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!

Hazy yellowish orange with huge soapy creamy head. Damn this head won’t diminish. Aroma of banana and spices, Flavour is sweet of fruits, mostly banana, some very mild bitter and sourness with citrus. It’s a nice beer, but weird, I wouldn’t know when it is a appropriate moment to drink this again.

MoritzF (9156) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2010
(bottle) Hazy, light-golden colour with a giant and rocky white foam. Sweet grainy cereal-like malty and yeasty aroma with citrus and light notes of banana, also hints of cloves and vanilla are detectable. Moderately sweet flavour with a touch of acidity, medium bodied with a mellow, well-carbonated mouthfeel. Yeasty, grainy and wheaty taste with citrus, banana and mild clovy spices; sweet and sour-fruity, also quite lasting finish with rounded and not too extreme spicy notes; The alcohol is well-embedded. Aromatic and pleasant to drink, thus pretty deceptive Weizenbock. 24.IX.07

Who reads this anyway? Just try the beer. It’s from Weihensephaner, so more than likely it tastes decent. This one is good. The alcohol goes straight to you. Pours a hazy gold, has a pretty light body, but a wonderful balance of whatever’s inside (I have no idea). Very good brew.

heavy (2405) - Split, CROATIA - MAR 25, 2010
06/03 0.5 l bottle at brewery’s outlet in Berlin. It poured hazy dirty orange body with medium sized ivory head. Very nice orange and banana aroma, along with caramel and some brown sugar. Flavor doesn’t fail, it’s great yeasty banana, orange, vanilla and caramel, slightly sweet with only a touch of alcohol being felt. Full in body, cloying brew with sticky mouthfeel. Long, very fine malty sweetish finish. Fantastic beer, best thing I had in a while!

NPRugby11 (219) - New York, USA - MAR 24, 2010
Pours out a light hazy orange/yellow with the massive white pillowy head typical of weizens, the flavor is of clove with a hint of banana, not quite as bold as the hefeweizen. Very smooth, another winner from the world’s oldest brewery.

17 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with noticeable sediment, and a big fizzy frothy head tinged slightly yellow. Aroma of spices, clove, banana, yeast, champagne like dryness, bubblegum. Taste is enjoyable, full bodied, smooth mouth feel, nice carbonation and yeast leaves your throat feeling tingly. The fruitiness of the aroma seems to be mediated by the spices once tasting it, with bread and dryness on the finish. Almost seems "belgian styled." It is quite good.

Very very good stuff...tastes like a slightly spicy, slightly heavier good-quality hefeweizen; the extra malt and alcohol is subtle and only enhances the final product

Bottle from the Wine Society in Nashua N.H. Pours a honey gold color with a fluffy white head. Aroma is banana, clove and wheat. Fairly full bodied with active carbonation on the tongue. Flavor is wheat with the usual banana highlights and hints of clove spice. Didn’t pick up on any of the cheap bubblegum flavor in some beers of this style. Alcohol is completely hidden. Very enjoyable brew and very reasonably priced.
