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.

AROMA: orange, mango, hint of nutmeg? APPEARANCE: pale, frothy, hazy, white foam, TASTE: medium sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, PALATE: medium body, creamy, lively, astringent, long finish, bitter, OVERALL: Well-balanced tastes, with a bias towards sweet and the spicy fruitiness makes this a nice Christmas Weizen.

ozzatoadisback (120) - ITALY - JAN 21, 2017
Slightly darker than golden, not too hazy for the style. Classic big and solid weizen head, good retention and some lacing. Aroma screams banana, and i mean vividly fresh banana, with some phenolic/clove notes in the background. Its very intense and fresh though a bit monothematic. Taste follows the aroma, obviously with dominant sweetness, nicely attenuated by a slight hint of tartness and a thouch of warming alcohol feel. Again, intense but a bit monotonous. Medium bodied with good but wonderfully soft-textured carbonation, making this an easy and refreshing but still pleasantly creamy mouthfeel. A straightforward banana weizen, and an excellent one at that.

From meny; pours hazy bright golden with a giant white head; aroma is banana with some phenolic notes in the background and maybe a hint of alcohol, smells somehow like Belgian yeast; taste is medium sweet, fruity banana, slightly tart, fades into gentle spicy clove with some bitterness, very smooth and hides the alcohol quite well; creamy mouthfeel with medium to high carbonation and quite light body

Bijl (362) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2016
Goudgeel, troebel, witte schuimkraag en iets langzaam bewegend koolzuur. Aroma: Tarwemouten, banaan, kruidnagel, bubblegum....typische Duitse hefe. Verder ook fruitige tonen van abrikoos. Smaak: Brooddeeg, tarwe, zoetig, banaan, kruidnagel, en een lichte zoetige alcohol kick. Licht bitter gehopt en ergens ook een heel klein zuurtje. Volle body, zacht en romig en in de afdronk meer zoet dan bitter. Zeer goed!
