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!

I don’t know if it’s the best beer in the world, but if not, it should be so near (almost, amongst the wide distributed beers). It’s very complex, rich in flavours and aromas, steady, perdurable and complete. You can find citrus, pineapple, grain, floral regards, smooth touch of pepper and spices, etc. Very refreshing, but, at the same time, serious and elegant. The kind of beer you can have in a pub, beside the fireplace or in the best restaurant. Just IN-DIS-PEN-SA-BLE!!

Hazy yellow, orangish pour from draft. Citrus aroma. Taste is banana clove. Very robust Weiss beer. Finishes very strong for the style of beer. This is your grampa's hefeweizen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

androman (301) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2014
50cl bottle @ home from Mitra. Slightly hazy pale golden color, extra big creamy white mostly lasting good lacing head. Aroma apple, caramel, cereal, parfume, banana. Taste medium sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, hint of umami. Light to medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, sweetish fruity finish with medium duration. Very refreshing, can’t feel the difference between this and just another weizen beer, not bad thow.

Tu sais que tu as une bonne bière quand les mouche de vinaigre s’en fut des bananes et voyagent à travers la maison pour atterrir la dedans. Cette bière a un arôme très fort de banane mûre avec un peu de blé, levure et alcool. C’est jaune brumeux avec une grande mousse blanche stable. En bouche c’est pas mal pétillante, mais avec les bulles douces. C’est assez onctueux mais la carbonization lui rend presque léger. Le goût est des bananes mûres, un peu sucré, du blé, et des épices légères. Il a une bonne chaleur dans la finale que me rappel un peu les bières Trappistes. Excellente.

fkoolen (226) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2014
Hazy wheat-yellow coloured, good lasting white head. Thin but spicy aroma. Taste has the fruity (banana), soft and creamy tones of a typical German wheat beer, but accompanied by nicely spicy yeasts, and a relatively high alcohol grade. Full body, medium carbonation.

Pours a cloudy gold with stark white head. Honey, straw, lemon on the nose. Very sweet citrus notes, slightly bready, very yeasty, with plenty of honey and bananas. A very drinkable summer beer, but it?s almost too sweet.

nimbleprop (4594) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 30, 2014
50cl pour at Dacha Beer Garden in DC. Pours a very hazy yellow with some creamy, white head. Nose has a ton of spice, bubblegum, clove, coriander, bananas, yeast, some straw. Flavor follows right along, mellow banana, clove, white pepper, bubblegum, mild malt, a little grassy, some straw. Creamy, full bodied, spicy finish.

Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a cloudy pale orange yellow with a small white head that is quickly gone leaving a ring. Nose has bananas, light cloves, honey and bread. Light sweet front well balanced by a light spiciness and a banana bread finish. Mouth is creamy with active carbonation. Very nice.
