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 1940ís, 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!

pours a dark reddish brown w/ a big off white head that dissapated really quickly lots of carbonation bubbles. Some big aromas.. definate dark plum like a candied plum and raisens, light carmel hints of alcohol Theres something else in the aroma too that is just a little odd and I couldnít place it. Palate is big full rich well coated and creamy.. num num. Flavor is definatelly a big plum and raisen mix a nice sweet malt hints of brown sugar a couple small spices as well a lingering light bitter on my tongue and a definate warm swallow. This is some good stuff. a little odd but I really liked it.

Out of a bottle, thanks Degarth. Aroma eminating from glass, plum and black cherry. Poured a dark brown almost deep plum color as well a thin and quick dissapating head. Flavor was about the same as aroma with perhaps a quick flash of orange peel. Palate was okay. An overall pleasant experience.

bottle purchased at Johnís Grocery Store in Iowa City. aroma of wheat malt, plums and alcohol. pours a dark cola brown with a very quickly fading tan head, virtually no lace. strong wheat eer flavors with plums, black cherries and just a hint of some bread dough and pepper. as I near the bottom of my glass the 12% abv is becoming more apparent!

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Bottle: Deep opaque brown body with ruby highlights and a large light tan head. Large particles are visable floating, then sinking in my glass. Aroma is vinous grapes, white wine, wood, port, light lemon, salty raisins, and an hint of nuts and roasted chocolate towards the finish as it warms. Taste shows the alcohol right from the start, with flavors of alcohol-soaked wheat, sweet berries, mild toffee, raisins, grapes, plums, dry wood, grains, pepper, dried grass, and cloves. Finishes with a light alcohol burn, mild cloves, and dry wheat held in a leather baseball glove. Medium bodied, light carbonation, slick & oily mouthfeel.

Bottle #021686 poured to an instantly disapating fizzy tan soda pop head. The body is a rich brown color that fizzes like pop. Itís fizzing is kinda neat to watch as it dances all around the top of the dlass. The aroma is like a merlot/cabernet wine. Very vinous red grapes and earthy tones. Light raisins. Doesnít even smell like beer. Anyway, the flavor is ultra-malty. Green raisins and alcohol. The palate is horribly dry and over carbonated. I donít like the palate at all. It destroys any semblance of flavor because itís too hard to concentrate on anything but the palate. It thought this beer was going to be good but it surely wasnít. Somewhat offensive.
