Weihenstaphaner – Vitus


The Weihenstephan Abbey was funded by the Benedictine monks in 725 and in 1040 they established what is now the oldest still operational brewery, in the world. The brewery is now owned by the state of Bavaria and is closely related to the technical university of Munich where studies on brewing and beverage manufacturing is a graduate program.

I bought this unfiltered weissbeer from a German webshop at the price of 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 7,7%.

Good looking hazy yellow beer.

Gigantic head with the finest of fine on the top.

Powerful aroma that explodes with fruit, banana and sums up the whole body of the beer.

Low CO2, full bodied fruit that is very heavy, extremely sweet in the after taste. There is no sign in the taste of the high alcohol content.

Overall rating 79 / 100
