4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is turning into one of my favorite beers - - and a particular godsend since I spend half the year in Germany (where the craft beer movement is just now STARTING to get some traction). For a weizenBOCK the Vitus is lush and lovely - - the banana and clove are wafting, enchanting. For a WEIZEN it has an assertiveness and fullness that is lacking in most weizens. Absolutely delicious. This combination of fullest weizen character with bockish assertiveness and a gorgeous frame rules supreme.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
