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.

A completely delicious bock with rich mouthfeel with fine bubbles and a finely balanced bitterness that makes this an amazing beer straight out of the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloves and spice make this a strong decent wheat beer. Lacks the depth and richness I want in a bock it feels much more like a classical but very nice wheat beer. Starts of sweet but has a acidic richness
