A: Aventinus boasts a beautiful mahogany body, which is accentuated by the brew's haziness. The head formation is abrupt, forming a rocky head that climbs right out of the glass without falling out of it. If at any point your head fades below your liking (a rare scenario,) simply give the glass a good swirl to summon a new one. The only aesthetic quality that could be improved here is a more lively lacing.

S: The bouquet is bold and upfront, with rum, bananas, and clove, all balanced well.

T: Absolutely amazing. Rum, raisins, bananas Foster, and earthy yeast intermingle, producing a piquant harmony of flavors. These yeasty flavors are all present, but not in an overpowering manner. They are just powerful enough to balance out another major flavor, alcohol. Yes, it is perceptible, but in a pleasing manner.

M: Full bodied with a chewy texture, the brew sticks to the palate with such tenacity that even the obscene amount of effervescence is unable to completely wash away the flavor. This, in turn, results in a beautiful lingering aftertaste in which the web of flavors unravels in to single threads.

D: This is THE weizenbock in my book. There are plenty of tasty examples out there, but they hardly compare to the Aventinus. This is a must try.

4.66/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A - Poured with a four-finger, creamy and lightly tan head. Lots of lacing, and dissipates quickly. The color is a dark burnt orange. Very cloudy, can't really see through it. Very bubbly.

S - Strong wheat notes. Malty and some sweet dark fruits.

T - Sweet dark fruits at the front, followed by a malty middle. The finish is wheaty. Not bitter at all.

M - Medium heavy to thick in body. Alcohol and carbonation burn are minor.

O - Really like the taste of this one. I like the maltiness and sweetness. Wheat is not necessarily my favorite taste, but it works here. My favorite weizenbock so far.
