Vitus Single Bock

Category: Weizen Bock

Hazy amber color. Savory, meaty aromas and flavors of turkey and egg croissant sandwich, spiced chestnuts, and hint of mint with a chewy, vibrant, finely carbonated, fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, very long finish with shades of toasted rye with peach preserves, banana cake, spiced nuts, and yams finish. A delicious, chewy, and warming wheat bock.

Weizen Bock

Beer Glass Hefeweizen Dark.jpg
Serve in a Weissbier Glass
Weizen bocks are pale gold to dark brown in color and range in alcohol from 6.5-8.5%. These beers combine the character of hefeweizens and dopplebocks and are rich and malty with estery, yeasty qualities. These brews also show a note of wheaty crispness through the finish. Weizen bocks are essentially winter wheat beers, originally brewed in Bavaria. Noteworthy example of this style include: Schneider Aventinus, Hacker-Pschorr Weisse Bock and Urban Chestnut Maximilian.
