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!

0,5 liter bottle. Golden trouble coloured beer. Defintely tastes a bit like the all known white beer from weihenstephaner, its a bit more spiced and thanks to that an other character.

Jeez, Im lucky to have had the Ayinger weizenbock a few days ago. This one may just have the edge. Bright, cloudy golden pour is beautiful. Thin white head with some grip. Esters and ripe fruit aromas on the nose are pleasing, but the flavor is outstanding. More banana and a solid wheat malt backbone make this one smooth-sipping beverage. Way too easy to drink.

Lovely wheat beer, nice aroma and sweetness, probably coming from the 7.7% strength.

It pours classic Weihenstephaner huge billowing head, cloudy yellow. Has a really sweet and sough, dough aroma, and also strong lemon taste. I saw someone describe it as not banana but banana peel and I agree, its more citrus rind that straight citrus. I didnt realize it was 7.7%, 3 standard drinks in a bottle, and it definitely has kick.

UrbanCaveman (167) - Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2015
16.9 oz bottle, poured into a tulip glass at ~45 degrees F. Appearance: Pours a somewhat cloudy (fingers visible but blurry on the opposite side of the glass) brilliant golden yellow, and forms a massively fluffy white head that barely collapses even when drunk - I dont know that it ever went below a half-finger in height, with appropriately off-the-chain lacing. Carbonation streams continuously through the beer as tiny bubbles. Smell: Pure ester heaven. Rich notes of banana and clove swell out of the glass, with hints of coriander, peaches, and lush ripe wheat. Taste: Coriander citrus opens the flavor profile, and is swiftly joined by banana and spicy clove. A spot of peach flavor enters as it moves along, and bits of white pepper emerge at close to the same time. Underlying it all is a light biscuit-cracker malt, which comes more to the front at the finish, leaving behind a lingering mixture of wheaten malt, banana, and peach after the swallow. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied yet silky, this is an easy-drinking beer, not unlike the feel of a good hefeweizen. Overall: Less "imperial dunkelweizen" and more "imperial hefeweizen", this is definitely what one would expect from Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier Turbo Edition. Im quite the fan, though ultimately I give the nod to Tap 6 Aventinus for Best Weizenbock Ever.

minutemat (2397) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
500ml bottle from Saveur-Biere.com. Pours hazy gold with healthy white head. Gorgeously sweet weizen-bock aroma, continuing to a lovely fluffy taste with plenty of overripe banana esters to go around. Creamy, fruity, full and delicious. Yum.

Eructoblaster (3336) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2015
Bottle - 500ml. Beautiful cloudy golden body with a thick white foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with yeasty and citrusy hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its fresh malty/hoppy taste carries herbal, citrusy, and yeasty notes. Ends with with a decent bittersweet finish. Enjoyable.
