S: dark fruits mainly plums, and pumpernickel
T: dark fruits, peppery yeast, sweetness, dark wheat, sweetens and deepens towards and through the end
M: no carbonation, smooth and thick, leaves the back of the throat feeling sticky
O: Complex and wonderful

16.9oz bottle poured into a weizen glass.

A: Pours a very cloudy carmel brown with a small white head. Only light makes it through this beer, but still some visible carbonation.

S: Some dark fruity malts, banana, clove and some sweet carmel. Fairly light on the nose, hint of spice. Gets a little burnt aroma as it warms.

T: Very smooth banana and clove that is matched with a roasty chocolate quality. Reminds me of a milkshake with lots of banana. Roasty malt and hints of vanilla as well. Alcohol is almost unnoticeable.

M: Creamy and full mouth with ample carbonation. Very easy drinking. Great yeasty finish.

Overall a phenomenal beer that is top of its class. I'm very impressed with how easy going this beer is. Would love to try a fresh pint in Germany.

This is a very good dunkel weisse. Dark color, cream color head that lasts as long as the beer. Slightly sweet and slightly nutty wheat flavor. It is better on tap in Munich, but the bottled tap 6 is almost as good. We bought a case and finished before leaving Germany three weeks later. The first was as good as the last. It is much better, smoother, better rounded flavor that Ayinger Dunkel.

500ml bottle served in a weizen glass.
no freshness info found.

pours a murky cola-brown, almost chestnut, and yields a towering, foamy beige head that slowly recedes to a lasting 1/2" or so. good retention and lacing. nose is very respectable, offering a nice potpourri of banana, spice, bubblegum, and a lot of wheat maltiness.

flavor delivers more of the same but trumps the aroma: ample notes of banana, clove, maybe a touch of dark fruit, apples, and wheat malt. complex and tasty. 8.2% ABV exceedingly well-hidden. great beer. medium-bodied mouthfeel with medium-high carbonation.

overall this is simply an upper-eschelon german brew. not a style i personally tend to gravitate toward, but this one is very good. not to be missed.

500ml bottle. Weizen glass. Enjoyed on jun´12. Amber color, foggy appearance. Light beige froth. Close, lasting crown. Yeast, toasted bread, subtle chocolate, ripe fruit, toasted malt aromas & rum-like fragancy. Sweet tea-like upfront, hints of banana. Chicorice texture. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Ripe melon in the middle, toffee touch. Sweet herbal note finish. Orangish hues on the aftertaste. ABV is perceived as underlying warming sensation at first sip & subtle spicy touch in the middle. One of those beers missed even before finish it.

Appearance: A hazy chocolate or iced-coffee brown with a light foamy, off-white head. Be sure to get all that tasty yeast into the glass! Nice bottle presentation too with the strong purple and gold label.

Smell: Banana and clove, some caramel and sweet almond (like a slight hit of almond extract). A little vanilla, like in a good bourbon.

Taste: Chocolate, banana and sweet caramel are the prominent flavours on the first sip. Those can be really heavy flavours, but the beer remains very clean (more like a wheat beer and less like something heavy like a stout that might share those flavours). There are lots of little notes of things (some rum butteriness? some bourbon vanilla?) which take some time to unravel and require several, several sips. It's a very understated beer, but it's got a lot to offer. It's one of those beers that you could spend the whole time looking for different flavour combinations and have a good time doing it - but, it's also the kind of beer that offers a great easy set of flavours to match with food or relaxation.

Mouthfeel: Crisp carbonation the second it hits your tongue, but after that it's very smooth and creamy. The burn from the alcohol is a little out of balance, slightly too strong, but aside from that it's great. As you drink the alcohol burn feels less out of balance.

Overall: A beer with a lot to offer. Its a classic for a reason. There is no reason not to try this beer if you can easily find it. It's even something to look for if it's not in your area. Very refreshing but also complex. Great, great, great.

This beer is one of the best beers in the world.

I'm not even close to the 1st one to say that.

There is an actual regiment to go thru when poured from a bottle...(Upside down pour and then twirl/roll bottle in hands, to get the sediment that sits at bottom of bottle). When from the tap---the pour is slow because it has a great head.

This definitely is a beer to sit and savor.
If I know an Aventinus is available---I make sure that is the last beer of the evening----cause, nothing tastes as good after drinking an Aventinus.
It's the best lookin' dark beer out there when poured into one of those 20 oz tall glasses with the wide flair at top...(I use a tall Hard Rock Cafe beer glass). It looks like the perfect German beer in a glass that it is seemingly made for.
Very befitting one of the best beers in the world.
Nothing but good things to say about this excellent beer.
