BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan
Germany

Style: Weizenbock

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.70%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our light-coloured, spicy single-bock, “Vitus” is saturated with fine yeast and a creamy foam. It is a specialty with a round character based on the extra long storage time. The fruity smell of dried apricots joins aromas of citrus, cloves and hints of banana. Full-bodied and sparkling with an effervescent mouthfeel. Thus, the Vitus does not taste like a typical Bock beer but more like a noble, fruity wheat beer. Perfect with red meat, strong cheese and also able to guide desserts. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

Poured a cloudy yellow - orange color with a white foamy two-finger head. Heavy lacing. Aromas of citrus, apricots and spice. Taste of citrus, cloves, bananas. Little hop bitterness. Moderate body and effervescent. This is not even close to a bock beer. It is more like a boozy hefe. I like it!

From a bottle. Hazy yellow, excellent head retention. Banana , herbal on the nose and taste. Medium bodied, smooth feel, just a little lemon and tartness. A bit of alcohol heat on the finish. Complex and wonderful.

Appearence: Cloud yellow-orange, white head with good retention and formation.

Smell: Yellow fruits, banana, clove and spicy. Bread bark and malty too.

Flavor: Medium sweetness, banana, clove and low acidity, low bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and high carbonation, banana and clove and spicy persists in the after taste and a low alcoholic heat can be felt.

Overall: Refreshing but with medium body, spicy and sweet, alcoholic and high carbonated, this beer bring a very balanced and even complex german flavour to your table!

Amazing taste. I was in Austria several years ago and I had a beer like this, I have been craving this taste ever since. Too bad I was not beet literate then (no internet) so no way of knowing what I had had. I have tried several German pilsners and weiss beers since then but could tell that none tasted like what I had tasted at that time. I have always been a fan of Weihenstephaner beers, original and weiss beer. Last weekend, I saw this one at a store and quickly grabbed it. When I had it today, immediately that taste of several years go came back rushing to me. This is what I have been missing for so many years.
