Our light-coloured, spicy single-bock, “Vitus” is saturated with fine yeast and a creamy foam. It is a specialty with a round character based on the extra long storage time. The fruity smell of dried apricots joins aromas of citrus, cloves and hints of banana. Full-bodied and sparkling with an effervescent mouthfeel. Thus, the Vitus does not taste like a typical Bock beer but more like a noble, fruity wheat beer. Perfect with red meat, strong cheese and also able to guide desserts. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

DuffMan (9611) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 10, 2011
Bottle. Hazy bright lemony yellow with a huge whipped meringue on top. Aroma fills the room with banana, clove spice, and bubblegum. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, featuring flavours of banana, bubblegum, sweet spices, and with hints of vanilla cookie, marzipan, and wheaty esters. Not even a hint of the ABV. This was so good!

Cloudy amber with a pretty nice sized head. No lacing and the head fades down to a nice layer of creamy bubbles. Big banana, clove, bubble gum, and yeast smell - and alcohol. Nice banana cream pie smell. Tastes are the same with an alcohol back end. Liking chewing Hubba Bubba and a banana. A little numbing. Nice creamy mouthfeel with a big alcohol warmth. Nice beer.

Koelschtrinker (17738) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 3, 2011
Milder Antrunk, fruchtig, deutlich aber nicht übertrieben hefig. Ab dem Mittelteil malziger, dann wieder fruchtiger. Zum Ende erneut malzig weich, hier bockartiger, etwas dunkler, leicht cremig. Gut aufeinander abgestimmt, zum Ende auch etwas herb. Sehr süffig!

Just awesome. I thought this was going to be one of the weakest from this brewery and was a punch! nice weizen taste and features. NOt annoying in taste although strong in alcohol. Excellent head and shape.

Defreni (3006) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2011
Flaske: Orangegul uklar øl med et stort skumhoved. Klassisk hefe weiss i udseende. Duften er igen tydelig weiss med en god del banan fra gæren og tydelig hvede. Smagen er lidt mindre banan præget med et stort bid fra alkoholen. Fin fin øl.

Pours a cloudy golden with sizable white head. Spice, wheat and fruit on the nose. A flavorful, balanced spicy wheat beer with a slight bitter finish. Prost!

Thanks Pacond for joining me in my ticking quest and purchasing a fantastic bottle of a fantastic beer. Really light on the spices and booze, really heavy on the banana esters and wheat malt sweetness. Owns.

Brandman (2852) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 21, 2011
Golden hazy body, white head. Aroma of alcoholic banana and some wheaty bread. Aroma is big, but the flavour does not keep up to it. Still one of my all time favourites.

Draft at Makke. Yes, in Italy. Cloudy variegated gold color, solid white head. Aroma of bubblegum squared! Taste is sour grapefruit, lemon. Nice.
