Thirsty Thursday Beer Painting #108. Weihenstephaner Vitus.

The Vitus by Weihenstephaner near München, Germany is an excellent beer!  As a home-brewer, I just bought a yeast variety from this fine brewing institution.  Today, as I brew beer, I think fondly of Bavaria and the great beer brewed there.  Bavaria brings to mind a few very distinctive styles, of which the wheat beer is the one that seems most inspiring.  Brewed to drink during the winter, this 7.7% ABV Weizenbock is a strong wheat beer for sure.  The flocculent yeast brings strong flavor, aroma, and the estery character to this beer.  When I tasted this beer at the Tap-House Munich, I was blown away at the full and delicious flavor of this brew.  It made me think of everything German I have ever tasted, and for a second I thought I could speak German too.  Anyway, this beer, as well as my last adventure in Germany was great, and I hope you get a chance to taste this winter favorite of Bavaria!  Prost to the Vitus, ein ausgezeichnetes bier!
