Good brew! Smooth, low IBU, dark fruits, wheat, banana, spices. This was different than the Ayinger weizenbock that I've had. Beeradvocate lists this as a "weizenbock" but they take different approaches to the style. Excuse my memory, but the Ayinger version seemed more what I would imagine a weizenbock to taste like. This reminded me much more of a dopplebock. While I will certainly drink a dopplebock, it isn't my favorite German style (although my second highest reviewed beer is a dopplebock... go figure). If I were to compare this to Ayinger's dopplebock: "Celebrator" I'd have to rate this one below that beer. Celebrator is at the top of the charts. This Schneider seems like a hybrid weizenbock and dopplebock together. I can respect that. It's tough for me because I'm not sure what I should review this as. A Weizenbock, a dopplebock, or just the pure enjoyment of the beer. The thing that this beer has going for it is that it seems like a dopplebock you can enjoy all year round. Celebrator is one of those beers you enjoy during the cold months. Its meant to be drank at a warmer temperature. This one seems like it would work even during warm days because its like it is asking to be drank at a cooler temperature. idk, just my take on this beer. Good stuff!

The beer is a rich dark tan color. It's so good I decided to write a review which is rare for me. It pours a delightful head, and it just looks plain delectable.

The smell is phenomenal: I get banana, clove, peppermint, a touch of booze culminating in a fresh lemongrass aroma. It smells like a hefeweizen with some extra alcohol and earthy flavors. In the taste I get candy sugar, wheat, honey, clove, banana, and a little booze. It tastes like that clove gum with some alcohol added.

This is a great beer. I have to drink these occasionally to remind myself that there is more to beers than hops and coffee stouts. It is almost sad to realize that no American brewery could replicate this taste. I rate this among some of the best beers created. Its not barrel-aged or hop forward, but it's delicious and subtle, which I have yet to find in American beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

16.9 oz. bottle poured into flute

L: murky brown, a hint of amber/red; decent little head in the tight flute glass, tan color, disappears quickly, keeps a thick collar, no sticking or lacing; clears up at the bottom over time but still opaque at top

S: sour darker fruits ... sour/sweet ... dried fruits, darker fruits ... plum, dates, figs; slight sourness is definite ... I'm assuming its a combination of the darker malts mixed with the wheat

T: fruity fig, dates ... darker dried fruits, some raisin bread ... sweet ... very sweet, in fact; candy ... very Belgian abbey-ale like, almost tastes like a dubbel or quad

F: fantastic solid carbonated feel, easy to drink for such a big brew

O: I love this style ... I don't know much about it, but this brew in particular is very sweet, strong in ABV but easy to drink with all the alcohol hidden, lots of darker fruit tastes; only the slight sourness in the nose tips off the wheat, otherwise it comes off like a really good Belgian dubbel ... fantastic beer

Pours a medium brown with a nice big creamy head,the aroma is slightly sweet ans clovey.Has a banana pudding quality to it with some chocolate wafer tones,like some of the others I think this a pretty complex beer.A little heavy in the stomach so its not a highly drinkable beer for me,but a great complex beer.

Deep, dark brown pour with an enormous foamy head. Light hoppy nose with underlying hints of chocolate and plum. Lovely mouthfeel. Flavours of light, unsweetened chocolate, raisin, plum, a hint of banana and a spicey finish including some clove & nutmeg. Of course there is a noticeable alcohol kick on the finish. Very warm beer but yet not heavy. It stays light on the tongue and refreshes and yet is intense and complex in its flavours. A classic in my book.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Appearance – Dark brown in color with lots of carbonation and a great head, but little lacing.

Smell – Huge dark yeast and malt aromas along with a variety of sweets. Raw sugar stands out to me, but there are also strong sticky caramel notes, bananas, and other ripe fruits. Well done.

Taste - This is a symphony of flavors. It is brewed in Munchen, Bayern, the home of great beer.

The dunkel weizen aspect is awesome, a hair sweeter than the standard. The carbonation is middling, the yeast deep, raw, and intricate to the flavor, and the dark, burnt taste is present but not porteresque. The huge sugars from the nose kick in as well, making this a mouthful.

