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!

Bottle. Hazy golden yellow pour with thick yellow head. Aroma bread, banana, spicy notes, and dough. Fairly sweet with a good balance of sourness and plenty of CO2 to give it a lively mouth feel.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 18, 2010
Bottled 50cl. Surprisingly pale appearance. Creamy palate. Definitely a flawless beer. Probably better in summer. Not my kind of style though.

greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 13, 2010
Pours cloudy gold with a dense white head which fades away to a thin wisp. Aroma is beautiful - pears, banana, cloves, nutmeg, vanilla, and a bunch of other complex notes I can’t quite make out. The beer is full and prickly with high carbonation in the mouth. Clove and banana meld well with fresh baked bread and candied nuts. A very good beer. I’d rate it more highly still, but for the fact that it’s a little disappointingly like an overgrown hefeweizen.

rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 13, 2010
Pours hazy golden with huge, though quickly disappearing head, leaving a thick layer of lace; aroma of wheat, slightly yeasty banana, citrus, some spices and bready notes; thin to medium body with very low carbonation; bready flavor of wheat, yeast and banana; slightly citrus and some spices, even herbal notes in the finish.

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2010
500 ml bottle pours a hazy, light golden body with a giant fluffy white head. Aroma of wheat, cloves, citrus spice and a bit of banana. Taste is multi-layered: Bready, yeast, wheat and cloves. Finishes with some pear, slight honey sweetness, bit of alcohol and a mild, short bitterness. Medium carbonation, but has a smooth, soft body. Much more flavor and body than belies the hazy, golden pour!!

zakkbironia (112) - Athens, GREECE - JAN 9, 2010
When I bought this one I had great expectations... But eventually it was too mediocre. Dark brown color with thick light brown foam. Bitter earthy taste but quite easy going for a bockbeer. As I said before I expected a lot more so I wouldn’t recommend it. It’s just my opinion though...
