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!

Questa eisbock fa davvero il suo sporco lavoro. Colore marrone scuro con schiuma poco persistente, 12% si sentono tutti sin dal primo sorso, accompagnati dall’aroma e sapore di banana e frutta. Naturalmente molto dolce e caramellata.

Dark brown colour with almost no head. Aroma of dark fruits, bananas. Taste of dark fruits, bananas, roasted malts with little, but well balanced alcohol presence. Nice malty aftertaste which is very well balanced. Overall: Justifiable is this beer on the first place in this rang. Beer with strong caracter.

Piwo o niesamowitym zapachu- mnóstwo owoców, suszone śliwki, rodzynki i banany, do tego zapach ciemnego chleba, delikatna wędzoność. W smaku jest gładko, nie czuć zbytnio alkoholu, przyjemne nuty karmelowe, wędzone, świetne piwo w swoim stylu.

Bottle. Dark reddish brown with a huge aroma of flambeed bananas, rum & raisin and wood. More of the banana-y yeast on taste, along with dark German bread and dark fruits, with a warming alcohol to back it all up. Taste doesn’t quite live up to the stunning aroma, but I’m not just going to sit around sniffing beer all night.

What a beer! Malty like a dopplebock but with a smooth palate from the wheat. A very drinkable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle poured. Pours a dark brown color with a ton of fading head. Grainy, and slightly sour grape and dark fruit aroma. This doesn’t taste half as strong as it is. Smooth dark berry flavor with some spice. High carb, and a little sour. Overall a great beer. Very impressed here.
