Weihenstephaner Vitus

Lots of hype comes with Weihenstephaner Vitus, even named the Best Beer in the World in 2011.

A huge, fluffy white head floats atop a hazy gold body. Wheat, pepper, and sour citrus in the aroma. Banana is the first flavor that comes through. Although it is a bit on the side of imitation banana candy flavor rather than real banana. After that, black pepper, wheat malt, finishing with bitter orange and coriander. The spices become more pronounced as it warms. Bit of heat from the 7.7% ABV.

This is definitely a beer to enjoy. Loads of flavor, great balance, excellent drinkability. I wouldn’t call this the best beer in the world, though. I’d even choose another offering from Weihenstephaner, Korbinian, before I would Vitus. But it’s a wonderful beer.

Grade: A
