Weihenstephaner Vitus
Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan - Freising, Germany

Located just north of Munich, the Weihenstephan Brewery is no novice to brewing. Licensed as far back as 1040, it is recognized as the world's oldest working brewery. Unlike traditional bocks, this weizenbock is light-colored and fermented with an ale yeast, which creates flavors of banana, lemon, orange and clove. A ramped-up version of a Bavarian hefeweizen, it's emboldened by its hefty 7.7 percent alcohol strength.

Style: Weizenbock
ABV:
7.7 percent
Price:
$3 / 16.9 oz. bottle
