Aventinus, the Wheat Doppelbock of Bavaria, has always been known to be the most intense and complex wheat beer in the world. This was the case for the past sixty years, but not anymore...
Up until the 1940’s, Aventinus was shipped all over Bavaria in containers lacking temperature control. Consequently, the precious drink partially froze during transportation. Unaware that the brew was concentrated by the separation of water from the liquid. People were baffled by this unique version of Aventinus. By chance, the first Aventinus Eisbock was created.
Well aware of this story, Hans Peter Drexler, brewmaster of the Schneider brewery, decided to recreate this classic "mistake" in a modern controlled facility. Thus, the Aventinus Eisbock is reborn sixty years later ... Prost!

Anglofile (138) - Piti, GUAM - OCT 15, 2006
Bottle. Pours a dark brown body with a white head. Smells of yeast and malt. Flavor begins a bit malty and finishes with a bite of wheat and alcohol. Alcohol in end is actually refreshing and hits you quickly. Mild carbonation. Very fruity all throughout. Mmmmm. A delicious brew. Lucky to find it on Guam.

can8ianben (1394) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2006
Wow, this is like a punch in the face. It’s difficult to drink, overwhelmed with the strong alcohol concentration. Smokey sweet flavour, almost apple sweet taste. Strong sour syrupy aroma.

muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 29, 2006
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber/brown with tons of floaties, and a minimal tan head. Aroma is dark fruit, barley wine-like maltiness, some oakiness, and alcohol. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, bread, spiciness and a strong warming finish from the alcohol. I actually enjoyed this more as it warmed up, even though it became more sweet and with a stronger alcohol finish.

Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2006
A dark brown, cloudy brew with a small tan head. Pleasantly sweet, almost heavy, caramel flavor. Lightly hopped. Much stronger taste than I anticipated from a Weizen, but then it was much darker than a typical wheat. The aftertaste was also sweet. I felt the need to clear my throat from the residual sweetness. The carbonation was low. There were no sip lines. Dark brown sediment was left in the bottom of the glass. I was left with a nice, alcohol induced warmth.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2006
Bottle. Pours slightly reddish brown, moderately hazy, with some sediment and virtually no head. Aroma has a lot of bananas foster (cooked sweetened banana), with some wheat malt, dark fruits, burnt caramel, vanilla, and port-like hint of alcohol. Flavor is like moderately sweet banana bread up front, becoming spicier and warmed by the alcohol towards the middle, finishing in a long lingering sweet and spicy finish. As might be expected this is like a strengthened version of the normal Schneider Aventinus, and so is also excellent but in a different way. It’s hard to really choose one version over the other, though I think I prefer this one by just a slight bit.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 16, 2006
Bottle: Tawny brown and slightly hazy with no head. Hardcore toffee and concentrated dried fruit aromas (prunes and quince) with a burnt caramel chord presiding over all. The concentrated fruits show again in the flavours. Pumpernikel, caraway, plum pudding, burnt toffee and molasses. Very warming and satisfying, yet this just doesn’t wow me.
