Poured into a Sam Smith pint glass.

A: Pours an extremely hazy dark brown color with an incredible yeast haze. Didn't pour any head whatsoever, unfortunately, so I'm docking points.

After much agitation, I was able to get a one-finger offwhite color head with poor retention and lacing.

S: Plenty of banana, cloves, and bubblegum with an additional twist of caramel/toffee and some dark fruit. Unique, to say the least.

T: Aside from the typical weizen-esque ester flavors (banana, clove, green apple), this blends in a darker malt note, giving it a more savory feel and taste over a hefe or even a dunkel. The finish is crisp and very fruity, without being exceedingly sweet or tart. Decent complexity and balance, with excellent drinkability and no palpable alcohol taste.

M: Very well carbonated. The yeast gives the body some heft but never weighs the tongue down with excessive astringency, which is exactly what this kind of beer should do. Slight finishing dryness.

O: I expected this to be excellent...and it is. I tend to prefer my weizens to have a lighter malt profile, but the fact that I still enjoyed this immensely is a testament to its quality.

Burgundy-colored body with brown burnt hues. Huge immeasurable head that lasted almost forever in my Schneider Weisse weizen glass. Thick, meringue-like in consistency. 4.5

Subdued nose with clove, dark fruity malts (tart cherry/blackberry), mild fried banana, and a smidge of bubble gum. Pretty nice. Round aroma. 4.0

Tartness in the flavor. Very fruity with more dark fruit notes like black cherry, pomegranate, and blackberry meld together with juicy banana and clove notes. Nice tart and bitter finish, which is lip-smacking and overall refreshing. Vinous qualities. Totally redeeming. Love the red fruit qualities. 4.5

Aventinus still has some waking carb. Medium body that isn't cloying in any way. Smooth and velvety. 4.0

All-time greatest weizenbock to date. Would love to try this with some age. And, I can't wait to try my Aventinus Eisbock. I suggest you travel down this path. 4.5

500ml bottle poured into a weizen glass by freshness date.

A:
Dark ruby brown color with thick fluffy and creamy tan head, it slowly sinks with great retention to half-finger of everlasting foamy layer cover on top along with stickiness laces here and there. The carbonation level looks at medium to high.

S:
Blending nicely by mellow ripe banana, plum, prune, raisin, hint of liquorice, bubblegum, caramel, note of floral, phenolic spice and clove, malt is underlying with some crackery and roasted note.

T:
Big fruity esters remind of banana, plum, prune and raisin. Bubblegum sweetness and caramel poke through the taste buds alongside with subtle citrus. Wheat and barley malt lay as base to cater the others. Pinch of clove spice and phenol add more intricacy yet drinkability until the end that mingles with slight but long trail of hop bitterness also with some tartness from yeast strain.

M:
The body is full with super smooth mouthfeel from fine crispness and carbonation. The sweetness dries up the palate, very pleasantly dry.

O:
Maybe the best Weizenbock available out there, it has an exceptional quaffable quality. Very tasty, I can feel no harm of alcohol during the drink but yes it is still there lurking.