The other half of the blend is the doppel bock. Here Aventinus shines as well. The burnt taste (different from the dunkles weizen flavors) is classic bock and, somehow, very distinctive from but not overpowering to the other aspects of the beer.

Together the myriad flavors add up to a smooth, most complex, slightly intoxicating (8.0 ABV) masterpiece. The Aventinus Wheat Doppelbock is an amazing accomplishment within the brewing industry. I’ve never tasted anything like it.

Mouthfeel – A little off carbonation for a weitzen, but right on for a doppelbock. It’s not perfect, but really good.

Drinkability – In Germany a case of beer consists of 20 bottles like this in a plastic milk bottle type of carrier, and they are ribbed for stacking on top of one another. I’d like to have a walk-in cooler in my house and these things stacked to the ceiling. This went down exceptionally well.

Comments – I got down to the 39th review (high-low) before finding anything lower than a four (I’m number 40). This is the real deal and not just my partialness to weitzens and bocks. It’s incredible, and easily one of my favorite beers of all time.

Update: Reviewed 11/23/04 and raising the Mouthfeel from 4.0 to 4.5. This beer is utterly consistant from year to year.

Beautiful. In my Weizen glass the lower portion of the beer is translucent and an almost bright orange mahogany. The beer in the wider are of the glass looks considerably darker, almost red and deeply brown. The contrast is remarkably striking. The head is huge, tan, and frothy. Aromas are heavy of banana, and cloves. There is also some berry presence as well as chocolate and apple peals. Tastes is jammy and has a sticky caramelness about it. Banana, cloves, chocolate, anise, and dark fruits all enter into play. This is just wonderful, truly wonderful. Drinkability is supreme. Mouthfeel is smooth. Very sessionable even at 8 degrees.

A - Looks like a Long Island Iced Tea - chestnut-brown dark, but greyer still, and very cloudy. Most unusual.

S - Caramel and banana. Fresh made banana-loaf cake.

T - Fruits and spices the whole way through. Really fantastic. If you can have 'pudding wines', I think this might be a 'pudding beer'. Would compliment cheese and crackers very well.

O - I've been in Germany 3 years now, and this is the first time I've even heard of such a dark wheat-beer. Check it out is my advice, it's something really quite special.

p.s. As I swallow each mouth-full of this beer, I get pungent mouth-fulls of 'Christmas spicy flavours' running over the palette... This really is something special! One week left in Germany before I return to Asia: Note to Self - Must go to beer-shop tomorrow and get a few more of these in!

Thanks to Kevin for this one. Apparently this is the "go-to" weizenbock, much like Weihenstephan owns the title for "go-to hefe". Haven't had much weizenbock experience in my life, so I'll have to see how this plays out. Brown and swampy looking from the pour, hazy and cloudy all the way through with a puffy, off-white head showing nice retention and solid lacing as the beer shrinks in the glass.

Bubblegum. Yeast. Banana. Clove. Apple skins. Mild dark fruits. Sound familiar? Smells almost like a hefeweisen on acid - only with less wheat and a stronger alcohol presence. Yes, yes, the alcohol is noticeable on the nose, but doesn't really hinder at all - it only adds a bit of phenol presence. As this one warms up, I start picking up some more unique notes; mild tartness, cherries, dry wheat, spices, and light caramel. Overall, very pleasing to my nostrils, and it smells much like I expected. The wheat definitely picks up the pace a bit more during the latter half, too.

Well, well, well. Whatever bit of wheat was missing in the aroma is more than compensated for in the taste. The first sip coats the palate with a heavy blanket of wheat; subtly sweet, dry, and refined. The bubblegum-banana combo follows closely behind, and the banana almost takes on a "rotten" or "overripe" flavor profile. I know that sounds gross, but trust me - it works well. Yeasty and hefe-like all around with spices coming at you left and right. Clove, coriander, orange zest, pith, and peel, with a light sprinkling of mild white pepper covering everything. In the end, some light fruitiness surfaces; mild banana and mixed berries. Medium bodied with lots of carbonation, giving a floaty kind of mouth feel.

