Schneider Aventinus has a thick, fizzy, light-beige head and an initially clear, brown, bubbly appearance, that becomes cloudy brown upon swishing and pouring in the bottom third of the bottle. Not much lacing is seen with this one. Aroma is unique- cinnamon powder, wheat bread, molasses, spices, and fruit cake. Taste is of cinnamon, spices, nutmeg, yeast, pepper, monkey bread, nuts, and other things I can’t pinpoint. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Aventinus finishes refreshing, crisp, and surprisingly drinkable. Overall, this is an epic, world-class beer. I beg you to try it.

A: A vigorous pour reveals a raisin colour with a thin head that dissipates quickly, leaving minimal lacing down the glass. Almost appears flat, albeit for the dancing carbonation bubbles.

S: Grasses, banana, plum, orange zest, hints of darker fruits aswell, cloves and other spices, and a soft caramel backbone. Outstanding varied fruit elements, and all aromas working very well together.

T: Mirroring aromas with bold banana and fresh grasses upfront. Other fruits including robust plum, tangy orange, and molasses-like dates, complimented well with the underlying caramel malt backbone. Alcohol well hidden. Detecting a welcoming aftertaste of bubblegum. All in all- very tasty.

M: Full bodied with a moderate-high carbonation, both of which work very well. Fairly dry and chalky with enough oily character. Mouthfeel is exceptional.

D: Why did I wait so long to try this?

Poured from a 500ml Euro style bottle, into a Unibroue tulip.

Appearance: Pours a dark murky brown, with about 2-3 fingers worth of off-white head, that disipates rather quickly, but leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: Tons of dark fruits; plums, raisins, figs. A nice healthy dose of a biscuity malt character follows the fruits.

Taste: Similar to the smell, with the dark fruit flavors coming though staring at the beginning, with the sweet bready malts coming in to round things out a bit at the end.

Mouthfeel: Rich and thick, though it still has a nice crisp, clean finish, that keeps you wanting more.

Overall: Very good brew. Never had a Wheat Dopplebock before, but this one stands up to the best Dopplebocks I've had. Very sweet, but not cloyingly so, just a very well balanced high gravity brew.

A 500 mL bottle from the Boise Co-op, bottled in 11/2011. I've had this one plenty of times before, but an finally getting around to reviewing it. Poured into a tulip glass.

Pours a brown, mahogany color with over an inch of fluffy, light khaki head; moderate retention and a small amount of lacing.

The aroma is of clove, wheat, banana, light lemon and orange citrus, some caramel, date, raisin, and even a bit of toasted sugar. Regardless, the more traditional wheat and clove aromas dominate the nose.

The flavor brings out similar notes, with more emphasis on the caramel and darker fruits. A bit of apple pulls through, and there’s still the noticeable lemon and orange citruses. Banana, clove, wheat, straw, and a bit of earthen grass are all present as well.

Mouthfeel is relatively light bodied and very lively from the carbonation. A refreshingly clean finish keeps one coming back, and the absence of alcohol from the flavor or finish is also commendable.

Overall, a great weizenbock made even better by its wide availability and relative affordability. Being a bit more of an obscure style, I can’t say I’ve yet tasted a better one.

A classic version of the style-- tasty...tasty...tasty.

Pours a cloudy ruby/mahogany brown into the glass with a big head that settles to a heavy film. Minimal spotty lace.

Smells wonderful. Cloves, banana, caramel, fruitiness. A wonderful beer. Thick and creamy mouthfeel. Taste is gentle, no overpowering cloves like some others in the family. Nice comfortable warmth from the alcohol.

Not a beer that I would have multiple of in one session... but certainly one that I crave and enjoy the 16.9 oz portion down to the last drop.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass. Pour is cloudy, hazy dark amber with a monster 3+ finger off white pillow head. Great spotting and lacing throughout. Nose is incredible. Typical weizen characteristics with bubblegum, green apples, banana and cloves. Taste follows the nose quite closely. Big malt notes with a nice touch of the dark notes which is a bit different than the hefe. A hint of fig on the end and a great complex blend which makes it hard to sit down. Hides the 8.2% ABV well. Feels is nice, but a bit watery. Good carbonation aand a bit lively on the tongue. Overall- A great effort and tastes like a hefe on steroids! Great fruit notes on the front, complex throughout. Love the apple quality and the blend of malt bomb and adequate hops. The fig hit was also a welcome surprise. Very solid brew that I will hit again-

Consumed 5/11/12

Appearance: Hazy brown/dark amber body - mostly clear - fizzy, off-white head that fades to a nice ring but leaves minimal lacing

Smell: Holy banana bubblegum, Batman! - unexpectedly yeasty with a ton of ripe bananas, bubblegum, and clove - below the cloud of yeast, malts are actually interesting - wheat, roasted malts, chocolate, and some darker fruits, and some lighter fruits - very fruity overall

Taste: Yeasty dark fruits, dusted with chocolate - clove, banana, and a ton of fruity esters - some alcohol - malts are on the sweet side, lots of caramelized sugar, a little roasted, some chocolate, lots of fruits (especially raisins) - funky wheat, very lightly bitter, borderline sugary, some spices - at room temperature, the flavor really starts to become dominated by alcohol and yeast (not ideal)

Mouthfeel: Medium body, very smooth, nicely carbonated, a touch of chewiness

Overall: Very interesting, not amazing

This is definitely different than I expected. But then again, this is my first Weizenbock... This kind of tastes like a yeasty, more alcoholic German Hefeweizen with some touches of funk and chocolate. Interesting, but it's a little too yeasty with too much alcohol flavor, especially by the end of the bottle.

Pours cloudy dark chocolate brown with a tan head with lots of tiny bubbles. The head dissipates slowly, leaving very little lacing on the side of the glass. It appears to be well carbonated. There are smells of sweet malt, esters such as banana and bubblegum, and alcohol. There are other dark fruits such as raisin and prunes in the aroma as well. The flavor reflects the taste. There are sweet malts, fruit, and bubblegum flavors. There is some alcohol in the taste, but it's not very strong for a beer above 8% ABV. There yeast is also in the taste. There's a mild aftertaste. The body is light with abundant carbonation. The carbonation helps chase away the aftertaste, making this very easy to drink. Overall, this is a fantastic beer with high drinkability.

This pours a cloudy amber brown with creamy foam. The aroma is slightly malty with some bubblegum and cloves as well as banana notes. The flavor is more of the same—I get some bubblegummy banana and clove maltiness as I sip it. Consistent finish. Tasty!
