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.

Ungstrup (37598) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2007
Bottled. An unclear light orange beer with a huge beige head. The aroma is very sweet and very wheaty, but also with quite strong notes of citrus, and some hay. The flavor is sweet and very wheaty combined with notes of citrus and banana. The mouthfeel is quite sparkling, but also with a thick alcoholic body. I think darker malts would make this better.

omhper (25126) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 28, 2008
Draught at Bishop’s Arms SoFo, Stockholm. Cloudy dark yellow, small head. Strong banana aroma with a touch of toffee. Sweet and malty, fruity and near full bodied with some caramel and lots of banana esters. Alcohol is there, but acts in the background. Low bitterness. A warming, fruity beer, feels just as a ramped up hefeweizen.

Euston Tap. Keg. Very hazy gold beer, little white head. Palate is smooth with fine carbonation. Sweet wheaty malt, Sweet floral bubblegum. Smooth finish. I like a sweet beer but a sweet Weizen Bock doesn’t seem right. Perhaps this is a wrong-un. Bordering on cloying.

Draft at Makke. Yes, in Italy. Cloudy variegated gold color, solid white head. Aroma of bubblegum squared! Taste is sour grapefruit, lemon. Nice.
