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.

On tap at the brewery. My long trek to this place is over. When this beer hit my lips, I was in heaven. Smooth beer. Citrus, banana, and some spice.

On tap @Weihenstephaner in Berlin, pours a cloudy golden with thick foamy white head. Aroma of banana, cloves, and slight citrus. Taste similar, lots of banana notes, spice in the aftertaste. Medium body and light carbonation. Very refreshing

Gehbe (49) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUN 12, 2016
Bottle. Thick and long lasting white head. Rich, complex aroma: banana on top note, dried peach, candied orange zest, some clove/pepper. Mild taste, slight acidity in balance with slight sweetness, phenolic bitterness takes over after a second. Wonderful palate - thick and creamy first, crisp and dry later, with some alcoholic warmth and smooth finish. Truely a great beer. Love it.

Tap at Answer. Lemony yellow with bubbly head and haze. Smells like lemon chiffon and windex but not repellant. Flavor is a little bland and dirty. Meh.
