Weihenstephaner Vitus - Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan. Poured into the brewery's Weizen glass that game with the gift set, this has got a two finger thick white, finely carbonated head, droopy lacing, and a golden hazy body. Very appealing to the eyes, I must say.

I smell very crisp malts, along with the classic clove, bubblegum, and banana ester characteristics of true made Bavarian brews.

This beer's taste is quite similar and easy going for a "strong" style. This is a nice refreshing taste I could appreciate any time of the year. I detect a bit of apricot in the aftertaste as well.

The mouthfeel is lively and crisp. I'm sure using the Weizen glass vs a standard pint glass is a contributing factor, but proper glassware is always ideal and I've been personally guilty in my first few reviews.

Overall, a knockout 4.5 for Weihenstephaner Vitus - Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan. even though this came as part of a gift set, I will pursue this while its still available during this month.

Pours a hazy golden color with a big, fluffy white head. Aroma of banana, bubblegum, citrus and spice. Taste follows the nose with banana, bubblegum, bread and a spice. Mouthfeel is nice for a hefe, with the wheat smoothness and a great effervescence. Overall a great beer, an "imperial " hefeweizen of sorts. Definitely world class and worthy of every award.

Amazed to find it in Lagos, Nigeria....half liter bottle poured into a tulip glass; cloudy amber color with thick 2 finger foam; smells of cloves banana bread and huge weizenbock arroma- improves as it warms; taste is ballanced and HUGE; overall - going back to the store to buy them all-call me greedy, but life is short!

This is a premium, incredible beer with "world best beer" awards. The color is a golden yellow with a slight, even haziness (a tulip beer glass showcases the beauty of the color and pleasant aroma) and light, white frothy head. The smell is lightly banana, pear, clove and warmed bread. The taste is balanced and smooth with a depth of a light pear/banana flavor amidst the wheat/rye texture. It is smooth, clean and rich in taste. It is excellent with a heavy breakfast of meat and potatoes, delightful with a hot soup and buttered bread on a winter day and compliments every meat or fish meal I have tried. I highly recommend this beer. It has a taste, quality, consistency and depth of color, taste and smell that is not encountered often in the world. It is a distinct beer. The beer, as it warms, from the refrigerator releases more subtle flavor and richness of taste. This is a beer for special occasions and a reward for a job well done.
