A - Dark Reddish Brown. Very clear for a wheat beer. Can see my hand on the other side of glass.

S - Malty sweetness in the aroma. Otherwise underwhelming smell

T - Rich Sweet Taste. Strong Maltiness. Very lightly hopped. Awesome Flavor.

M - Medium-Heavy body. Syrupy Sweet. Light to medium Carbonation which balances the sweetness well. Finishes very smooth.

D - Awesome!. Potent but very very drinkable. Super tasty but very smooth.

Go get this beer.

Phenomenal beer. Pours clear mahogany with a small head. Aroma of spices and cloves with some banana. Taste of malts with spice and some darker fruits a little of the hefe banana. Smooth mouthfeel with a sweet finish. The alcohol is totally masked. Will definitely get this one again.

Pours a cloudy brown with ruby highlights.
Aroma of warm banana bread, raisins and pumpkin pie.
Huge thick and malty mouthfeel, nice tight carbonation.
Smooth and warming finish.
Probably the best Bock I've Had.

Poured from a 500mL bottle into my Aventinus weizen glass.

Sienna body with rust highlights topped by a dense yet thin beige crest of foam. Substantial lacing is pulled back down by the clear viscous legs.

Aroma is of wheat, brown bread, nuts, clove, caramelized bananas, malt, and yeast.

Dates, cherry pits, orange peel, and tart yeast on the palate, with a well balanced finish, which refuses to relinquish the impression of fresh brown bread. Delicious.

Velvety rich mouthfeel, though lighter-bodied than I expected; then again, this increases the drinkability. Alcohol is present, but not especially warming. Carbonation is substantial and thick.

The progenitor of the style, which serves as a baseline/standard for other brewers to aspire to (or potentially surpass).

Poured from the 500ml bottle into a weizen glass. Body is a pretty chestnut brown with some dark orange highlights, topped by a big, creamy, light tan head that takes its time working it's way down to a manageable level. Wonderful aroma of sweet caramel malt, wheat, and dark fruit, with notes of plum, white grapes, and some exotic spices (coriander and mace).
Palate is rich and sweet up front, lots of fruity notes mixing with the mild, sugary sweetness of lots of caramel malt and wheat. Plums, grapes, apples, raisins, and orange peel lend the feel of something almost like a holiday fruitcake, and are accented by some mild spices. A slight hint of husky bitterness makes a brief appearance before the swallow before yielding again to the malty sweetness. A lingering apple-y sweetness remains ling after the swallow.
Body is rich and velvety, but not creamy or thick. This is just perfect for the complexity of the flavors here, and better than any other beer I've had of this style. The high alcohol content make it something that I wouldn't be able to handle every day, but it's a very nice slow sipper.

This was recommended to me by the guy at the local beer shop I go to. I was very impressed.

The appearance is great. It pours a dark amber with about 2 fingers of creamy head. Carbonation is shooting up like champagne. The appearance of it just sitting in the glass told me it would be a great beer.

The smell was amazing. I smell cloves, banana, alcohol, and vanilla. The flavors really balance out.

The taste is just like how it smells. I taste the bananas, cloves, some raisins, and a little bit of alcohol but not much.

The mouthfeel was full and creamy, but in a good way.

Overall this might be one of the best beers I've ever had. There are so many flavors and the spices really balance each other out. It's so easy to drink and so refreshing. There are so many flavors that hit my palate at once that it is just difficult to dissect all at once. I don't drink many German beers, but this has opened the door for me. Give it a shot, it's great!

Pours a very hazy brown color with a beautiful creamy and frothy off-white head that retains well. Aroma is very matly with strong, tangy wheat tones, fruity weizen yeast aroma, as well as some notes of chocolate and alcohol. Flavor is intense and beautifully balanced, with notes of tangy wheat, toasted bread, lots of dark fruits in the vein of belgian dark ales (plum, fig, date and raisin), some spice character (corriander and clove), chocolate and some light alcohol notes. Mouthfeel is lighter than expected with a light to medium body and moderate carbonation...creamy and smooth. Extremely delicious and approachable, an excellent beer. Been waiting for this one to show up in NC, and it was worth the wait for sure.

Mmmm boy, that was at tasty one. Very pleased with Aventinus on my vacation in Georgia. Nice copper color which displayed a bit of yeast sediment. Can understand this as a wheat beer with great notes of chocolate and fruit. Very easy to finish. After not drinking for quite a while, I could feel this one, very warm in the stomach.

