look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into my Aventinus weizen glass.

5.0 A: Opaque dark brown color. Plenty of frothy head that won't quit and leaves lots of lacing.

4.0 S: Tons of banana followed by a spicy clove torrent.

3.5 T: Much, much more earthy than I was expecting. Esters in the nose are for the most part MIA. There's still a bit of spiciness to it though. Crystal malt flavor apparent, but lacking the sweetness I usually get from a weizenbock.

4.0 M: Medium body. Bubbly carbonation with an otherwise creamy backbone.

4.5 D: Very drinkable for a weizenbock due to the low level of sweetness.

Appearance: Pours a near clear, brown-amber body with a fluffy, downright voluptuous, off-white head.

Smell: Dark, sweet-scented wheat malt aroma full of notes of cocoa, caramel, banana chips, dark fruit, and with a particularly fragrant spiciness and minor whiff of peppery alcohol.

Taste: Deeply toasted wheat malt flavor with tastes of spiced chocolate powder and a bit of dark caramel candy. Heavy-handed dose of cracked cloves and cinnamon. Raisin-flavored bubblegum and banana fruitiness. Spicy, slightly herbaceous hops with a subdued bitterness. Sourish yeast quality. Dovetail of spicy phenolics and sweet malted wheat in the final tastes. Finishes malty and warming with a lingering spiciness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-high, lively carbonation. There's a delicate touch of stickiness to the mouthfeel.

Drinkability: Recommended. An exemplary weizenbock full of fine complexities to savor and indulge in.

Just like the flagship Schneider Weisse, this is an all-around good and tasty Weizen with great ingredents and a great strain of yeast.

Smells like a Dunkelweizen on the nose, not overly pungent with malt and banana aroma, and in the's much the same, only more intense and malty, with maybe a little too much alcohol taste.

This beer is the originator of its style, and, as such, is a standard in a small but exceptional selection of beers, but I'll get into raving about the characteristics I find in this beer when I have time to write a review on the Schneider Weisse.

Poured a cloudy caramel/brown sugar color in my snifter. The head came and went...shazam. Lace disappeared early too.

Smell was of banana, a little clove and a little citrus.

Taste was fruity and malty with a slight hint of vinegar after the swallow. Hops were minimal, which is to my taste. Mine was a 2007 for what it's worth.

Good mouth feel and body. I'll prob come back to this one, but meanwhile, too many beers...too little time.

Decided to give this one a try after having the Schneider weisse original.
Pours a murky burnt caramel with three fingers of a solid tan cloud like head. Nice thick lacing. Sings of some lively carbonation. Very, very inviting.
Banana, clove and some light citrus up front in the nose followed by a touch of sweet malts and some caramel.
Bananas and clove mixed with some chocolate, caramel and some dark fruits in the taste. Finishes off dry and with a hint of alcohol. No hop presence.
Mouthfeel very well balanced between the fruits and the sweetness. Smooth, smooth, smooth. 8% ABV is well hidden, making this an easily quaffable brew.

Overall, an excellent weizenbock. I don't know how much that means, with Aventinus being my first one, but man was this tasty. I thought the appearance was the highlight of this brew. Found the sweet malts a little bit too sweet, but nothing offending. I will probably be buying another one of these down the road after I sample a few other weizenbocks. Maybe then will I truly appreciate how good this weizenbock is compared to others.

Had the pleasure of a vertical sampling: 2009 followed by 2004. What a difference between the two!

Both years poured a dark amber, with a generous white head with small bubbles. The older beer was clear, while the newer one was cloudy.

The fresh beer had the distinct wheat beer aroma and flavor, which was noticably absent from the aged bottle. The aged was more of a straght, hard dopplebock, while the fresh bottle had a solid weissbier flavor that was also very pleasing on a somewhat warm evening out by the barbeque.

Both bottles were wonderful. Highly recommended.

Stumbled upon this while shopping for some Ayinger Celebrator. The clerk suggested that I might like this as well, so I invested in a bottle.

