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!

GregClow (2976) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2008
Bottle. Cloudy golden colour with a big white head. Aroma is big and warm, with banana and yeast and a nice hint of lemon. Full mouthfeel. Flavour of a really solid weiss on steroids - everything tastes great, and there’s more of it. Finish is dry and warm, with some herbal hops and a bit of alcohol. Another Weihenstephan winner.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 26, 2008
Golden and hazy with a large head. Banana ester aroma that could be more asertive. Flavour was quite like a hefe, fruity esters and a little spice, but with a restrained dryness and a stong malt character. Medium body. Pretty good.

Dejlig øl til min Wok kylling! Syrlig og sød på samme tid. Lys gylden med flot skum.

Tmoney99 (11910) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Bottle from Root Cellar. Poured cloudy yellow color with a large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate banana, citrus & spice aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy yeasty banana sweet flavor with a medium sweet and small alcohol finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew more like a Hefe.
