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!

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...

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 (8006) - 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.