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Nice dark amber to chocolate, with a two-finger beige head. Not as hazy as one would expect from a non-filtered wheat.

S: First impression was fruity, and even perhaps grassy. Once the head deteriorated, I could detect more of the clove & banana notes.

F: Mmmmm. Really well balanced. Had a wee bit of alcohol coming through, but you'd expect that in a doppel.

M: Not overly thick. Carbonation was nice, and not flat or fizzy.

D: An impressive hybrid in my opinion. I'll buy more of it. Not a good session beer at 8.2% ABV, but good for a nice one-off now and again. Serious stuff!

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Aventinus has a cloudy mahogany body, with plenty of light-tan head.

S: The aroma is very enticing! A robust scent that includes cloves, citrus, bananas, caramel, and a touch of chocolate malts.

T: The taste is a bit disappointing after such an outstanding aroma. The finish is very faint, which kind of ruins the overall impression. Despite that, this beer is very well-balanced and has enough complexity to it. It tastes more like a dunkel-weissbier than a doppelbock, though. Has a nice banana/cloves profile, combined with some chocolaty notes and a touch of caramel.

M: Medium-bodied, very smooth and satisfying overall.

D: Very drinkable for a 8.2% beer. I'd say this is more drinkable than most doppelbocks out there.

Served in my .5L weizen glass.

A: Two fingers of off-white head over a delicious dark brew of hazy chocolate and caramel-colored hues; yeast particles both in the head and settling at the bottom. Lovely!
S: Heavy, refreshing wheat aroma complete with bananas, light clove and some spices, and eventually an enchilada/mole sauce smell. Not sure where this came from, but it made me want to eat some Mexican!
T: Refreshing wheat and damp grains (not quite "wet", but not completely "grainy"). Great flavors that imitate the aromas, particularly the cloves and spices. Hints of caramel and light chocolate malts. Sweet fruits, as well. A sour kick meets up with my mouth at the end of the sip.
M: Light on the mouthfeel, but the carbonation is great!
D: Did I mention this is incredibly refreshing? Each sip throws out new and different characteristics. I look forward to more weizenbocks!

Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a bright reddish brown color, with a short off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of wheat, caramelized malts, some fruit, some spice and a touch of hops.

T: The taste is very well-balanced with bready flavors of wheat and yeast up front. Then there are sweet flavors of bananas, caramel and dark fruit that quickly follow. The malt character is hearty and the hops presence is mild but both seem to work very well in this beer. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Tasty and very flavorful, goes down quite easily, not too filling, good kick, excellent representation of style, this is a style that is difficult for me to figure out because I find such diversity in the beers that I've had in it, but this beer is definitely one of the best Weizenbocks I've had. This is a very good beer to drink for a long time.

look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Cloudy, translucent copper color. Fizzy white head that quickly fades to a skim and collar.

Smells of cloves, raisins, spicy fruit, banana and booze. Smells like something I'd want to drink.

Tastes like spicy caramel with yeasty, clove saturated rum raisins. Creamy mouthfeel with no yeasty snap, though at times syrupy. Seems like something sugar plum fairies would drink.

I'm usually skeptical about beers on the top 100 due to the fact that I believe most are just considered great because no one can get them. This stuff really, really, really good.

My Bottle claims 8.2% ABV, I'll consider the extra .2% a gift
Poured 500ml into 14oz mug (Note to self find proper glassware) Freshness Date- Oct.22.09

Appearance- Glorious rich oak brown body, its also misty in clarity. A moderate head that looks rather creamy with uniform cous-cous sized bubbles. The head then fades within a minute to thick lacing rings.
Smell- Sweet fruity notes of spotted bananas and sour apple and chocolate malt. Major yeast bottle conditioning notes as well over powering toward the end of the beer.
Taste- Very strong bottle conditioning, it a new experience for me, once past that flavors really emerge and its amazing with the smell just as the taste, bitterness from the malt and sourness for the BC. This beer is really complex and very few minutes it seems to change character, very pleasant.
Mouthfeel- Very big and bold present in each sip. The limited carbonation was just what was needed. The alcohol was somewhat in the background, but ever present.
Drinkability- Its like being on a rollercoaster, the experience is overwhelming but everytime you find yourself waiting back in line.

