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.

From the tap @ Kirjakauppa, Pori. Pours hazy yellow with medium creamy head. Aroma has wheat, spices and grass. Taste is sweeter than the aroma with wheat, banana, yeast and coriander. Medium carbonated and medium mouthfeel. Slightly bittter aftertaste. Smooth and well balanced. Hides the alcohol well. A really good beer but still lacking that special something in it .

Hazy golden pour, a finger of white head. Wheat, clove, orange, banana in the aroma. Tastes as it smells, wheat, clove, orange, lemonpeel, banana, a bit bready. Medium bodied, fairly creamy mouthfeel. very slight hint of alcohol. looking forward to revisiting this after a few months.

rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2012
0.5l bottle from LCBO, served in a weizen glass. Pours a bright orange-yellow. Huge frothy white head. Tons of carbonation. Aroma: Strongly smells of bananas, orange, cloves and grass. Palate: Smooth, medium bodied, though thicker than most weissen. Fair amount of carbonation. Taste: Quite sweet. More oomph than typical weissen. Complex flavour. Quite nice - very pleasant to drink.

chris__hartley (442) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2012
It pours murky golden yellow with a reddish tint; the head is off-white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: sweet wheat, honey, bananas, slight coriander, and peppery yeast. The taste is medium sweet that finishes with a long medium sour note; there are notes of: lime zest, bananas, coriander, yeast, slight pepper, and slight sour dough. The palate is medium full bodied, lively carbonation, mouth-filling. Overall, it is the best Weihenstephaner product that Ive tried, thus far. Though, it is a mediocre wheat beer in general.

JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 29, 2012
500mL lickbow bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head that dissipates but never really goes away. Smells like yeasty hay, malty, spicy, citrusy, hits every note you would want it to. Tastes like a well done Belgian Strong Blonde, yeasty, powdered sugar, spice, lots of spice, checked by sweetness, but good sweetness and not over or under attenuated because its a well-crafted German beer that has been brewed for the past few centuries and by now they can pretty much make world class beer in their sleep.Mild banana. Lemon lime. Spritzy palate, medium body. I like it, and the price is awesome. Salty finish? I would drink this again, although what I really want from Weihenstephaner is the Korbinian, but surely the LCBO will deliver, guys, lets just wait................... This is the brewery that actually made me love a Dunkelweiss, so, I mean, theres that.........

tibicinoid (26) - Wyoming, USA - FEB 28, 2012
Pours a large, fluffy, off-white head, many centimeters in height and made up of medium-sized bubbles, creating a dense, sponge-like effect. Head declines over several minutes to a persistent cap atop the beer. Leaves small spots of lacing, nothing exciting. Body is lighter than Aventinus, this a dark and hazy yellow-gold with orange and yellow highlights when held to the light. Hazy to the point of barely being able to see my hand through the glass, but can still make out some modest carbonation. Aroma of wheat malt, old bananas, vanilla, and some bread. Not noticing phenolics or spices; wouldnt even be thinking about them if others hadnt mentioned detecting them. Seems simpler, less complex, than Aventinus. Taste opens with sweetness and tanginess from wheat malt, dense banana bread, noticeable phenolics such as nutmeg and clove. Transitions midway to large amounts of pale wheat and barley malt sweetness with intense bananas, reduced phenolics, vanilla, and caramelized sugar. Taste closes out with slight ethanol and some mild, but noticeable chocolate notes, which is a little unexpected, but interesting. Body is medium to medium-heavy with modest carbonation, allowing for a smooth, creamy mouthfeel with just a bit of foaming up on the palate. Finish is dry, slightly sticky from sweetness. Instead of being obviously smelt or tasted, alcohol burn is felt in the back of the mouth, throat, after each sip.

ration (2189) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2012
