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!!

wimpyjoe (4215) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle from Booths, Media City. Pale amber-gold with a thin head. Has a fine wheat aroma and taste, perhaps a little more so in the former than latter as the flavour does not linger too long. There’s a touch of spice here but does not make the beer too indistinct from its style.

stoutnick (570) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2014
Cloudy pale pour. Aroma is strong wheat esters with some banana vibe. Taste is strong tropical fruit of the same quality but quite sickly. Palate is like brine - turns me stomach. Overall not my sort of style at all.

budedou (398) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - OCT 22, 2014
Hazy pale yellow liquid with big head. Medium to full body and carbonation. Sweet but not overwhelming. Aroma of banana and toffee. Taste like banoffee pie. Medium long finish. Taste as a Hefe-Weizen but stronger. Excellente!!

Moebbels (341) - FINLAND - OCT 16, 2014
A surprisingly light yellow hazy body. The white fluffy head settles down quickly. Nose has loads of sweet bananas, hay and spices. Taste is quite sweet and the the finish has an interesting bitterness. Carbonation is quite soft and the palate feels rich. Overall very nice, rich and creamy but easy to drink. Excellent aromas!

Lele (131) - Padova, ITALY - OCT 16, 2014
Colore giallo chiaro paglierino, ricorda la buccia di limone, con toni verdastri. Schiuma fine, decisamente abbondante e molto persistente. Torbida. Aroma citrico e floreale, un po’ di polvere che stona leggermente. Un aroma fresco che stimò le bene le ghiandole salivati. In bocca prevale il caramello da chewingum, ma si avvertono anche sentori di frutta gialla tropicale (mango, ananas e un po’ anche banana matura). Leggera nota citrica. Retrogusto non molto persistente, dove si e verte ancora il chewingum. Carbonizzazione un po’ accentuata, con bollicine finissime. Alcool non molto elvato (7,7 gradi), ma che si sente. Una piacevole scoperta.

Marheb (2164) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
(Bue sur place en fût): Des poires mûres et du blé sûr qui pataugent dans une mare épicée au cou de girofle. Le corps est juste assez aérien pour disperser les sucres et avec la touche sulfureuse en finale, la buvabilité est monstre.

eduardovl (891) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
500ml bottle served in its own weizen glass. Re-reviewed at the Wiehenstephan monastery @ Freining, Munich area, 28th of September, 2012. A: Pours a huge fluffy bubbled aired white head is formed when poured. Good retention and some lacings formed and left in the glass. Cloudy pale orange color S: Smells pretty good. Wheat, cereals, bread and yeasts. Smells like a hefeweizen with the difference that it’s even sweeter. Banana-clove is there and also caramel and honey in the end T: Follows the nose: wheat, bread, caramel malts, yeasts. Some banana esters. Very light bitterness M: Medium and bit molasses body. Medium carbonation. A bit sweet with light bitterness. Very pleasant and drinkable O: Great Weihenstephaner specimen. Refreshing and delicious [ BA Review @ 6/18/2011 ]
