wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - JUN 2, 2006
Tried this side by side with Aventinus Vintage 2001 and enjoyed them both very much. It’s very easy to see and taste the differences between the two. This was spritzier and lighter than the vintage. Very nice and the glass is awesome. It lets everyone in the restaurant know you mean business.

Tranquillity (1792) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2006 Bottle, 500ml. This is heaven. Pours with a very clean head. The colour, mahogany and ever so vibrating will eventually get you. The aroma is full of toffee.
This feels like oil with bubbles. It is so complex it’s hard to understand it. One of the few beers to smoke with a good Cuban. The aftertaste is mature and contains both black chocolate and smoke. The flavour doesn’t get full points because it could be stronger. And more. In the glass.

saxo (16731) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2006
Bottle. Medium head with short duration. Color is dark brown. Aroma is dominated by spices. Taste is sweet and spicy. Greal good weizen bock.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Bottled. Murky, dark amber-brown with a small, frothy, light-brown, mostly diminishing head. The aroma is moderately malty with sweet notes of toasted grain; hoppy with light notes of herb and lemon; lightly yeasty with a light note of cobweb; moderate notes of banana, clove and wood. The flavor was moderately sweet, lightly acidic and lightly bitter with an average-to-long finish with a lightly sweet, lightly acidic. The body was medium, the texture was velvety and the carbonation was lively.

2001 bottle. Highly carbonated (due to age?), poured with a HUGE, white head to compliment a deep red body. Initially smells of grapes/raisins and wheat. The taste follows up the smell - very fruity with low alcohol presence. Letting the beer set for about 10 minutes brings a balance of sugary/sweet flavor and bitterness to the finish.

My first review, so take with a grain of salt. This is just what my young palate was able to pick up. Poured a dark ruby color with a beautiful off-white inch thick head. Nose was slightly chocolate, fruity banana-like esthers. I drank some without the yeast, and some with: w/out: crisp carbonation up front leading to pleasant sweetness in the middle with tons of flavor and complexity I cannot even begin to describe (maybe one day). I did pick up on the spicy clove finish that the bottle describes, and finally an alcoholic warming of the tongue. with: raisney fruitiness giving way to yeasty flavor. Flavors similar to w/out but even more complex and pleasing. The mouthfeel was creamy and smooth--about what I expected. I drank this slightly hungry just to make sure I could get it all down, but I ended up still getting quite full from this beer. I’m sure experience BAs could handle it with no problem, but I got quite full and surely felt that 8.2%. It’s very deceptive. Make sure you take you time with this one. I imagine this would go well with grilled pork chops.

pfhyde (59) - Davis, California, USA - MAY 17, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2006 It was very pleasing to finally find a beer worth writing about here in Regensburg, Germany. Most of the poor lewdies in this town think highly of their beer, which is on the whole mediocre in quality (it should be noted that the nationalist spin is that Regensburg’s Bier ist par excellence).The most sad arrangement is that they have no imports--Belgium is right next door, but the local beer owners and high-minded locals have never heard of Trappist ale (schade!). I was feeling downright sorry for the locals, especially given the strong, nationalistic propaganda about how good their beer is; after tasting the Aventinus, though, I cheered up a bit. Now I know they aren’t missing out entirely (one good beer is better than none, and in this case, ignorance is far from bliss). This offering has a spicy, melon-laced aroma with solid, effervescent, well-rounded flavor--it’s sweet, but not cloyingly so, and the malts are balanced out. If you make a trip through Regensburg, ignore most everything and head for the Aventinus.

marcus (9014) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 16, 2006
On tap at Wine Exchange of Sonoma. This dark brown ale poured with a massive tan head and a sweet caramel aroma. The flavor is amazingly intense for a wheat beer, and the hops and malt are quite well balanced. A very nice brew.

Bottle I picked up at zeno’s. Pours a generous head! Aroma is sweet, pleasant aroma. Dark amber/brownish color with decent head. Flavor is jam packed. Very nice mixture of malts and hops. Good amount of yeast. A Really Great Weizen-Bock. One I will drink again. Cheers!
