Weihenstephaner Vitus

Weihenstephaner Vitus is supposedly from the world’s oldest brewery and I have to say that I believe them… I did a quick search and about the only other old brewery I could find was Weltenburger… they show 10 years later, though, and only claim to be the world’s oldest monastary brewery… pretty damn close, but no cigar.  The Weihenstephan website has some pretty interesting information about the orign of beer, the history of the brewery, etc.  Good stuff for any beer nut to enjoy and would be a great trivia hot spot.

Now, on to the review… I basically don’t know what to say.  It is a strong weizenbock beer at 7.7% ABV.  It has a cloudy light golden color to it with about a 1/2 inch head on a good poor.  It tastes a bit fruity toward a hefe, but also has the bitterness and tart aftertaste of an IPA.  Overall, it is definitely an aquired taste that I haven’t quite aquired yet.
