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.

Dorqui (2213) - Brescia, ITALY - AUG 21, 2009
Bottled. Creamy, voluminous and adherent head, optimal duration. Orange clearly color, much hazy and veiled with optimal and fine fizzy aspect. Intense and alcoholic aroma, with notes of orange, banana, stum, liqueur. Much fraught taste and with strong alcoholic impact. Persistent and bitter on the end.

FCBF 09. What a nice treat at the brew fest to find a weizen bock! Hazy, orange, very nice looking. Banana/clove, big yeast component. Very enjoyable.

Beerona97 (2398) - Washington, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Cloudy straw yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is banana, clove, bubblegum and other things of a yeasty nature. Taste is delicious wheat and yeast but not overly spicy. Hints of ripe sweet fruit like peach and pear. Very rich body with juicy malt and a smooth finish.

Enjoyed with my mates from the Barossa Brewers Club this beer pours mit-hefe and has the banana, clove aroma of the hefe-weisen but its not as pronounced. The palate is chewy and rich and the higher alcohol gives the beer a juiciness. Very nice beer!

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Pours a lasting read of white head with a hazy, deep straw body. Smells of earth and yeast. Flavor is earth, dough, banana. Pretty big body.

Bottle. Pours an opaque gold color w/ a nice frothy white head. Aroma of clove on pour and heavy flavor of clove once imbibed. Medium bodied. Has a bit of a bitter finish. Overall a very nice brew.

Butters (4049) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Hazy yellow pour withquickly fading offwhite ring of head. Aroma of sweet wheat and a very bready yeast, but not quite belgian, more like day old bread. Tastes of alcohol esters, rose petals, wheat, and a hint of banana, but hardly noticable. A distinct peppery spice on the finish. Not bad, but not my favorite from these guys.

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2009
The sort of effortless quality that a brewer can toss off after several centuries of practice. A great-looking beer - cloudy lemon colour with a huge wash of foam. The striking aroma of dusty wheatsacks induced a Proustian scent memory of summer childhoods spent on a friends farm. Also mashed banana and clove. Lovely creamy body. Very well integrated for a 7.7% abv bock - would never have guessed it was that strong. Sticky banana and wheat malt with an acidic finish. Quenching and moreish. (500ml bottle from Leura Cellars. BB 20/9/09)
