Weizenbock. Probably the easiest to drink near 8% beer Iíve sampled. Way different than Aventinus or any other examples of this style.

Hank1980 (945) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Bottle. Poured a lightly clouded gold with a huge white head. Aroma of banana, clove, wheat. Itís a little musty as well - not sure what that is. Taste is wheat, banana, yeast, clove - pretty sweet. Mouth is dry and carbonation is lively. Overall, a nice interesting wheat brew.

noompa (130) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2009
50 cl. bottle (2009) in a weizen glass. Pours a hazy golden w/ a mighty robust meringue white head (huge head as befits the style); aroma is sweet banana, wheaty and some oily residue; flavor is more banana, strong wheat and citrus; effervescent mouthfeel, ending crisp, sweet and refreshing. Should have used darker malts. Nowhere as complex and dense as Aventinus, but quite drinkable.

Coltrane (108) - South Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2009
Banana, cloves, wheat, sweetness, tang, yup. All of that. Great example of a weizenbock. Hefeweizen plus alcohol with a bit of a kick. A very nice beer, and quite refreshing.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1122) - FINLAND - APR 27, 2009
Bottle. Hazy yellow with a huge white head. Aroma of banana, yeast and wheat. The flavour is banana, yeast, wheat and malt with notes of alcohol. Nice and refreshing brew, but not as good as Hefe Weissbier from the same brewery.

DiabolikDUB (147) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 13, 2009
Poured from 500ml bottle into Pint glass. Pours a hazy golden color with a slight orange glow. It poured with a huge frothy white head. It has strong aroma of banana and cloves which I expected along with some yeast. It has a spicy flavor which I very much enjoy. Some flavors I picked up on were banana, a slight mango, clove and I think Iím getting some ginger in there as well. Its a light bodied effervescent beer. Overall its extremely approachable for its higher alcohol.

Huge head when poured. The beer has a spicy lemon yeast flavor and is a full-bodied beverage.

Pastor (799) - 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.

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, Iím loving it.
