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.

Impresionante lo sabrosa que es esta cerveza con mucha banana vainilla ahumado y sumamente floral. Equilibrada y refrescante. Un manjar.

ljthiessen (1166) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 8, 2016
Bottle. Cloudy golden amber with a small white head. Aroma is sweet and soft, some citrus and banana, a touch of grain and candy notes. Taste is sweet citrus as well, some wheat malt, banana and candy too. A bit on the sweet side, but a bit of an older bottle so likely hops have faded. Still quite nice.

Bierdimpfe (530) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2016
Cloudy golden color with a good amount of activity. Thick frothy white 3 finger sparkling head, lasting around 10 to 15 minutes, with average legs. Aroma of pleasant wheathy sweet bread. Flavors of belgian yeasty caramel, vinous estery fruits, sweet malts, banana, floral and herbal spices. Thick sugary fruitiness with minimal sharpness. Smooth full thick body with a perfect amount of carbonation. Medium strength to strong finish, ending with some powerful citrus yeasty spices, and faint smoky clove. Overall an excellent quality craft offering great flavors, and a warming and refreshing feel. Although not very well intensified being highly spicy but it does calm down over time. Faint diacetyl feel.

muzzlehatch (4875) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2016
500 ml bottle from Cork Keg & Spirits in Rockford, IL, served at cellar temp in a Weihenstephan glass. I dont have a big glassware collection, so its cool to once in a while be able to have the proper vessel. This pours a pale hazy gold, big white fluffy head that dies off fairly quickly leaving a mostly clean glass...expected banana-clove nose, hints of caramel and vanilla, just a touch of alcohol noted; a bit weak at first but grows quite expressive after 5 minutes or so and some nice grassy, vaguely farmy notes appear as well...body is very soft and the malt presence is just enormous, this is one of the fullest mouthfeels on a weizenbock - or any kind of wheat beer - Ive ever experienced, its like a wheat milkshake...lightly to moderately sweet throughout, moderately tart, doughy (in just the right way), with just a little bit of warming alcohol and pepper at the finish. Im surprised that it took me so long to get around to this, but Im sure glad I did; while it probably doesnt replace Aventinus among commonly-available examples of the style, its a good competitor and I suspect Ill be getting a few more this fall.
