Limited Edition Brewed in 2003, bottled in 2004, and consumed today. Bottle wrapped in white tissue paper with "brewed in 2003" print all over it.
Appearance: Dark brown, borderline black body with a good 2 finger head that is the slightest shade of almond. Decent head retention and some lacing which is impressive for a 5 year old brew.
Smell: Wheat, Clove, Dark Roasted Malts
Taste: Your standard wheat / clove / toasted malt Aventinus with an additional slightly vinous note. The vinous quality is quite minimal at this point and perfect in my opinion. Its also counterbalanced by a taste of chocolate.
Mouthfeel: full bodied yet thin. Ample carbonation.
Drinkability: Much more drinkable than a fresh Aventinus in my humble opinion. The wine/chocolate flavors that become more pronounced with age are creating a playful complexity that the fresh Aventinus lacks.
I'm thinking that 5 years of aging this brew is ideal for my tastes. I still have a line on getting more of these 2003 limited editions and I think I will.

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!
