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!

Just found my notes on this. I poured this into a weizen glass. The appearance was a nice dark brown to almost black color with a decent one to two finger white foamy head that dissipated within about thirty seconds and ends up leaving a decent amount of foamy lacing. The smell was wheaty yet had a nice allocation of dark chocolate malts and some nice banana coming out to assist in a wonderful aroma. The taste was basically sweet through the chocolate and banana and the wheat ended up backing all of that up in a decent manner. There was no aftertaste and yet there was a slight dry sweet banana finish. On the palate, she sat about a medium in body and wanted to show a decent sessionable quality to it, but for the most part, it really wasn’t. I sipped this and enjoyed it thoroughly that night I had it. Overall, in my opinion, this was a nice beer and a great weizenbock.

une mousse marron de taille moyenne. L’arôme de bannane, de pruneau, et clous de girofle. Le goût est très intense au début et s'adouci peut a peut, fruits noir, levure, blé, et un peu d’épices. Une très bonne biere!!!

Una bombardata alcolica con un gusto prevalentemente dolce, di malto, caramello e banana. Tutto sommato abbastanza stomachevole, ma sa farsi apprezzare in caso di bisogno.

Bottle. Dark brown with a large creamy white head. High effervescence and looks very inviting. Over ripe banana galore, raisins, prunes, nutty, warming alcohol, a little dark chocolate and cocoa, light clove like spicy things. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, sweet but overly so. Silky soft and gentle and the alcohol is well concealed, so it drinks pretty easy. Lingering banana in the finish.

Un violet très sombre avec une mousse marron de taille moyenne. L’arôme de pruneau, banane, et clous de girofle. Le goût est très intense avec du malt, fruits noir, levure, blé, et un peu d’épices. Pas onctueux en bouche, plutôt lourde! Une bonne bière intense.

500 ml bottle. A very hazy dark brown beer with a medium light brown head. Aroma is sweet with notes of roasted malt, raisins, plums, bananas and alcohol. Flavor is sweet with notes of banana, dried fruit, wheat, light yeast and a warming alcohol finish. Excellent, world class beer! Great for winter.

Bottle. Startled because of gushing (twice, different bottles). Fortunately, both aroma and taste make up for that. Strong banana and grainy impression in the aroma, pleasant oxidization lurking out, matched perfectly by doughnut hints. Pours dark brown, hazy, with a quickly dissipating head. Booze and banana in taste, leaves some mild burning sensation in the throat. On the whole, apart from opening the bottle, I enjoy every aspect of drinking this gem
