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.

Koelschtrinker (18404) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 3, 2011
Milder Antrunk, fruchtig, deutlich aber nicht bertrieben hefig. Ab dem Mittelteil malziger, dann wieder fruchtiger. Zum Ende erneut malzig weich, hier bockartiger, etwas dunkler, leicht cremig. Gut aufeinander abgestimmt, zum Ende auch etwas herb. Sehr sffig!

Just awesome. I thought this was going to be one of the weakest from this brewery and was a punch! nice weizen taste and features. NOt annoying in taste although strong in alcohol. Excellent head and shape.

Defreni (3081) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2011
Flaske: Orangegul uklar l med et stort skumhoved. Klassisk hefe weiss i udseende. Duften er igen tydelig weiss med en god del banan fra gren og tydelig hvede. Smagen er lidt mindre banan prget med et stort bid fra alkoholen. Fin fin l.

Pours a cloudy golden with sizable white head. Spice, wheat and fruit on the nose. A flavorful, balanced spicy wheat beer with a slight bitter finish. Prost!

Thanks Pacond for joining me in my ticking quest and purchasing a fantastic bottle of a fantastic beer. Really light on the spices and booze, really heavy on the banana esters and wheat malt sweetness. Owns.

Brandman (2901) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 21, 2011
Golden hazy body, white head. Aroma of alcoholic banana and some wheaty bread. Aroma is big, but the flavour does not keep up to it. Still one of my all time favourites.

Draft at Makke. Yes, in Italy. Cloudy variegated gold color, solid white head. Aroma of bubblegum squared! Taste is sour grapefruit, lemon. Nice.

I think there is some lemon and banana going on in here. I loved the whole drink. I actually almost got into a fight while drinking this beer, but I was able to keep my cool because of the jovial nature that this beer brought to my late night.

50cl bottle. It pours golden and unusually there is a hint of green near the bottom of the glass. The head is excellent and there is a steady stream of bubbles. The nose has bananas and a sweet toffee note. The taste has more of the bananas, some toffee and perhaps a little ginger. The palate has a very big structure, a creamy texture but unusually it refreshes at he end. Overall, this is probably my favourite weiss beer.
