Other Information

Weihenstephaner Vitus is a light coloured spicy single bock saturated with fine yeast and a creamy foam. Full bodied and sparkling with an effervescent mouthfeel, the fruity apricot aroma joins citrus, cloves and light banana notes. A speciality beer with a round character due to the extra long storage time in our monastery cellars. This isn’t your typical bock beer, more like a fruity wheat beer.

  1. Stujago

    This is a lovely example of a wheat beer. The flavours are very pronounced and full bodied. The dominant flavour is banana and a sweetness. Very smooth for it’s alcoholic strength.

  2. Jordan Long

    This best beer ever, weiss of otherwise. Does not drink to its ABV, NO cloying taste as per some and just the best Brewery in the world. You will not be dissapointed…

  3. Kristin

    Lovely beer. So far all the beers I have tasted from Weihenstephaner have been very nice and this is no disappointment. Smooth for a 7.7% beer

  4. Andy P

    I’m a big wheat beer fan, but this is my absolute favourite beer out there. Incredibly good, it’s everything that’s great about wheat beer, but turned up to 11. It always sells quickly, if you see it… buy it!

  5. Simon Tomlinson

    Frothy off white head soon left a cover on a cloudy, highly effervescent dark golden body.. Fruity aroma with peach, banana & citrus. Medium bodied, well carbonated & clean on the back. Banana, peach, tropical fruits, mango & nectarine tastes.

  6. Michael Channon

    I have enjoyed other Weihenstephaner beers..so tried this one. I am not really a fan of the wheat beer type ( I don’t like the banana flavours going on) but I really found it to my palate, it just had more ‘ umph’ to it,presumably the strength had something to do with it!…The extra storage obviously gave more depth which I really liked….this brewery is always worthwhile to try….recommended

  7. Alastair Paterson

    Quite exceptional. One of the very best bottled beers I have ever tasted.

  8. Colin A

    Extra boozy wheat beer. Very tasty but one is enough in a night!

  9. Chris Meechan

    Malty and sweet with hints of clove. Very easy drinking for the abv

  10. Gavin Harrison

    Very deceptive beer. Looks, smells and tastes like a typical 5% Weizen, so after a few of these the 7.7% could come as a bit of a surprise when you tried to stand up! It’s delicious, fruity, sweet and slightly spicy but more than any of that, it’s smooth and quite subtle. None of that tartness or bitterness often associated with the stronger beers. Sorry to sound like a government health warning, but this really is one to enjoy in moderation. Do that and you’ll really appreciate what a great beer this is.

  11. jonny mayle

    This beer is incredible!

  12. Mark Fenna

    As others have said, tastes like a standard weisbeer but with the added bonus of the 7.7% – outstanding beer.

  13. WJ

    Outstanding! The best way to describe it is a fusion of spice hints with a hefeweizen. Very full bodied with a creamy head, stunning beer.

  14. Kris

    This guy was a hefty weisse – definitely recommended for when you just want to enjoy one beer in an evening and so you want that beer to deliver on interesting flavour!

  15. Matthew

    Fantastic wheat beer – smooth and sweet – strong (7.7%) but tastes more like a 5% wheat beer

  16. Paul C

    A superbly unique beer
    A rare combination of wheat beer and strong lager.
    A golden cloudy colour, it is full bodied, malty, spicy, strongly cloved and extremely smooth.
    Leaves a sweet aftertaste.
    Not for the faint hearted.
    One of the best. !!

  17. FoggyMountainMan

    A truly outstanding example of a strong wheat beer. Possibly the best beer from this legendary brewery. This is an absolute must try.

  18. Xavier Crepin

    A surprising German beer I didn’t know before , with a spicy after taste . Will recommend

  19. Alexey Nekhaenko

    Goes down much easier than 7.7% ABV would assume

  20. David Beckham

    Smokey aroma and taste.
    Pleasant to drink.
    You dont realise how strong it is when drinking it.
