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!

The aroma is dry wheat and a bit of caramel. The taste has a moderate caramel sweetness mixed with a little banana and lemon. Complex and balanced. The texture is fairly soft.

Samea, vaaleankultainen, aika pitkälle lagereille tyypillisen värinen olut, joka vaahtoaa varsin runsaasti. Pilvimäinen kumpuileva vaahtokerros jää myös oluen pinnalle pitkäksi aikaa. Kaunista. Tuoksusta löydettävissä makeaa vehnäisyyttä ja banaania, popkornia sekä purukumia. Maku jatkaa samalla linjalla ollen pehmeän ja täyteläisen banaaninen, vehnäinen ja hieman purukumimaisesti makea. Loppupuolella kielen päällä tuntuu kevyt mausteinen pistely. Melko kevyt suutuntuma, hiilihappoja sopivasti. Oikein raikas ja hyvä kokonaisuus, mutta siinä ja siinä, onko jopa hieman vetiseen kallellaan.

0,5 L bottle, served in Weihenstephaner weizen glass. Poured cloudy golden with a fluffy white four finger head. Lively carbonation in glass, looks amazing. Wonderful aromas of cloves, banana, orange peel, wheat, spices, caramel. Taste: Again cloves, spice, coriander, orange peel, wheat, caramel, hoppy bitterness, bread, banana, vanilla, citrus, hay. Slightly less carbonation in mouthfeel as the Hefenweizen had. A medium to full body with a very spicy and slightly dry bittersweet finish. Alcohol is very dangerously well hidden, this drinks like a banana milkshake. Absolutely love this delicious and very refreshing weizenbock! Prost!

Frisch aus der Flasche in Lichterfelde. Trübes Gold mit stabilem Schaum im Glas. Wunderbare Balance zwischen den den Hefenoten und den Malzen.

$3.59 bottle from Wine Warehouse. Pours cloudy golden with a large white head. Major banana - weird to say perhaps, but almost smells like banana cream pie. Taste is banana, wheat... also strangely reminiscent of banana cream pie. No crust, though. Tasty.

500mL bottle. Pours a hazy orange gold with a foamy, medium-sized white head. Aroma of banana and spice. Taste is of banana, wheat spiciness, and light citrus notes.

Although I can find it here, I didn’t know about this until a friend brought a bottle back from Germany specifically so that I could do this review. I do love my beer friends! - Opening the bottle delivers a beautiful aroma of warm banana pudding and clove. The pour is just as rich, with a deep honey-gold color and capped with a foam the color of the middle of a toasted marshmallow. It smells delicious, and looks equally inviting. - A tip of the glass brings home the aroma, lilting over my tongue and filling my mouth with a rich, warm flavor. The spices flood my taste buds; a cool beer with a warm delivery. - The finish is smooth, comforting, and full of mouth-watering Belgian yeast. There is little about this that I could say was harsh. In fact, at $4 for a pint, I will be looking for this as I go-to in my refrigerator. Sometimes you have to go a long way to discover something in your own backyard. My thanks to Josh for bringing this to my attention, I will definitely be drinking this quite often.

330 mL bottle shared with ebone1988. The pour is a slightly dark golden orange with a thick frothy white collar and a good bit of lace as it falls. The aroma is interesting. There is a strong spicy wheat and a rather unpleasant yeast and wheat there. It’s got the standard Belgian yeast profile that I don’t like, but it’s wheaty and just meh. The flavor is more sweet and lightly metallic. There is a clove that dominates for a bit before just giving way to the spicy yeast. I’m not a can of this at all. The mouth feel is a little thick and the carbonation is soft. There is a lingering spicy clove on the aftertaste that is not good. Damnit.

I love Weizenbocks. Vitus pours a tad clearer than the hefe with some active carbonation an aroma of yeast and wheat. Flavors are banana, soft wheat, yeast and fruit. Delicious and refreshing.
