BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan
Germany
weihenstephaner.de

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.

I absolutely love this beer. When I tried this beer for the first time i can't go back to American beer lol. Even though, I do enjoy some American Craft beers. This beer though has the same exact taste as the Hefeweisse bier. Yet, it is definitely got a lot more alcohol then the Hefeweisse version does. I hope your not afraid of a BOMB of flavors such as clove and banana. The feel of this beer on the palate is smooth yet pretty carbonated. All in all, it is a outstanding bier. If you like German style Wheat biers with a TON of flavor? Then this is definitely the bier for you. So... what are you waiting for? Open a bottle and try it out for your self. You will NOT be disappointed. Prost!

Poured from a glorious 500ml into my favorite glass (Hacker-Pshorr twisty deal).

Then, my throat was all "oh, fuck it. stomach, this is for YOU".

Then my stomach was all "Nom nom nom".

So that beer is a goner.

Fuckin' A
