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!

Ughsmash (7203) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2008
Bottled. Poured slightly hazy paler golden with a short, creamy cap of white head. The aroms was just delightful.. toasted banana and spicy pepper on a warm impression upfront.. sweeter aged caramel malts holding it up behind.. balance was excellent! The flavor had warm caramel and banana notes at the core surrounded by black pepper, coriander, and tart citrusy notes.. warm again on the finish and entirely satisfying. Heavier-bodied with creamy carbonation on the palate.. alcohol was present, but well-balanced.. I’d gladly have another.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - SEP 19, 2008
Poured from a 500ml bottle and served in a weizen glass. This beer poured a cloudy golden orange with a decent sized head of soapy, off-white foam. A small amount of lacing was left around the glass. The aroma of the beer included strong bananas, oranges, flaked wheat, and just a touch of fresh cut grass. The flavor was not quite as vibrant as the aroma. It consisted of spicy yeast, ripened bananas, slightly astringent orange peel, hay, and a bit of alcohol. The mouthfeel was full-bodied and had mild carbonation. Not the best example of the style, but still worth a shot considering the price and easy accessibility. Decent.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2008
Pours a hazy yellow color with s thick white head. The aroma is very yeasty, there’s banana esters and bubble-gum, there’s also cloves and a soft candy sweetness. The flavor is very pleasant and balanced, there are bananas, bubble gum, cloves and sweetness reminiscent of soft fruity candies. After a while, I notice some hop presence and mild bitterness in the end. The body is medium to full with a creamy texture and medium to lively carbonation. This is a solid weizenbock, I’d say the best Weihenstephaner I’ve had so far.

hoooraybeer (53) - Westfield, New Jersey, USA - SEP 13, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2008 pours cloudy orange yellow with a fluffy white head. Banana clove and the dry plum bitter. Much more refreshing and light than other weizen bocks. Not nearly the strong plum flavors that you get from Schneidder Aventinus. Great mouth feel - creamy,full, and sparkling. Simple start and very nice spicey finish. Bana na flavors really come out as it warms. Very good

Derek881 (1018) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2009 Sampled poured from the bottle into a pint glass. The beer had a big foamy white head with great retention and decent cling atop a cloudy straw color with slight particles. The aroma was a mix of banana and some other fruits, with barley, and some yeast and grainy hop tones too. A sweet, somewhat fruity taste, with a touch of wheat and bitterness. Pretty wet beer on the palate, somewhat creamy and maybe slightly on the thin side, with good carbonation. A quality beer, not quite exceptional, but definitely enjoyed.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle from Kegs & Barrels in McKinney, TX. Pours a very nice looking cloudy straw yellow with nice lasting white head. Strong aroma of bannana, alcohol, clove, bubblegum. Flavor is semi-sweet,malty and very fruity, some bannana & clove, with nice alcohol spice. Mouthfeel has a soft medium body. Overall, I really like this one!

Only my second Weizenbock and what a superb brew. Very good banana nose with nice unfiltered appearence. The taste is outstanding and does taste like a hyper Hefeweizen. Would definately buy again.

DutchCrow (20) - Alkmaar, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2008
Fresh beer. Hides the high amount of alcohol (for a Weizen) perfectly. Citrus/herb taste, really special. Very light colour. Had a 0.5l bottle in Rapallo, Italy at a nice grand café.

illidurit (2180) - Petaluma, California, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Pours a hazy saffron color into my Franziskaner weizen glass. Big 3 finger head is pure white, not much lacing. Good retention. Aroma is lemon meringue, banana oil, flowers, clove, and a hint of copper. Tastes like an imperialized version of a hefeweizen. Not a lot of dark, chewy, bready malt flavor at all. This beer is focused around banana, lemon, and clove. Also a touch of vanilla. Not bad, but certainly lacking the complexity a darker weizenbock (like Aventinus) would likely provide. Highly carbonated, but not overly so. Medium body with a sticky banana pith finish. Classic Weihenstephaner drinkability.
