4.41/5  rDev +3.5%

Poured in a Weizen glass. I turned the capped bottle upside down several times, then turned it around on a table horizontally a number of times, to mix in the yeast.

In the weizen glass, I poured 2/3 of the beer slowly, then shaking the bottle slightly, I poured the rest in over the top of the glass.

The result: a beautiful 4+ finger head. The color was apricot honey.

There was a strong and luscious apricot, spice and clove aroma from the head. The consistency of the head when tasted is like meringue.

The mouth feel is pleasantly carbonated and finishes well on the back of the tongue.

The taste is intense apricot, clove and spice. Sometimes it is difficult to discern different tastes and aromas because of the intensity and the incredible balance in the beer.

Overall, a brilliant wheat beer- one of the best in the world.

a: orange, cloudy, nice head, stays around, never goes away. Doesn't really get any better.

s: Banana Bread, just banana bread. Some vanilla, nuts, oats.

t: just like the smell but a little stronger. This is liquid Banana Bread. Delicious.

mf: creamy, high carbonation. Works great.

Overal, very, very tasty. Has a nice banana character to it, but then fades a little quickly. No alcohol detected.

Weihenstephaner Vitus @ 7.7% , a Weizenbock served from a 500 ml bottle purchased for $5.30

A-pour is a light hazy gold with a off white head that has a tight fine lace leaving a solid film along the weizen glass

S-banana , wheat , some hints of citrus in the background

T-sweet tasting , very complex

MF-ok/good carbonation , medium body , easy drinking beer even with the 7.7% ABV

Ov-a classic beer from the worlds oldest brewery , yes I'd buy again

sampled alongside 2 other Weihenstephan beers (Hefeweissbier & Hefeweissbier Dunkel)