Pours a dark ruby brown, off-white head disappears pretty fast and leaves a thin film.
Nose is spicey, yeasty, bready, a hint of banana.
Big rich flavors. Clove, lots of spice bread, tobacco, a tiny bit of metallic taste, some fruit.
Nice mouthfeel. Medium carbonation, medium body, pretty clean finish with a nice lingering after taste.
This is one of my favorite wheat beers.
I have a harder time describing wheat beers, I will keep reading reviews to get a better hold of it.

Poured from a big .5l bottle to my Big and bulbous .5l Adventus Weissen glass. The liquid is brownish red and very cloudy with outstanding carbonation. The resulting head is huge and beautiful, 2 finger off white Rocky surface and a wonderful lacing.

The smell is quite complex. Loads of fruit and caramel not quite covering a lovely alcohol aroma.

The taste exceeds the nose, Sweet yeasty bread, lemons, dark fruit, caramel, & toffee. Wow what a winner.

The mouthfeel is very good nice full body, great carbonation, just really nice, no very nice indeed.

The drink ability it great, this is a top world class beer, Nothing bad and almost everything over and above, Prosit und Zum Wohl, MK

500ml poured into a Pilsner flute.

Pours a dark honey, brown with an orange edges. Head seeps up, bubbly and overflowing. White, with a 2 fingers of head with a gentle pour. Clings well, with small clumps following the whole way down.

Banana ester notes are dominated by a strong chocolate malt background. There are also notes of vanilla, though you get a much stronger presence of the fruit esters. The yeast body adds a bit of spiciness in the end, and the alcohol well hidden in the background. All compliment well together, created a very inviting and wholesome presentation.

The aromas are not deceiving in the least. Strong flavors, with rich banana sweetness, with a backbone of vanilla are played against the rich, chocolate malt body. Delicious. Alcohol is nonexistent. A crisp finish leaves you yearning for the next one.

Rich, creamy, luscious mouthfeel.

A bit high in the ABV, but the 500ml is perfect, because anymore would be just too rich. A perfect portion of this amazing beer.

What a treat! Pours a dark amber/orange/red...dark. It started off with a decent finger and a half head that slowly dissipated yet maintained a small head throughout. The smell to me was immediately of cloves and banana. I really nursed this and agree with one of the previous reviewers that the banana taste intensified as the beer warmed. The mouthfeel was smooth especially considering the high abv. For the 8.00% it was highly drinkable and would of loved to have a couple more. Definitely one of my "new" favorites.

Pours a very dark amber with a huge 2 inch head (maybe too aggressive on the pour) it dissapated quickly and leaves little to no lacing.

Scent is of sweet light roasted malts, rasins, bananas and spices.

Taste is quite nice with sweet malts, dark fruits, bananas, clove and finishes dry but sweet with just a hint of hops.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, and even though there seems to be a lot of carbination (maybe too much) in this bottle it leaves me with a creamy feel.

Drinkability is superb. This beer is smooth and almost refreshing (maybe due to the carbination). I would definately be able to drink many more of these.

This is the best weizenbock I have had. 2001 is very much worth the price, almost $7 for 500ml bottle. I am planning on buying another.

Pours a deep brown with good lacing from the creamy top. Fruity and spicy aroma with a clear alcohol presence. The alcohol is covered better in the taste and is more dry fruit and carbonation. Also a tad bit of caramel flavor that goes down smooth and creamy. Remarkably drinkable and smooth for the ABV.

This one just may have made it to my top 10 list. (It's a short list overall -- I live in Alabama).

Pours a cloudy dark brown color with a thin white head that fades. Smells of sweet wheat. Tastes of a brown ale and dopplebock characteristics. Good clean wheat and a smooth nutty flavor, but sweet. Mouth is great, a nice rich texture goes down perfectly. A close second to Victory Weizen Bock

Appearance: Poured into a half liter weizen glass. The color is a very attractive dark caramel brown. Three fingers of dense, off-white head developed and dissipated slowly to leave a creamy cap that lasted throughout the glass.

Smell: Very aromatic and awesome. Immediate sweet fruit overdose -- banana and apple -- and a lot of clove spice to tickle the nostril hairs. Woooo. It also has that sinister doppelbock edge with caramel and a hint of alcohol.

Taste: A perfect balance between doppelbock and weissbier. The flavor follows the lead of the aroma. Smooth and refreshing wheat, bananas, apples, and cloves; after that comes the toasty caramel malts and alcohol warmth of doppelbock.

Drinkability: Smooth. Creamy. Thirst quenching. Orgasmic. Numbing. I don't know what else to write. My first few sips almost drove me to tears. If there is a heaven, this is no doubt on tap. This is my first experience with weizenbock, and I am without a doubt blown away. Superb.
