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.

Palme (4398) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2011
0.5l bottle. Pours a heavy clouded light orange body with a massive big and fluffy white head. Aroma is caramel-sweetish and kinda yeasty with lots and lots of wheat, some spices and its also quite malty. Average to lively carbonation, medium to full-bodied and it has a mild sticky to oily mouthfeel. Flavors are also quite wheaty, surprisingly wheaty actually. Hints of orange zest and cloves, light sweet but definitely not to sweet. Nice light warming tones in the finish and a hint of alcohol in the aftertaste. Have been waiting a long while to tasting this, and the Vitus did most certainly not disappoint me. A good weizen bock!

Bottled. A blonde beer with a good white head. Good banana and bubblegum in the aroma with a bit of extra alcohol strength. A big mouthfeel. Banana and clove. Definite bruised banana. Extra alcohol. Pretty damn fine.

Grima (2370) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2011
The beer in the glass is golden yellow and cloudy, with a beautiful white head. It smells sweet yeasty, minimal alcoholic, very spicy. Starts very yeasty-sweet, slightly tart accents. A strong spiciness comes through. The middle part has very much aromas of tropical fruits (mango, passion fruit ...), again with a lot of spicy yeast aroma. Finish has some tropical fruit aromas as well, it is alcoholic warming. Delicious Weizenbock!

Bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with a big puffy white head. Aroma of banana, lemon, and clove. Tastes pleasantly sweet up front and finishes a little sour. Biting carbonation and light body. Alcohol is slightly detectable. Overall a solid, easy to drink beer.

Trb-helle Farbe, hnlich einem guten HW. Fruchtig und hefig im Geruch. Geschmack fruchtig mit Malztnen und Gewrznelkenaroma. Dabei leicht pfeffrig nach Alkohol, aber nicht aufdringlich. Erst im langen Finish wrmend alkoholisch. Ein guter Weizenbock.Test vom 25.8.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

fiercepanda (615) - Missouri, USA - SEP 16, 2011
A cloudy dark yellow color with a medium head. The aroma is classic wheat, lots of yeast and citrus with a hint of bubblegum. The flavor is wheat, clove, and yeast with a nice dose of citrus, a very refreshing taste. Medium bodied and one of the best, cleanest tasting wheat beers Ive had, just all around good flavor.

500ml gushing bottle shared with Stefan and Elisabeth. Decent white head, pale golden body. Aroma of wheat, fruits, and lighter traces of spices. Clove, dusty hops, ripe banana, and yeasty fruitiness in the taste character. Sweet and tart endnotes. Medium bodied. OK drinking (Troms, 22.08.2011).

500 ml bottle from BevMo online (Pleasanton). Nose is big ripe bananas, yeast, and wheaty bread, with hints of cloves.Hazy yellow with a big pale yellow, lightly lacing head. Flavor is very bready wheat, bananas, white pepperiness, and very light bitterness. Excellent! Wish I had a case!
