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.

vinivini (706) - BELARUS - JUL 26, 2015
Cloudy golden, two finger tall head. Stays for very long as a thick film. The nose is very spicy with banana & some fruit. Medium to full body. Well rounded. Sweetish wheat flavour with huge spicy yeastiness. Minimal bitterness. An excellent thing

Cloudy dark gold with little head, banana, spice and a hint of orange juice on the nose, full bodied and dry-sweet, a touch of sourdough and honey.

Vestergaard (910) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2015
Bottle thanks to Mads! Pours a hazy golden with a big, white head. Aroma is very saison-like. Wheat, pepper, yeast, slight funk. Taste is dry and sweet, slightly fruity and with a dry finish. High carbonation and a smooth body. Nice one!

TorbenJensen (488) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2015
Although the head is thick and rich increases a delectable aroma of banana and fresh wheat beer. The flavor is banana, ripe fruit and a particularly rich flavor of wheat. Slightly spicy coriander put a fine edge on its otherwise sweet malt fullness, and its light and almost anonymous hop bitterness provides long harmonious finish. The alcohol is relatively high, but set in the background of its spicy sweet filling.

Kauge (684) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 10, 2015
Bottle from Stockmann in Tallinn. BB 30.06.16. Cloudy golden yellow with a huge off-white head that retains nicely, leaving little if any lacing. On the nose it’s so refreshing - lemon, ginger and cinnamon cookies, wheat and dough, warming sweetness... Tastes as nice - wheaty, citrusy, spicy. Crisp, thin carbonation. Nice and firm body. Oh my, this is excellent - the kind of beer that makes you want to just shut up and enjoy.

SB beställningssortimentet, flaska uthämtad Oskarshamn. Svagt skum. Banan och frukt av annat slag. Rund och fin på läppen. Stilig flaska. Inte fullt så fruktig i smaken som på Ruhrhackel. Undrar hur den är på fat?
