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!

Maybe my favorite weizen bock. Such a wonderful beer. I had this on tap at Der Schwarzer Kolner in Brooklyn. The pout is lovely, with a big thick almost craggy head. It’s a hazy yellow honey color, with healthy co2 that bubbles up, it’s wonderful to behold. This is a beer you really should sniff for a moment, because there is so much in the aroma- strong banana, citrus notes, floral notes, bread and yeast, hay, and a hint of bubble gum too. It’s a great sniff. In the taste some of the aroma notes carry through, with bubble gum, lemony citrus, and a slightly sweet alcohol in there too. The mouthfeel is sticky, but in such a pleasant way paired with the co2, which provides a nice smooth finish. One of my all time favorites.

"another winner from this impressive 1000 year old brewery! this was ever so slightly my favorite between the kristall weisse, dopple & weizenbock. looked lighter than the abv or flavor would imply. great fruity spiciness and bready beer, all rolled into one. very nice. gotta do a side by side with Scheider Aventinus.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2014 Pours light straw with full white head. First taste has caramel, just a tinge of bitterness, banana, hay. Just very playful, smooth and creamy.

Scopey (7221) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2014
Keg at at BD Glasgow. It pours hazy gold with a medium white head. The nose is spicy, cereal, straw, grain, sweet banana, Frosties and wheat. The taste is bitter-sweet, doughy, massive banana, cereal, wheat, straw, orange peel and light alcohol with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Hides abv very well. Banana bomb! Nor half bad!

Flasche. Es ergießt sich ein eher dunkles Gelb, mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Fruchtiges Aroma von Grapefruit und Limette. Später ein bisschen Brotaroma. Ausgewogene Malzsüße im Geschmack, mit Noten von Banane, Orange, Apfel, Kaugummi. Außerdem Hefe. Gutes Bier.

A nice little banana/bubble gum combo on the aroma. Pours to a fluffy, puffy white head. Once it settles, there’s a sweet taste throughout and especially on the finish. Though the alcohol content is elevated, it never disrupts the taste.

didierlewallon (125) - ponferrada, SPAIN - SEP 20, 2014
De color ámbar algo pálido con reflejos verdosos y turbia. La espuma es blanca, muy densa en buena cantidad y persistencia. Una nariz intensa y expresiva con el cereal como protagonista con ese fondo acida y un punto cítrico de este punto de cervezas. En boca resulta cremosa y refrescante con un cuerpo medio, tambien se intuyen los lúpulos, final ligeramente amargo. Muy buena cerveza de trigo.

GSAP (510) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2014
Smaak is vol zacht zoet banaan, limoen en een handvol specerijen. Mooi troebel grijs-geel met standvastige kraag de gehele rit. Nasmaak is licht zoet fruit als mandarijn. Aroma is een mix van honing, banaan en wat hooi.

ejr (188) - Sarpsborg, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2014
Lys blass gyllen farge med et hvit skum. Aroma av hvet, banan og krydder. Smaken følger aroma, litt tynn munnfølelse.

tricksta_p (1279) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2014
Aroma of banana, fruits, pepper, spices. Flavour is sweet banana, rather sweet overall but not too much. Finish is spicy and dry. Quite full-flavoured and well-balanced. An exemplary Weizenbock.