Hm, I still think I prefer Weihenstephaner Vitus to this beer, but there's no denying that this is still some good stuff. I don't know if I'm well-versed enough in weizenbocks to accurately rank this one among the rest, but it was definitely tasty, and dangerously drinkable for being 8.2% ABV.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Dark brown with some red hues. A khaki head reached 2 fingers of frothy foam from a fairly firm pour into my snifter. Said head receded almost immediately, which was surprising considering how dense it was. Lacing is present but uninspiring.

S: A vast array of aromas reside in this beer. I smell some vanilla and caramel sweetness along with banana and plum fruit notes. In addition, there is a good amount of spicy aroma in the form of salt, clove, and paprika.

T: A somewhat hot spiciness greets my mouth in the flavor of cayenne pepper (I know, weird) and clove. This rolls over into a fruity, sweet character, with banana, vanilla, and some light chocolate flavors emerging as the beer warms.

M: In a word, exciting. The beginning of each sip brings a blast of sharp, biting, spicy acidity to my tongue. This is followed by a light to medium spritzing of carbonation. For sheer originality, I rate this mouthfeel high.

D: For the style, I think this is quite drinkable. Bock beers are not my favorite, but this brew has a lot to offer in terms of complexity and think-ability.

look ~ this one pouts a medium brown with some nice orange high-lights in it. the brew is very opaque. head is large: cream-colored, moussy, and long-lived; it rises to a decent height and falls at an average pace with little lacing. some nice visible carbonation.

smell ~ a really pleasant, strong aroma. the grainbill has some rich melanoidins (prunes, grapes, etc) and wheat. the yeast is filled with spices (cloves, vanilla) and some fruit (banana). A little bit of alcohol. No real hop presence.

taste ~ nicely complex and still light. the melanoidin on the grain-bill comes out a bit stronger on the palate, this is strongly reminiscent of prunes/plums with a bit of grape in mix. It also has some nice grain wheatiness. no darker roasty notes. the yeast flavor is very similar to a hefe (banana/clove/some black pepper on the finish) with some more vanilla in the mix. Overall, it tasted like a milder dunkelweizen with some stronger bock notes. No real hops, a light hint of alcoholic fussels (floral)

feel ~ light body with high carbonation. this lightness dries out the finish and also helps keep the complexity from getting too muddled. A bit of an acidic pinch and alcohol heat on the finish that give an interesting feel with the spiciness.

overall, I really enjoy this brew. I find that this brew is a little more Hefeweizen like than some others of this style. I find it one of those complex-without-being-too-muddled brews that I love because it achieves a great balance.

this one is the grand-daddy of weizenbocks and it richly deserves the title.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

16.9 ouncer poured into a Schneider Weisse glass.

A- Light amber with a big, highly carbonated off-white head. Very noisy as well, crackly.

S- Clovey, spicy, licorice, bubblegum, and a hint of banana. Subtle but complex.

T- Root beer cola, yeasty. Opposite the nose, it's a bit sweeter and less spicy. Sweet malt as it warms, hides the alcohol well.

M&D- Medium-full bodied, slightly filmy and almost syrupy. Tasty and drinkable, the alcohol could sneak up on you if you aren't careful. A must try and ageable to boot.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Aroma -bannana, bright plum, alcohol, berries, clove, - basically smells like hefe with great added complexity, little sugary

App - opaque plum color with loud, lively carbonation, head retention is not awesome but nontheless impressive for the strength of the beer

Taste - Wonderfully deep malt flavor is kept levitating on the palate by the wheat. Hefe yeast's signature banana/ clove combo runs through the whole thing with a nice raisin character. Stone fruits appear every now and then. Wheat dries out the finish. Alcohol is there but you've really gotta look for it.

MF- Wheat and carbonation really seem to play a key role in keeping this strong, full-bodied beeer from coating the palate.

What a magical beer style. Complex but humble and, knowing the Germans, probably a realatively simple grain bill. This is maybe the most drinkable beer upward of 7% ABV I've ever had. Could get into some real trouble with this one flowing on tap.

