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.

mcmisko (362) - New York, USA - MAY 8, 2012
On tap at a bar in Tel Aviv. Golden yellow with a big white head. Smells malty with citrus, fruit and yeast. Full wheat body with spices and light fruits. Med carbonation. Lots of wheat of the aftertaste with spice. Very balance, refreshing, and what I expected. Well done brew.

jbruner (5462) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Pours a nice golden brown with decent head that dissipates. Smell is of wheat and fruit, and taste is similar, with a bit of an alcoholic aftertaste. Very good for a wheat beer.

ardiesr (62) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2012
Pours dark straw, light gold with large, long lasting white head, quite cloudy, strong carbonation. Aroma of banana and clove, strong pils sweetness and bready malt, some sweetness. Flavour has high carbonic acid bite on the back end, starts with banana and light sweetness, very light overall flavour with wheat the most prominent, finishes dry from carbonation with spice notes. Thick and creamy mouthfeel, coats the mouth well. Not much of a weizenbock, but a very nice strong, dry wheat beer.

Relatively light weizenbock which acts as a little brother to Aventinus. lacks a little fullness, but thankfully not alcoholic.

thechandler (593) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2012
Pours a hazy yellow-orange. Much lighter than I expected. Light bubblegum banana nose. Flavor is much more like a hefe than a weizenbock. Bubblegum sweet, and light clove and banana. Definitely doesnt taste like 7.7% Wonderful.

Snortley (14) - , New York, USA - APR 30, 2012
Light touch of spicy hops, not too bitter. Bready, yeasty, citrus, some malt, but not heavy, with grapefruit dominating the finish. Mildly flavorful; a good fall or spring brew.

musinj6 (510) - Dedham, Massachusetts, USA - APR 29, 2012
Pours a translucent straw color with a 3 finger head that lingers briefly then dissipates, leaving no lacing. Prominent bready malt. Mild lemon.. Hint of citrus hops. Flavor starts sweet then mellows into a bitter character then has a brief finish. Medium body with lively carbonation. Sticky palate. Pretty good.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2015 Nice yeasty aromas with banana hints. High on carbonation with a really nice balanced body. Fruity enough on taste. Citrus is more than taste-able.

Recently rated the best beer in the world. We were excited to try and it did not disappoint. Beer is golden and yellow with a white head. Surprisingly fruity and sweet. Somewhat yeasty. A great summer or winter beer. Aroma of bananas.
