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!

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2016 Dark fruit smell...OK strength appearance is mix of red and dark dark brown, taste is wonderful! The dark fruits are complex and ubiquitous... Hint of smoky sweetness and a good feeling alcohol burn...strong but smooth...

Quick3Beers (625) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Pours a rich hazy brown from a bottle. Boozy caramel aroma, peppery caramel flavor, wheatiness too, like a sweet loaf of homemade whole wheat bread, lots of sweetness and spice. Very good beer.

guzgorog (580) - FRANCE - JAN 9, 2016
Magnifique couleur brune caramel, fine mousse beige. Nez complexe sur la levure (banane), les fruits confits, l’alcool. La bouche est remarquable et complexe, banane, pain frais, marron, fruits secs, l’alcool est très présent mais toujours bien balancé. La longueur est fabuleuse, le corps rond, liquoreux, bière un peu sucrée, très peu d’amertume, la carbo très faible (probablement du à la congélation). Un régal, plutôt à reserver en fin de repas.
