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!

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 17, 2009
Pours a very slightly hazed medium yellow with a tall fluffy white head that has great retention. Aroma is strong banana, yeast, vanilla pudding, lemon, wheat and sweet malts. Flavor is creamy banana laffy taffy, wrapped in a vanilla laffy taffy but not half as sweet as either, a hint of wheat, lemon-lime soda, some fruity esters, spicy yeast, a hint of bitterness on the finish but not much. The palate is creamy smooth while still being slightly acidic. A fairly well put together brew, maybe a bit much on the banana notes for me but it was still refreshing, interesting and sweet.

v8powered (139) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Hazy yellow color with white head. Some banana notes from the wheat but more like a spicy, higher alcohol hefe. Good overall flavor. Reminds me of a wheat belgian without a strong alcohol flavor. Toned down flavor that is enjoyable. Worth a try.

Nightfall (1306) - Hamburg, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2009
0,5lt Bottle from Beer Factory Athens. Hazy golden color with a big white head. Sweet aroma with lots of wheat, banana and citric fruits. Wheaty taste again with lots od banana and citric fruits with a warm alcohol touch.

KnutAlbert (6621) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2009
Bottle in Italy. Wheaty, but with a strong alcohol character. Sourish, not easy to drink. Compared to their classic styled beers, this did not impress me at all.

TheJester (2414) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2009
500 mL bottle. 500 mL bottle. Cloudy orange with a small but sticky white head. Sweet citrus in the aroma, along with the usual wheat and spice. Less banana than some others. Flavour is sweet, with yeast and spice, and some wheat near the end. Alcohol is well hidden. Body is full and creamy, although it thins out near the end. Nicely carbonated. Above average, but not spectacular.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Quite fruity aroma with banana, citrus, and plum. 10 karat pour with a nice fluffy ivory head. Clove, sweet malt, and wheat. Not a bad beer, but probably won’t go after it again.

Poured from 500ml bottle. 51 degrees F. A light weizen bock, hazy straw/yellow color with big white head. Great banana/citrus aroma. Spicy with a nice tangy finish. 7.7% abv not noticeable. Recommended!

JPDIPSO (5450) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 2, 2009
Not you typical weizen bock pour. Lightly hazed golden color with a tall white head. OK, typical hefe pour. Sweet wheat and ester aromas. Hints of yeast and fruit. Not real fresh smelling. Sweet malt and wheat flavors in the front followed by a mix of spice. Some cloves and banana in the finish and linger. Thick, yet a tight zip on the tongue. Not sure of the date of this one, but I’m quite certain this one fresh would be very good. The deeper I get into this one the more I like it. Nice malt base and very drinkable.

Quack-Duck (9088) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 2, 2009
bottle: Hazy brownish yellow, mid-sized head. Fruity nose with banana. Medium- to full-bodied, fruity, malty and yeasty. A bit thin, though.
