Pours a lovely light straw. The color white if wine only hay and with fat head of white foam that falkls slowly enough. The nose is sutlry fruit. The stuff your grandmother is putting in a pie. Apple skin, baked pear, light banana, clove, honey, spice a bit of cinnamon. Oh my stars. The taste is luscious Ripe and succulent fruit.l The apple skin crisp and light, the pear baked and sweet together with the clove. The honey malt The tall and crisp whet malt. That stands in the glass like a strange sentinel. Golden glowing flaky like flakes in the cereal bowl but sweet and soft too. OH! The banana light ans smooth. The mouthfeel is fruity, crisp, creamy . well carbonated and this finishes dry and with so much fruit you cannot stand to believe it’s not under a pie crust.

Pours from the bottle a hazy light gold with a creamy white head sustained by the carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass. The nose is filled with wheat, banana, cloves and spice (cardamom ?). Creamy wheat and bread predominate the taste, but you get plenty of fruit and spice too. Medium silky mouth. Just a superb beer.

Weihenstephaner Vitus has a very thick, spongy, white, crackling head, a hazy (which gets even more so, when the bottom contents are swished & poured in), yellow-gold appearance, with strong bubble streams, and some lacing left behind. The aroma is strong and pungent: banana bread, banana pudding, yeast spice, some coriander, and some white wheat bread. Taste is of banana bread, banana pudding, some spice, sugar, and a touch of alcohol. Mouthfeel is fluffy and medium, and Weihenstephaner Vitus finishes semi-wet, easy drinking, and just a tad hot. Great stuff!
