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!

Bomber. Bright gold, hazy, unfiltered. Big fluffy white head. Nose is malty, lemony. Taste comes off both bitter and sweet. A bit alcoholic, smooth, spicy. Nice beer.

(500ml bottle from Spec’s on October 11, 2008) You’d think this was a dunkel from the looks of the bottle. Pours a gorgeous orange with a solid, white frothy head and lacing that slides down the glass. Its aroma is of a serious German Weizenbock. Very sour, citric, and yeasty. Smells like a brewery. Smells like fermented wheat! Its taste is of banana, cloves, and a hint of hops. Smooth going down, almost makes you want to pucker. A finely crafted beer.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 500ml. or 1 pint .9oz bottle into a weizen glass. Appearance: It had a golden color, which was lighter than I had expected and a hazy unfiltered body. The head is just off white in color and builds up tall and thick then very slowly fades making slick patchy lacing on the glass. Smell: The aroma had sweet malty wheat notes with yeast and estery fruitiness. Taste/Mouth feel: There are estery flavor notes of banana, apple, golden raison and bubble gum within a mildly sweet and tangy wheat malt. Also there are hints of clove and some mild spicy hops for balance. It has a solid medium body with a palate that is smooth and a touch slick with pleasing carbonation. Notes: Outstanding!!!

Snojerk321 (2975) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Bottle from South Bay Drugs. Pours a hazy golden yellow with an orange hue. The head is a couple fingers of creamy white that takes its time to fade and laces spots. Smells spicy, banana, pepper, coriander and clove. Taste begins with sweet malt followed by the wheat and spice.

bb (6715) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 7, 2008
Draft. Hazy golden-straw colored beer with an off-white head. Wheat and banana aroma. Wheat, malt, banana, spice, yeast flavors. Medium body. Malt/wheat linger with slight citrus, spice, and banana. Nice and easy to drink.

(Bottle on 2008-10-04) Orange. Cloudy. Banana and salty liquorice in nose. Full bodied palate with quite a lot of carbonation. Malts, bitterness, some banana, salty liquorice and sweetness in taste. Sweet and bitter aftertaste.

danielyabu (1132) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - OCT 2, 2008
essa Weizenbock alemã não tem uma aparência tão aprazível. Sua espuma tem aparência inicial pequena, cor branca e reduzida longevidade. Há moderada formação de colarinho e o corpo é turvo, grosso e de tonalidade marrom. O aroma é clássico e restrito: banana e cravo (bem pronunciado), nada mais. O sabor inicial é levemente doce e amargo, apresentando moderada doçura e leve amargor no final, de média duração. No paladar, um corpo médio-cheio, textura cremosa, carbonatação forte e final moderadamente alcoólico. A título de Weizen seria agradável, mas peca ao não apresentar elementos de Bock. Mascara muito bem o teor alcoólico de 7,7%. O final mais forte se aproxima de Bock no paladar.

Big Bottle... Nice weizen. Pours very hazy gold with a large white head. Aroma of cloves, wheat, and sweet malts. Fruity--banana, mostly, and some darker fruits--flavor, with a great sweetness.

One of the best wheat beers I’ve tasted. Pours dark yellow with a nice thick but frothy head. Flavors are of wheat, but no cereal with a balance of banana, apricot, and honey. Really unique and tasty.
