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!

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.

Gehbe (46) - 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.

tia (1621) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2016
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.
