12oz bottle number 15328 (2007) served in a snifter
Aventinus Eisbock pours a murky, deep woody brown that shows red/orange when held up to a light, the head starts off about one centimeter thick but falls to thin film of tiny bubbles in a short time. The smell is typical weizen yeast banana and clove but it is subtle here, there is also a fair level of bready wheat and the dominating solventy alcohol. The taste is upfront alcohol, solventy and slightly hot peppery and syrupy slick. In the taste I'm getting much more of the clove ester than the banana but that is there too along with the wheaty grain in the background, there is no mistaking that this is a real german Weizen. I don't get any bitterness at all in this it is totally overwhelmed by the malt and alcohol, but I guess that is fine for the style. Mouthfeel is very smooth warming and slightly slick the moderate carbonation keeps things from feeling too flat and heavy. Overall this is a very good beer I may have expected a bit more however, that being said I'm really not that disappointed. For a beer of it's strength this eisbock remains very drinkable, is still quite well rounded and a is definitely a classic wheat beer.

A: Dark maple syrup brown, cloudy, a finger of light beige head, opaque so can’t see any carbonation.
S: Very weizen like, dark fruits like dates and figs, ripe bananas, floral, black pepper, ripe banana peels, a slight fermented fruit.
T: Big weizen flavours, dark fruit, dates and figs, ripe bananas, tannic, sweet, big alcohol flavours, little bitterness. Brown sugar.
M: Thick, weighty syrupy body, medium high fine bubbled carbonation.
O: My first in this style. A strong beer that’s well done and a sipper, but very drinkable. Complex good flavours, reminiscent of a weizen.
