My favorite German brewery meets quite possibly my favorite German style. Rejoice!

APPEARANCE: Pours into my Aventinus glass a very hazy pale gold. The head is massive and immeasurable since it required multiple pours just to get the beer to fit in the glass. It does drop fairly quickly though, settling out at just a full surface covering.

SMELL: The aroma is a bit boozy, but brings it strong with wonderful weissbier smells as well. The wheat is light and bready and the phenols are tremendously clovey. There's even a sneaky chocolate-like component to this despite what the color might tell you.

TASTE: It begins on 2 ends of the spectrum as light, fluffy wheat pairs with a pretty significant dose of alcohol. This continues with the wheat building up a slight robustness before giving way to sweet bananas on the finish. However the alcohol heat carries through the entire way leaving a bit of harshness on the end.

MOUTHFEEL: Medium full bodied but the wheat adds a perceived lightness to it which is nice. Carbonation is average or just a touch above.

DRINKABILITY: Good but not great due to the heat. It's really the only detractor in this beer. Otherwise, it'd be phenominal. Or if you're willing to look past the booziness, it already is.

In the same vein as Vitus, this is a pale style weizenbock. Also in the same vein, it's worth seeking out. I'm not sure if aging would be a good plan to get rid of the alcohol, but it's really not that hard to live with as is.

This beer was a surprisingly delightful experience. I poured the cloudy, lively-colored brew into a glass and was converted into a weizen-bock fanatic instantly. I've tried a fair few now but I think this is quite possibly my favorite. Aventinus is another great one but it doesn't have the same refreshing quality. Vitus is great also but not as cloudy and substantial. I should add that I had this beer after a long day working outside. My thirst and desire for a cold refreshing beverage may have something to do with my decision to award this brew a near perfect 5.
