Weihenstephaner Vitus

Poured from a 16.9 ounce bottle into a Weissbier vase. Served chilled...

A) The beer is a pale gold to deep amber. There was a good two fingers of fluffy head, which dissipated to a dusting.

S) Light malty sweetness. A bit fruity, mostly banana. A hint of clove. Excellent aroma...

T) Quite near the nose. A bit of malty sweetness and some wheat. A pleasant fruit flavor that is a little bit of apple and some banana. My goodness the alcohol so well hidden in this beer, it's hard to believe it's nearly 8% ABV.

M) Medium bodied with a fair amount of carbonation. This is just remarkably easy to drink. Very smooth.... Very refreshing.... A very nice clean aftertaste, that has just a little warmth to it.

O) And absolutely delightful beer. I'd probably love it even more during the summer on the patio. This reminded me of New Glarus Dancing Man Wheat, which is fantastic. This might even be a little better. I can't recommend this one enough.

A- Very cloudy pale peach colored body with a huge, frothy white head. Tons of carbonation bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass, with some light coming through.

S- Citurs, dark dried fruits, wheat, some banana, apples, sweet malt.

T- Lots of sweet fruity flavors coming through. More sweet malt flavors than wheat. Almost tastes like a combination of a hefeweizen, tripel and a helles. Very interesting combination of flavors. No hint of alcohol.

M- Medium bodied, medium carbonation, full flavored.

O- Very good beer. Not has wheaty as most weizenbocks I have had, but plenty of flavor.

4.21/5  rDev -1.2%

Appearance: It pours a beautiful golden body with a big three finger head. Retention and lacing appear average.

Smell: Wheat, spicy glove and banana notes are noticed right away. Sweet malts and corn can be detected as the beer warms.

Taste: It essentially follows the nose. Clove and wheat flavors hit the tongue first followed by touches of banana and lemon s as the beer goes down the throat. A dark fruit sweetness, perhaps plum, is noticeable near the end of the flavor cycle. The aftertaste is spicy. Alcohol is well hidden.

Mouth feel: It is medium bodied with a good blend of carbonation and dryness, highly refreshing and drinkable for a beer with such a bold ABV.

Overall: Weihenstephan has yet again produced a well balanced brew. There may be one or two better weizenbocks out there but this is still a world class beer.
