Poured from the 16.9 oz bottle into a tulip.

A: Is a hazy golden yellow. Like dark straw with tick white head that dissipates leaving a lace that slides down the glass.

S: Gives off a very apparent aroma of banana bread that must come from the yeast. Absolutely one of the most inviting beers I have ever smelled.

T: Again the banana bread is up front with a bit of a spice on the way down. Very drinkable at 7.7%, I'm having no trouble downing the bottle.

M: Spicy from the carbonation on the tip, but ends up quite velvety and smooth as it finishes. I hate to beat a dead horse here, but so much like drinking fresh banana bread!

O: Just a wonderful weizenbock. The banana esters and velvety mouthfeel make what should be a boozy brew very drinkable. 10/10 will drink again.

A- Similar to the weissbier surprisingly a little more yellow. Nice and hazy, golden, but still translucent.

S- Again, similar to the weissbier, but a more "earthy" smell to be honest.

T- Refreshing, again earthy, very wheaty but lacking the banana notes of its Weihenstephaner relatives.

M- Crisp, clean mouthfeel that doesn't linger around and ruin the exceptional taste at the end.

O- Tasty beer, my first time trying it and I was impressed to say the least.

Just chillin hard after going a lil too deep on New Years Eve and this Vitus is treating Raul quite nice. Glowing a gorgeous yellowish orange like the Newport Coast when Raul paddles out at 6 AM, this thang is alive. Taste is a bit funky and tart like when my baby mama gives me some after brushing with Colgate.

Yeah, like Raul's dentist recommends, Raul wouldn't mind having a Vitus two times a day.

Pours a clean, light straw golden, with a massive head of white carbonation. Lace is minimal, oddly. Maybe it was my glassware.

Aroma is bubblegum, clove, spices and malt grains. Absolutely perfect -- aromatic and appealing.

Taste is sweet up front, with a definite spicy character. I get honey, wheat, clove, and bubblegum. Complex, flavorful, and very refreshingly session-worthy, despite the relatively high 7.7% ABV!

A delicious brew, and highest marks.
