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!

Sweet aromas. Banana, bread, spritzy yeasty goodness. Cloudy with huge white head that stays forever. Nice lacing. Taste compliments aroma in each and every way. Great weizenbock.

VDuquerroux (577) - Airvault, FRANCE - APR 7, 2015
Bottle, 50cL. Home. A bubbly pale yellow opaque beer with a big creamy white head ; great retention. Aroma of banana, citrus, cereal, spices, alcohol, biscuit. Medium to heavy sweet, light herbal bitter ; ephemeral refreshing breeze ; warming background. Full body, smooth thin silky texture, average carbonation, sweet warming background. Overall, pleasant weizenbock ; great aroma ; too sweet ; thin texture.

Golden colour with small but compact head. Aroma of dark fruits, bananas, citrus and some hebs. Taste of hops, dark fruits and bananas which prevails in aftertaste. Very drinkable beer.

Drjohnrock (545) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2015
Poured from 1 pint, 9 ounce bottle purchased at Market District Giant Eagle in Columbus, Ohio, tasted on March 12, 2015. Cloudy yellow hue, banana/clove aroma, banana/spice/wheat flavor with some depth. Not exactly my thing--it seems to have more hefeweizen attributes than I would have expected-- but graded leniently since it is well made. Anyone who is a fan of the style or of hefeweizens should definitely try it.

mariuszek (374) - Gdynia, POLAND - APR 3, 2015
Golden orange color, hazy with perfect head and lacing. Aroma of clives, banana, yeast. Taste a bit sweet with lemon sour notes, very drinkable, slightly sweet finish with a hint of akcohol reminding this is bock beer. Absolutely great brew.

Gangstergafje (152) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2015
Nice bright yellow color. The beer is nice cloudy, like a proper weizen should be. The thick layer of fluffy rough foam drops to leave a nice thin creamy foam. The smell is very nice. Nice and fruity with a nice splash of sour. This comes back in the mild taste. The beer is really soft, it massages the tongue. It has a really nice mouth sensation. The taste is not strong. The mild taste is perfect. It is a nice and mellow drink. You can taste some nice sweet citrus fruits. The finish is long and sweet, very pleasant.

Taste is, as they say, subjective and this may not be the most beautiful or the best looking beer but the aroma is fantastic and the taste, imho, was/is amazing!