Aventinus Weizenbock nice 8.2% abv.

A- Very stern pour produces a hazy dark brown fluid with fluffy quickly falling head. Head falls to a ring with small amounts of middle froth. Little to none lacing but for a wheat doppelbock expected. Beautiful hue in the sunlight.

S- Rigid smells of raisins, dark fruit, alcohol esters, and fresh yeasty zest dominate the nose.
Excellent scents of a Doppelbock wheat.

T-M- Smooth yeasty start with light flavors of prunes, raisins, and figs. Secondly followed by rich alcohol esters and wheat bite. Very light on the tongue with little to deter you from drinking alot of this heavily strong beer.
Thin layer of malty feel lays on the mouth after a gulp making this a excellent experience for the taste buds.

D- Highly drinkable and will go tomorrow for six more to keep and drink when the need for a real wheat beer is needed.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a very dark brown with the slightest tint of red in the light. A fantastic 3 fingers worth of rocky white head that has some real staying power, but eventually settles down to about half the original depth. Decent lacing.

Aromas are interesting; complex and a little hard to pin down. Deep caramel malts, a little bit of fresh bread, a bit of that bubble gum typical of wheat, and something just a touch spicy. Nothing really stands out on its own though, it is all just a nicely played olfactory symphony. Very nice.

Flavors are just about as complex and even as the aromas, but not quite the same. The malty sweetness comes through nicely but is relatively balanced, just hinting toward that sweetness. The wheat is present but doesn't take over the palate, rather it blends nicely with the other complexities. For a darker brew I expected more of a coffee or mocha flavor but didn't really experience that. The finish begins malty but quickly evaporates, with a slight warmth that lingers.

Textures are wonderful. Slightly creamy, moderate fine carbonation, smooth drinking. If it wasn't for that slight alcohol flavor coming through I would have given it a perfect score.

Fantastic drinkability, just a bit heavy on the warmth. I love the ABV I just don't like the raw taste of alcohol. This isn't bad at all, but there is enough there that it wasn't perfect for my taste. However, it was still very good and I highly recommend it for the style.

4.27/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 1 pint plus .9 fl. oz. tapered bottle with a cool purple, gold and white label. "Germany's Original Wheat-Doppelbock, Ale." No freshness date seen.

Appearance: Comparable colour to a Double Bock though even deeper and thicker shades of brown from the cloudiness, thin off white lace that has a creamy look to it.

Smell: Ripe fruit is dominant with caramel undertones, almost rum like. Soft spicy clove with hints of caramelized plantains, alcoholic esters are noticeable.

Taste: Mildly crisp carbonation from a stiff pour into the glass, creamy and syrupy thick mouth feel within the full body. Snappy and tingling, parading a clean bite from some spicy clove and sweetish alcohol that leans toward a fruity rum character. Hop bitterness is minute as well as the flavour. Gentle hints of chocolate and chicory and to the complex flavour, finish cleans up a bit from the warming alcohol, nutty yeast and husky grain.

Notes: A massive wheat brew that is unsurpassed by any other of its kind. Unpasteurized, unfiltered, top fermented and original bottle fermentation. The yeast in this brew, make the brew. After pouring, there was enough yeast to begin propagation. This is by far one of the best bock beers tasted to date.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a reddish brown color. Very odd fizzy head that recedes into nothing. Clove dominates in the smell, as well as something else that I don't like at all. Taste is of cloves and some bananas, with a bit of chocolate. There's almost a burning aftertaste that's rather unpleasent.

Overall, I don't really care for this brew. Not only is it darn expensive ($4 bucks a bottle, almost the same as a Rogue bomber), but it just doesn't do anything for me. I may try it again in a year or so, once my tastebuds have grown.

I've had this on tap many times, but this is the first time I've had it from the bottle and thus the first time I am reviewing it. This is one of my personal favs though.

This was poured into a tall hefe glass and exhibited a nice cloudy caramel color at the bottom of the glass and a rich brown at the top. Initial head was nearly white and a about two fingers tall, this settled out to a thin layer of bubbles on top.

