A-pours a cloudy dark brown with about an inch of cream colored head that leaves a thin layer on top

S-sweet and malty, breadlike, hints of banana, clove, and yeast

T-malt flavor stands out the most, banana sweetness, wheat, yeast, and spices

M-medium body, high carbonation, creamy, almost has a smoky finish to it

Overall very easy to drink and is fairly light for how dark it is. A great beer to have.

I just got back from an Octoberfest tasting. While I was there I stumbled upon a conversation about Aventinus between a few veteran BAs. With all the raving, I just had to try it. Man, what a beer!

A gentle pour gave me a huge white head. The color is deep brownish red, cloudy from unfiltered bottle conditioning. Very attractive.

Big bannana and clove on the nose. Lots of pungent sweet fruit character.

Taste of heavy clove and some bannana lingers along with caramel and some rum.

Mouthfeel is smooth and syrupy with a medium to heavy body.

Really quite a beautiful beer, not my favorite style but definitely must be respected.

This beauty is a world class dark wheat brewed within the city limits of Munich, the exquisite capital of Bavaria.

It begins wonderfully: a cascade of cream colored froth that lays in a good six inches until it slowly sinks into a foreboding body of dark caramel; there is no light within and the lacing is non-existent.

The nose is overwhelmed by a vertiable fruit basket filled with apple, pear and banana; all of which is shoved up the nose. Meanwhile, the unsuspecting palate is being seduced with the comely welcome of toasty malt assisted ably by its' short and stocky friend, the innocent plum, who has, in return. brougt along his honey - that is the sweet nectar that is manufactured by horny bees.

The balance is magnificent; well crafted with some random shots of sugar and malt thrown in for good use.

As one who has been to Munich, wandering the random streets leading into the airy and spacious Marienplatz, I can attest that this delicious brew seems to carry one to Munich, albeit without the pricey airfare.

Ein wunderbar bier, naturlich!
