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.

Drank this at the Berlin Bar in Melbourne. Not normally a bock drinker or a wheat beer drinker, do a bock posing as a wheat beer was a brace choice. The intricacy of the palette is something that's often missing but in this case it's there in bounds. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Heidelbeer (33) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2017
Big off white, creamy and average long lasting head. Orange golden unclear beer. Aroma is quite intense and very pleasant. Floral notes with ripe banana, clove and yeast. Taste is well balanced and I have the impression I taste everything the same time. Its wheaty, yeasty, sweet, sour and slightly bitter while creamy in texture. Finish is medium to long and average intense. At the end a sour and slightly bitter refreshing impression is staying. Carbonation is average and easy to enjoy. I live this beer a lot and it might be the best Weizenbock on the market.

JuanCC (94) - Valencia, SPAIN - MAY 15, 2017
Vierte en color amarillo oro velado pero brillante. Espuma muy generosa y persistente. En nariz es de complejidad media-alta con notas de pltano y manzana entre las afrutadas y clavo entre las especiadas. La sensacin en nariz es dulce y algo alcohlica. Entre los sabores bsicos destaca el dulzor (como de vainilla) y algo de acidez, as como un amargor inicialmente bajo pero creciente. Es de cuerpo medio y textura sedosa. Ms clida que refrescante y algo alcohlica.

TedE (1248) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2017
500ml bottle into weizen glass. Pours hazy effervescent amber with obligatory towering white head. Nose is banana, cloves and cinnamon. A thousand tiny bubbles persist. Slick sweet mouthfeel. Finish is fruity with alcohol and malt. Interesting, like a souped-up hefe. Goes well with cake.
