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!

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...

kopher (593) - New York, USA - DEC 28, 2009
strong banana, brown sugar, alcohol aroma, bananas foster! also lots of yeast and some spicy citrus. cloudy yellow straw, thick frothy eggshell head. nice sweet mild flavor, backed by a bit of citrus and cloves, though just a bit watery. body’s also slightly thin, though nicely textured, almost crunchy, with a nice sweet spicy finish.

phaleslu (7546) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle from Wine and Cheese Place in Clayton. Pours hazy yellow-gold with a big rocky white head that leaves some lacing behind. Aroma of banana, clove, wheat, yeast, floral notes, and coriander- not unlike a traditional German hefewezen on the nose. Banana also leads the flavor, with wheat and yeast, as well as spices and herbal notes. Medium bodied, with active carbonation. Wheaty mouthfeel. Nice balance, good beer.

mastabass666 (277) - California, USA - DEC 27, 2009
Pours cloudy gold with a big frothy head. Aroma-pear, banana, clove, lemon, bread. Taste-much like the aroma with pears being the most forward then cloves and sugar. Sweet, short and fruity finish. Really great.

grikmok (132) - Little Rock, Arkansas, USA - DEC 27, 2009
Poured into a flute with a medium yellowy head. Aromas of malts and chocolate were prominent. The taste was yeasty at first and ended with malty aftertaste. I enjoyed it very much.

Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a large fluffy white head. Nice big banana and wheat with a nice musky yeast note that shows up as it warms. Simple but clean. Medium bodied, light banana and wheat. Finishes with a bit of warming alcohol and a touch of banana.