Outstanding its worth the experience to track it down.

Poured from Bottle into Weiss glass.

A- Amber brown. Two finger head appeared when poured.

S- One word heavenly. Delicous blend of spices and fruit.

T- I have to admit that im a sucker for clove. I taste a strong clove presence in this beer. A fruity taste in the background, bananna apple. The higher alcohol % is well hidden. Nice lingering aftertaste.

M- Creamy. Fairly well carbonated.

D- Definitely drinkable. Might have to limit myself to one or two.

A-Veiled deep reddish amber. Nearly opaque when held to light. Creamy dense tan head.

S-The bananna hits you right away, A spicy earthiness, perhaps clove and brown sugar, like something one would smell in raw cake batter. Enticing.

T-Sweet creamy bannana bread with raisins and a yeasty opener, with a mild bitterness mid palate, and, unusually, a dry sweet finish. Huge complexity here, and the flavors totally mask the ABV.

M-Mouthfeel on the heavier side, with some amped up carbonation, but the density can handle it. Syrupy, but actually lighter than I expected.

D-This one hit the exact spot I was looking for tonight. Another, hell yes, probably not back to back as this is a singular experience, but a definate buy again beer.

This was a really nice surprise. I'm not at all familiar with this style so forgive me if I say it reminds me a bit of Chimay Blue. I have had this sitting in the cellar for some time and was never motivated to crack it open, but I'm sure glad I did!

Don't know a whole lot about this one, but decided I'd try it.

Appearance - Very deep amber/red. Almost looks chocolate brown. A nice inch of head that lingers.

Smell - Spicy banana bread. Some clove. Plenty of banana. Some lemon. Some funky hefe yeast action. Orange peel. Some spice, almost Belgian like.

Taste - A spicy tang up front. Definite citrus, balanced with the spice. More maltiness than with a hefe, that's for sure. A sweet lingering taste. Some toasted malt, a little of that banana, and some earthier, prune like fruitiness. A slight hint of alcohol warmness. Also, the slightest chocolate is evident.

Mouthfeel - Excellent. Good carbonation. It coats the tongue beautifully. Not too heavy. Crisp. Just great.

Drinkability - Hmmm. Probably the lowlight. That spicy banana thing, especially with the sweet follow, makes this one hard to put away. One will be enough, thanks.

A very good, interesting, and complex beer. It's got a lot going on. It does have a sweetness, stickiness of the banana that just hangs around too much to make me really love it. Still, an excellent beer, and a great style.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a weizen glass. Back label had some bottling codes but couldn't translate into a date. It was ruby brown color. Massive amount of carbonation. Sliding initial lace that doesn't stick.

The aroma was amazing. Over-ripe banana, clove, vanilla in front with chocolate malt in back. I love the smell of wheats and this one was outstanding. I find most weizenbocks to be overly dominated by dark fruits and less enjoyable but this one nailed it. The taste was exceptional. Awesome from start to finish. Great wheat beer taste. Since the aroma was very sweet, I was worried that the taste might be too sweet but it wasn't. Great balance to keep it from becoming cloying. A pleasure to drink. Only complaint on the mouthfeel was a tad too much carbonation.

Overall, an world class beer. Most highly recommend. I had one of these for the first time several years back and it was awful. At the time, it was my first weizenbock so I assumed it was the style. I'd have several weizenbocks since then that were good but had been avoiding this one till now. So glad that I finally gave it another shot. My last try must have been a seriously bad bottle. I still remember the horrid aroma and bitter taste. Now that I've had the real thing, it will be a major player in the rotation.

