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.

On tap at Csak a j sr. Cloudy, light yellow liquid with minimal white head. Aroma is sort of bitterish with citruses some slight herbal notes and almond maybe. Taste brings in the more usual wheaty sweetness: a bit of honey and sweet wheat mush. Very complex weizen bock, I really like how balanced and still exciting is the taste and the aroma.

500ml bottle

Pours light yellow with a small white head. Aroma has notes of banana, malts, yeast and earthy notes. Taste is quite fruity and malty with notes of bananas, spices and earthy hints. Full bodied, smooth finish. Nice, quite balanced weizen bock.

Flaske 0,5l. Gave fra Rune. Drukket hjemme 19 Sep 11. Gyldenbrun. Veldig uklar. Ikke pen. Hyt luftig skum som varte noen minutter. God hvetelaroma. Sitrus o.s.v. Veldig st p smak. Litt plommer, litt rosiner. Mye kullsyre. Antydning til bitterhet i ettersmaken. Skuffende.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2011
Bottle, Coppers, Ncl. This is a really excellent beer. Pours a hazy pale gold, with a large, pillowy, white head. Beautifully sweet, but not sickly, subtle spices and cloves anda lovely sugary aftertaste, which is totally in balance. Has a lasting finish, with the alcohol arriving quite late, to give a warming sensation in the chest.

My favorite of the Weihenstephaner line. Aroma of spice and citrus. Body medium to light. Tastes of banana, wheat, and some darker fruit. Tried with Jay, Jess, and Vaughn at the KC beerfest (10/17/2009) before Jay and Laurens Oktoberfest.

On tap at gourmet Haus. Pours a hazy gold with massive carbonation. Smooth full and billowy white head. Great spice on the nose. Delicate. Well rounded mouthfeel of chewy biscuit. Spice throughout the finish.
