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!

kidmartinek (3507) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Pours bright cloudy pale yellow with copious foam head. Exhibits good bubbling (barbonation) after the pour. Thick tastey head. Excellents scattered lacing. Strong bright, wheat flavor most dominated by refreshing banana. I thught this was going to be a dark because of the bottle, but itís a light, full bodied, full flavored, delicious wheat brew, most enjoyable after mowing the lawn on this hot spring day. The palate has just the right amount of bite andrefreshment. Bright, flavorful finsih. Uncharacteristicly smooth for 7.7%, I thought it was 5%. Prost!

jjuf1853 (1227) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Bottle pours a light golden color with a gigantic foamy white head. Very floral sweet aroma of citrus and wheat. Lots of wheat in the flavor, but also some sweetness with a little bitterness in the aftertaste. Surprisingly light and smooth for 7.7%

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - MAR 17, 2008
Bottle. Huge foamy, fizzy white head that mostly diminished, virtually no lacing, fast rising carbonation, transparent, and a pale yellow hue. The aroma was sweet, bananas, hint of citrus, spicy, clove, and lightly tart. Ditto for the flavor. Mildly tingly mouthfeel and light-medium in body. A most quaffable beer, easy drinking, ABV well masked, well balanced, extremely tasty, worthy of a try, and definitely a beer I would drink again if it comes my way. A beer that would be nice to have on hand a lot of the time. More please!

Boutip (4636) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2008
Bottle: Poured a golden color weizenbock (kinda light of the style) with a huge foamy white head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of banana ester with some cloves and fresh fruits. Taste is also dominated by some nice wheat malt note with loads of fruity, banana and cloves ester. The yeast really works wonderfully in this beer. Full body with loads of lees and great carbonation. I wish I had access to quality stuff like that every day.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 13, 2008
Pours surprisingly pale for a weizenbock, with a nice head that fades fast, A bit thin in the palate with a loose finish, strong notes of bubblegum throughout. A touch sweet, only a little wheaty, lacking complexity and more importantly body. Decent enough. Iíve enjoyed drinking it but itís not that good of a beer.

Otje (677) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2008
Nice weizenbock. Hazy yellow. Aromas of banana, citrus and cookie dough. Tastes very estery, lots of banana, cloves, sweet and doughie. Alcohol is well hidden. Very good weizenbock like their hefeweizen but with an extra kick and a layer of "deepness". A keeper and a favorite, especialy in the summer.

Maverick34 (2159) - New York, USA - MAR 5, 2008
Poured from the bottle with a cloudy hazy darkish golden with a substantial head. Aroma is not overpowering with some fruits, taste is bananaish with some sweetness and caramel, not as overpowering as some weizbocks. Incredibly and dangerously drinkable.

FlacoAlto (3759) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 4, 2008
This is pretty well carbonated as a soft pour still yields a full three-finger thick, frothy, pale tan colored head. The beer is a light gold color and shows a very lightly hazed, straw gold color when held up to the light. The aroma is distinctly full of clove phenolics, even seeming a bit fruity in its clove character. Wheat like grain notes provide a touch of bread aromatics, some light tartness and some cracker-malt notes. Banana esters mix in with the clove notes, but are definitely noticed as well. There are also some plum like notes as well as a touch of apple aromatics.

Well carbonated, yet still creamy like many a good Hefeweizen; this does have a touch more body than your standard Hefe, but so far if I was presented this blind I would be hard pressed to guess that this is something other than a normal Hefeweizen. The strength of this brew shows up in the esters that are noticeable; this is a bit more fruity than your typical strength Hefe with flavors of plum, Macintosh apples and green raisins. This fruitiness is backed by a spicy, phenolic finish reminiscent of the turpenes particular to cloves. As the beer loses some of its zippy carbonation and warms up just a touch it begins to pick up a lightly concentrated banana note in the middle. This has a light tartness to it than helps to accentuate the various fruit components a bit.

The last pour that has some yeast sediment to it, adds a bit more yeasted tartness to this brew, which is a nice added dimension. I really like this take on the Weizenbock; it really is just a slightly amped up version of a well made Hefeweizen with the increased gravity producing more interesting esters and phenolics.

17thfloor (2429) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2008 Pours light straw/orange yellow with a large foamy white head. Aroma of bacon, sweet malted wheat, clove, and citrus. Sweet and sour wheat, soft banana, slightly metallic. Fluffy mouthful with soft but sparkling carbonation. A nice drinking light weizen bock.
