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!

flylikeabanana (179) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2013
Bottle pours a cloudy gold with a thin but retentive white head. Aromas of pear, banana, and spices. Lively carbonation. Taste is rich and sweet maltiness, well balanced. Banana, citrus, coriander, and an herbal, fizzy finish. Great alcohol masking.

hauxe (380) - Butzbach, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2016
Pours hazy golden orange from the bottle. Leaves a massive white crown that slowly turns foamy and fades. The tradional Weizen aromas are all here: banana, bubble gum, yeasty bread. Taste is crisp, lightly bitter, and ends in a drawn out and spicy finish with hints of clove and pepper. On the lighter side for a Weizenbock; a light warmth from the alcohol is there but remains overall very subdued. This is a bock you can enjoy on a summer day just as well as in the winter. Overall a balanced and enjoyable offering from one of my favorite German breweries.

Echon (347) - Århus, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2016
Straw coloured and cloudy. Fruity and spicy, with a malty wheat flavour. Full, moderately sweet taste with low bitterness. Pungent and spicy finish. Full body. Overall, a good weizenbock. Naturally, this is not as malty as other bocks (especially doppelbocks), but the yeast provides more flavour here.

DenverLogan (1071) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - AUG 23, 2016
From a bottle into a Rodenbach Grand Cru stem glass. Pours cloudy gold-yellow with big head and lace. Aroma of banana, grains, malts. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of amber malts, banana, slight alcohol, minerals, slight bubblegum. Overall rich, flavorful, decent though a bit more banana and less toasty malts than I’d expect in a weizenbock.

Shared 16.9 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a large creamy white head. Aroma of wheat, spice, yeast, and possibly coriander. Taste is wheat, spice, yeast, banana, coriander, bread, and perhaps a hint of white pepper. Nice.

kaserov (117) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 9, 2016
Color amarillo claro, como de sidra, con capa de espuma blanca de un dedo de grosor que no tarda mucho en disiparse. Carbonatación a tope. Aroma a trigo, limón, similar a muchas cervezas de trigo. La carbonatación no se nota tanto en boca. Poco cuerpo. Sabor muy similar a la Paulaner pero con un regusto algo más alcohólico (debido, obviamente, a los 7,7%). Buena cerveza, pero esperaba mucho más, no voy a mentir.

Flaske fra DjOeye. Farge orange uklar med hvitt skum. Lukt hvetemalt, banan. Smak hvetemalt, fruktig, noe krydder, fint balansert. En frisk og fyldig Hvetebock

The aroma is dry wheat and a bit of caramel. The taste has a moderate caramel sweetness mixed with a little banana and lemon. Complex and balanced. The texture is fairly soft.

Samea, vaaleankultainen, aika pitkälle lagereille tyypillisen värinen olut, joka vaahtoaa varsin runsaasti. Pilvimäinen kumpuileva vaahtokerros jää myös oluen pinnalle pitkäksi aikaa. Kaunista. Tuoksusta löydettävissä makeaa vehnäisyyttä ja banaania, popkornia sekä purukumia. Maku jatkaa samalla linjalla ollen pehmeän ja täyteläisen banaaninen, vehnäinen ja hieman purukumimaisesti makea. Loppupuolella kielen päällä tuntuu kevyt mausteinen pistely. Melko kevyt suutuntuma, hiilihappoja sopivasti. Oikein raikas ja hyvä kokonaisuus, mutta siinä ja siinä, onko jopa hieman vetiseen kallellaan.
