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!

obguthr (5644) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Banana and lemon bouquet, not very strong. Dingy yellow color, with a huge white head. Very noticeable alcohol, stinging mouthfeel. Similar to a carbonated lemondrop (lemon juice and vodka), but with cloves. Wheat grass finish.

Lubiere (12878) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2009
A hazy golden weizen bock with a super thick and creamy white head. A nice and rich yeasty aroma, with bananas, vanilla fudge, light sulfuric and mineral notes, very pleasant. In mouth, a nice refreshing wb, not too sweet or heavy, with light banana puree, cloves, again, lighter than expected but well balanced. Medium bodied with light hopping in finale.

jcr (2554) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAY 23, 2009
Bottle. Hazy deep gold body with a large, frothy white head that lasts. Aroma is thick with grain with plenty of banana esters and a hint of clove. The alcohol is detectable in the aroma. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. Alcohol warming. Slight tang behind the sweetness. Tastes of sweet bananas with alcohol like bananaís foster. Medium to full body with a velvety texture. Lively carbonation. Very nice.

Mutualaid (142) - Texas, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Pours light straw with a lot of fizzy head which congeals into a smooth, pillowy top. Huge wheat aromas with a hint of citrus hops. Sweet white peach flavor with a bit of grape; hops only detectable by a faint tingle on the tongue. Long, bready finish and a round mouthfeel. Quite good, if a bit one-dimensional; I would have never pegged this one as a Weizenbock.

NachlamSie (3275) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Bottle. Pours a super cloudy orange with a massive, frothy, everlasting white head and visibly active carbonation. Itís really a beautiful sight in the weizen glass. The aroma is spicy and peppery with lots of clove and banana, everything deliciately blanced. The flavor is a little harsher than Iíd expect from Weihenstephan, but not bad. Itís surprisingly hoppy in a husky, vegetal way and a rye flavor is present. The finishes with esters of clove and banana with a metallic twang. This is heartier than the hefeweizen and a little more tart. Pretty good.

blipp (8174) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Bottle. Foamed over a little bit. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Spicy and yeasty aroma, with clove and banana. The flavor has doughy, bready malts, clove, banana, and a bit of an acidic hint. Pretty good, but Iíve had way better weizen bocks.

joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2009
Cloudy orange with a thick foamy head. Aroma has some lactic acid, bananas, and dough. Flavor is full bodied, with some citrus and a crisp finish. Not my favorite beer from this brewer, but still excellent.

DiabolikDUB (147) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 13, 2009
Poured from 500ml bottle into Pint glass. Pours a hazy golden color with a slight orange glow. It poured with a huge frothy white head. It has strong aroma of banana and cloves which I expected along with some yeast. It has a spicy flavor which I very much enjoy. Some flavors I picked up on were banana, a slight mango, clove and I think Iím getting some ginger in there as well. Its a light bodied effervescent beer. Overall its extremely approachable for its higher alcohol.

rajendra82 (1047) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Prototypical Weizen appearance, the pale body, the large head, and cloudy consistency were unmistakable. The aroma was also classic banana and clove, and was pretty inviting. The taste was a lot spicier than the Hefeweizen this looked like. The clove notes were much more pronounced and there was also some sourness apparent. Very light in the mouth, which is quite typical of wheat based beers, but it was quite a bit lighter than anticipated considering this is a Weizenbock. Probably the easiest to drink near 8% beer Iíve sampled. Way different than Aventinus or any other examples of this style.

Hank1980 (966) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Bottle. Poured a lightly clouded gold with a huge white head. Aroma of banana, clove, wheat. Itís a little musty as well - not sure what that is. Taste is wheat, banana, yeast, clove - pretty sweet. Mouth is dry and carbonation is lively. Overall, a nice interesting wheat brew.
