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!

Lots of spices and banana up front, which I enjoy. Not the most complex of weizenbocks I have ever had but nonetheless this is solid. A bit light on the palate but overall it looks good, it smells good, and it tastes good. One of the beers I would like to stock up on for the warmer weather.

Hazy dark yellow colour, with a huge head. Smell is fruity, banana, and spicy too, cloves. Taste is malty, and again very spicy, licorice also. Alcohol detectable but not too evident. Very good beer.

Voor de verandering weer eens een Duits bier geprobeerd, een weizenbock deze keer. Lich geel van kleur, wat zoet-bittere smaak, banaan, kruidig. Verrassend zwaar, 7,7%, maar dat merk je niet tijdens het drinken. Lekker fris pittig witbier.

Rating #995, flaske fra SuperBest Vermlandsgade

En grågul øl med højt hvidt skum. Lækker sødmaltet duft med masser af bananer. Smagen skjuler alkoholen godt, men er en anelse besk og ubalanceret. Der en en del banan, græs og humle, men alt i alt er øllen hverken særlig gennemført eller kompleks. God, bitter eftersmag. Medium tykkelse, måske endda lidt tynd de 7,7% alkohol taget i betragtning. Sødmen er undertrykt og den er egentlig ikke så forskellig fra en almindelig hefeweizen. Jeg ville til enhver til foretrække en Aventinus frem for en Vitus. Den er dog ganske drikkelig, men jeg forstår ikke de høje ratings her på siden.

Weihenstephaner Vitus has a very thick, spongy, white, crackling head, a hazy (which gets even more so, when the bottom contents are swished & poured in), yellow-gold appearance, with strong bubble streams, and some lacing left behind. The aroma is strong and pungent: banana bread, banana pudding, yeast spice, some coriander, and some white wheat bread. Taste is of banana bread, banana pudding, some spice, sugar, and a touch of alcohol. Mouthfeel is fluffy and medium, and Weihenstephaner Vitus finishes semi-wet, easy drinking, and just a tad hot. Great stuff! RJT

Poors very black with stable head. Very roasted malt aroma with lots of chocolate and coffee. Taste is very sweet. Heavy body.

Ulysse (13) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2014
citrus, earthy, hazy, golden, sparkling, white foam, lively, light body, bitter, Holding up your glass to the sunlight lets one enjoy the beautiful appearance of this beer. Quite refreshing. Perfect for a hot summer day. Though I didn’t get any gazeous substance to smell when I opened the bottle. Weak smell and weak character. Would make a good beer for drinking with friends but too weak for a tasting experience.

My favourite weizen bock. Soft caramel taste combined with traditional weizenbeer banana taste makes a great combination.

Bottle 0.5 l. Hazy pale yellow liquid with big head. Medium to full body and carbonation. Sweet but not overwhelming. Aroma of banana and toffee. Taste like banoffee pie. Medium long finish.
