A. Dark straw color. Opaque because of the cloudiness. Aggressive pour yielded a big-time frothy head that retains nicely. Thick laces. A very good looking beer.

S. Barnhouse funk. Cloves, banana peels, wheat, and grain. Yeast and biscuits. Some sweetness in the form of honey.

T. This sucker is sweet. Flavors of cloves, bubble gum, banana peels, and Belgium yeast. Similar to a yeast roll with some butter and honey.

M. Full body, fairly smooth (diminishes b/c of the sweetness), high carbonation. Actually leaves a clean palate.

O. I was detracted from the high level of sweetness that I found this beer to have. Generally a good beer, but it seems not as well crafted as some of their others. Their Hefe is tip-top shelf, but this falls short. Worth a try but I will likely pass unless in a share.

From my tasting notes: It poured a cloudy golden color with a nice full creamy head and plenty of citrus on the nose. The taste had the signature German wheat beer tastes of banana, sweet candy, and a bit of citrus. The Vitus had a very creamy mouthfeel that spoke to its craftsmanship and elegantly balanced tasting experience. This was a great weizenbock and one that surprised me a bit as I didn't know what to expect. The Vitus is a beer to look for and one that will pleasantly surprise any beer lover.
