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!

marcot (770) - Campomorone, ITALY - JUN 6, 2010
Bevuta in bottiglia al Fondo di Recco (GE). Colore tra il dorato e l’ambrato, schiuma solidissima, sentori tipici da weizen, con più corpo e più alcool. Un buon esemplare di weizenbock

Bottle, 500ml. Pours a deep, beautiful, murky, golden/amber colour with a magnificent, fluffy offwhite crown. Looks amazing, but unusual for a weizenbock, I was expectinh something darker. Aroma is very yeasty and a touch acid, smells very promising. Taste is heavier and more robust than I expected. I was expecting something more weissbier-like. Taste is subtle and complex. Strong alcohol and bitter finish. Probably the best German beer I’ve tried.

Vaiz (4190) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2010
Bottle at home. Hazy yellowish orange pour, thick creamy white head leaving some lacing. Aroma is strong weizen yeast with banana and bubblegum. Flavor is fruity sweet with more banana and wheat, some white sugar and alcohol. Lively carbonation and a creamy texture. A bit like a more powerful version of their hefe-weizen. Nice one.

Pinball (11897) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2010
may25. rating this with my towel on. (international towel day). Cloudy yellow, huge smooth white head. very nice wheaty slighlty tart, flowery and peach+banana fruity aroma. even though fruity also appears quenching , dry and slightly citrussy. a little more sweet malty alc. aroma than what is in an ordinary wheat beer. flavor is wheaty, sweet malty, alcohol, banana in the background, citrussy note from the aroma not there anymore. The stronger alc and malt flavor doesn’t really do any good to the delicate wheat flavor. Perhaps it would be better if You had it very cold. You don’t really notice the 7.7% abv that much. I would’ve put it at 5.6 to 6.6 or so.

Nik925 (786) - USA - MAY 24, 2010
Very low aroma. Flavor is pretty simple and DOMINATED by the banana/clove from the yeast. A well made beer, and maybe better than my score as a whole, but the appearance,lack of flavor diversity, and muted aroma keep the score pretty low.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2010 Awful...score 96...this can’t be, I would rather lick a pencil sharpener or brush my teeth after eating grapefriut...If you like Hoegaarden and the rest of cinnamony heavy metallic taste beers, this one is for you...

monkeychugg55 (1019) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2010
Pours a solid yellow-orange with a huge, frothy, white head. The aroma is very strong banana and clove, with a bit of bready malt. The flavor is similar, with a hint of citrus zest on the finsh. Thick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Nice beer.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2010
500ml Bottle: Aroma of yeast, slight wheat, slight spice, and a hint of citrus. Poured yellow/gold in color with a large, creamy, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of small, medium, large, and huge-sized particles throughout. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of wheat, slight spice, slight citrus, and slight banana. Medium body. Slick, then lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Wheat and slight spice finish is dry.

BrewingFan (251) - Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2010 Very nice yeasty aroma of banana and hay, pours pale cloudy yellow. High carbonation, brings a very nice medium-full body to the tongue, creamy, almost sticky texture, touch of bitterness in the finish. Spicy, possibly from hops, alcohol present on the palate, leads to a bit of warming.

Much much lighter colored than expected... golden hazy big head fluffy... tons of spicy banana aroma... odd malty flavor up front, somewhat thinner than expected, lively at the end, but not all the way through... good flavor esp in the finish, spicy, not as much banana as expected... medium bodied...
