Foam / Aroma

Saturated with fine yeast and topped with a creamy head of foam, Vitus, our pale wheat bock has a fruity profile, resplendent with aromas of dried apricots and citrus fruits.

Flavor / Color

Cloves are readily perceptible in the flavor, with a hint of banana. Full-bodied and effervescent, the fine bubbles of carbon dioxide create a foaming sensation in the mouth. Vitus doesn’t taste like a conventional strong beer, but rather more like a premium, fruity wheat beer.

Remarks

Our pale wheat bock is lagered for an extended period of time, resulting in a perfectly balanced strong beer with a rounded character.

Vitus

Our Weizenbock Vitus – a strong wheat bock – is one of a kind. It has attracted many loyal followers who prefer to enjoy this beer year-round, not only during the traditional season for strong beer.
