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!

neuromatt (1168) - Toronto, Ontario, - FEB 26, 2013
50 cL bottle from the LCBO, served in a branded weizen glass. Pours hazy golden with a large white head that fades to a thin cover and leaves a small amount of lace. On the nose there are notes of banana, pepper, spice and wheat, along with yeast and subtle hops. The flavour is moderately sweet with huge banana. There are also subtle notes of wheat, lemon, spice, and yeast. The finish is moderate in length, fruity-malty and slightly spicy. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth, creamy texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is a nice fruity wheat beer with huge banana notes and a creamy texture. Very nice. 2013-02-26

A surprisingly light yellow hazy body. The white fluffy head settles down quickly. Nose has loads of sweet bananas, hay and spices. Taste is quite sweet and the the finish has an interesting bitterness. Carbonation is quite soft and the palate feels rich. Overall very nice, rich and creamy but easy to drink. Excellent aromas!

Lele (128) - Padova, ITALY - OCT 16, 2014
Colore giallo chiaro paglierino, ricorda la buccia di limone, con toni verdastri. Schiuma fine, decisamente abbondante e molto persistente. Torbida. Aroma citrico e floreale, un po’ di polvere che stona leggermente. Un aroma fresco che stimò le bene le ghiandole salivati. In bocca prevale il caramello da chewingum, ma si avvertono anche sentori di frutta gialla tropicale (mango, ananas e un po’ anche banana matura). Leggera nota citrica. Retrogusto non molto persistente, dove si e verte ancora il chewingum. Carbonizzazione un po’ accentuata, con bollicine finissime. Alcool non molto elvato (7,7 gradi), ma che si sente. Una piacevole scoperta.

Marheb (2130) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
(Bue sur place en fût): Des poires mûres et du blé sûr qui pataugent dans une mare épicée au cou de girofle. Le corps est juste assez aérien pour disperser les sucres et avec la touche sulfureuse en finale, la buvabilité est monstre.

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
500ml bottle served in its own weizen glass. Re-reviewed at the Wiehenstephan monastery @ Freining, Munich area, 28th of September, 2012. A: Pours a huge fluffy bubbled aired white head is formed when poured. Good retention and some lacings formed and left in the glass. Cloudy pale orange color S: Smells pretty good. Wheat, cereals, bread and yeasts. Smells like a hefeweizen with the difference that it’s even sweeter. Banana-clove is there and also caramel and honey in the end T: Follows the nose: wheat, bread, caramel malts, yeasts. Some banana esters. Very light bitterness M: Medium and bit molasses body. Medium carbonation. A bit sweet with light bitterness. Very pleasant and drinkable O: Great Weihenstephaner specimen. Refreshing and delicious [ BA Review @ 6/18/2011 ]

camoes (144) - PORTUGAL - OCT 10, 2014
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 15C adapted to light color bock). Bottle 50 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: sweet wheat aromas mixed with vanilla and some faint banana. no hop aromas. some alcohol. APPEARANCE: gold color and hazy. large moussy white head with good retention. TASTE: sweet vanilla flavour, mixed with a strong wheat presence. very low bitterness with a relative dry finish. PALATE: medium body with moderate carbonation. OVERALL: a very interesting variation of the traditional weizen bock style, which uses a dunkelweizen.

Good bodied fruity brew with tons of bananas and a fine balance of wheat, yeast and slightly acidic fruits. Some alcohol warming in the finish.

Willsaar (16) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Maybe my favorite weizen bock. Such a wonderful beer. I had this on tap at Der Schwarzer Kolner in Brooklyn. The pout is lovely, with a big thick almost craggy head. It’s a hazy yellow honey color, with healthy co2 that bubbles up, it’s wonderful to behold. This is a beer you really should sniff for a moment, because there is so much in the aroma- strong banana, citrus notes, floral notes, bread and yeast, hay, and a hint of bubble gum too. It’s a great sniff. In the taste some of the aroma notes carry through, with bubble gum, lemony citrus, and a slightly sweet alcohol in there too. The mouthfeel is sticky, but in such a pleasant way paired with the co2, which provides a nice smooth finish. One of my all time favorites.
