Weihenstephaner "Vitus"
Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan - Freising, Germany
Weizenbock (ABV 7.7%) (IBU 17)

[Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]


Rating: 3.8/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a murky golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white rocky head that lasted throughout, reducing slightly to a small cap with excellent sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, light citrus hops and a sweaty yeasty with notes of banana, green apple, citrus (lemon), clove and a touch of honey.

The taste was lightly sweet and very mildly malty with a hint of citrus that lasted throughout, and finished with a spicy yeast taste and had just a bit of banana at the end. The flavor stuck around for an average duration following the swallow, with a refreshing spicy citrus taste left lying on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was right between light and medium in body with a dry, creamy texture and a soft carbonation.

Overall this was a very tasty and refreshing brew that had a great spicy banana ending and an awesome drinkability...
