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!

lesifflebiere (1380) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2015
Rouge orangé foncé, texture épaisse, le nez qu’elle présente est de fruits confits (prunes, marmelade, pêches) et de gâteau aux fruits. Bouche généreuse, avec un alcool présent mais qui participe au mélange sans accaparer l’attention. Rappelle davantage un weizen qu’un eisbock. Une bière superbe, un peu à cheval sur deux styles, et trop pétillante pour l’un ou l’autre, mais dont les saveurs et les arômes en général sont divins, complexes et tout à fait exquis.

Nice malt aroma with candy like fruity esters. Appearance is a cloudy brown with an average tan head. Flavor has a rich sweet aroma with notes of plum and prunes. Alcohol is present in the taste. Mouthfeel is full bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, this is a classic eisbock.

gegwilson (1616) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle from the York Beer & Wine Shop. Pours a slightly muddy brown colour with a good thick cream head. The aroma is sweet and fruity with strong hints of booze. The taste is sweet with lots of banana, stewed red fruits, toffee, port, clove and light spice. A huge amount of flavour going on. The alcohol is pleasantly warming rather than being too in your face. Feels thick and creamy in the mouth. My sort of beer. Super stuff.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2015 330 ml bottle
Dark brown ruby red beer with little beige head. Aroma has ripe sweet banana, toffee, licorice and alcohol. Flavor has licorice, sugary sweetness, raisin and ripe banana. Palate is quite full and foamy in the mouth. Finish has mild bitterness but alcohol makes it long. Aftertaste is sweet with licorice, liqueur, ripe banana and salmiakki. Very sweet slow sipping brew, but straight-forward. Gets better towards the end of the glass.

Pours a almost black clour, with a big off white head. Good retention. Smell of dried fruits, spices, vanilla, clove, banana, lemon, alcohol. Medium body, one expect some more. Taste of prunes, figs, whisky, coffee, banana, spices. This is a hell of a beer, complex, rich and one that I sure will buy more.
