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!

Stuedmaster (162) - Vista, California, USA - FEB 19, 2014
500 ml. bottle. Aroma of citrus, spice, pears, hay, and funky yeast. Hazy gold pour with a creamy, white head. Very fruity, rich, and delicious. Probably one of the best beers of this style. This is one of the oldest breweries in the world and it shows. The alcohol is well hidden, hits you in the head rather than the mouth. Medium to full body, creamy texture, average carbonation, long smooth finish. Similar to a hefeweizen but with more character. An excellent beer!

Un vrai délice, un nectar. Assez douce, un magnifique goût de banane. Une de mes préférées.

Beers of Germany (The Craft Beer Social - PA Chapter #1) Social Aroma - characteristic I associate with Hefeweizen also show up here - Wheat, Banana, and Bubblegum going on. Appearance - yellow body; liquid is cloudy; and the head is full about 1 1/2" and fluffy. Taste - the taste is dominated by wheat and that Hefe like yeast. Palate - body is medium; texture is thin to medium; the carbonation soft; and the finish short and yeasty.

Hazy gold wheat beer with a lasting head. I was expecting a much darker color. Fruity and complex taste.
