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!

I had been wanting to try this for a ling time and today I finally picked up a bottle. I was expecting a great beer and my expectations were met and exceeded. Pours hazy gold color with a clean white head that hangs around for a long time and leaves lacing on the glass. Smells-Bananas and clove. Tastes-Similar to the smell. Fantastic balance of sweetness and spice. Banana/bubblegum tastes up front. Some floral notes but this is for the most part a sweet beer. Mouthfeel-Decent carbonation with a dry finish. Overall- Another phenomenal beer from one of my favorite breweries. Must try.

Mouthfeel starts creamy and carbonated, finishes dry and lets the fruity flavors linger. This is a fantastic example of the style, great drinking beer.

500ml bottle. Smells as it tastes. That is sour. Banana and clove with a sour edge. I’m probably showing my ignorance here but Id say this is not as good a beer as its made out to be.

This is the perfect Weizen. A Weizen Bock is always preferred when available versus a regular Weizen. This one is a Helles, in color. The hop nose is subtle and subdued, appropriate for the style. The flavor of the Weihenstephan yeast strain is perfectly balanced with this high Gravity Bavarian Wheat Ale. The ethanol content is insidious and beckons one to order just one more, again and again. Weihenstephan is my favorite Weizen yeast strain. Although variety is truly the spice of life, shall I constrain myself to this strain, or shall I train my brain on another strain? That is the question.
