This is a really interesting beer. It reminds me of a cross between a dunkelweizen and a belgian strong dark ale. Very fruity like a belgian and pours a belgian-style head. Not much lacing down the glass, but who cares, the taste is phenomenal. Cherries, plums, and bananas seep through. Heavy alcohol warms in this well balanced brew. This beer attacks your taste buds. An outstanding beer, without a doubt.

I poured a 500 ml capped bottle into a traditional hefe wiezen glass.

A: It poured a murky, cloudy brown body. A moderately aggressive pour generated a massive three finger dark caramel head. The head lingered for a time then receded to a light cover over the liquid. It supported a thick curtain of lacing that did not last very long into the xperience.

S: It had the strong aroma of yeast from the dough of a dark nutty bread and sweet medium roast malts. The sweet aromas were complex and included brown sugar, ripe dark fruits and rich cream maple syrup.

T: It is a smooth and creamy malty brew that has a nice even but pronounced sweetness that coats the mouth. There is no bite to this brew, its all about the balance of malts and yeasts. Its sweetness is not overpowering at all...just a nice balanced bundle of joy.

M: It is a creamy and full bodied brew that is deceptively light on the palate. Its sweet without being syrupy, has a balanced carbonation and strong enough ABV to clean the palate but sufficiently hidden to provide a nice warm glow that lingers long after the swig is gone.

D: It is a wonder of balance...sweet but not too much so, hidden but high ABV, and nice even carbonation. It is full bodied by light on the palate. A wonderful drink that I could drink several of in a session.

Comment: I am becoming a real fan of Weizenbock...and this is the head of the class (so far).

Pours a very dark brown copper color with a nice head that leave little lacing. Spicy and fruity aroma. Flavor is quite complex. Toasted malt and fruit. Spicy and banana wheat flavors. Just a touch of bitterness and a nice lingering sweet taste in the finish. Medium bodied with a lot of carbonation. Pretty drinkable stuff and a really excellent wheat beer overall.

Pours a dark cloudy brown with a off-white thick head. Good lasting power of the head and decent lacing.

Aroma is of wheat, some caramel sweetness and some banana.

Taste is quite interesting. Definitely the alcohol comes through and some clove, wheat and sweetness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and quite cleansing.

Overall, quite drinkable but the ABV tends to limit my intake. Very unique and well worth trying. I'm looking forward to my next one.

Brown, somewhat murky. A big wheat head with excellent retention. Clove-forward on the nose, as the aroma is dominated by a "spicy" wheat character. A little bit of bubblegum and a hint of toasted bread.

Excellent sweet/dry balance as many great German brews show. Malt-forward overall, with a bit of clove. Mild bitterness on the finish. Some mild fruity esters, primarily raisin. Mouthfeel is fairly light with a smooth carbonation, but fades to flatness a bit too quickly.

Aventinus is an excellent wheat bock that's worthy of the praise it receives. Among the few dark wheat beers I've had to date, it stands above the rest.

Pours a dark brown w/ a slight crimson tinge if held up to the light. Nice two finger cocoa head that lingers for a bit. Good carbonation and decent lacing. Nose is that of caramel, apple, pear, malt, spices. Nose isn't as strong as I'd like, but it's still pleasant. Taste is the same profile as the nose, w/ noticeable carbonation. Goes down pretty smooth, w/ big malt/fruit feel to the beer. Fairly dry in the finish and aftertaste- really dry (but not bad). This is a really nice tasting brew.

Re-enjoyed on 08-11-09. On-tap poured into 14oz pint glass (disappointed that the barkeep didn't serve in something more befitting the glorious brew).

A: A muddy, brown color w/ a heavy head that dissipated quickly. More lacing than the bottle-poured.

S: Pleasant, caramel, w/ some roasted malts.

T: Hearty, grainy, fresh bread dough in there. Small amount of sweetness in the caramel. Also a bit of fruitiness. Good earthy taste.

M: A medium to medium/heavy body with sufficient bubbles for the style. Quite smooth. Better mouthfeel than the bottle serving.

D: Very drinkable. This was a fresh batch - much better than the bottle I last had in January.
