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.

Wine EnthusiastVitus, made from a resurrected recipe that is now being brewed year round, is a full-bodied and intensely flavored weizenbock that offers layer upon layer of aromas and flavors. A cloudy golden color in the glass, it starts off with an incredible head that lingers and leaves gorgeous lacing behind with each sip. Scents of banana, green tropical fruit, lemon and clove fill the bouquet and continue on to the palate alongside additional flavors of sweet spice, vanilla bean, bread dough and pear flesh. Balanced and harmonious, with a long and spicy finish.
