Weihenstephan Weizenbock review
Studying the Weizenbock ‘VITUS’ from @weihenstephan_official today.
Aroma: moderate to strong banana esters and clove balancing each other, moderate low wheat malt, no hop aroma.
Appearance: Bright orange color with a tall white head with moderate persistence, fine lacing, very cloudy.
Flavor: low to moderate low wheat malt character, moderate to strong spicy clove character followed by moderate high banana esters, finishes out fairly dry, balance is towards the yeast character, no noticeable hop flavor, low to moderate low hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel: moderate high carbonation, smooth and creamy texture, a slight alcoholic warmth noticeable. No astringency.
Overall impression: A flavorful and delicious beer with tons of yeast character and a supportive wheat malt character with subtle hop bitterness. A classic!
