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!

[2013] 500ml bottle. Murky mahogany with a thin foamy beige head. Flavors are bread, plums, banana, raisins, caramel and chocolate with spicy and port notes. Alcohol is well hidden. Full body, soft carbonation, liquorous texture.

The best German beer I’ve tried. Body, mouth and evolution in the glass. With graduation powerful but very well treated. With very little carbonation. A bottle of 0,33l, better than a 0.5. One of the things I show that I’m facing a beer honest, coherent, well worked .... just opening it; Remove the plate beers universe opens to a fantastic world of wonderful sensations.

anstei (323) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Bottle from Drinks of the World. Pours hazy brown with a medium head. Boozy nose, but in a rather exciting way. Some wheat too. Sweet taste, still boozy, but I don’t mind, since it fits with the rest of the beer: Lots of fruits, heavy but not too much, fizzy carbonization.

jamaty (1242) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 9, 2015
Marrón tirando a borgoña, con abundante espuma que rápidamente desaparece dejando un cordón. Aroma a hierbas medicinales, y ligero plátano. Algo de alcohol también. Mucho cuerpo y carbonización media. Muy suave y cremosa de textura. Al principio malta, y luego van apareciendo sirope, miel, y recuerdos de frutas tropicales. Y seguro que mucho más (hay sue repetir). Muy compleja. ¿Y el alcohol? Está, no hay duda, calentando todo el conjunto… Muy buena.

.33l pour from refrigerated bottle into a stemmed tulip. Deep brown and nearly totally opaque with a tiny bubby off-white head. Nose is forward-- a little sour smell, a little earthy. Gives a good indication of what to expect. Similar to a sour brown ale. A sour front gives way to a full dark malty body. A little nutty earthiness and then a sour finish. Dark fruit (some plum and lots of raisin) throughout. Not as puckering as most dedicated sours, but way more than your average dark beer. I like it. It feels like there are a lot of flavor levels to pull out. Definitely worth trying.
