330ml bottle, marked "9343," poured into a hefeweizen serving glass. I'm watching the Maple Leafs and the Penguins play as I review this.

A - Beatiful, hazy straw color with a light, airy white head of about a half inch. Not sure how it could look any nicer.

S - A mix of fresh baked dough, banana, and a buttery yeast. A little peppery, a little "bottle-y."

T - It tastes like it smells. There's a bready, doughy quality at first, and as it goes down a little peppery and "bottle-y." Some cloves. Finishes with some great maltiness, almost overwhelming.

M - Rich, velvety mouthfeel, still providing a little bit of "bite" with the pepper.

Overall I would call this a great Weizenbock, in my little experience with the style. Doesn't get much better than this for a drinkable beer with an above average alcohol content. Truly a testament to the brewing practices of Germany.

Very challenging beer, like many of this style. Still, a rewarding one. I would only put Schneider's Aventinus above Vitus for this style. Surprisingly long shelf life, so don't worry too much about the best by date.
