An easy-drinking sweet hefe. Orange colored with big white head, aroma of yeasts and dog’s breath. Flavor is less yeasty and more grainy, standard flavors present. Different from Aventinus.

Although I can find it here, I didn’t know about this until a friend brought a bottle back from Germany specifically so that I could do this review. I do love my beer friends! - Opening the bottle delivers a beautiful aroma of warm banana pudding and clove. The pour is just as rich, with a deep honey-gold color and capped with a foam the color of the middle of a toasted marshmallow. It smells delicious, and looks equally inviting. - A tip of the glass brings home the aroma, lilting over my tongue and filling my mouth with a rich, warm flavor. The spices flood my taste buds; a cool beer with a warm delivery. - The finish is smooth, comforting, and full of mouth-watering Belgian yeast. There is little about this that I could say was harsh. In fact, at $4 for a pint, I will be looking for this as I go-to in my refrigerator. Sometimes you have to go a long way to discover something in your own backyard. My thanks to Josh for bringing this to my attention, I will definitely be drinking this quite often.

330 mL bottle shared with ebone1988. The pour is a slightly dark golden orange with a thick frothy white collar and a good bit of lace as it falls. The aroma is interesting. There is a strong spicy wheat and a rather unpleasant yeast and wheat there. It’s got the standard Belgian yeast profile that I don’t like, but it’s wheaty and just meh. The flavor is more sweet and lightly metallic. There is a clove that dominates for a bit before just giving way to the spicy yeast. I’m not a can of this at all. The mouth feel is a little thick and the carbonation is soft. There is a lingering spicy clove on the aftertaste that is not good. Damnit.

Maddog (508) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2016
I love Weizenbocks. Vitus pours a tad clearer than the hefe with some active carbonation an aroma of yeast and wheat. Flavors are banana, soft wheat, yeast and fruit. Delicious and refreshing.

YantarCoast (873) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JUL 14, 2016
500ml bottle from aPivo.ru. Pours hazy straw yellow with a large white head. Aroma is banana, spice, bubblegum. Taste is banana, citrus, wheat, clove. Medium sweet with low bitterness. The colour and flavour of the beer make it seem more like a high-strength weizen.

kingaugusta (210) - Georgia, USA - JUL 9, 2016
Pours very cloudy and bright gold with a frothy white head. Nose is wheat and banana bread with some hops and touches of spicing. Flavor is similar and rich with a lot more esters and layering than a typical German wheat beer. Finish is quick and dry. Alcohol is totally hidden. Very good beer.
