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!

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 20, 2012
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...

Bottle. A pimped up hefe - bananas, lemon and bubblegum. Keeps a lid on the sweetness which is good.

Gehbe (41) - 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 (1620) - 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.

KeefOz (1463) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 31, 2016
BB 18.03.17. Poured a cloudy pale gold colour with a three-finger bright white dense foam head that retained well (diminished over about a five minute period) and laced OK. Carbonation high with fine to medium bubbles. Aroma of nice soft cloves and spice and sweet banana; alcohol well hidden. Taste initially of very sweet banana followed by a hint of cloves; very sweet over-all; alcohol well hidden. Light to medium body. Soft, smooth and slightly creamy with quite a sweet finish. Nice.