Pours a deep dark brown with a thick head that kind of died out. Lots of carbonation bubbles going on inside the glass. Yeasty sweet aromas with some floral notes. OK smell, but not great. Yeast, sweet alcohol, fruity banana and toasted malt flavors. There is a clove spiciness to this beer in the finish. Good mouthfeel, not too watery and good carbonation that tingles the tongue and adds to the spice. No off flavors, everything in the beer blends extremely well and doesn't step on one another, good balance. The good thing about this beer is after the initial alcohol shock on the first taste, it mellows out and gets better and better as you drink more and more. The beer changes and different flavors start to come out as the alcohol flavors fade to nothing. I can still taste the clove five minutes after the last sip. Very nice.

Vintage 2004...

Poured into a goblet. A clear dark amber color with no head, just a little fountain of bubbles coming up through the middle of the glass.

There is a strong apple juice, plum, cherry, and port aroma coming off the beer. Very nice.

The yeast has settled out of the beer and now there is no apparent clove or banana spice. The flavor mimics the aroma very closely. An apple, cherry, plum, and sherry-like flavor with a touch of caramel in the background. It is a very balanced and smooth flavor. No apparent alcohol flavor, just a tiny burn in the finish.

The smooth mouthfeel is still there, but maybe a little more watery due to the yeast and proteins settling out of the beer. Still has a good body and a nice warm spicy carbonation.

Whether it's fresh or aged 8 years, this beer is still great. One of my all-time favorite beers. It's amazing how different the beer is when it matures and the yeast settles out.

Appearance: Poured with a large light tan foamy bubbly head, that dissipated quickly to a thin layer leaving just about no lacing. The beer is a cloudy orange brown color.

Smell: Fruity and spicy!! resembling bananas, apples, pears, ripe cherry, cloves, and some sweet maple caramel. Ends with the smell of alcohol.

Taste: Sweet, fruity, and spicy! Tastes like caramelized bananas, clove, cinnamon, ripe pear, sweet toasted pecans, and very ripe cherry or plum. Has a small alcohol presence but not 8% worth.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, slightly syrupy, perfect amount of carbonation, and leaves mouth SLIGHTLY dry

Overall: Very drinkable, the alcohols is hardly noticeable, great flavors, I think that each time I drink this stuff I will find something else in the flavor or smell.

First, let me warn you: this is one super carbonated beer. As soon as I popped off the bottle cap the head began to rise inside the bottle and I quickly had to grab my glass to save myself from a mess. So, consider yourself warned.

Appearance: Poured out of a 500 ml (16.9 ounces my calculator tells me) bottle into a Paulaner weizen glass. This beer pours a very dark golden brown color with an enormous off-white head. Once I swirl the remainder of the beer inside the bottle and add it to my glass a heavy amount of yeast sediment can be seen floating in the beer. Holding this beer up to a light reveals an absolutely insane amount of carbonation bubble rising from the bottom of the glass, and it reminds me of those thermal vents on the ocean floor you see videos of. The head looks very soft and pillowy and lingers for a long time, but surprisingly leaves no lace on the glass.

Smell: The nose of this beer showcases its very strong phenol aroma with bananas and apples being the most prominent. There is also a strong clove presence, along with hints of crystal malts and light brown sugar. The nose is fairly reminiscent of spiced apple cider, but with a much stronger malt presence.

Taste: This beer starts off with a strong amount of sweetness and yeasty, bready, malty flavors; moves to a complex fruitiness and spiciness; then fades to a rich, syrupy sweetness at the end intertwined with a moderate amount of alcohol flavor. Along the way there are notes of banana, clove, and vanilla, along with a slight hint of chocolate from the malts. The finish brings the clove phenols to the forefront, along with a pleasant warming effect from the alcohol. The spiciness and warmth of the finish would make this a good winter beer for when you're sitting in front of a fire.

Mouthfeel: This beer is medium bodied with a good amount of creaminess and carbonation. Unlike some of the other reviews, however, I don't think this beer is too carbonated for the style or too carbonated to adversely affect the mouthfeel.

