From my tasting notes: It poured a cloudy golden color with a nice full creamy head and plenty of citrus on the nose. The taste had the signature German wheat beer tastes of banana, sweet candy, and a bit of citrus. The Vitus had a very creamy mouthfeel that spoke to its craftsmanship and elegantly balanced tasting experience. This was a great weizenbock and one that surprised me a bit as I didn't know what to expect. The Vitus is a beer to look for and one that will pleasantly surprise any beer lover.

Bottle, lightly swirled and poured into a tulip glass. Beer pours a hazy golden color with three plus fingers of fluffy bright white head. The pillowy head dissipates after a few minutes with some light lacing. Good amount of carbonation streaming up from the bottom of the glass.

Classic aromas of clove, banana, bubble gum, lemon peel, biscuit malts.

Taste follows the nose, nice yeast spiciness with clove and white pepper with fruity ester banana and bubble gum flavors. A touch of lemon with plenty of biscuit malt sweetness to round it out. Finishes clean with some light banana and clove flavors barely lingering on the tongue.

Light body with ample crisp carbonation that refreshes the tongue with each sip.

A classic Weizenbock that shows real depth and real class in the mouthfeel and use of hefe notes and the deeper darker aspects of the bock. I can't really find much to fault in this beer for the style as it is redolent of bananas and dark fruit with a luscious mouthfeel that really makes you want the beer never to end.
