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!

Turboninja (97) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Strong aroma with banana, sweet fruits and caramel. Dark brown/orange with hazy liquid. Minimal, natural white head. Strong, very balanced taste with dominating banana, caramel, toffee and fruits. Alcohol quite present but stylishly in background. Wide taste spectrum and long aftertaste with banana, sweet fruits and caramel. Thick/medium palate with medium/light carbonation. Overall a "supercharged Aventinus". A hint of extra malts and thickness could be rewarded by 5.

BitchPls (594) - FINLAND - DEC 3, 2014
Dark brown beer with a dark beige foam. Banana, yeast, ash, bread, caramel aromas. Reminds you of sahti aromawise. Crispy mouthfeel. Banana, a lot of sweet liquorice and a little bit saltiness as well. Has a twist of anis too. A lot of flavor and spicyness. The strong taste makes this a slow beer for peaceful moments.

Jyrsa (101) - - NOV 22, 2014
Pours clear with an off-white head from a bottle. Very murky but surprisingly light brown. Nose has banana, sweet malt, alcohol and chocolate. Mouth is Liquorice, fruits and a nice bouquet of malty flavours. Taste is sweet with maybe a hint of saltiness. Body is full with a sticky texture and finish is medium. A nice way to celebrate the first snow of the winter.
