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.

Draught at Cooper Ales, Wow, rich creamy banana, pear tart, orange zest, wild honey, plenty of vanilla, touch of spice, clean dry finish. Awesome balance, this is pure liquid gold, one of my favorite brews of all time. Prost!

Zlotta (285) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUN 24, 2015
0,5 l bottle from bier-deluxe, best before 25/2/2016. Cloudy, golden yellow with a huge, creamy, almost stable, white head. Yeasty-spicy aroma of banana and clove with hints of vanilla, citrus and honeydew. Sweetish, yeasty-spicy taste with lots of banana, cloves and vanilla and with hints of cinnamon and honeydew. Short, yeasty, sourish and slightly bitter finish. Medium to full body, creamy and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Delicious, well-balanced and just as you would expect a pale weizenbock. Great, but there are even better ones.
