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!

Bottle. Pale gold, clear. Creamy, low stable head. Aroma of very intense bananas, slightly malty. Taste thick and smooth, a bit sour at the end, carbonation mid, a little tingling, pleasant. Bitterness non-existent but not necessary. Alcohol well hidden. Aftertaste mostly bananas, a hint of malts, a little bit of herbal hoppy. Altogether a pleasant experience.

Russo (1912) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2015
Hazy golden color with a huge white head that not last longer but keep a nice lacing until the end. Aroma is sweet, citrus hints of wheat, yeast and slightly alcohol and banana notes. Flavor is spicy, hints of banana, burned sugar, wheat and citrus. High carbonation and a medium to full body with a sweet and spicy dry finish.

Bottiglia 0.5l. Schiuma bianca compatta e molto persistente, Chiara e velata. aroma speziato, gusto lieve carbonato,lievito,frumento,lieve frutti gialli. Dolce, di semplice bevuta, alla fine il palato ne chiede un’altra

MarkoNm (1797) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 25, 2015
Pours a hazy darker golden, topped with a big white head. Wheaty aroma with lots of spices. Sweet and wheaty, some banana and bubblegum presence easily notable. Nicely drinkable, doesn’t feel like 7,7%. Very fine.

Pours a very light and cloudy color. However the aroma was muffled, as I got almost no smell at all, which was very strange, and mostly likely just my nose as it’s been stuffy all day. The first sip was a punch of spicy malt that mellowed towards the finish. Part of this was the carbonation but they mixed together so well it was hard to distinguish the two at first. A slight hint of banana as well, which is what makes this one of my favorite german beers. It’s light-medium bodied, with a nice bit of sweetness from the malt. Overall this is one of my favorite German beers, and is one I love showing to my friends who haven’t discovered quality beer yet.

Quart bottle from Whole Foods PM, and I cannot believe it too me over 10 years of ratebeerdom t find this one. We MUST fix this. Pours hazy and highly carbonated golden with frothy white head. Nose is wheaty pale malt, funk, yeast, white pepper. Great nose. Tastes pale malty, bready and somewhat sweet with notes of hocitrus, white pepper, clove, and a sweet palate. Solid.

Bottle 0,5l from Interspar Zagreb. Blond slightly hazy body, white head. Nice aroma of banana, spices, apples, yeast, liqueur. Taste is dry, slightly sour. Disturbing presence of alcohol. Banana, yeast, pale fruits. Full body, medium carbonation.
Not bad, but a bit unbalanced (alcohol).
