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.

I had been wanting to try this for a ling time and today I finally picked up a bottle. I was expecting a great beer and my expectations were met and exceeded. Pours hazy gold color with a clean white head that hangs around for a long time and leaves lacing on the glass. Smells-Bananas and clove. Tastes-Similar to the smell. Fantastic balance of sweetness and spice. Banana/bubblegum tastes up front. Some floral notes but this is for the most part a sweet beer. Mouthfeel-Decent carbonation with a dry finish. Overall- Another phenomenal beer from one of my favorite breweries. Must try.

A absolutely great German beer! A beautifully done Weizenbock. A Hefeweizen times two. Same rich clove, bubblegum nuances. Can't go wrong with this bier. Prost! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,5l Bottle. Pours hazy yellow color with mediumish head. Flavor is heavy on bananas and sweet malts, added with some spices, alcohol, citrusy fruitness. Very well balanced overall, medium to think body, spicy alcoholy aftertaste that lasts for a while.

kaserov (735) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 5, 2017
Color amarillo brillante, opaco debido a su turbidez, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación alta. Textura oleosa y efervescente (la efervescencia está perfectamente medida y ayuda al beber en vez de molestar). Aroma a cítricos, pan, plátano, muchas especias, levadura. Invita a meter la nariz en el líquido. En boca hay cítricos, mucho pan, plátano, especias. Buen balance entre dulzor y acidez. Ligerísimo amargor final acompañado de especias. Riquísimo postgusto especiado y fresco.

Bottle from Macon Beverage Outlet. Hazy yellow with white head and plenty of carbonation. Banana and citrus nose, and sweet tart malty taste that lingers. Soft palate from the carbonation. A little sweet but very sophisticated.

Fles. Licht van kleur, mooi witte kraag. Sprankelend en fruitig. Gevaarlijk als dit echt 7,7% is, want het drinkt lekker door. Geen normale Weizen, echt een andere, eigen smaak.

Jaune orangée trouble, notes blé, levure, agrume doux, orange, banane (que je n’aime pas), finale douce. Pas vraiment désagréable mais pas vraiment mon truc. Bouteille 50cl achetée chez Dix sept sur Vin, Noisy-le-Grand, France, bue le 03/05/2017.

nathanvc (493) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2017
On tap at Weihenstephaner, Hackescher Markt, Berlin. Pours cloudy yellow with a foamy, lasting, white head. The aroma contains wheat, yeast, overripe fruits, clove and spices. It tastes light to medium sweet and medium spicy bitter. Alcoholic finish, fizzy carbonation, creamy texture. I prefer the regular Hefeweißbier.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2017 Mooie weizener - een bock - met onderscheidende kenmerken. Aroma van abrikoos en tarwe. Beide komen ook in de smaak terug. Een diepe zoetige doch frisse smaak.

JefVerstraete (3351) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2017
Bottle from Geers. Hazy yellow colour, creamy white foam. Nose of banana, sweet malts. Taste is sweet malts, lots of banana, yeasty, rather sweet. Not bad.
