Brewed by:

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.

Appearance: Very cloudy light orangish yellow. Big frothy head that remains.
Smell: Banana bread.
Taste: Fruit, spice, and bread.

Excellent. The look is almost murky. On top of the ultra-cloudy hay colored brew is a huge frothy head that stayed the course. The smell is overwhelmingly banana, and seems just like warm banana bread. The taste is more complex, but harder to put my finger on it. I picked up fruit and bread wrapped in a spiciness. The total package is great. I will get this again.
