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!

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.

Nice bright yellow color. The beer is nice cloudy, like a proper weizen should be. The thick layer of fluffy rough foam drops to leave a nice thin creamy foam. The smell is very nice. Nice and fruity with a nice splash of sour. This comes back in the mild taste. The beer is really soft, it massages the tongue. It has a really nice mouth sensation. The taste is not strong. The mild taste is perfect. It is a nice and mellow drink. You can taste some nice sweet citrus fruits. The finish is long and sweet, very pleasant.

Taste is, as they say, subjective and this may not be the most beautiful or the best looking beer but the aroma is fantastic and the taste, imho, was/is amazing!

Lightly hazy gold pour with a pillowy white head. Aroma is banana peel, citrus, wheat, and Clive. Taste is banana peel, bubble gum, light citrus, and faint spice. Medium body with prickly carbonation.

Cerveza de trigo galardonada con el premio a mejor cerveza fuerte en wba y bien merecido, tiene buena apariencia una espuma muy densa gran sabor y graduación alcohólica (7,8) bien escondida, me da mil vueltas a fransikaner o paulaner una gran cerveza de trigo muy recomendable

A nice, solid beer. Good aromas and flavors of bananas, wheat, spices and perhaps some apricot or peach. The alcohol is hidden well. Relatively light and crisp finish.
