COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our light-coloured, spicy single-bock, “Vitus” is saturated with fine yeast and a creamy foam. It is a specialty with a round character based on the extra long storage time. The fruity smell of dried apricots joins aromas of citrus, cloves and hints of banana. Full-bodied and sparkling with an effervescent mouthfeel. Thus, the Vitus does not taste like a typical Bock beer but more like a noble, fruity wheat beer. Perfect with red meat, strong cheese and also able to guide desserts. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

AcctError488645 (201) - - FEB 22, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2020 Straw in colour with haze and a medium sized head. Nose is characteristic yeasty and with fresh nose of dried fruits and banana. Taste is also fruity wheat and some dried fruit to go with banana. Palate medium with remains of banana and light yeast. Very agreeable.

Walberla (74) - Alingsås, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2020 Härlig skumkrona efter försiktig upphällning. Banan och torkade aprikoser. Viss kryddighet. Jästig eftersmak. Fylligheten balanserar alkoholen.

LagerGuide122 (262) - - FEB 9, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2020 500ml bottle brewed in Germany at 7.7%. Very cloudy lemon-curd colour, strings of yeast seem present, decent sized so-so duration head. Aroma of lemony cleaning product citrus, some banana too, and a bit of spice. Low-moderate carbonation, decent creamy texture. Initial zingy lemon-curd hop hit, then banana-bread flavours in the middle, and some creamy wheat to finish - all are neatly conjoined, however, as is typical from Weihenstephaner - don't expect individual flavours to sing out alone. Rich sipper of a bock, with a boozy note contrasting to the smooth sweetness, and day and night compared to Erdinger's Pikantus - the two would go well together, though...this is sort of a Belgian Tripel of a Weissbier and that is sort of a Belgian Dubbel...perhaps. I kind of prefer the Pikantus to this, but definitely this is a quality brew.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2020 Creamy white head, pale light yellow colour. Light Smell of banana and some citrus. Smooth, slightly sour, we’ll balanced carbonization/mouth feel. Hint of sting you alcohol characteristic of “bock” in the end. Great beer.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2020 Cerveza con el premio de mejor cerveza del mundo 2011 de tradición alemana de la fábrica cervecera más antigua que existe. Color ámbar, turbia, alcohol muy bien integrado que apenas se nota y bastante espuma blanca con buena retención.

labeerinthum (4126) - Milano, ITALY - JAN 11, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2020 Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso viene attratto dal frumento e dallo speziato. La finezza olfattiva è normale e il modo in cui permane è sufficiente. Il manto birroso superiore è caratterizzato da una schiuma dalla buona tenuta. La grandezza delle bollicine è medio-fine. Il liquido è di apparenza velata e anche qui la grandezza delle bollicine è medio-fine. Il colore è giallo dorato brillante. Il corpo è pieno. L'amaro è pronunciato e c'è anche una componente leggermente acidula. La forza gustativa è elevata e la durata è buona. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali risultano di pronta beva. Il retrogusto è di decente intensità. L'aroma in bocca porta i segni di miele, frumento, frutta secca, pane cotto di recente e banana.

yerffoeg (501) - Dinant, BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2020 Pourtant très grand amateur de bières allemandes et spécialement bavaroise, cette dernière ne m'a toutefois pas laissé un souvenir impérissable, la bouche me laissant une note difficile à définir.
