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.

Pours a hazy yellow, 3 fingers or so of head as it goes into a stein, but that’s what I wanted. Aromas of banana, bubblegum, and clove of course, but with a bit of dough behind it. Taste is doughy with some more banana. Little hints of dark fruit around the edges. Very very velvety texture. Pleasant. Nice.

Nice hay colour with wheaty nose and some nice malty notes. Lots of sweetness and some caramel taste with also cerial notes. Palate short but typical wheat type.

Another wondrous German beer from these Weihenstephaner folks. It has a rich wheaty almost raspberry whiff to it. It is a UTI pee darkness in color. The taste is complex and refreshing with a strong wheat fruit complex duking it out for the title while a sneaky sugar milk goop bottom comes up in the end on the aftertaste. It is delightful and pungent, a classic beer to savor. Good for kicking off the end of the great Halt and Catch Fire while your boo boo dances seductively in the doorway to a dank ass Tom Petty Stevie Nicks duet blaring from stock speakers.

One of my favorite, it's a really good beer and so much better when draft.

Aromă dulce-acrișoară, mult malț de grâu, drojdii, fructe galbene răscoapte, puțin banane și zeamă de porumb fiert. Gust dulce-acrișor, mai bine zis foarte plăcut dulce-acrișor, cu mult malț de grâu îndulcit, fructe galbene coapte, malț de grâu, drojdii, pâine albă, note de caramelă și dulceață de piersice. Foarte bună.

ardeo (539) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2017
Bottle 1/2 l. Blonde un peu trouble avec une belle mousse blanche persistant sur les parois du verre. Nez : levures, herbes, citron, banane, grain (froment) ... cela me rappelle un peu les "Saison". Bouche : vraiment "spéciale" pour un belge habitué aux 'Dubbel', 'Tripel', pils et maintenant aux 'IPA' et autres 'Imperial stout' ! Très végétale en bouche mais le fruité est également présent : fruits (abricot, banane, citron), malts et épices (poivre et surtout clou de girofle). La finale est amère et dure longtemps sur le clou de girofle. Bon ce bock. Very nice. Pracht, dieses deutsche Bier

Daboch (164) - Gdansk, POLAND - OCT 1, 2017
Piwo koloru złotego, lekko mętne. Piana solidna, biała. W aromacie banany, wiśnie, rodzynki, słod pszeniczny. W smaku banany, pszenica, trochę cytrusów. Bardzo ciekawy weizenbock
