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!

16.9oz Bottle. The pour was a murky golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white rocky head that lasted throughout, reducing slightly to a small cap with excellent sheets of lacing. The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, light citrus hops and a sweaty yeasty with notes of banana, green apple, citrus (lemon), clove and a touch of honey. The taste was lightly sweet and very mildly malty with a hint of citrus that lasted throughout, and finished with a spicy yeast taste and had just a bit of banana at the end. The flavor stuck around for an average duration following the swallow, with a refreshing spicy citrus taste left lying on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was right between light and medium in body with a dry, creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Overall this was a very tasty and refreshing brew that had a great spicy banana ending and an awesome drinkability...

Flasche. Es ergießt sich ein eher dunkles Gelb, mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Fruchtiges Aroma von Grapefruit und Limette. Später ein bisschen Brotaroma. Ausgewogene Malzsüße im Geschmack, mit Noten von Banane, Orange, Apfel, Kaugummi. Außerdem Hefe. Gutes Bier.

A nice little banana/bubble gum combo on the aroma. Pours to a fluffy, puffy white head. Once it settles, there’s a sweet taste throughout and especially on the finish. Though the alcohol content is elevated, it never disrupts the taste.

De color ámbar algo pálido con reflejos verdosos y turbia. La espuma es blanca, muy densa en buena cantidad y persistencia. Una nariz intensa y expresiva con el cereal como protagonista con ese fondo acida y un punto cítrico de este punto de cervezas. En boca resulta cremosa y refrescante con un cuerpo medio, tambien se intuyen los lúpulos, final ligeramente amargo. Muy buena cerveza de trigo.

Smaak is vol zacht zoet banaan, limoen en een handvol specerijen. Mooi troebel grijs-geel met standvastige kraag de gehele rit. Nasmaak is licht zoet fruit als mandarijn. Aroma is een mix van honing, banaan en wat hooi.

ejr (180) - Sarpsborg, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2014
Lys blass gyllen farge med et hvit skum. Aroma av hvet, banan og krydder. Smaken følger aroma, litt tynn munnfølelse.

tricksta_p (1137) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2014
Aroma of banana, fruits, pepper, spices. Flavour is sweet banana, rather sweet overall but not too much. Finish is spicy and dry. Quite full-flavoured and well-balanced. An exemplary Weizenbock.

Sparf (120) - Östersund, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2014
Blommig jästdoft med toner av rengöringsmedel på en ganska lätt maltbotten och med inslag av citron. Färgen är ljust gyllene och ett livaktigt skum som halveras tämligen snabbt. En oväntat platt smak med brödkaraktär, bananfrukter och sackarin. Litet kryddsting med framför allt nejlika. En riktigt intressant öl. Eftersmaken är tämligen kort och jästig. Helgjuten kropp men för lite kolsyra.

Zoret (87) - Badalona, SPAIN - SEP 10, 2014
Aromes de pera, plàtan, llaminadura i poma. Color daurat, tèrbola amb abundant escuma blanca. Sabors de pera i plàtan, també alcohol i quelcom de formatge. Final dolç i sec alhora. Efervescent, balsàmica i refrescant. Li trobo a faltar quelcom mes del malt.

Very nice brew. Pours hazy gold with a fluffy white had. Aroma is lemon and funk. Bubbly carbonation in body, finishes sweet and sticky.

Initially clear golden body with an ample slowly disappating white head. Banana esters combined with clove and bubblegum flavor. The appearance changes to cloudy once the full bottle is poured. Aroma is something to behold. Another winner from Weihenstephaner. Normally I think of Weizenbocks as a bit darker and more caramel malts, this reminded me more of a strong hefeweizen, bordering on an abbey tripel style. Really solid beer and one I thouroughly enjoyed drinking.
