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 a bottle. Pours cloudy golden with white head. Typical hefe aroma, banana and cloves. Similar taste. Crisp and clean.

prawlie (1591) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2012
500 mL bottle from Beers of Europe into a pint glass. Yellow/orange cloudy beer with a good bubbly head on it. Good wheat aroma with a little more to it. Pleasant weiss beer, but not as different as I was expecting. Dry, wheaty, slightly boozy.

dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 3, 2012
Pours hazy yellow into the glass with a small white head. Strong citrus attacks the nose with candy and banana notes. Faint hints of thyme. Taste is mostly sweet with a light sourness and bitterness. Light body with a very creamy texture. Finish is bitter and lasts for about 15 seconds before you are ready for another sip. This is highly drinkable.

spkevin (434) - Doetinchem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2012
Bottle (past it’s shelflife). Hazy yellow pour with a big white head. Banana, bread, caramel and wheat in the aroma. Same hints in the taste. A lot of bread notes with the banana, bock notes and wheat notes. Very nice and long aftertaste with some hops. Very nice!

lord_totenkopf (314) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 12, 2011
On tap at ’Csak a jó sör’. 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.

tiong (7268) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 9, 2011
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.

2.3
Finn (7547) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2011
Flaske 0,5l. Gave fra Rune. Drukket hjemme 19 Sep 11. Gyldenbrun. Veldig uklar. Ikke pen. Høyt luftig skum som varte noen minutter. God hveteølaroma. Sitrus o.s.v. Veldig søt på smak. Litt plommer, litt rosiner. Mye kullsyre. Antydning til bitterhet i ettersmaken. Skuffende.
