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!

A nice Weizen bock. However, this is a bit straight-forward compared to i.e. Aventinus.

egajdzis (5312) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2008
Poured a lightly hazy golden color with a medium sized white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of bananas, some clove, citrus fruits, toast, and a bit of toffee as well. Taste was more banana and clove up front, lemony wheat, light honey, some more toffee, and a bit of alcohol in the finish. Fizzy mouthfeel.

TomDecapolis (4473) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 22, 2008
Thanks to weeare138. Pours a hazy golden orange with a smaller bubbly white head. Aroma banana, cloves, sweet wheat notes and some citrus notes. Flavor of the same banana, clove and citrus notes. Also getting a decent amount of malty sweet notes. Some cereal grains as well.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 19, 2008
Cloudy darker golden pour. Medium fizzy white head that leaves some lacing. Nice aromas of citrus, spice, banana and yeast. Wheat, caramel, banana, and a hint of citrus in the flavor. Surprisingly smooth and creamy in the mouth. I thought it should be darker, but still a great all around wheat beer.

mattmc1973 (477) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2008
16.9 oz bottle, poured an light orange/golden color with a small dissipating head. Aroma was nice, hint of apple, citrus, and spice. Taste is sweet, citrusy, and a bit tart apple. Medium bodied and smooth, slightly creamy, alcohol is evident but not overpowering. A good refreshing beer!

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - APR 16, 2008
(500 ml bottle from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/massachusetts/w target=blank>Julio’s Liquors) Pours cloudy pale yellow with some grayish tint. Tall off-white head. Actually looks more like a hefeweizen than a weizen bock. Aroma of banana, bubblegum and citrus. Mouthfeel smooth and medium-full. Flavor is good with quite a bit going on - notes of booze, citrus, wheat, caramel, banana and pepper. The booziness assured me it was not just a regular hefe! Not the richest weizen bock but still quite good.

auerbrau (3166) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - APR 14, 2008
On tap at Zeno’s Pub - State College, PA. Light fruit aroma. Mixed berry and passionfruit? A nip of bubblegum blows in. Pours a heavily clouded nectarine flesh. Soapy, lacing white bubbles above. Flavor bubbles some more light, indistinct fruit character. Subdued apple, rainier cherry and pecan pie syrup. Alcohol comes forth with bread-like yeast notes. Rather plain. Sugars are clean, too clean. Malt body really isn’t interesting enough. Pale tasting. A touch sweet and sticky. Alcohols are mildly complex (in apple), but maybe a bit too forward for 7.7% and this much sugar. Hops? Meh.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2008
Cloudy golden colored brew. Fruity aroma, banana. Wheaty, sweet, spicy flavor. Some banana. Nice.

bhensonb (10951) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 11, 2008
Bottle. Aromas of banana and wheat. Hazy golden color with a multi-finger head. Seems medium bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is banana, wheat and a touch of clove. Very pleasant; fits the hefe style. The extra bock ABV does not really interfere, though the heat becomes noticeable in the finish.

Beerly There (20) - Oregon, USA - APR 10, 2008
Bottled. Cloudy, straw colored. Huge, frothy white head as is typical for this style. Sweet aroma with prominent esters. Classic banana-like taste from said esters, mildly spicy with clove-like phenols. Über-classic example for a hefe-weizen (I don’t get a lot of bock from it as it is rather pale) A few notches below the best example of this style, i.e. Schneider Aventinus. Rather pleasant.
