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.

thb (829) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 11, 2012
Remarkably similar to the hefeweiss in a lot of ways. Pours a swampy light orange, plenty of head. Aromas of bananas, bread, cloves. Taste is maybe a little sweeter but retains tartness/bitterness to balance. Alcohol is utterly invisible.

jaghana (6070) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAR 10, 2012
Bottle 50cl, a cloudy golden orange beer with huge creamy head. Nose is on banana and fresh bread. Aroma is malty with bread and wheat notes slightly fruity with a light caramel body, very creamy, alcohol is well hidden. Finish is long with apricot, almond and caramel notes, bubblegum hints, very smooth, some hops bitterness at the finish. A great one even if lees syrupy that great weizenbocks.

March 6, 2012; 7.7% abv, 500 mL bottle. BBD: 26/02/2013; refrigerated, beermug Nose of fruity esters, mostly banana with some cloves. As it warms, there is a bit of mustiness in the nose. Pours a beautiful hazy and dark golden colour with thick white head. Nice active carbonation. Bottle is pretty nice, too. Tastes as it smells, flavours of banana, spice and bready malts. There is some hops, though well blended and clean, mostly herbal and earthy tastes. Alcohol is well hidden, which could get dangerous. Beer is very clean with a light refreshing body. Flavours sit nicely in the mouth. This is excellent, both tasty and refreshing. Glad I have more.

rejtable (2677) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2012
Yeah this is great! Up front it’s very cereal with almost buttery notes. Middle is very yeasty with a very dry spicy finish. Big carbonation in the mouth with a medium creamy feel. Pours straw coloured and very cloudy. Big massive head that dissipates to a small foamy white layer.

From the bottle, hazy gold with a soft white pillowy head. Aroma is hay, caramel, vanilla, floral. Begins with a soft subtle tartness that makes way to a sweet sharpness on the end. Very pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 10, 2012 Very tasty! Has some nice spice with some sweet flavour. A very nice wheat. I really enjoyed this beer. Top shelf regardless of style.

barncatmatt (2286) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2012
500ml bottle from the LCBO. pours hazy golden with a lasting white head. basically an imperial hefe. one of my least favourite styles but pretty well executed. when i think weizenbock i think aventinus and this pales in comparasin.

hlkanga (204) - - MAR 4, 2012
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 .

3.4
Johnsense (1669) - - MAR 3, 2012
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.
