To me this is the perfect beer. Dark, malty, and high in alcohol without being too boozy. Perfect.

Aventinus weizen eisbock is heaven in a bottle. The first taste will blow away your taste buds. I like this beer because the potent taste of alcohol is so pungent it almost tastes like acetone (but in a good way). I have noticed with this brew you must find it as fresh as possible, stay away from bottles over a year old. After one year much of the flavor depreciates.

Appearance: somewhat dark, yet somewhat light mixture

Smell: pungent alcohol medium hopped yet sweet.

Taste: all around well balanced taste, the alcohol taste will blow you away, in a good way.

Mouthfeel: light-medium, not fullbodied

Overall: at $4.99 a bottle this is worth it. I have never tasted a better beer. I give it an overall rating of 666!

The best German beer has to offer, at least that which is available in the United States.

A: Aventinus is tree-bark brown with a ton of haze. Head is pretty much absent.

S: potent bouquet, dominated by banana with heavy clove and brandy notes as well.

T: perfect balance is achieved through the sweet bananas, the spicy clove, and spicy ethanol. Very delicious

M: heavy carbonation is a nice contrast to the medium body of the brew.

D: this is a must try for anyone that wants to see the extreme side of the hefe. All the same flavors are here, they've just been amplified. Worth seeking out.
