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!

From a 1 pt. 0.9 fl oz. bottle no. 5198. It pours a cloudy pale yellow with foam, foam, and more foam. It overflows the glass. The aroma is clearly of yeast, wheat, and spices. The mouthfeel is pretty decent and chewy. The taste is bold , hoppy, and very true to the bock recipe of 1040 AD I suppose. I thought it was excellent for its style.

a cloudy gold appearance under a large frothy white head. banana aroma of a hefe. flavor is also very much like a regular hefe with banana and vanilla notes but with a thicker malt. thick palate as well and creamy. overall, not really all that different from the regular hefe.

16.9 oz Bottle-Cloudy golden color w/a moderate white head-looks more like a Hefe than a Weizen Bock. Sweet, spiced aroma. Flavors of bread dough & spice, some banana, had a slight malt backbone/finish. Tasted like they took their Hefe & threw some malt into it, not like it was malt brewed. Wasn’t dark enough or malty enough to be a true Weizen Bock, made it a little muddled for me. This wasn’t terrible, I’d call it solid & drinkable, but not really true to style. I’d much rather drink their Hefe, that was a much cleaner, crisper brew. If you want a true Weizen Bock, look elsewhere.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a fluffy white fizzy head. Aroma is bread, banana, wheat, spices. Flavor is dough, banana, wheat, spices, yeast, a little fruity. Nice and balanced and very tasty weizenbock. Good stuff.

Color is a yellow gold with a faint haze and very good carbonation producing a nice white head. Aroma is a little sweet with a hint of banana. Taste is creamy and sweet. Starting with a medium body it goes down smooth with a creamy feel in the end. Finish is sweet with flavors of honey and banana, then a mild yeast flavor and a touch of bitterness. After taste is a smooth lingering of the honey and yeast. Overall this is a very good brew, well rounded and full of flavor

500ml bottle. Hazy gold with a big, tight white head. Aroma of yeast, bubble gum and tropical fruits. Grainy mouth feel, with pineapple, cloves, lemon and a decent dry finish. Very good.

Bottle from Sun Devil Liquor as part of a great haul today. Pours a nice honey color, just slightly hazy, with a fine white head which dissipates to a ring around the glass. Smells like lemon and wheat. Very nice bubbly mouthfeel. Tastes like hops, malt, yeast, and water. Very nice.

Aroma reminds me of lemons, clove. and a hint of banana, very fragrant, a little malty in the nose, like a sweet bread. Appearance is cloudy orange with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Although it is cloudy, the brew looks clean. Flavor is very complex hitting many fruity and sweet notes finishing with a citrus and clove zing that lingers, very little hops. The lively carbonation is complimentary to the flavors and this good example of Weizenbock beir.
