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.

This poured a cloudy yellow color with a large white head. Aroma was of lots of spices, mainly clove and some citrusy notes too. Flavor was very spicey and yeasty with notes of orange peel/citrus and aa good bit of banana too. Good offering for the style.

A-pours a cloudy straw yellow with a creamy white head leaving a decent lace on the glass. S-the nose has a fair bit of fruit yeast with some light notes of spice to it. a fair bit of pear, green apple, lemon, hints of banana. there is some light toasted bread with hints of yeasty spice in the back. T-the taste isn’t quite as full as the nose. the fruitiness is still there, light caramel malt and some toasted bread up front, the banana, pear, and lemon come in behind with just a touch of white peppery spice in the back. M-good body, medium chewy body with a slick crisp finish and assertive carbonation. D-this is very tasty, the flavor is slightly watered down compared to the nose but still extremely solid. great flavors working well together with a touch of alcohol in the finish. I like it a lot!

Hazy golden amber with a robust white head. Tons of vanilla wheat malt in the nose with huge banana clove notes and a yummy wheaty caramel presence. The flavor holds more sweet wheat malt with bread, caramel, banana, and clove. Medium to full mouthfeel with supple carbonation.
