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!

gunnarolis (33) - Reykjavík, ICELAND - JAN 14, 2011
Pours a cloudy yellowish, golden colour with frothy head that fell quickly. Aroma is banana, cloves and yeast/bread. The beer is very lively on the tounge, well carbonated and you can feel the alcohol a tad. Still a very refreshing beer, very spicy and very refreshing. Could sneak up on you at 7.7%. Beautifly balanced

Stew41 (1909) - Phuket, THAILAND - JAN 12, 2011
Very light in colour for the style, more like a Belgian golden ale. Big fizzy head and quite fizzy body right through the palate. Not particularly intense in terms of flavour, rather quite austere. Cloves and spices are nice. Doesn’t blow me away and I expected better.

This poured a cloudy yellow color with a large white head. Aroma was of lots of spices, mainly clove and some citrusy notes too. Flavor was very spicey and yeasty with notes of orange peel/citrus and aa good bit of banana too. Good offering for the style.

A-pours a cloudy straw yellow with a creamy white head leaving a decent lace on the glass. S-the nose has a fair bit of fruit yeast with some light notes of spice to it. a fair bit of pear, green apple, lemon, hints of banana. there is some light toasted bread with hints of yeasty spice in the back. T-the taste isn’t quite as full as the nose. the fruitiness is still there, light caramel malt and some toasted bread up front, the banana, pear, and lemon come in behind with just a touch of white peppery spice in the back. M-good body, medium chewy body with a slick crisp finish and assertive carbonation. D-this is very tasty, the flavor is slightly watered down compared to the nose but still extremely solid. great flavors working well together with a touch of alcohol in the finish. I like it a lot!

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Hazy golden amber with a robust white head. Tons of vanilla wheat malt in the nose with huge banana clove notes and a yummy wheaty caramel presence. The flavor holds more sweet wheat malt with bread, caramel, banana, and clove. Medium to full mouthfeel with supple carbonation.
