Pours a lovely golden straw color with a little haziness.
Pristine white head is lush but dissipates quickly. My girlfriend commented on how beautiful it looked. I agree
The aromas of banana, clove, citrus, wheat, and earth jump out of the glass.
Much of the aromas translate to the palate as well. Candied bananas, honey, wheat, earth, and baking spices are pronounced and lovely.
Incredibly smooth with light carbonation makes this a very easy drinker at 8%
Very highly recommended if you want a classic Weizenbock. It has been a while since I had a good German beer, can't imagine a much better way to get back into the lovely brews of the Rhineland than with this Vitus Weizenbock. Very pleased

Pours a cloudy straw yellow color with a white head that dissipates fairly quickly.

Smell is very lemony, with a hint of yeast and mown grass.

Taste starts out with citrus, more lemon than anything. Also picking up banana and clove notes. Has maybe just a hint of pepper at the finish.

Smooth as silk feel to this, with the carbonation giving just a little bite on the tongue.

A very nice, very drinkable beer. Goes down smooth and easy, and has a lot of flavor to it. Very much a summer beer, it is light and flavorful.
