3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It poured a hazy yellow/orange and initially leaves a big three inch white foamy head in my weizen glass. The head does eventually die after five minutes. The very hazy yellow/orange body does show some light slowly moving carbonation. The smell has the clove up front with the esters powerfully backing it up. Some lemon comes out as well. As the beer warms, it gets a bit more peppery. The taste is sweet yet peppery at different times. It comes across pretty smooth in the taste. The palate is about a medium and initially sharp cutting my tongue like a knife. Fortunately, as the beer warms, it smoothes out a bit. This is not exactly a sessionable beer, a one and done bomber, though the alcohol isn’t tasted, it gently gets felt after a good hour. There is a slight sticky aftertaste and finish. Overall, this is good for its style and good for me.

-pours a cloudy bright golden with a medium to big,creamy,white head
-medium to high carbonation visible
-Follows the nose plus white peppers and a big sweetness
-medium carbonation (not as spritzy as usual wheat beers)
-light to medium body
-alcohol well hidden
Vitus is basically Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier on steroids.
Crazy drinkable for a Weizenbock too.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2016 Hazy yellow with a big frothy white foam. Nice wheat taste. Not too much banana compare to Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier. Full body and very little alcohol. If i want smooth wheat beer i will choose Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier if feel like getting a stronger wheat beer this is it!
Or i can enjoy both at the same time! Weihenstephaner night out!

Flasche - Was das Aroma angeht, fällt das Vitus deutlich hinter das normale Weizen zurück. Hier gibt man sich klarer, struktureller, unaufgeregter. Gut gemacht, aber etwas eindimensional. Der Alkohol ist perfekt eingebunden.

Hazy yellow with a big frothy white cap of foam. Fantastic example of the style. Wheat. Not too much banana. Bit of spice. Caramel. The yeast is excellent. Classic. No alcohol. A little tang. Full body. Creamy and effervescent. Complex and interesting, yet balanced and approachable.
