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!

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2009
Pours a hazy golden orange with hints of dark ripe banana and cloudy golden yellow hues when held to a light source and a 2 finger frothy white head that slowly fizzles into a thin cap. Nice spicy clove aroma with a very prominent citrus peel presence. Hints of orange, lemon and grapefruit as well as a very nice ripe banana scent. Smells slightly tart. Awesome! Extremely well-balance beer thatís on the fuller side of medium body. A perfect amalgam of spicy clove, sweet citrus fruit, corriander and ripe banana notes. The spicy cloves are pretty prominent up front followed by a a perfect blend of lemon peel, orange peel, ripe banana and subtle hops. There is also a very nice slight tartness in the dry finish. This is a complex beer that is extremely drinkable and refreshing. Highly recommended!

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 24, 2009
Draft. Poured a hazy golden color with a white head. Nice aroma profile that included the likes of banana bread, yeasty bread dough, and a bit of clove. Medium bodied with a bit of citrus tartness on the tongue. I tasted banana, distinct clove, and lemon zest. There was also a light bacon note. Tasty stuff.

satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2009
aroma is eggy banana and not too different from many regular strength weizens. appearance is hazy but quite light colored yellow. flavor is big sharp carb and distinct and crisp wheat with little in the way of spice or esters. id prefer a bit more of a sipper in this style, but in its defense this is very drinkable for the ABV.

not too dark of a pour, but one that i felt deserved a lot of head. definite banana smell on the nose. clean finish.

SoberCajun (111) - Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 12, 2009
A hazy golden color with a luxurious white 3-finger head. Classic aroma of bubblegum/banana/cloves, continuing into the flavor. A great wheat beer with a little extra kick of maltiness which adds some complexity. Very clean palate, almost no aftertaste, and very refreshing.

mixos (154) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - SEP 10, 2009
Hazy yellow-orange color. Head is big and rich. Aroma is malty, fruity (banana,apple orange). Taste is sweet, malty, yeasty, frutiy and some spicy. Sweet finale, nice body. Very nice beer at all.
