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!

Just a perfect brew, served in proper glass ware on tap in all its glory. I can’t think of anything I’d add or change about this beer.

larsga (7117) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2010 Big offwhite head. Hazy paleish yellow body. Strong spicy banana aroma with cloves and mealy wehat notes. Sweet sugary banana and earth taste with mealy candy notes. Fullish body. Mealy fizzy mouthfeel. Dry milky yoghurty mealy aftertaste with floral wheaty notes. Nice, but not great. Like a scaled-up version of the normal weizen without the refreshing aspects. (0.5l bottle, Olympen, Oslo. Rated twice; second score off by 0.1.)

Draft. Hazy dark gold with a nice head and great lacing. Aroma is clove, banana, clove, spice, and bread. Nice full texture but still very drinkable.

hirigalzkar (2761) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2010
Bottle. Pours yellow-orange, hazy, with a small white head. Yeasty aroma, with notes of citrus and spices. Big, long lasting taste with notes of vanilla. Lots of candy banana and clove. Spicy (white pepper?) aftertaste. Refreshing and also very complex. Medium bodied. Smooth. Beautiful!

RichardGretton (4577) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2010
Bottle. Brillantly vibrant cloudy golden beer with a steady fairly strong white head. The aroma is fruity and yeasty, and the flavour is fairly bitter and citric with a strong yeasty finish. Overall a nice drinkable fruity and yeasty bitter beer.

brokensail (15271) - San Leandro, California, USA - JUL 26, 2010
A: The pour is a hazy golden color with a tint of orange and a creamy white head. S: A very nice citrus aroma and perhaps a bit of pineapple. Sweet wheat and malt aromas and the great German yeast gives off some bananas, cloves, and apples. T: The flavor is quite similar to the aroma. Good sweetness and yeast contributions and plenty of fruit (banana, apple, and oranges). There is a light bitterness to this one as well. M: Medium body with a smooth and creamy carbonation. Quite pleasant, indeed. D: I think I still like their regular Hefeweizen a bit better, but this is still a great beer. I might have to pick up a few more bottles.

asheft (2897) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2010
[bottle] Strong sweet malt aroma with some herbs, including coriander, and bubblegum and clove. Murky dark yellow-orange under wispy white and a thick ring. Sweet malt, clove and bubblegum flavour. Excellent Weißbier on steroids. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, sweet finish with a tang of wheat malt sourness.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 19, 2010
Pours murky blonde with a moderate white head. Nose is coriander and bananas, with a touch of yeast...not too far off a good witbier. Flavor contains the above, with a bit of floral hops, bitter citrus, and apples. Finish is fruit and yeast. A solid beer that hides its alcohol very well.

Finhead (1548) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2010
A hazy yellow pour with fluffy, white head. The aroma is a nice mixture of wheat, citrus, cloves, and a hint of banana. The taste somewhat tangy and sweet all at once with lively carbonation. It is full bodied and the finish has slight bitterness which makes me drink even quicker. This beer literally gets better with each sip.
