Cloudy brown with a nice beige head, which sticks to the glass. Rich aromas of dried fruits, apple, roasted malt and a hint of yeast. Taste starts sour, decent bitter with a light sweetness. Thick texture, with a proper carbonation.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smoked/baked fruit, particularly apples and bananas, which settles into an aftertaste of cheese--brie?--and, in the back of the mouth, oceansmell, or perhaps saltwater taffy or chicken noodle soup (with, perhaps, a tiny bit of coffee with milk), along with a sort of woodsy taste and breakfast-cereal feel. It has an aroma I can’t quite put my finger on, but which reminded me very strongly of something. Old furniture or books? Caramel? No idea. The beer was poured into a Weizen glass from a bottle brought over from Munich.
Just off the top of my head, I might pair it with spaghetti and meatballs, venison, pork, caramel apples, or perhaps turkey, but all of those are just a guess. I would also pair it with a hard day of lumberjacking or a state fair. It would also go well with the "toot sweet" scene, along with others, from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. I haven’t seen it in awhile, but The Glass Bottom Boat would maybe do in a pinch. Would do well drunk in a (Scandanavian) library, although almost everything is better with libraries.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A haze from the yeast deepens this beer’s dark brown while the lively carbonation forms a big, fluffy beige head. The nose is enriched by ripe banana, cloves, milk chocolate, doughy yeast, and a hint of vanilla. The flavor is very rich; the clove note is much more obvious on the palate than in the bouquet, while sweet caramel, banana, and dark berries fan out of the soft yet full body in the center; a little roastiness and alcohol warmth enriches the dry finish while a mild bitterness shines through. Excellent beer. Give Aventinus a try if you get a chance.
