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!

Just a perfect brew, served in proper glass ware on tap in all its glory. I can’t think of anything I’d add or change about this beer.

Bottle purchased at Total Wine, Gilbert, AZ. Pours a butterscotch-yellow, with a massive white head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is banana, CLOVE, bread/yeast and malt. Taste is sweet, banana, clove, coriander and yeast. Finish is sweet and refreshing. This is as good as wheat beer gets. True brewing art. For it’s style, one of the best beers in the world.

Not just one of the best wheat beers, but one of the best beers that i had ever had. Just the right amount of everything...alcohol, hops, wheat, banana and cloves taste. Perfectly balanced! Got that, American brewers? If you cannot make a balanced brew, then give up and leave it to the experts, the Germans and the Britons.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours a cloudy gold with a white head. Taste sweet, banana, citrus. I thought this was very good. I would most definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Astoundingly good wheat beer. The frothy, long-lasting head releases aromas of bubblegum, banana, and grain. Forget about gimmicky spices; this weizen bock is all about the wheat. Its mouthfeel is soft and refreshing. Taste reflects more of those bubblegum and banana qualities. In summary, this is a world-class wheat ale.

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.

Wow, this beer brings so many memories back for me from Germany. Aroma is spot on for a great Weizen. Pours a beautiful thin yellow with a very thick white head.

Hazy yellow with big, foamy, white head / Bright nose of lemon, banana straw, clove, and coriander / Medium body, moderately tart and sweet, creamy, with beautiful balance and long finish with just a hint of bitterness / Flavors of orange, lemon, banana, clove, straw, and coriander / Near perfect, with an especially luscious body.
