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!

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Cloudy straw yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is banana, clove, bubblegum and other things of a yeasty nature. Taste is delicious wheat and yeast but not overly spicy. Hints of ripe sweet fruit like peach and pear. Very rich body with juicy malt and a smooth finish.

Butters (3940) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Hazy yellow pour withquickly fading offwhite ring of head. Aroma of sweet wheat and a very bready yeast, but not quite belgian, more like day old bread. Tastes of alcohol esters, rose petals, wheat, and a hint of banana, but hardly noticable. A distinct peppery spice on the finish. Not bad, but not my favorite from these guys.

Dorqui (2125) - Brescia, ITALY - AUG 21, 2009
Bottled. Creamy, voluminous and adherent head, optimal duration. Orange clearly color, much hazy and veiled with optimal and fine fizzy aspect. Intense and alcoholic aroma, with notes of orange, banana, stum, liqueur. Much fraught taste and with strong alcoholic impact. Persistent and bitter on the end.

NJJereme (375) - Saint Petersburg, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Bottle. Pours an opaque gold color w/ a nice frothy white head. Aroma of clove on pour and heavy flavor of clove once imbibed. Medium bodied. Has a bit of a bitter finish. Overall a very nice brew.

highlandlad (1434) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2009
The sort of effortless quality that a brewer can toss off after several centuries of practice. A great-looking beer - cloudy lemon colour with a huge wash of foam. The striking aroma of dusty wheatsacks induced a Proustian scent memory of summer childhoods spent on a friend’s farm. Also mashed banana and clove. Lovely creamy body. Very well integrated for a 7.7% abv bock - would never have guessed it was that strong. Sticky banana and wheat malt with an acidic finish. Quenching and moreish. (500ml bottle from Leura Cellars. BB 20/9/09)

FCBF 09. What a nice treat at the brew fest to find a weizen bock! Hazy, orange, very nice looking. Banana/clove, big yeast component. Very enjoyable.

crajun (1047) - , Texas, USA - AUG 16, 2009
VERY nice.. citrus, spicy aroma and there is a lingering of black pepper. Creamy texture and smooth alcohol was smooth even ough 7.7% want more, but not sure where I found this - trip to Houston??

Enjoyed with my mates from the Barossa Brewers Club this beer pours mit-hefe and has the banana, clove aroma of the hefe-weisen but its not as pronounced. The palate is chewy and rich and the higher alcohol gives the beer a juiciness. Very nice beer!

Radegast: humpen: Massive beer poured into a massive dimpled mug! Slightly hazy bright orange/ coppper pour leavin 2 fingers of white, dry head. The nose is complex, bananas for sure, yeasts and sugars, som bitter notes as well. The taste is equally complex: the banana tones up front, giving way to spice, through cloves maybe pepper... gives the sweet balance. The finish is a mix of the sweet/ spice with a slight touch of alcohol. Great brew.
