look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - This is how a beer should look. A clear ruby brown fluid with some carbonation bubbles going to surface. On the surface the bubbles meet a decent off-white head, which slowly retract to a creamy layer.

S - A malt syrup scent mixed with a strong light sour prickly yeast smell with a sweet touch.

T - What the hell is this! I have never ever tasted something like this before. This is different. All kind of flavors are coming directly after each-other, similar like a jawbreaker. In the beginning the beer is the same as the smell gave away and than after swallowing comes a sour caramel twist.

M - A highly carbonated beer and a bitter sour finish, not something I fancy.

O - Something different,but not my taste.

aroma is a bouquet of plums, gapes, and pilsner and a touch of alcohol

appearance is dark reddish-brown with a thick rocky head that sustains for some time throughout the glass

taste is of grape nuts, plums, grapes and a sweet malt like browned sugar and a touch of light bitterness that comes through toward the end of each sip. has a wonderful clean finish.

mouthfeel is wonderfully full but light with that classic wheat feel and great carbonation. excellent

Pour resulted in a nice deeb brown color with red hints in the light. A nice fluffy inch high white head retains for quite a while. Only a handful of carbonation bubbles can be seen. Small clumps of watery lacing.

Th main scent of this beer is a nice malty aroma. The malt blends nicely with an almost equally as strong scent of banana nut bread. A slight after odor of alcohol to open the nose at end.

A very nice blend of spice flavors includes pepper, anise, and clove. A light malt flavor helps the beer go down smooth. A second taste brings a flavor of raisins and prunes. There is a very faint hit of banana flavor. A light alcohol finish helps to balance the sweetness of the fruits, and the boldness of the spice flavors.

A very nice thick body. A very nice linguering effect of the main spices in the body. Decent carbonation kick.

Overall, great quality. This would be a very nice strong beer to pair with a nice german meal of wursts and sauerkraut. If you like the style of beer this is a definte must try.

This brew poured a nice dark brown pour with a very lively medium head full of medium sized bubbles. It has a very mild cloven aroma. The body contained some yeast residue floating in it. It's taste leaves a lasting impression on your tongue as it goes down. It has a very nice taste with a hint of raisin and at the top of my list, but not the very top. After a few drinks, the alcohol content really comes through.

Here is beer in a purple-label bottle. Last time I had one of those, I ended up with a mouth full of berries. Not this time.

The Aventinus pours with little carbonation and a very slight head. It has a beautiful cloudy mahogany coloring. I would say it looks "dirty-red"

A yeasty smell rises up from this beer with aromas of cherry, honey and apple cider.

There are major flavors of apple and honey in this beer. Also, a slighly bitter aftertaste arises, yet is is nice, like a licorice almost.

It feels fizzy and frothy. Definately a heady drink, full of body. Packs almost too much of a punch.

I love the angle here, but there is something going on with the aftertaste. It leaves a minute sourness which does not detract from the overall impact of the beer, just my desire to have another.

Aventinus poors a deep cloudy brown with hints of amber. It develops a nice thin tan head that settles to a good lace. The carbonation ascending from the stem in the center of the glass was a nice touch. It had a strong malt smell with hints of yeast and fruit. I really was not prepared for the taste. It was winelike with a strong citric bite to it, with nice undertones of sweetness. At times I tasted grapes, cherries, and blackberries. It had a dry crisp feel with a citric finish. A one off beer when a different taste is desired.

I was expecting something nearer a stout. I was pleasantly surprised. I may have to experiment and try it with strong meats to see if that enhances the experience. I was having it with pasta and cheeses and the food seemed to stop the beers tastes.

Poured from 16.9oz bottle into 23oz weizen glass.
A: 3 fingered eggshell white head on top of a hazy dark amber beer. Tons of carbonation coming up.
S: Banana and clove, just what would be expected in a hefeweizen.
T: Banana and clove spices supported by a dark malt backbone.
M: Light to medium body. Prickly carbonation.
D: Goes down incredibly easily. I would never have guessed that this beer is 8.2% abv. Very refreshing.

Wow. One of the things I would have liked to have had in Scheidner Weiss's original hefe was a stronger flavor and this beer delivers just that. This beer is outstanding. All of the flavors you want and expect in a hefeweizen plus the added malt taste puts this as one of my favorite beers.

Bottle poured into Duvel tulip.

A - Deep, dark brown. Large frothy dark cream colored head, with loads of lacing lining the glass.

S - Smell is sweet malts, toffee, and caramel.

T&M - Taste up front has a nice malty sweet chocolate backbone. Cloves and spice are also thrown in the mix. Wheat and hops attribute to the aftertaste, slighty bitter, yet full creamy and dry.

D - Drinkability is average, as this beer is quite filling.

Wondeful example of the style, and definitely a world class brew.

I've always enjoyed a good dunkel-weizen, with the only drawback being a relatively low ABV. I also love a good doppelbock, but it's not a refreshing style of beer. Well, here's a great combination of the two. Refreshing, easy to drink, and plenty powerful! Pours large head (as to be expected), dark and creamy. The alcohol makes itself noticed, and the clovey-spiciness is prominent (along with the taste of banana). Overall, one of the absolute great beers. This is one of my regulars, and I've tried many other attempts at the style -no other comes close.

This is a truely amazing beer! When I first reviewed Aventinus 8 or 9 months ago, I didn't care for it very much... I can only imagine that I a) got a bad bottle or b) have different tastes in beer now. It pours a cloudy brown, with an impressive and persistent tan head. The aroma is a beautiful mix of banana, clove, and caramel. Flavor is quite complex, with clove, fig, caramel, and a touch of banana. Has a full body with medium carbonation, that makes for a very smooth and refreshing finish.

This is a dangerously drinkable beer, and something I can see myself coming back to again and again.
