Poured into my Schneider Weisse weizen glass.

A: Dark brown sugar caramelized bananas, much like bananas foster liquid, thinnest head even with a sloppy pour, semi-active carbonation is visible down bottom, some lacing.

S: Straight bananas foster: Sugar, brown sugar, and bananas.

T: Take Aventinus taste and put it on steroids. The brown sugar and banana flavor are so pure, realistic, and dominant. A nice bourbon alcohol note on the back-end that slightly burns as it goes down from your throat to your chest and warms while it lingers.

M: So creamy, very highly carbonated and bitey. Again, mellowed bourbon warming sensation that lingers in your chest for a while.

O: Love it. This is it. This is the best beer in the world. My first Eisbock, and now my absolute favorite beer. Schneider has earned the perfect score.

Had in Munich in a Weiss Haus...literally a perfect beer, if you like that sort of thing. Very dark, far mire so than the doppelbocks, and stronger than the many "ators" available (Celebrator, Optimator, Triumphator, etc.) due to extremely cold fermentation, I was told. Sweet but still distinctly German, unlike the wine-like sweet geueze of France or the barleywine old brown ale of England. Powerful, so beware.
