From the bottle, it pours a hazy light brownish amber with a healthy head. Lacing. The nose gets the bananas, caramel and some alcohol. Classic weizenbock taste - a bit of malt, bananas and some alcohol. Some carbonation bite. Dangerous!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Look: Dark amber to brown. Not too foamy.

Smell: To me, this smells like plums and bananas with a hint of caramel.

Taste: Similar to smell. Has a slight boozy finish. Tastes much better in small sips for me. Tastes like a weizenbock, which is good.

Feel: Nice carbonation and easy to drink.

Overall: This is a solid dark wheat beer. I typically like hefeweizens if im going the way of wheat, but the complexity of this one is top notch. Schneider Weisse is one of my favorite brewers and this one fits perfectly into their lineup.

Enjoyed 10/15/16
Pours a cloudy dark brown with a few
chunks and a sizable, light tan head. Still well carbonated.
Aroma is clove, banana, chocolate, vanilla, a bit of dark fruit.
A complex flavor. Mild banana, clove, chocolate, a bit of dark fruit, leather and nuttiness. A little vanilla and a touch of booze.
Medium, smoooooth and satisfying. Great stuff.

I don't get the hype. 500ml bought at my local getränkemarkt with a bottled on date of 1 March 16 and a Best Buy of 1 March 17. Poured into a weissbier glass with no head in light cola color; the aroma is actually pretty great -- sweet raisin liqueur with a warm yeasty breasy base; taste is on the weak side with a but of peppery/Christmassy spice along with some raisin, brandy, and water -- a disappointment after the smell; med body with med cloy and pretty aggressive carb - fine; overall an ok example of the style but not a great beer imo

As Schneider Weisse Tap 6 Mein Aventinus. A 500ml bottle with a best before date of 19th May 2017 and poured into a Riedel weizen glass.

Appearance: It poured a slightly cloudy dark amber brown colour with a big four finger white head that dissipated slowly to a nice thin creamy cap and left nice lacing.

Aroma: Biscuit malt, wheat, banana and clove.

Taste: Banana bread, brown sugar, clove with a touch of plum, caramel and apple skin.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: Very nice and easy to drink which is great since I can now (finally) get this regularly.

Released in Sweden at Systembolaget September 16, 2016.

The beer brewed in 2012 has a paper lining where you get information what happened 2012 like "Peace Nobel Price goes to EU" and "Barack Obama is re-elected president of the USA" etc.
That's nice! You get a beer and a history lesson at the same time :)

The beer pours clear, brown with a three finger high head that doesn't leave any lacing on the glass.

Nose: Wow! This is beautiful! Raisin, plum, ripe banana, vanilla, cherry, brown sugar, dark syrup, fudge, caramel malt, candied sugar, butter and root beer.
A LOT of wonderful notes going on here!
Taste: Outstanding! Smooth, complex taste of plum, raisin, dried fruit, banana bread, syrup, malt, bread, and butterscotch.
Mouth: Full body and light carbonation. Almost no alcohol taste - It's very well hidden. Smooth and full, complex texture. It's like you fell the years gone by....

Conclusion: If you have the chance - Go get this beer! It's great!
