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!

Bottle. Pours reddish brown with a beige head. Aroma is of caramel, dark fruit, wheat, and alcohol. Taste is of dark fruit, caramel, sugar, and wheat. Has a very sweet taste to it. Lingering taste of dark fruit and grass. The alcohol is there, and it provides a nice warming effect. The mouthfeel is almost syrupy, and very sticky. Body is medium, and very carbonated. Its not bad at all, its just not really my thing. Don’t think I would drink it again.

Cimbasso (482) - - SEP 15, 2015
Hazy, deep, reddish brown with a healthy beige head. Aromas of toffee and butterscotch. Very rich taste, with flavours of toffee, wheat beer, ripe banana, marzipan and wood. High alcohol which gives this this beer a strong backbone, without overwhelming the balance of the taste. Really delicious and highly drinkable.

DutchMark (291) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2015
Quite an experience. Deep red brown with a small beige head and soft prickly carbonation. It has a sticky rich sirup texture. The alcohol is obviously there but not too dominant in the flavor. Taste is sweet toffee, cherries, dried fruits, marzipan. Could easily serve this instead of a desert wine.

Schneider Weisse Aventinus Eisbock. Espetáculo de cerveja! Caramelo, ameixas secas, álcool perceptivo, aquecendo o paladar. Hoje o sábado foi pra provar que as cervejas alemãs, mesmo as tradicionais, estão bem longe do perfil "engessado" que tentam atribuir. Espetacular. Ein Prosit! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thmsboyd (166) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle BBE: 05.03.2020. Cellar temp. Pours a deep, dark, hazelnut brown with minimal head. High intensity nose, with prominent candy banana, glace cherry, clementine, durian and sweet sherry. Ripe red fruits dominate the taste buds, with a high-medium sweetness and a tart sharpness the earliest sensations on the tongue. A light-medium dry bitterness eventually settles. Full-bodied with a syrupy texture, the carbonation is medium, and the finish alcoholic. This is a beast, but the concentration of Aventinus slightly detracts, rather than enhances the beer

koshack (823) - Gdańsk, POLAND - SEP 5, 2015
Piana kremowa, obfita. Opada bez śladów na szkle. W aromacie intensywne owoce. Lekka winna nuta, trochę alkoholu. W aromacie przypomina winiak. W smaku tez podobnie. W smaku kwaskowe z wyraźną goryczką. Trochę wychodzi pszenica. Nuty rodzynkowe, likierowe. Trochę suszonych śliwek. Alkohol dobrze zamaskowany, ale mocno grzeje w przełyku. Piwo złożone w aromacie i smaku. Bardzo dobre. Piwo dość gęste, mocne i aromatyczne.

In bottiglia a circa 3 anni dall’imbottigliamento. Colore marrone scuro, quasi nero con velature rossastre, schiuma poco persistente. Aroma di frutta secca, fichi, nocciola, frutta sotto spirito. Al palato molto corposa, frutta secca, datteri, fichi, nota etilica ancora un pò pungente. Finale intenso fruttato, lieve tostato e cioccolato.

Bottle. Pours murky dark amber with large foamy off-white head, sweetish caramel aroma, high carbonation, sweet toffee-caramel taste with fruity undertones, full body, long caramel finish. Very flavorful and satisfying.
