I really enjoyed this beer. Recommended by employee at Sweetwater Package Store in Duluth GA. Hi ABV, but canít really taste it. Rich flavor, malty. My first, and maybe only, wheat beer!

Ruby to copper hue. Thin but lasting lace. Rich malty aroma(typical of style) Richer mouthfeel, almost syrupy(slighty flat soda) long, malty, alcoholic finish. Almost as if they took a bock, froze it, and scooped out some water to leave behind a condensed beer:)

This had a very small head.Color was a red-brown.It was hazy due to floating material.Aroma was of fermented prunes.It tasted of raisins and oranges.Sweet and sour.fairly heavy body.Sticky palate.Finished with biting alcohol.It is a rather complex beer,so I gave it an extra point or 2.I really donít like the taste.Itís not for me,but you may like it.Iím glad I was able to try it.Itís supposed to be an elixor of wheat beer.i think I taste the wheat,though it is the wheat taste minus the water,so itís very strong.Tastes like they evaporated 2 of their wheat beers and combined the solids with some water to make 2 beers into 1.

Killer. Regular Aventinus jacked up. Sweeter, heavier body. More fragrant. Donít notice the boozy qualities until later. heh heh. bitterness is mostly from the dark malts and yeast plus the bittering hops. Had this from a bottle at Bodega Brew Pub downtown La Crosse, Wisconsin

Pours a viscous brown with languid yeast chunks. Aromas of coffee, caramel, citric yeastiness. At first the mouthfeel is very thick but really this is a pretty drinkable beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2007 12 oz bottle - Pours a slightly cloudy ruby red color with small light tan head that quickly dissapates quickly. Aroma is full of dark fruits: dates, figs, red grapes, also with deeply roasted caramel, fairly spicey with notes of black pepper, definite hints of clove, bananna, orange peel, charred oak, bit of hot alcohol, and ever so slight hint of artificial sweetner. Flavor is thick, full of super-chewy malts, lots of clove, deep roasted caramel, touches of bananna, vanilla bean, cream, sour oranges, toasted figs, with pine nuts and sherry. Finish is lugubrious and fairly sweet. A wonderful feast of a beer, somewhat unexpected initially, and quite different from the standard weizen bock from Aventinus.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2010 Darkish brown with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet with banana, strawberry, plum, a dash of spice and a bit of yeast . Rather sweet, and raisiny with a gullet-toasting hit of alcohol. Light on the tongue with lots of fine scrubbing carbonation. Perhaps a bit medicinal, but his is my kind of cough syrup. $4.5/11.2oz

Bottle. Hazy brown colour with a small tan head. Complex fruity aroma of plums, raisins and berries. Sweet flavour and a lot of alcohol. Thick mouthfeel and just too heavy...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma was strongly estery and fruity with a dark caramel and banana presence. Spices were notable and contained cinnamon and clove with a sizeable presence of alcohol. Dark fruits, namely prunes, permeated the nose. The beer was lightly hazy and poured some chunks into the glass. The color was amber and the head which rose tall and fell slowly was tannish brown. The flavor was malty with a strong caramel and toffee character coupled with some sherry notes. Alcohol was present in the flavor and accentuated the malt and spice. The spice was light clove and slight cinnamon. The alcohol warming after consumption was off the charts. The body was full and heading toward viscous, but with a moderate level of carbonation the mouthfeel was creamy. A nice beer for a cold winterís night, tread lightly on this one. 11.2 oz bottle.
