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!

First smell I had was smokey, aroma after of light banana. Light in flavor but still slightly full bodied. Soft on the palate, malty, and sweet.

En pression @ Six Roses Bar (Lille Fr). Bière de type blanche Allemande, plutôt corsée (weizenbock). Assez trouble, le nez présente des esters de banane et de clou de girofle typiques des bières de blé Allemandes. En bouche c’est costaud, avec un corps plutôt prenant et agréable. C’est définitivement une bière à consommer l’hiver. Attention, cela se boit tellement facilement, qu’on risque d’y laisser des plumes.

Bottle @ Home The nose on this beer sets the too which all other Weizenbocks are compared. A rush of bannana, hints of clove. Taste is great, perfect mouth feel, the carbonation is moderate. The real beauty of this beer is the complexity of the flavor, subtly spicy, deceptively easy to drink but still a beer of substance.

Poured from a pint bottle into a weizen glass on 12.21.13. A: 2 1/2 finger fluffy head. Golden. S: Banana, banana bread, lemon. T: Follows the nose. Banana, lemon, yeast. M: Creamy smooth. O: This is the best weizenbock I’ve ever had. It’s a banana and lemon bomb. Fantastic!

Excellente véritable blanche allemande au col de mousse abondant. Bouquet de bananes mûres/clous de girofle, corps plein très porté sur le blé, bonne pétillance, se boit tout seul mais attention aux effets secondaires !

MatthijsE (879) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle @ home. Pours a cloudy yellow with full head and lots of carbonation. Aromas of lemons, banana, dough, and wheat. Flavors of candied fruit, cloves, bananas, and wheat. Creamy, foamy and fruity.

A great balance of tastes, beautifully textured , perfectly viscous and smooth as Silk.

SinH4 (344) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 7, 2015
Looks like a Weizen. Aroma is concentrated sweet bananas, estery, spicy. Warming, spicy taste with a warming finish, a little bit metallic in the finish at first. Weizen texture, not boozy despite the warmth. A fantastic Weizenbock (which already is a style I particularly enjoy) though I personally prefer Aventinus.

Yellow orange color. Incredible mild feeling with surprisingly sweet taste. Slight bananas. The consequent improvement of a wheat beer.

Bière blonde aux couleurs tirant sur l’ambre trouble. Des saveurs épicées et une finale asséchante voire collante.

Hefeweizen on steroids. Same look and pour, stronger smell, much stronger taste. This one is a great bigger beer: it packs a punch but is not cloying, not too malty or over the top. Very nicely done. Would drink it again!