Drinkability: Despite the fact that the alcohol is faintly present in the finish it is in no way overpowering, and this is one highly drinkable beer. This beer has all the drinkability of a good Dunkleweisse but a much stronger malt flavor. All of this adds up to make for one great beer.

Notes: BJCP history for this style tells me that "Aventinus, the world's oldest top-fermented wheat doppelbock, was created in 1907 at the Weisse Brauhaus in Munich using the 'Méthode Champenoise' with fresh yeast sediment on the bottom. It was Schneider's creative response to bottom-fermenting doppelbocks that developed a strong following during these times", and I feel blessed to be able to drink "the original". Whether or not that means this is the best is up for debate, but only time (and me drinking more Weizenbocks) will tell. If you're a big fan of wheat beers or of any of the similar styles, be sure to give this one a try.

Appearance - Cloudy light brown/red with a decent off-white head that sticks around

Taste - Sweet with a mild fruity dry mild and then sweet returns. Spiciness that is awesome.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated with a light to medium body

Bottle into Weizen glass.

Pours straight up hazy brown, big foamy off-white head that .

Nose is brown sugar, hints of banana, and cloves. Lots and lots of cloves. Lightly toasty, just a bit of dark fruit, some spicy alcohol in there as well.

Taste is sweet - caramelized brown sugar, some banana and clove, some lightly tart cherry and fig presence without over-asserting, crisp and fairly light from the wheat, which pokes its head out towards the finish just a bit. Some spicy alcohol, and a noticeable earthy bitterness towards the finish.

Mouthfeel is crisp, light, effervescent, with a bit of warmth from the alcohol.

Drinkability is good. Lighter in body because of the wheat, but with just a bit of warming alcohol.

Just realized that this will be the first Weizenbock I think I've ever had. Picked this bottle up at Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA for $3.49.

Pours a medium-dark copper with a two-finger thick off-white head. Big chunky foam dissipates after a minute or two, leaving a resilient halo around the rim. Nearly opaque at first glance, Aventinus is revealed to be much clearer when held to the light.

Nose is dominated by dark fruits and banana, with a solid caramel and spice presence. A distinct yeasty breadiness starts the first taste off, with banana, vanilla, and roast malt rounding things out. Finish is spicy at first, leaving the mouth both bitter and banana-filled.

Mouthfeel is somewhat light and smooth, but the depth of flavor and weight on my tongue has me calling this a medium-bodied beer. The 8.0% abv is well-masked, and carbonation is medium to high. Despite not being very noticeable on the nose or tongue, the higher abv is evident in its warming effect after each swallow.

While I definitely enjoyed my first Aventinus, I have to admit that I was expecting something a bit different after reading all the rave reviews. It's an excellent beer (one that I will almost certainly seek out and review again) but not one of my favorites at the moment.

A: Imposing orange tinged spiced cider with active carbonation, and a swirling tornado of yeast. The eggshell head; unfortunately, doesn't stick around long and only leaves patches of lace.

S: An excellent mix of bananas, cloves, walnuts, and baking chocolate, plus a whiff of alcohol.

T: The aromas from the nose transition seamlessly into the flavor. A nutty banana-bread flavor starts things out. A heavy clove bitterness is held up by a mild alcohol burn. Goes down somewhat warm, with a lingering clove aftertaste. Finishes tart and dry with a strong lemon snap.

M: Medium body is grainy. It doesn't have quite the level carbonation I was expecting.

D: It's snowing outside, and I'm home from work watching flakes swirl through the air and rain down upon the ground. My beer and I are safe and warm inside the house. I'm thoroughly enjoying its company.

Pours a reddish brown color with a creamy foam. Minimal lacing.

Lots going on in the aroma. I picked up a grape wine smell, raisins, and other fruits.

Taste is complex as well. Wheaty with fruity undetones. Slightly sours at the finish. Chewy in the mouth.

A drinkable brew, though not as much as the hefes by this same brewery. Worthy of purchase.
