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.

One of the best wheat beers I’ve had. Complex yet smooth. Fruit, spice, grain, yeast, and slight malty notes, all while carrying a heavy ABV. Very impressive.

Pours a golden, wheat color. Poured witha very large white head in a lager glass. Has a spicy smell (sounds odd but that’s what I got). Somewhat sweet taste maybe even a tiny bit of spice. Light to medium body, but more on the medium side. This is a great, great winter beer for people that don’t like the heavy, roast, chocolate, and/or malty beers.

ReAle (120) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 25, 2011
Weisse davvero molto buona, tra le migliori mai assaggiate. Dorata scura, classico aspetto torbido per nulla invitante, sufficientemente schiumosa. Aroma penetrante di frumento con note fruttate. In bocca bella elegante ma con carattere, amarognola e acidula, buon corpo. Nonostante non apprezzi il genere, devo dire che questa birra mi è piaciuta parecchio.

Pours a hazy light orange with a large frothy white head. Aroma is sweet, with fruits and bananas. Full bodies with dries fruits, malts, and bananas. Finish is mildly citrus with spices lingering. Very refreshing and well balanced!

Oakes (18756) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 22, 2011
Hazy straw-gold with a thick head. Alcoholic aroma has lots of esters, yeast, apples and pears. Sweet, slightly candyish with banana, light spice, hints of alcohol. Finish shows a little bit of softness. Nice balance, despite a somewhat rough aroma.

Serving: 500 ml. bottle from Wegmans. It pours a hazy, lighter gold color with a pillowy, white head. Good head retention and decent lacing. The nose is a mix of light wheat notes, some banana, yeast, and clove. The flavor mirrors the nose with a bit of alcohol present and a richer body and mouthfeel than it’s weaker cousins. Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation leading to a short to medium, crisp finish. Very nice indeed.

I poured some of my 16.9 oz bottle into a tall pub glass... The beer was a lemonade yellow color with a huge 4 inch head that was white and foamy. It smells strongly of lemon, banana, clove and wheat. Very pleasant. The taste is strong on clove and spice along with banana, lemon and wheat. There is a bit of yeast in the aftertaste. The beer is light with a ton of soft, bubbly carbonation, it is just a tad warming but I would have never guessed it to be 7.7%. No flaws in this one, it will go well with my german sausage links I just grilled.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2012 50cl bottle shared with friends. Decent white head. Cloudy white beer. Quite decent.
