Well,lets pour this one...nice colour,like a dark cloudy tea,nice off white head that clings to the sides of the glass on tilting to the mouth. The aroma is malty yet fruity. The taste is excellent...a real good beer,complex without being too busy.fruity,plum like on first entering the mouth,goes slightly spicey as the carbonation kicks in and then finishes malty. Lots of body and creamy. I could not drink more then a couple of these at a sitting as they are quite strong,and would soon be unable to tell it from any other good beer.(well I could easily drink a dozen if I was going for the buzz and often I do!!!)..but it is a nice treat and I will buy this one again.

Bottle - nice malty, wheaty aroma with no bitterness at all. Very nice appearance - medium brown, but with an almost purple hue when held to the light. An almost creamy white head covering. The first flavor that hits me is alcohol ... unexpected. Of course there is malt and wheat and then, very late a hint of sourness and bitterness. A sharply fizzy mouthfeel. A nice one!

UPDATED: APR 13, 2006 Draught: Dark brown, muddy colour, nice white head. Very alcoholic flavour, but also fruity and wheaty. Very good Weizenbock. Bottle: Nice banana aroma. Appearance like above. Very malty banana flavour, very peppery.

Splendid. Only the Germans can construct such perfection. Pure in texture and flavor... well balanced in all aspects. If you can find this, buy it and enjoy its perfection.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 15, 2004
Had this at Yiayia’s in Lincoln. Brown with a white head. Aroma was of yeast, dark fruits, fig, cloves, and roastiness. This is a very malty beverage. It featured sweet dark fruits such as fig, as well as a strong yeast character. Just the slightest bit of chocolate and a chewy caramel taste to further add to the flavor. Very full bodied with a dry finish.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5095) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2011 Ah the world famous Aventinus. A fine beer and on the short list of German beers I will seek out. +++ Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle the beer poured a cloudy dark brown color with a large tan head. The aroma was sour malt and a bit of fruit and wheat. The flavor was malty, had some wheat flavor and a bit of molasses. Sweet malt lingered on the finish. Very pleasant.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2004
Dark amber color with a medium, fugaceous white head. Strong aroma of banana and herbs. Assertive flavor of banana accompanied by herbs and spices, a very mild chocolate flavor, the finish is sweet. Full body, creamy and slightly oily texture, lively carbonation. Wow, what a classic, it’s been a while since I had the pleasure to drink this beer and it’s still as good as I remembered it to be.

Hopgeek (90) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Rich deep amber with a nice tan head. Aroma is thick, sweet and malty with a strong presense of fruit, wheat & spice. Its quite nice. Flavor is spicy, sweet and has qualities of a belgian tripple. It has a fruity like banana flavor and some hints of corriander. Can taste the alcohol a bit. Palate is bubbly and very crisp. I enjoyed it.

Choos (644) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - OCT 3, 2004
Aroma: pineapple, malt and alcohol in generous proportions. Appearance: big off white head, good cloudy brown with hints of head that looks almost silty. Flavour: grainy, sweet malt, some hop bitterness at the end that stops it from being cloying. Don’t know if their were bad batches of this around but I remeber being repulsed by it the first time I had this (though I was a doppelbock drinker) and now I think it’s lovely!
