Weihenstephaner Vitus from Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan in Germany
For wheat beers, it doesn’t get much stronger than the weizen bock style. These strong, dark wheats tend to be malty on flavour.
This beer clocks in at 7.7%, yet it still does a great job of thirst quenching in the summer and masking that high alcohol content.
A foamy head and an opaque pour of this medium yellow beer gives off a wheaty aroma.
The taste has a spice edge but is grainy and wheat. It’s quite nice and not as heavy or strong as you may imagine.
Overall a bit muted, no specific flavours stand out, aside from a battle between malt sugars and bitter alcohol. A decent drinking beer different from your common wheat ales.
The Wicked Wheat Beer Series is a collection of great wheat beers ranging from Belgian Witbier to Dunkelweiss to Hefeweizen and everything in between. If you’re a glutton for gluten, or wild for wheat beers, these are the refreshing beers for you.
