Aventinus from G.Schneider and Sohns brewery in Kelheim, Germany (cq brewery name and location) is a hefeweizen doppelbock, which sounds like a mouthful but is is essentially a fancy German way of saying that it's a strong, dark, unfiltered wheat beer. Dopplebocks are usually associated with cooler weather, but honestly, I could drink Aventinus any time of the year. The beer pours a hazy dark brown color with a stark white head of foam, that can crest up and over the rim of the glass. The smell is faintly spicy with a pronounced banana aroma from the yeast. The beer itself is rich and malty with a solid banana flavor, mixed with raisin, and vaguely of bubblegum. The beer is pleasantly carbonated which makes it an easy drinker, but at 8% alcohol by volume, it shout not be underestimated.
Although it claims a German pedigree, Aventinus has a strong local tie. More Aventinus is sold in the Hampton Roads area, specifically at The Bier Garden on Old Town Portsmouth than anywhere else in the world!

Poured a dark ruby color, the color of a British style porter, around 30 to 40 SRM, with a thick, white, long-lasting head and plenty of yeast in suspension. Creamy mouthfeel. Rich, malty sweetness with a mildly tart finish. Aromas of clove and grapes and berries. No hop aroma, mild to no hop bitterness, mild to no alcohol. This is the benchmark for a wheat dopplebock. Rich, complex and fruity.
