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.

Világosabb narancssárgás szín, és kemény, hosszan tartó hab a külső jellemzői. Igazán szép! Az illatában ott a szokásos banán, valamint kevés mangó és ananász, továbbá citrusok, enyhe fűszerességgel megtoldva. Az íze telt, jól érezhető a búzamaláta édessége, a banán, vanília és citrusok. A lecsengése keserédes, az utóíze pedig hosszan tart, kicsit olyan, mint egy jobbfajta sodó íze. Az alkohol szerintem eléggé rejtve van benne. Az ilyen sörök azok, amikre igazán érdemes áldozni!

inbirraveritas (1528) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 6, 2010
Bottle from „Csakajósör”-store, Bp. Poured a hazy orange and its rocky, imposant white head remains at last fingerthick on the top of the brew. Tart nose of bananas and citrus. Tasteing begins moderate sharp, mouthfeel is slick. Sweet-tart aroma of citrus, grain and light clove spicyness, the flavour brings bananas, lemon and alcohol along. The tart end is of citrus, light spice and alcohol pushes through, which remains in a spicy-fruity aftertaste. The alcohol’s a bit obtruding, aside from this it’s well enjoyable.

Nickls (2417) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Bottle. Bright, vibrant yellow-orange and very cloudy with a pretty white frothy head. Banana, citrus, clove, and a little tangy in the aroma..deep hefe qualities done well. Banana foremost in the flavor followed by a lesser degree of clove; dark chocolate and apples associated with others in the range is missing here, but still damn good. Medium body with sparkly carbonation. Good brew.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2010
Bottle from Csakajosor.hu. Poured with a golden color and an off-white, creamy foam. Deliciously fruity aroma of banana, mango, vanilla, ginger with just the right spices. Grainy sweet taste in a medium dense body and medium carbonation. Yeasty, sweet aftertaste. Complex, excellent!
