Poured into a Sam Smith pint glass.

A: Pours an extremely hazy dark brown color with an incredible yeast haze. Didn't pour any head whatsoever, unfortunately, so I'm docking points.

After much agitation, I was able to get a one-finger offwhite color head with poor retention and lacing.

S: Plenty of banana, cloves, and bubblegum with an additional twist of caramel/toffee and some dark fruit. Unique, to say the least.

T: Aside from the typical weizen-esque ester flavors (banana, clove, green apple), this blends in a darker malt note, giving it a more savory feel and taste over a hefe or even a dunkel. The finish is crisp and very fruity, without being exceedingly sweet or tart. Decent complexity and balance, with excellent drinkability and no palpable alcohol taste.

M: Very well carbonated. The yeast gives the body some heft but never weighs the tongue down with excessive astringency, which is exactly what this kind of beer should do. Slight finishing dryness.

O: I expected this to be excellent...and it is. I tend to prefer my weizens to have a lighter malt profile, but the fact that I still enjoyed this immensely is a testament to its quality.

Burgundy-colored body with brown burnt hues. Huge immeasurable head that lasted almost forever in my Schneider Weisse weizen glass. Thick, meringue-like in consistency. 4.5

Subdued nose with clove, dark fruity malts (tart cherry/blackberry), mild fried banana, and a smidge of bubble gum. Pretty nice. Round aroma. 4.0

Tartness in the flavor. Very fruity with more dark fruit notes like black cherry, pomegranate, and blackberry meld together with juicy banana and clove notes. Nice tart and bitter finish, which is lip-smacking and overall refreshing. Vinous qualities. Totally redeeming. Love the red fruit qualities. 4.5

Aventinus still has some waking carb. Medium body that isn't cloying in any way. Smooth and velvety. 4.0

All-time greatest weizenbock to date. Would love to try this with some age. And, I can't wait to try my Aventinus Eisbock. I suggest you travel down this path. 4.5
