Our light-coloured, spicy single-bock, “Vitus” is saturated with fine yeast and a creamy foam. It is a specialty with a round character based on the extra long storage time. The fruity smell of dried apricots joins aromas of citrus, cloves and hints of banana. Full-bodied and sparkling with an effervescent mouthfeel. Thus, the Vitus does not taste like a typical Bock beer but more like a noble, fruity wheat beer. Perfect with red meat, strong cheese and also able to guide desserts. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

Yields a hazed yellow-amber color with a creamy white head, which falls down to a fluffy lacing atop the surface. Smells juicy of lusciously ripe bananas, sugared cereals and a soft spice pillow. Clove and wooden vanilla among white peppers build the yeast soothed spice profile in this. Mouthfeel is velvet and soft, although the carbonation is at a medium level with a refreshing, vivid finish. Tastes of ripe bananas, fresh cut grass, dried orange zest and spicy, soft yeast. Its spiciness is quite profound, while maintaining well entangled into the soothing yeast, calming peppers, clove and allspice. Finishes with moderate spices, white bread rind and toffee, pretty light once the spices recede. Sweet and refreshing at the same time, very pleasant to drink due to the astonishing balance, I kinda miss some additional depth, justifying the higher abv on this.

Bottle. Hazy orange amber with a pillowy white head. Sweet fruity, slightly spicy aroma. Fruity sweetness with a yeasty spiciness and light tingle of carbonation on the tongue. Medium to full bodied with a creammy malt and slightly spicy finish. Very good.

Probabilmente una delle migliori Weiss in circolazione, da buona scuola tedesca. Buon aroma, gusto deciso e retrogusto equilibrato, non eccessivamente pesante. Ottimo l’abbinamento con carni rosse e formaggi.

S_Side_Smitty (715) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Pours the color of tang with a nice cloudy glow with a thick white head. Aroma is fruity, citrusy, and slightly clovey wheat malts. Taste is bright like appearance with a fruity bubblegum taste tinged with clove and black pepper. It all klings to the palate and leads to a bready and slightly nippy black pepper bite for the finish.
