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.

Syfher (793) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2020 Bottle of 33cl, in a Tumbler; from the fridge. A classical, really good and refreshing witbier. A lot more on the fruit side than on 'acidic' side. Good.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2020 Hazy, peachy yellow color. Full, fruity smell. The taste is smooth and creamy. Summer fruits - apricots, hints of bananas and oranges. A bit of a 'Leffe sweetness'. Very accessible and easy going - the almost 8% alcohol is pretty well hidden. Great beer!

Monty27 (247) - GERMANY - MAY 16, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2020 You have to like banana to appreciate this Weizen. Just like the normal Weihenstephaner Weizen, this is one for German Weizen traditionalists. I personally prefer a hoppier, fresher wheat beer. Banana and alcohol is what you smell and less or none of the usual clove aroma. What makes this beer interesting is the fine foam, initial wateryness, quickly followed by an oily, smooth sensation, altogether causing a mouthfeel different from standard Weizen. The taste brings more banana and again, little spiciness. Though I can see this is a quality beer, it does not make my german top 25, as both the standard Weizen and the Weizenbock do in the ratebeer ratings.

Belcebooze (50) - Sevilla, SPAIN - MAY 11, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2020 Color dorado translúcido, claro para un sucedáneo de bock, y un dedo de espuma de buena retención. Aroma afrutado y maltoso. Cuerpo y carbonatación medios. Sabor dulce, maltoso y un poco afrutado. Más cercano a una weizen que a una bock, nada mal.

ironprog (133) - Florida, USA - APR 26, 2020
UPDATED: APR 26, 2020 1 pint 0.9 oz. bottle AROMA: Sweet with scents of apricot, banana, bubblegum and undertones of lemon. APPEARANCE: Pours a hazy light-gold with a frothy white head that dissipates slowly. TASTE: Softly sweet with flavors of banana and a hint of cloves. MOUTHFEEL: Medium-bodied with a slightly slick, but sticky texture. Carbonation is mild. There is a hint of soft-bitterness in the finish. OVERALL: I wasn't really sure what to expect from this beer, but I was pleasantly surprised with its overall 'softness'. And by that I mean, in all aspects (feel, taste, smell, etc.) the attributes always maintained a nice balance and never underwhelmed (e.g. needing to strain your senses just to detect something), nor overwhelmed (e.g. having your senses inflicted with blunt-force trauma). Additionally, I found that the flavor of this beer doesn't really change much as it warms to room temperature. To me, that is impressive, as I've found that most sweet-ish beers tend to get much sweeter as they warm. All-in-all, I can't really find anything to complain about other than I don't have another one waiting for me in the fridge.

max (135) - Mérignac, FRANCE - APR 11, 2020
UPDATED: APR 11, 2020 Bière passable. Elle ne présente aucun intérêt. Même le goût n'est pas là ! Une déception au plus haut point !

Zilb (707) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - APR 9, 2020
UPDATED: APR 9, 2020 Calendrier de l'Avent. 7 mois avant DLC. Blonde grosse carbo et mousse stable à fines bulles. Arôme fruité poire. On retrouve en bouche le côté fruité sur la poire et fruits jaunes. Très douce. J'adore !!

Brokkie (698) - - APR 1, 2020
UPDATED: APR 1, 2020 7,7%, een fijn stevig bier van Weihenstephaner. Smaakt als een triple. Zoete nasmaak. In de welbekende halve liter fles.

Peter_L (1408) - SWEDEN - APR 1, 2020
UPDATED: APR 1, 2020 Gyllengul vätska med vitt skum. Angenäm bananarom blandad med kryddor och jäst. Smaken domineras främst av kryddig och söt maltkropp. Munfyllnad med eldig eftersmak.
