4.95/5  rDev +14.1%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Pured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a dark brown/copper color that is very dynamic. Reds, yellows and browns make up the body. There is also lasting and foamy off-white head that leaves a dissipating lacing.

S: The aroma is a pleasant surprise from such a dark, harsh looking beer. It's sweet in a way. Clove touches the nose first and malts make up most of the aroma. There is a heavy earthiness to it all but the smell is weightless in a way with notes of banana and citrus punctuating it. There is also just a perfect hint of alcohol completing one of the most well-rounded but unique smells I've ever experienced.

T: Complex and transcendent. Immediately contradictory but upon reflection, complimentary. Dark and heavy with alcohol notes, but also fruity and light with malts and banana giving this beer a robust sweetness that isn't sugary or overbearing at all. A little funk, a little hops complete it all.

M: Rich, smooth, light, carbonated, it's really just perfect. There's a little bit of alcohol burn that I want to take points off for, but it is really fine and maybe even beneficial to the feel. I'm usually more harsh on feel, but this leaves me with no room to complain.

O: There are no complaints here. Aventinus is complex but immediately enjoyable. This is a beer that can change perception and change minds on a style or a brewing tradition. It has mine.

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.
