Let me start this review off by saying that I am a HUGE and I mean a HUGE fan of doppelbocks. That being said, this doppelbock is rather unique. We have here a WHEAT DOPPELBOCK and a DELICIOUS one at that. I have nicknamed this beer the BANANA DOPPELBOCK BIER. I have had this beer at room temperature and cold and ICE cold. I always seem to enjoy it at room temperature more than the other methods. This beer is simply said, great. Period. I cannot say it better. It's not good, it's GREAT. It's a TRUE bock and it's heavy on the alcohol but not too heavy on the stomach!
A: Pours a solid dark brown. A very good sized head with lacing all over!
S: Smells of banana! Yes! That's the FIRST thing that hits my nose. Is that a bad thing? You say you don't like fruity beers? Well trust me, this is a DELICIOUS doppelbock! The smell is of ROASTED banana..if you can pinpoint that--and if you can't, then you have GOT to try this beer. It's fantastic.
T: Sweet caramel taste, not too overpowering and not underwhelming at all. Taste is of roasted malts and roasted banana! Wow. Roasted banana. This German doppelbock is awesome.
M: Creamy and crisp! Crisp? Yes, the water used for this brew is simply awesome. If you love beer you MUST try this bock bier!
D: Very drinkable, but be careful. The alcohol content on Schneider's Aventinus is HIGH at over 8 percent. The roasted taste will leave you wanting more. I can guarantee that. This is a beer that I always have stocked and have preserved. You should always have one in your fridge waiting for you!
This is quite possibly THE best Weizenbock you are going to encounter. As a doppelbock, I'd definitely put it in my top 5..perhaps even my top 3. Great brew
Served from a bottle...I'd love to try it on tap when I visit Germany this year

Picked this up at a great beer shop in Darmstadt, Germany, Maruhn Welt der Getränke. Cloudy chocolate brown pour with a two finger off-white head with decent retention and great lacing. Big malty, bready nose with hints of banana, cloves, chocolate, dark fruits, brown sugar, licorice, and caramel. The taste is rich and bold with tons of malty sweet brown bread. banana, plums, caramel, cloves, tobacco, chocolate, anise, apple skin, and some nice subtle citrus hop notes. The mouthfeel is thick and chewy with prickly carbonation and a creamy and slightly oily finish. Overall, another great offering from Schneider Weisse. Kicking myself for living in Germany all these years and not giving Weizens a second chance. Will definitely have this stocked in my beer fridge in the future!
