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!

furthur (757) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - MAY 15, 2016
Bottle, 750th rate. Hazy yellow beer, big white head faded. Aroma malt, banana, hint of kombucha. Taste is banana, malt, hint of lemon and cloves. Palate is soft and rich, carbonation subdujed, and nitro like. Finish is a bit sweet, and I’m not usually a wheat beer guy, but this is good.

kalunapz (10) - CROATIA - MAY 15, 2016
Možda i najbolje pšenično pivo koje sam pio, odlična aroma, tek nakraju se malo osjeti alkohol iako ga 7,7%...sasvim slučajno sam ga dobio i jednostavno jedva čekam novu priliku..

Très belle couleur jaune ambrée. Très trouble. La céréale est très présente avec de fortes notes épicées. De l’amertume maîtrisée. Un grand plaisir de dégustation.

2015 BJCP Category: 10C Weizenbock

AROMA: Sweet fresh banana bread and lemon fruit. Subtle clove spice. Very pungent and enticing. 11/12

APPEARANCE: Lemony yellow; cloudy but plenty of clarity. Effervescence easily visible. Large, white, fluffy foam. Excellent retention and lacing. 3/3

FLAVOR: Strong bready flavor; blonde and amber grains. Esters impart sweet banana and bubblegum flavors. Lemon flavor is quite prominent, too. Clove is subtle, but makes a nice garnish. Delicious. 18/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body suggests a lighter ABV. Bubbly but smooth. Dry/clean aftertaste. Very minor alcohol presence. Refreshing. 5/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: An amazing, near-perfect brew and a premiere example of the style. A sleeper in beer stores everywhere. 9/10

TOTAL SCORE: 46/50
