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!

Cloudy yellow orange with a nice thick fluffy white head and some lacing. Smell is funky and appealing lemon, yeast, and more funk. Flavor is yeasty and funky yet is sweet and somewhat balanced. A medium body and decent mouthfeel - a hint watery . Still not 100% used to the flavor but it seems balanced and decent overall.

Bottled. Pours golden honey with a white head. Aroma is spiced heavy, some malt and breads. Flavor is wheat, malt, spices, yeast, and bread. Possibly some banana working its way in. Body is perfect for the style.

JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2008
Bottle. Pours cloudy gold with a big white, large bubbled head. Aroma is banana, bit of citrus zest, hint of clove. Taste is sweet and fruity - banana and a bit of ripe apple and pear, and a spicy alcohol note that complements the yeast and clove notes on a lingering, slightly syrupy, bittersweet finish. Mouthfeel is full bodied, with a crisp carbonation.

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 10, 2008
Pours a much lighter, cloudy gold in color than I was expecting. I was expecting something more along the lines of a Korbinian. This is more like a amped up Hefe. Huge, pillowy head on the pour. Plenty of the banana and clove in the nose and flavor. Some hops show up in the taste to help out. Decent beer, but it’s a Hefe!

SlamDunkel (2) - , New York, USA - JUL 6, 2008 does not count
A floral, grassy aroma and some similarities to a weiss. A beautiful, golden color with above normal carbonation and a bountiful head. This was suprisingly easy to drink, with plenty of fruit (apple, banana) and spice (cloves). A nice finish with a strong alcohol backbone that dimmed with consecutive sips. Reminded me slightly of the Kristal-Weizen style with a heavier alcohol taste.

Found at State Line Liquor. A great example of the style, this draws you in with a sweet wheat honey aroma. Mild chocolate brown with initially a large white head, that quickly dissipitates. Medium mouthfeel, and not very complex. But very drinkable.
