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!

SoberCajun (111) - Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 12, 2009
A hazy golden color with a luxurious white 3-finger head. Classic aroma of bubblegum/banana/cloves, continuing into the flavor. A great wheat beer with a little extra kick of maltiness which adds some complexity. Very clean palate, almost no aftertaste, and very refreshing.

mixos (154) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - SEP 10, 2009
Hazy yellow-orange color. Head is big and rich. Aroma is malty, fruity (banana,apple orange). Taste is sweet, malty, yeasty, frutiy and some spicy. Sweet finale, nice body. Very nice beer at all.

smcolw (600) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Strong four-finger head. Good, spotty lace on the glass. Very cloudy. The liquid is straw colored. Okay, something must be wrong. I smell creamed corn. I guess there is light wheat in the background. Very unusual nose, not exactly unappealing, but not expected either. A smooth bodied beer--heavy body and light carbonation. The flavor is different from any other beer I’ve ever had and I can’t say that I like it. There are elements of bocks and wheat beers as to be expected. There is a soured sweetness that takes some getting used to. The creamed corn remains and detracts from the flavors. Yet, it is a complex offering. Lots of cream flavors. I can’t recommend it, but I know that it is different enough to seek out to try something very different.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2009
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a big white head. Aroma is strong banana with sweet spiciness. Flavour is wheat, apricot, cloves and other spices as well as a hint of melon. Full bodied. Starts out sweet but finishes quite dry. Not Bad.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Hazy straw yellow with a quickly fading white head. Aroma of fruit, yeast, toasted malt and light spice. I didn’t pick up any banana in this one. Taste of fruit, apricot, alcohol, malt and yeast. Reminds me more of a Belgian ale than a weizen bock. Finishes up very dry.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Pours a lasting read of white head with a hazy, deep straw body. Smells of earth and yeast. Flavor is earth, dough, banana. Pretty big body.

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 (3960) - 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 (2144) - 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.