Very nice smell, much like a hefe with its banana and clove aromas along with some other hints of dark fruits. This one is slightly different as there is more of an esther aroma and which is well balanced by a bit of wheat and malt.

This one presents itself with clove and bready malts with a typical wheat beer finish. I love this beer because of its simplicity but robust flavors. There is definately some alcohol nuances in the taste and my stomach.

Mouthfeel is full and coats the mouth well. Not much else to say here. Drinkability is only brought down by the alcohol level. I usually get this in the 500mL at the bar and won't have another as I'm usually quite topped off by the fullness of this one.

Overall, a must have. This is a very approachable high abv beer for almost anyone.

Enjoyed first bottle of this so much I wanted another to take notes on.

Poured from 500ml bottle to a wine glass.

a - pours medium-dark mahogany brown with a thick (2 finger) tan head which subsides relatively quickly. Some lacing.

s - cloves, fruits, reminiscent of a Belgian (e.g. Delirium Tremens)

t - taste of cloves, sweet fruits, caramel, and chocolate. Hits the palate kind of like a Belgian, but not too fizzy. The spice, fruit, and sweet flavors take the front seat.

m - very nice body, low carbonation so not too sharp on the tongue. Spice, fruit, and caramel flavors linger.

d - very nice beer, very easy to drink (be careful). Counting this as one of my favorites. Exceptional brew. Poured one for my wife to sample and she loved it. She's already planning to buy more as Christmas presents for the family...

Pours a distinct carmel color. Significant head, but doesnt look carbonated in the body ... at least to the degree of head.

Smells like a malty bock. Sweet, doppel, citrus? Did I mention malt? Dont really smell the abv, though there is something crisp about the smell. Is crisp a smell?

Smells much more malty than the taste. Initial is a bit uninspiring. Was expecting something more pungent considering the envigorating smell. Ending is nice. A bit malty, but nothing that catches me. Maybe Im missing something. Its a bock, yes. I guess I dont understand the style difference from other bocks.

A bit smooth, better than the carbonation looks. Like most other bocks.

I gotta go average here. This beer hasnt done much to awe me. Its a decent beer, but Im not getting the part thats going to being me back to it unless Im in Germany ;)

Beer being reviewed: a 1998 bottle of Aventinus, stored at 53 degrees in its case in a dark basement, poured at cellar temperature into a 0.5l Aventinus glass. How does this one age? Let's find out...

Mahogany amber-red. The head starts out thick but quickly dissipates into a thin, rather highly carbonated bead. The aroma is redolent of yeast, with some toasted almond and estery notes along with a breadlike maltiness.

Interesting - I was expecting some cardboardy flavors, but instead I get a very toasty-sweet maltiness, with notes of coffee, cocoa, and background esteriness of clove and a little banana. Really fizzy mouthfeel, prickly on the tongue. Alcohol and an oily astringency also present. It's like the tongue gets three effects at once - prickly at the tip, oily in the middle, and astringency at the back. Let's let this warm up a bit... Hmm. The prickliness has died off a bit, leaving more esteriness, vanilla, and a hint of smokiness in its wake. The alcohol seems more apparent than on a fresh bottle as well.

Conclusion: Aging doesn't hurt, but doesn't increase the complexity or depth of flavor to as great a degree as I'd figured it would. Drink it fresh for best effect IMO - but if you have an aged bottle or two, it's still a wonderful brew.

This is an astonishing and quite unique beer. Will, without a doubt, be a permanent addition to my buying patterns.
On first pour, this is a deep, dark, cloudy and chocolatey brown. The head is dense that (slowly) fades to a creamy and sticky lace. Aromas are predominately fruit esthers with a strong burnt sugar and alcohol underpinning. Oddly enough, there is a nice tropical spice aroma that lurks under it all.
Initial taste shows a bright and snappy carbonation with noticable alcohol and a nice, tropical-seeming, spice and caramel flavor. The mouth feel is super creamy but a bit too "sticky" to be truly excellent (IMHO). Finish has excellent wheat and yeast flavors with a final blast of crisp fruit/alchohol.
This is an outrageous beer. To my taste and in my experience the best of its type.
