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!

From bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy brown with a rich, almost pure white head. Dissipates quickly to a vague lacing. The sweetness & malt dominate the aroma & the taste. Very smooth with a rich mouth-feel. Afterglow is slightly sweet, slightly caramel, w/some banana. It's very apparent why this stuff has been around so long. It must have made a few cold night very bearable.

Deep amber brown with good foam and lacing. Smells sweet, like some banana, mango and citrus with a little floral note. Taste is awesome, gentile mix of fruit with a bread like feel and nice floral notes mixed in. The finish is a little dry with notes of banana and a mild malt. Overall a very very good beer, this is my first try and I have to say I will be back for more.

Bought this bottle to change it up a bit, and I'm glad I did.
Poured into a stemmed glass, the body is a ruby red/brown, slight haze from yeast i imagine. great cream head that slowly fades to a film, the ring remains strong throughout. Not much lacing to speak of.
aroma is loads of clove, and it's quite nice. sweet but not cloying. it's got some herbal qualities, and what i associate as classic European hops. slight caramel.
This really is a beautifully made beer. the taste matches the aroma, leans sweet but not too much. nicely carbonated, and has a medium +, silky mouthfeel.
Really glad i bought this to explore a new style, something i rarely do,

Very dark brown pour, but not overly thick. Cola head, 1/3". A bunch of alcohol in the nose. A lot of dark fruit, overripe pruno notes.

Taste is more alcohol heat, brown malt, prunes, figs, cabernet, raisins, dates. Why the hell do people like this? I guess there is some crossover for quads and bocks.

There's some banana and dark wheat feels. A little bit of smoke. Just not my jam.

L....brownish...half finger head...nice sticky lace...heavy carbonation.
S....banana..clove...spicy
T....Quite Marvelous...1st taste out of the stein was molasses like grammas cookies..sweet...hint of anise...roasted malts...coffee...bananas...bready...blended nicely with the alcohol.
F....smooth...slick...creamy...nicely carbonated...maybe just a hint of too much candy store.
O....very well crafty beer..too many and you might get spoiled from your regular brewsky. I prefer the tap 7 but this beer is a head to toe experience.
